Dr. Ghoniem is exceptional. Not only in surgery, but in explaining everything before and after.
Rude and inpatient Dr. As to your reply, that's no excuse to yell at a patient.
My husband strongly recommends Dr. Ghoniem. He is the most compassionate and caring doctor. He has wonderful bedside manner, genuinely cares about my husband's health, and has helped us through some difficult challenges. We love Dr. Ghoniem!
He is the “BEST” !! 👍
Dr. Ghoniem is the best female urologic doctor I have had the pleasure of meeting. He was my physician in Weston, FL from 2004 to 2007 when he left to go to CA. California's gain, Florida's loss. I recently had a question about a new procedure and emailed him. He did not hesitate to respond and I was most appreciative. He is missed.
Very impressed with everything about the experience. Very brief wait time, every person was courteous and professional. The doctors were extremely patient and thorough.I felt listened to and the explanations and recommendations were top notch.
Dr. Ghoniem is a true angel sent to help me have a healthier future. He is kind, thorough and a true blessing. I’ve searched for many years looking for a solution to my urological challenges and finally, after several years of stricture and infections I am functioning normally. I will forever be grateful.Joelle Jessen

Dr Ghoniem is an excellent doctor. He is kind and listened to my questions. He answered them in a way I understood. He took his time, I did not feel rushed. His staff is very professional also. They explain what the procedure is and the results. I have recommended Dr Ghoniem to my friends and I made my appointment based on the recommendation of a friend.
