What Patients Say About Us

My parents have been going to Dr.Ganelis for several years now, and they always kept telling me great things about her. Well, the time came for me to make an appointment a couple of weeks ago. I was running late coming from work (you know L.A. traffic) and was not even sure if the doctor is going to be able to see me that day, but despite being completely booked Dr Ganelis still found time to accommodate me. I was really impressed by her level of knowledge, attention to all my concerns, and professional advice I received. Not to mention that she took her time to listen to me, perform all needed tests and answer all my questions. Nowadays when some doctors perform their exam in seconds jumping from one exam room to another the experience with Dr Ganelis was really refreshing. It really felt like an "old school" Medical Care when the word "care" in this phrase actually meant something. Vladimir R., Los Angeles, CA
I barely ever write reviews, but not sharing the amazing experience in the offices of Dr Ganelis is doing yelp users a disfavor. Hands down one of the best doctors I've ever been to-not only is this excellently educated and trained physician a knowledgeable and wise one, but her sweet clans caring personality, warm and attentive bedside manner, sincere concern for her patients wellbeing, and determination take the very best individualized care of each patient is simply beyond words! Being a physician myself, I must say I am truly grateful For having found such a wonderful and caring doctor! Thank you very much, Dr Ganelis! Diana K., Los Angeles, CA
I am so happy I don't have poor vision in my left eye anymore. Thank you Dr. Ganelis for for such a great job! I totally trust you! It was an honor to have found you! Susan M., Los Angeles, CA
Dr. Irina is the best surgeon in the world. She's done a wonderful job and she knows what is the best for the patient. I recommend her to ALL patients. I am 100% satisfied. Anthony P., Los Angeles, CA
STANDING OVATION!!! I've been a patient of Dr. Ganelis for 5 years and she is one of the most caring, efficient, and dedicated doctors I've ever met. She demonstrates compassion and patience. Dr. Ganelis is exceptionally kind, perceptive, and responsible. She has excellent communication skills; her sensitivity to individuals' medical needs is outstanding; she continually exhumes positive energy, remarkable gentleness, and superb knowledge of her work. It has been an amazing experience being her patient. I've recommending Dr. Ganelis to all my family and friends and got excellent reviews from them as well. 5 STAR on all levels!!! Bella N., Los Angeles, CA
Dr Ganelis, very sweet and soft spoken but when it comes to helping and treating patients doesn't give explanations, same tests are done over and over again for no reason. I need to have additional test done, doctor gave me referral to go to different facility with the wrong address on it.. When I called back to express my concerns didn't hear a simply apology. I had to wait for 3 days along with multiple phone calls until office send my reports to primary care physician. Unfortunately will never go nor recommend this doctor to no one!!!!! Doesn't poses quality of a good, caring doctor. Rgina R., Los Angeles, CA
