Specialties

Dr. Fayez K Ghishan has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Outstanding man, outstanding doctor

I am a patient of Dr. Ghishan's and I disagree heavily with the above statements pertaining to his arrogance and lack of knowledge in his field. He has always been extremely proactive in addressing my symptoms and disease head on and quickly, and though I know I'm not his only patient, by far, he's always made me feel like his top priority. He explains every procedure and piece of medical terminology in great detail, and I really feel as though he is talking with me and not at me. He is hard working, and amazing with patient care. If me being an admiring patient isn't enough proof, you can refer to his 5 "Best Doctors in America" awards. If you have not had him as a doctor, you cannot accurately describe how he interacts with patients. And I highly doubt that a man of extreme humility, like Dr. Ghishan, would have his staff talk him up in a review when he has other responsibilities he diligently spends time on.

BEWARE

On first glance, this is a qualified well recommended doctor. First off, with his bedisde personalilty these reviews are mostly fictitious and probably posted by his department, He is incredibly rude, not great with kids and EXTREMELY arrogant. After digging just a little in the medical community (my husband is a physician), Dr. Ghishan has a long time reputation for bullying staff, other doctors and foremost, placing money before care of children, He is a fraud, and is lacking any kind of real training in his field. Don't let the titles he has obtained fool you. He is a shrewd power hungry business man and AWFUL doctor, not to mention just plain unliked in the medical community.

Dr. Ghishan is great!

After another peds GI doctor proved to be lame, Dr. Ghishan took over my daughter's case. He spent time with my daughter's peds cardiologist and got to know her unique heart/lungs situation before trying to do any invasive tests. He is always very sweet to my daughter and makes her feel good about herself. I am glad that Dr. Ghishan is still willing to take my daughter even though she is now 20 yrs old. (she is developmentally delayed due to strokes, etc) I always recommend Dr. Ghishan to anyone I know .
