Dr. Fares Elghazi has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Very dedicated

Dr. El Ghazi has always prescribed the right medications for my son's seizures. They have been controlled; he is very kind and honest. He has a great sleep disorder office and they know the most recent solutions.

Seems like a good doc.

Seems to know what he knows and what he does not and was not afraid to say, "I think you should see ____. He knows more about your issues." That's a good man on my bet.

Does the Doctor review this report or care about this review? I have been going to this office in Covina, and I agree with the reviews below/above... very sad, I guess it's very difficult because if he cannot attend to all patients he can always have other Dr's that can help and hire more Sleep Technicians that help you with the masks... It's very difficult to be diagnosed with Sleep Apnea or other conditions and know that you are being rushed.... it's stressful enough.. Wait time is too long...

The real problem with this office is the staff. I haven't had any problems with the doctor, but the staff doesn't know what the heck they are doing, especially Amanda. Every 3 months when I go in for my shots for migraines it is the same problem; she hasn't put the paperwork into the insurance (medical) for approval and I miss my scheduled appointment. I then have debilitating migraines for a month as the doctor only gives the injections one a month at the Covina office. Amanda also lies. Our insurance called and asked her to fax some paperwork on a Thursday. She still hadn't faxed it by Friday. The insurance office called me and then I called Amanda who told me she'd done it about an hour earlier. I called the ins. co. back and it was just coming in as we spoke. Don't trust that girl.
