Ratings for Dr. Heitham Gheriani
He is very patient to go through all the tests on me. He is knowledgeable, kind, and confident about what he does. I had this sleep apnea problem for years without treatment, after surgery, it has gone now. I didn't feel I had nose and throat problems before, I really can feel the difference. Thank you so much Dr Gheriani!
Dr Gheriani is awesome! Knowledgeable, patient and kind. He may be a bit prone to unpunctuality at times but makes it up by providing detailed answers and not rushing things up when it's your time. Dr. Gheriani (along with other few doctors at Saint Paul's) has positively changed my impression of doctors in this city. Thank you!
Dr. Gheriani performed a sinus surgery on me in May 2015. My first sinus surgery, performed by another surgeon, was not successful. Dr. Gheriani used a different technique and the surgery was ultimately successful. In the months of follow-up, Dr. Gheriani was and is extremely attentive, patient, and professional. Since the surgery, I haven't had the sinus headaches, sinus and bronchial infections, and bronchitis that I usually suffer from for months, and the rather severe seasonal allergies I have had since childhood have been reduced to the point of wondering whether I still have allergies! No sneezing, no runny nose... nothing! I am so happy! I can breathe! Thank you Dr. Gheriani, for giving me full confidence in you. You are amazing! — Gale Leitch
I would like to take this opportunity to say what a wonderful experience it has been to have Dr. Gheriani as my ENT specialist. Without going into details, he was able to quickly confirm what I had thought was going on for months with a few tests. Initial antibiotic treatment hadn't worked so it became clear I was a candidate for surgery. I had the day surgery within a few weeks of seeing him. Dr. Gheeriani's follow up has been spectacular as has his advice and teaching around what clearly will be a life long process to keep my sinus's healthy has been clear and concise. I would highly recommend Dr. Gheriani and appreciate all he has done and continues to do on a follow up basis. Frank Morgan
I went to Dr. Gheriani to look into long standing concerns with my middle ears and eustachian tubes. I filled out two sheets of information for the receptionist only to have the doctor ask me for the same information. I kind of laughed and said I just spent fifteen minutes giving them all of that information, which prompted him to actually read it. I don't believe he read my doctor's thorough referral (she wrote it right in front of me), which also provided a lot of details. He didn't seem to listen to what I was telling him as I described symptoms, because I had to correct him when he repeated some back to me. He did some quick tests, none of which related to some of my bigger concerns, looked in my ears and said everything was perfect because my eardrums weren't perforated, also not a concern of mine. He snaked a camera through my sinuses and found something that was missed previously-- kudos for that. He prescribed nasal spray (they always do) and referred me for allergy testing and a hearing test. He made me feel uncomfortable the entire time, stopping multiple times to ask if I was ok (he hadn't even started the examination), which made me wonder what I was doing that seemed out of sorts to him. I left feeling unheard, convinced I was put through a turnstile at a busy clinic, and given unnecessary referrals further into the system. The doctor didn't even bother to try to explain why I might be having the symptoms I do. My own doctor though I might need to have a CT scan to get a look at the structures inside my ear. Nope everything's fine.
Dr. Gheriani is an incredibly kind and talented ear nose and throat specialist. He thoroughly explains the procedure and is very reassuring. Farzana, the office support person, is super friendly and easy to talk to. The endoscopic turbinoplasty has allowed me to breathe and sleep so much better. The quality of my life has improved thanks to Dr. Gheriani.
Have had an initial meeting with him prior to my surgery. It was very reassuring to meet with him as I am very nervous ...he was professional, gave me as much time as I needed and very clear re the process. I have a silent sinus ...who knew. Glad to see such reviews as it confirms my impression.
