Patients’ Testimonials

AWESOME experience. (I never take the time to write reviews but my experience here warrants me taking the time to do so). Clean waiting room w/ TV (on Netflix, I might add), and a short wait to see Dr. G. His nurse Nancy is efficient & makes you feel comfortable. Dr. Ghattas has a calming presence and I appreciate that he takes the time to walk you through the MRI images, shows diagrams and explains in detail (& in layman’s terms) what to expect before/during/after treatment.

Dr Ghattas is awesome. His office scheduled me quickly along with my MRI. Aside from his general knowledge of Orthopedics, he takes the time to explain your condition and treatment and is very nice to talk to. His office staff even commented how they liked working for him. Overall I highly recommend Dr Ghattas and plan to see him again if I need an Ortho doc. ?

I was referred to SPORT because of a broken fifth metacarpal in my left hand. After physical exams, X-rays, and asking me about my activity types, Dr. Ghattas did an excellent job of recommending the treatment that was needed to maximize the future use of my hand. He explained exactly why he wanted to perform surgery to re-align the broken bone properly. The procedure went very well, and the follow-ups helped me to return to normal activity with no setbacks.

Dr. Ghattis is amazing! I broke 3 small bones in my left elbow, and he had to put a metal plate with 6 pins to hold it together. 6 weeks later there is a long scar, but it looks like I rested my arm on something that left a wrinkle on my skin. It looks wonderful, and he truly is a great doctor and miracle worker!! After only 3 weeks of physical therapy, my range of motion is unbelievable!! I would recommend him to everyone!!!

Pam Hedtke

As a person in his early 60’s and facing surgery for the first time, I had a significant amount of trepidation regarding the impending process. Dr. Ghattas put me at ease by being patient, honest and knowledgeable. I was exactly 2 weeks post-retirement when Dr. Ghattas successfully performed my surgery. I can now play golf, workout and thoroughly enjoy my post-work existence. I can’t thank Ghattas, and the physical therapists he referred me to, enough for my transition back to normalcy.
