my provider is very sweet, we did have some difficulty getting peer to peer reviews done for test with insurance but got that resolved. Also worked with me so I could see her rather than a PA since I travel from Ky to see a specialist. I want to be very pro active in my care and I feel she understands that.

I was seen for the living donor program. Dr Ganesh sat and spoke with me like we have known each other for years. In my almost 35 years of life I can say that she is one of the very few persons I have met that not only have passion and pride for what they do, but care even more for the human race. I would see her as a care provider over anyone I have met in the field of medicine and recommend her expertise to anyone in need of the best care that one could provide. If I am not selected as a donor I can say that the experience I had with your staff and Dr Ganesh was truly a day I will always remember, and be grateful for being in the presence of such kind, caring, and thorough professional's

Dr. Ganesh is really a great person!


explains everything very well.


During my time in need while batteling an awful illnes, The care provided to me was absolutely exceptional.

Saw a Fellow who was being shadowed by an intern. They left, then came back w/ Dr. Dr reviewed case history, asked when next TACE is scheduled for, answered my questions. Positive interaction & feedback from Dr. concerning the Living Donor Program & my website. The Drs. are always kind, gracious, & are always willing to answer all questions. All the Medical Staff that we have seen in the Clinic have been outstanding!! They go above & beyond what is a minimum standard of care & they strive to provide the best care possible, which in my case they have been outstanding in every respect. I feel that this group of Physicians are the right Drs. In the right place at the right time with the right knowledge skills & equipment & support Staff to help me make it possible to get rid of my Cancer & maybe live long enough to see some grandchildren...

Dr. Ganesh is the best doctor I have ever had in my 50 years! She has thoroughly reviewed all my testes results and formulated a plan to help me achieve my health goals and I just received a clean bill of health on August 2!

Dr. Ganesh carefully explained possible future health risks associated with my condition in a very clear and courteous manner. She made sure I understood everything and took time to listen. I would rate her as the very best of the best and consider myself very fortunate to be in her care.

I have had excellent care from this office. Always prompt, tests that are necessary are scheduled immediately. Very high quality of care, concern, and efficiency.


I am very pleased with Dr. Ganesh. She is very easy to understand and helped with all the questions I had. I will defiantly stay under her care.

we could not be any more pleased with the care we have received up to this point in our journey to get me well. all the way from the receptionist to the nurses to the coordinators to the doctors PAs and anyone else that is part of our team. when you are facing a lifew threatening disease or situation the importance of trusting your team of doctors, nurses, and all others involved is critical and we have total faith and trust in our team.

this was a consult for liver transplant protocol and evaluation.

dr Ganesh is a excellent md. took time to listen and explain things.

Dr. Ganesh could not have been any more kind, caring and professional. Her expertise was apparent.

When I arrived I was very nervous about my health issues, Dr Ganesh adressed my concerns and when I left there I felt very confident in the information that was given to me and more calm about my health decisions. You can tell that Dr. Ganesh is a caring Dr. I would Dr. Ganesh to any of my friends of family.
