Patient reviews for Dr. Pritha Ghosh
Thorough and compassionate
Extremely patient and thorough - I didn’t feel rushed, even when I knew our appointment was likely going over the typical allotment
Excellent as well as her lookalike assistant Lindsay, wish they had cleared up she wasn't the doctor, not sure if there's a patient/med student privilege. Thorough, middle of the road in her approach. I think saying followup visit if needed was a nice touch. Thanks.
The Dr. gave me an exhaustive exam and detailed suggestions for handling my condition and treating my symptoms. I appreciate her thoroughness.
I have seen Dr. Ghosh over several years on neirological consuls. She is very nice, knowledgeable, and thorough in her evaluations. She had a very good bedside manner ad makes one relax as she examines you. I would highly recommend her services to others. I trust her judgement. Alan K.
Very efficient and professional.
She is more than what you can hope for in a competent neurologist! She is patient, attentive and thorough and has a razor sharp diagnosis. Leaves no stone unturned. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
Excellent professional, knowledgeable, understanding, great people's skills. I thought that she was thorough in her examination, most attentive in listening to my concerns, and superb in explaining her medical conclusion and the recommendations to follow.

Dr. Ghosh was very professional and thorough. I had several competing factors going on and she took the time to listen, answer questions and provide feedback.
Very thorough, taking notes, and listening carefully - amazing!
Wish all doctors had more time to look at the details of and explain results of tests, MRIs and the like.
She was great - she was working with a med student and was patient with both of us. She listened, problem-solved, offered realistic solutions, and didn't automatically assign more invasive tests or medications.
She was very thorough and took her time. I appreciated that I could ask her as many questions as I needed to ask and not feel rushed. Highly recommend Dr. Grosh!
I really liked how she listened to all my concerns and took her time to evaluate and discuss everything she was testing
