Other than the wait time which was a little bit longer than I expected, I would highly recommend Dr. Ghalchi. He was very attentive and took time to listen to all of my concerns. He was out of network with myinsurance but I would still go back to him if I needed to.

I don't even know where to begin. First, I was already experiencing so much anxiety over having to look for a Cardiologist. I have secretly booked like 3 different appointments with other Cardiologists only to cancel because I was simply tooafraid of going. This time, I was committed. I read Dr,. Ghalchi's reviews and decided I wanted to see him. Boy was I so happy that I did! First, I walked in the office and was greeted by Tiffany one of his nurses. She was super friendly and smiled a lot. Not quite young enough to be my daughter but she reminded me so much of her because she was just so sweet. After filling out some quick 2 page paperwork I was in seeing the doctor. From the moment I checked in till I saw the doctor it was probably about 10-15min - NOT BAD AT ALL. Dr. Ghalchi listened to me ramble on and on about my symptoms and even though some of my thoughts were a little scattered, he took the time to jot down the super important stuff. He was engaging and asked so many questions. I didn't feel judged by him when I was being completely open about my medical history, he just truly cared about what was concerning me and genuinely wanted to get to the bottom of it so we can hurry and make me feel better. I also felt like he was in no rush to misdiagnose - we are going to take all of the necessary steps and tests to find out what is wrong. I was brought into a room and they performed an EKG and bloodwork. They even gave me the opportunity to run out really quick and feed the meter so I wouldn't get a ticket. Not once feeling like they were annoyed. Doctor came back and told me they were going to run my blood and schedule another appointment for some more physical tests and then go from there. I was in at 1230 and out by 130! Did all of this in an hour - FANTASTIC. I recommend this doctor and doctor's office to anyone. If you need a cardiologist, I recommend this one. He is a keeper! :)

My visit with Dr. Ghalchi was as smooth as could be. After an initial consultation, he developed a thorough gameplan to try and come up with a comprehensive solution. Everything was done on site that same day and it was all an extremely efficient process.

Trips to the doctor are certainly not my favorite pastime. Prior to my visit to Dr. Ghalchi I was not sure what to expect, especially not having ever visited a cardiologist specialist. I am glad I did. His demeanor is personableand also very professional. He listened to my concerns, made me feel comfortable and was able to detect what was happening. I am definitely referring him to family and friends in the future.

I showed up 10 minutes early and was still seen immediately. Front desk staff was very nice. I didn't spend very much time with Dr. Ghalchi himself, we just went over my medical history and concerns then he passed me alongto a nurse to run some tests. She was fantastic and I wish I could remember her name!

I cannot say enough about my visit with Dr. Ghalchi. Rarely do you find doctors who actually make time to listen to a patient, let alone answer all your questions and calm your fears. His "bedside manner" is top notch, youcan tell he shares your concerns. Their check-in process was smooth, my wait was less than 10mins. Before going in for my tests, I spoke with the doc for almost 20mins, rare in today's "pack the doctor's calendar" world. I am extremely happy with Dr. Ghalchi and his staff for their impeccable service. Thank you again for showing that there are still good docs out-there. Sas P.

Dr. Ghalchi was good, but I didn't appreciate being seen by his nurse in training. My appointment took two and a half hours because two of the tests she performed on me had to be redone by another nurse. They sentme away with a pacemaker but forgot to activate it—if I hadn't caught that myself, I would have spent three days mistakenly thinking my heart was being monitored. But I appreciated his thoroughness and that he took my concerns so seriously.

Dr Ghalchi spent a lot of time with me in his office before he began the exam and carefully listened to all of my problems. He was kind, soft-spoken and had a wonderful bedside manner. He thoroughly explained all of thetests he was ordering and what he was looking for. I highly recommend this doctor.

I had never seen a cardiologist and reasonably was quite nervous going into the appointment. When I arrived, the office was clean and nice, staff friendly, and Dr. Ghalchi was super receptive, welcoming, calming, and not even a bit judgemental.He made me less nervous and helped resolve my concerns. I'd recommend him to anyone.

I needed an appointment the same day due to a condition I was having that was stressing me out. Dr. Ghalchi was available same day. He is a very nice Dr. with an easy going personality. Was thorough with his examinationsand questions. His office staff are pleasant and very helpful as well. I'm going back to him even if he is out of network. I need to see him for follow up appointments so will come back with more feedback.

I have only been once thus far, but I plan on continuing with him. He genuinely listened as I told him what was wrong, and is actively trying to figure out what is going on with me even though it maybe mental instead of physical. I'm always just looking for someone intelligent who cares, and actually tries to help. That's hard to come by and he fits the bill.

Very nice and professional. Dr. Ghalchi took the time to get to know me and understand me and my medical history. Although I was seeing him for something simple he did make some recommendations as to how I should proceed withother unrelated health issues. He was very knowledgeable and kind. Unfortunately, Dr. Ghalchi informed me on my way out that he was not going to be accepting Cigna coverage for much longer, so I will have to find a different doctor. He was very good and I am disappointed that I won't be able to have him as my primary care doctor.
