Really excellent customer service at this location, and Dr. Ghaw was very kind and personable, and listened to me seriously. She was helpful in diagnosis and was clear about next steps and follow-up. She explained things well, and in effort to be thorough and for my own peace of mind, re-ordered blood tests that a previous rheumatologist dismissed as false positives. I highly recommend Dr. Ghaw to anyone who suspects an autoimmune issue and has had a difficult time getting diagnosed or being taken seriously!

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

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!!

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!
