Patient Reviews ?
The Best! Dr. Ghostine was professional, caring, and knowledgeable. After seeing four neurosurgeons for an issue with three of my discs, and a misaligned spine, Dr. Ghostine proved to be the one to give the correct diagnosis, and perform my surgeries. After years of pain I am now in recovery and on my way to regaining my life! I am extremely grateful for having found Dr. Ghostine. I would recommend Dr. Ghostine to all my friends and family.
Very kind and compassionate Doctor. Would and have recommended him Cervical repair (of previous surgery), and fusion went great! Best I have felt in years!
I have suffered from back pain all my life. I was recently told I had scoliosis. I was treated for years with pain medications and injections. Dr. Ghostine performed a scoliosis correction. It was very hard initially, but looking back now, I would do it all over again. I am hardly ever in pain, and am able to function and go through the day without pain.
I have had 3 surgeries on my back prior to meeting Dr. Ghostine. I was unable to walk because of my low back and leg pain. I was diagnosis with scoliosis. Dr. Ghostine's surgery finally got me better. I recommend him to any patient with a complex spinal disease.
Dr. Ghostine's manner inspires confidence. He is kind and gentle. My family was impressed that he takes time to explain things. The result of my recent back surgery was excellent. He gave me my life back.
My experience with Dr. Ghostine was very positive; he fixed EVERYTHING that has caused my back to be miserable for several years. I am very glad he was available on our insurance plan; if something happens in the future, I hope he can do the work
Dr Ghostine was recommended to me by another patient who had back surgery and was very happy afterward. I saw him for a herniated disc causing sciatica and was impressed by his kind manner; he explained the surgery to me clearly and took his time. I had my surgery and since then I have felt much better and returned to work. I would strongly recommend him.
My leg pain was preventing me from doing anything. After Dr. Ghostine's surgery, I am back to my normal life. Excellent surgeon!
I was referred to Dr. Ghostine by my neurologist, due to problems observed on an MRI. Dr. Ghostine recommended surgery due to severe compression in my neck resulting in severe pain and weakness on my right side. I can not recommend this doctor more, his compassion and skill were amazing and recovery was easy. I can't imagine allowing anyone else to operate on my spine and have already referred friends to him.
Dr. Ghostine has helped me get my life back. I was unable to walk due to a spinal injury. I am now on the road to recovery and things get better every day.
Excellent doctor. My back pain feels much better after his surgery. I recommend him very highly
I had a 2 cm tumor on the motor cortex of my brain. Dr Ghostine performed the surgery. He was awesome with my family before and after the surgery as well as the followup in the hospital and in his office. I have been around many doctors after the onset of cancer but this dr is a blessing!. He is well versed, very patient and very knowledgeable in his field. without him I would not be alive today!. I have made him a part of my extended family and call him my savior on earth. I feel awesome today, and able to continue my life with my family. I would recommend him to anybody who wants to be treated as a person and not a patient. He treats everyone as if they are his family members, thus caring for them in the best way possible. I LOVE DR GHOSTINE!
I like this doctor. He is patient and respectful. He will get out of his way to help out. My neck pain is much better after his surgery
Outstanding Surgeon. Exceptionally Skilled Professionally. Exceptional Bedside Manners. Was fortunate to have been treated during an Emergency Room admission and the following Spinal Surgery. Would recommend fully without any hesitation whatsoever.
Very caring surgeon. My weakness in my legs is much better thanks to his surgery
I had difficulty walking, and excruciating leg pain. Now, after the surgery, I am able to walk and my leg pain is gone. I highly recommend him, he is a great doctor
I went to Dr Ghostine in November 2011 without the use of my legs, suffering Chronic Back Pain as well as a very severe curved Spine all caused by several (7) Back Surgeries performed by an Orthopedic Surgeon in Fullerton. Most of which ended with dibilitating Staph Infections. Dr Ghostine perfomed surgery #1 (12/2011) Cleaning scar tissue from my spinal canal resulting in some use of my legs. Dr Ghostine would not give up so he
A spinal tumor was found when I was unable to stand on my feet. Dr. Ghostine performed a surgery on me. Thereafter, I was able to walk and my pain resolved. I am very grateful to him. I greatly recommend him.
Dr. Ghostine performed a surgery on my back. I am very thankful for his help. I gained back my life as I am able to perform many of the activities I avoided because of the leg pain. He is an excellent doctor.
Listens, examines, and explains diagnoses. He discussed options with you. Very knowledgeable, and excellent surgeon.
Nice clinic. Staff friendly. Nice hospital. Excellent surgeon.
Very Caring, knew exactly what was wrong and how to treat it. Human Great Surgeon = the way healthcare should be
I have been a ,or I should say had been a nurse for over 30 years up until "05" when a Dr. Jeffery Gaffery used 8 in bolts, 3/4 wide to put in me, i weighed 116 at the time, as was to only have had a lamectomy L-5 S-1, but when I woke up I knew something was terribly wrong wrong. I also was taken off the heavy narcotics I had been on for over 2 years, and he had spoken with my Pain Management Doctor who told him "Do not touch her med's she is currently on" He said he would not do so, but then took me off everything, and I ended up going into acute narcotic withdrawls, and never was given anthing fot detox protocol. I then ended up curled up in s ball due to the sever cramping in my stomach, bone pain all the normal signs/symptoms one has coming off Ms Contin, and Duragesic. They also gave me medications that I had told them I was allergic to, and refused to tell me what medications they were giving me, the nurses stated"Just take them"I ended up with RSD, Neurogenic bowel/bladder, numbness on my right mid back area, right buttocks, right leg weakness, my right leg goes out from under me, I can't wear shoes on my right foot as my toes curl up, I have many memory problems, and when I woke up I had lost my memory 100%, and could not spell at all. I also did not ever have my doctor ever call me when I called him for help, for pain medication, his PA finally came in, and stated"just push the black buttom" I stated" I would if it was plugged in to the wall, and into my IV" he then turned around and saw that the machine had been removed from my IV, and moved across the room, and that I had not been able to get any pain medication. He said he would have a nurse come ASAP, 4 hours later one came, and hooked it up.The excuse was that if you give a pain shot you have to unplug, this pump, This is NOT TRUE AT ALL!!!!Ok, now as for Dr. Ghostine. I just can't believe the difference betwene him, and that other doctor. For onething he didn't just see me for 5 minutes, and then send someone in to schedule an appointment for surgery for me.He talked to me, and this was also after I had been seen by another doctor first, and examined for a very very long time, as least 45-90 minutes. I have never seen anything like this before in all the years I have been a nurse. Then Dr. Ghostine came in, and he too did a great evaulation of me, and ordered several films to be done. He said that I had things that I knew I had, but have never been able to get anyone to tell me this, or dx with it. so I just have been living with such intense pain all the time that I can't function. I don't have a life at all.I don't want more pain medications!!! I just want the pain to go away. I have been on the same pain meds for ove 5 years, and I do know that I need to increase them for me to get relief, but I also do not want to be all sleepy, and drugged out either.I looked at his site, and finally have hope. My dear friend was just in a motercycle accident the otherday, as he had a brain anurysurm, and it really got me thinking about my own health, the way I am living, ect. I just want more for me. I also want to be able to get back doing what I waw so great at, nursing, as that was my PASSION, and he took it away from me.I know that dr. Ghostine was sent to me for a reason, my other doc refered me, like my dear friend who left this place not to long ago used to say "It's A Godsidence"Thank You Dr. Ghostine for your being here to help us all!Deboran Wesson
