About Roland El Ghazal, MD

I am incredibly fortunate to be a physician who is able to help patients and make a difference in their lives. I treat every patient as family and engage them in shared decision making. I am a big fan of creating an individualized care plan for each patient that matches with their priorities, needs and belief system. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with wife and 3 kids, playing the piano, reading and biking.

Dr. El Ghazal is amazing. He has continued to research and learn about my condition. He is extremely wise, but what I appreciate most is his empathy and compassion. He always makes time to acknowledge the mental load that living with a chronic illness brings and ensures I am doing ok physically and mentally. Not many doctors take that time. So grateful he is my doctor
