Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Ghaw is an extremely compassionate and capable provider. I feel like she really listens to what you have to say and uses your input to inform her decision-making process. I find her to be reasonable and very kind...I highly recommend her!!
Great experience. Dr. Ghaw is so professional, kind, and made me feel comfortable instantly. I feel very confident in her care and am so glad I went to her.
Very thoughtful and listened
Dr Ghaw was very personable putting me at ease. She asked many questions and attentively listened to me. She then did a head to toe assessment and talked about her feelings and plan and answered all my questions. She gave me great confidence.
Dr. Ghaw was professional and thorough with great bedside manner! I felt comfortable and well taken care of.
I was a new patient and very nervous and anxious and Dr. Ghaw was extremely understanding and calmed me down a lot. I trust that whatever my diagnosis results in she will do he very best to find me the proper treatment and help me get better.
I got what I wanted. She explained clearly about my condition, medication and treatment. Less than 15 minute talk gave me great satisfaction,
I like Dr. Ghaw, but it is only my first appointment and would hold up judgement as to how I see follow up with her staff for medicine refills, appointments etc. I have to say I loved that the blood work was done in the office and had to only go downstairs for X-rays, very convenient
Very patient, and nice....
She was thorough. She also took the time to give explanation and she answered all my questions well.
Dr Ghaw was great and very professional she explained everything and answered all my questions. Dr Ghaw's administrative staff on the other hand is a different story. I've never experienced such incompetence in my life! One of her staffers was an Asian gentleman with a thick accent I could barely understand a word he said. I was also given a urine test with no instruction as to where I should leave the sample, I was forced to come back into the office and hand it back to one of the staffers who took it with their hands! I was so sceeved!!! The next day I get a message from Dr Ghaw's office to call back, there was an issue with my labs, I thought something was wrong I was so worried. When I get in contact with Dr Ghaw's office I was told I have to retake the lab tests. Personally I think my labs were misplaced, I was never given an explanation as to why my labs needed to be repeated and, when my lab results were in everything was fine. Bottom line I will visit Dr Ghaw again but only at the Mt Sinai facility uptown. Stay away from the Chinatown facility! Horrible!!
Dr Ghaw is an excellent, exemplary doctor. She is very knowledgeable and she has a very affable attitude towards patients. Thank you doctor.

An exceptionally good doctor. Very knowledgable and informative, great listener. Highly recommended.
Friendly, knowledgeable and asked questions to learn more about my situation and offer her expertise.
She's very attentive and I never feel rushed.
The doctor was a delightful person to have administering my medical examination, this was my first time ever seeing her. When we go to a doctors office, we except them to give hands on examines, as she did, but our time in examination was spent in discussion, as at time is necessary. It was a change for the good: discussion, in which we all should have!
Dr. Haw listened to my concerned, asked good questions and was helpful to my issues.
I have found Dr. Ghaw to be excellent, both as a physician and as a person.
Not much - she discredits her profession

Very professional and explained things very clearly
Extremely friendly staff. Minimal wait time and thorough and efficient check up
She listened. Very friendly. Very knowledgeable. Open to my beliefs about treatment. I highly recommend her, especially those with autoimmune disorders!
This was my first time seeing Dr. Ghaw. I had gone to see her after going to another rheumatologist who had the worst bedside manner ever. But Dr. Ghaw was just the opposite. I only had to wait 5 minutes before being seen. She was not distracted and listened to my explanation for being there, asked a lot of pertinent questions regarding my symptoms, and thoroughly explained my test results. She also allowed me to ask questions and answered them intelligently and without necessarily using all the medical jargon. I found her to be professional yet friendly and trust that she will continue to be in future visits.
She spends time and is well educated and highly knowledgeable - it seems. Had one appointment only with blood tests to follow, but appreciated her non-rushed and better than you expect these days "bedside manner"
I couldn't recommend more highly.
Professional, caring, and reasuring
Dr. Ghaw was really great. Took the time to answer all my questions, really friendly, and of course, knows her field very well.
Dr. Ghaw is exceptionally patient and truly listens. She has a lovely bedside manner and she is thorough in her approach. I highly recommend her as I feel she knows her "stuff" and will go to bat for you until she finds a root cause.
The doctor was extremely thorough, patient and most of all provided answers to all my questions.
Very gentle and knowledgable. Her nurse was upbeat and efficient. Will absolutely return (hopefully not too soon!)
professional, knowledgable, friendly, instructional
AMAZING. So thorough and patient.
