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!
