The visit was conducted by telephone which was very well.

March 30, 2020 3:22 PM

I have never had a bad experience with Doctor Ghannam, not even on my bad days.

March 29, 2020 5:40 AM

He does the routine things, i.e., check my vitals. He appears patient, listens to my health concerns and gives advice, or write prescriptions as needed.

March 26, 2020 6:52 AM

As always when I visit my primary provider is very good for me in every way concerning my health.

March 23, 2020 5:36 PM

Very thorough and informative. He greets you like family and what's to know if everything working out, if not he wants to help find what does.

February 17, 2020 1:53 PM

Feel uncomfortable at times when the doctor has someone document notes on my visits. Because of the number of patients he sees, he is assigned a transcriber. Here this person has information, about my health history. However, when I request info about my medical history I get the "side eye" .

February 13, 2020 12:23 PM

Doctor was very nice and called me next day to give me results of lab (blood work) and explain results I had questions of.

December 16, 2019 5:23 PM

Helped me get my Colonoscopy appointment.

December 9, 2019 11:50 PM

As usual, Dr. Ghannam was efficient and smart. Because I know HMOs pressure their doctors time-wise assembly-line fashion I try to be an efficient patient and have myself organized. I also keep from having casual conversation with him (though sometimes I have to indulge) because I know the doctors are under pressure and probably have a large caseload. I do hope they are not overloaded.

December 3, 2019 8:44 AM

My recent experience with Dr. Ghannam went very well. He is so easy to talk to, and a good listener.
