Dr Ghouse is fantastic. The best doctor I have seen our of four there. She needs longer appointments and more openings to see patients regularly. 30-60 days is too long if a protocol isn't working. Dr Ghouse considers my feedback, any questions I have. She is constantly brainstorming. She comes to our appointments prepared, she has a plan of care and adjusts it as we speak. She is encouraging me not to give up on resolving these complicated problems and to keep trying new things. She reads my test results carefully. Other providers I had sidnt look at my records until we were on zoom which was frustrating. She is up to date on the latest research, and she doesn't make me feel stupid for asking questions. She sees the link between problems as well. I look forward to my appointments with her, despite not feeling great, because she listens to me and is analyzing my health data carefully. I wish all doctors had her empathy and analytical abilities.
