This was my first appointment. I chose Dr Ganger because of his expertise in cirrhosis and transplant surgery. I have confidence that as an expert, he will optimize my medical care to achieve the best possible outcome. Dr Ganger was well informed about my previous care, having read my past medical records. He advised a treatment plan that I have confidence in and that is clinically sound. He ordered meds and a procedure, advised me on the risks of COVID exposure. He was serious, focused, all business. I appreciated that.

Dr. Ganger is another example of the Excellent continuum of care provided by the professional and talented medical team at NorthWestern Hospital. When I arrived to meet Dr. Ganger I was under the impression that I needed a liver transplant and my pancreas organ was in severe jeopardy. Dr. Ganger clearly explained my CT scan and calmed me to know that I was not dying and with his plan I should be able to live a good life going forward. He and his assistant Emily, provided great follow up care and attention to my condition. Professional, Competent and caring medical team. Thank you and God Bless You.

I was late about 40 minutes from my appointment today and because I received the wrong directions. When I arrived at the reception, the registered nurse checked me in because my doctor offered this late visit. Thanks to Dr. Granger a lot- I thought he could have canceled my appointment, but instead of that, he was nice and I didn't see him angry or complain. I appreciated his ethical decision making on my late visit today a lot! That was really the true value of a good doctor.
