Dr. Ghossein understands what first impression is all about. The minute you stepped in her office, you felt that you chose the right doctor based on your treatment. Dr. Ghossein is also very polite, patient and humble, and she goes the extra mile to give her patients the best care possible, but also communicates with them so that they will not be be in the dark or left wondering what did she mean by that. You walk away from her office with a smile, because you just interacted with someone who really cares about giving you the best possible health care.

I would recommend Dr. Ghossein to anyone needing a nephrology consult or physician. Beyond her expertise and experience, she is a caring, supportive, and engaged physician, who explains complex medical issues clearly and responds to all questions.
