Patient Google Reviews



"St. Luke's Regional Health Care was an outstanding experience. I walked out the office in just amazement and great fullness of visit. Dr. Ghaly was kind, knowledgeable, and patient with my questions and kids. He makes you feel completely comfortable, he isn't rushing threw the visit to the next patient like most medical offices. Tiffany was super nice when taking vitals. Laura went above and beyond, as soon as she found out my pharmacy hadn't filled my prescription in a timely manner, she quickly called them and made sure it was ready within a few minutes of her calling."


"Great office with great staff. I have been seeing Dr. Ghaly for over 10 years. He takes his time with each patient so that you are not feeling rushed. It's an asset to be a all in one provider with in house labs, diagnostic ultrasounds and in house allergy therapy. My family and I will continue to see him for many years to come. This is why he is always voted the Best Family Physician for 6 years in a row."


"My husband and I have been with Dr.Ghaly for many years. He and his staff are kind, courtious and knowldgeable. He makes you feel at ease right away with a hand shake and a smile. He listens to you and answers your questions in a way that you will understand. He truly goes above and beyond. One of the best doctors in town."


"I have been seeing Dr. Ghaly shortly after moving in town, I am a patient that is difficult at times and I have to say he is my "PERFECT FIT". He takes his time to listen to me and my issues and works with me so that I am comfortable with my next step. I love that in a doctor because we aren't just people on his schedule. He treat all his patients as if they were family that shows he cares for each and everyone of us. I am very HAPPY, LUCKY to have him as my doctor & caring for my health."
