Dr Ghai is professional and knowledgeable about pediatric diabetic patients. I trust her with my son's care.

November 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Ghai continues to be an excellent pediatric endocrinologist. She has not only helped keep an eye on our daughter's thyroid issues, but has done a great job in watching her pubertal development as well. She has kept us informed of any areas of concern and taken the steps needed to address those issues. There is really not much more we could ask for from her and the work she has done with our daughter.

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Ghai and her staff are amazing! they've always been available to help whenever I have questions or concerns about my child. they genuinely care about how my child is doing and how to help maintain a care plan that works for him!

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Ghai was friendly and helpful. She offered us a method by which she would diagnose my child's condition.

July 30, 2019 7:00 PM

It was a great experience. I had health concerns and she gave me information on how to handle this health diet and put me at east with my other health concerns and explain thoroughly what would happen and the process of what would follow. Very very satisfied with Dr. Gail.
