I have many Dr's for my medical issues and Dr. El-Gharbawy is far and away the most knowledgeable in all aspects about my health including areas not even associated with Genetics. She is very personable, showing great concern with my health and takes more time to discuss all of my issues than any Dr. I've ever seen. She is the best and I always feel better about my health issues after speaking with her and her staff which also is excellent.
visit was very pleasurable
LoVE our experience with Dr. Areeg! She is extremely knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, and thorough!
All experiences with Dr. ElGharbawy and her staff have been good ones. The doctor is caring and concerned and extremely knowledgeable. I am able to trust her judgement and know that I am in qualified hands.
Dr Areeg is very thorough in her exams and follow up care. She needed to talk to 2 other doctors out of UPMC network about health issues and called my mom within a week after my appointment to update her. she's kind and compassionate when discussing your concerns and thoughts.
The genetics doctor and genetics counselor were very helpful and answered all of our questions.
A more direct connection between clinical and research sides as well as behavioral assessment of current and our child's development correlated with recent test results for a more holistic assessment is desired. ( This survey software doesn't allow me to review more than the last 3 lines of my response, so I apologize if this a convoluted sentence.)
She came very quickly, seemed to be knowledgeable about my child's history and how we were keeping up with her medications. Also, she provided me with some information on what to do if my child were to become sick that I hadn't heard before, she even explained the reasons behind the approach to caring for her genetic condition while sick with a virus or flu.
I see many doctors and by far this is the best Dr. that I have ever seen in terms of knowledge and concern about my health.
Best doctor I've ever had
We absolutely love Dr. Al-Gharbawy. She and her staff are the most compassionate, understanding group of professionals. No matter what the question or concern we may have they are very prompt with responding and we are very grateful to have them watching over our little man!
