Dr. Ghatan performed a rare and most delicate operation on our daughter. His compassion and empathy made the nightmarish experience somewhat bearable. He is caring and kind. He took the time to educate us and to answer all of our questions; he knew what our daughter was feeling, physically and emotionally; he knew what we were experiencing and respected how scared we were. His confidence made us comfortable and we trusted him to do the very best for our daughter. Which he did. Brilliantly. We were so impressed that we nominated him for a Gold Doc award from the Gold Foundation (Humanism in Medicine).

Dr Ghatan is a great listener and very patient with questions. He is a measured professional who will not encourage the knife as the best solution to a problem. He is confident and warm. A genuine good person and pleasure to have in such difficult times.

Excellent consulation

We met with Dr. Ghatan today to discuss concerns of plagiocephaly, craniosynostosis, and a vacuum bump which had not healed well. He took time to discuss how our baby's head is growing and answered all of our questions. We left feeling well informed and at ease with the good diagnosis which we were given. I hope we do not have the need to go back but would recommend him to anyone in need of a neurosurgeon.
