I was saddened to learn of Dr. Ghosh's passing. He was my doctor for many years, until he left Terre Haute. His caring bedside manner is still remembered today. He delivered my daughter in 1983 & genuinely was concerned about my difficult circumstances at the time, speaking kind words of encouragement for my future. I wish I could tell him all did turn out fine. May Dr. Ghosh rest in peace & may the family draw comfort from the many condolences offered here. May God be near to you all.

What a wonderful OB/GYN. He delivered all 3 of my children. He also did my hysterectomy. I absolutely loved him and missed him when he left Terre Haute. Prayers to Shelly and family.

Dr. Ghosh was my OB/GYN for many years, delivering both of my children, until he retired from practice. I loved him as a Dr. & will never forget all that he did for me & my family. He identified a skin change on me after the delivery of our first child & asked to remove a birthmark that didn’t look β€œright” to him. It turned out to be malignant melanoma, and I was so appreciative that he took the time & had the love for his patients to care enough to take care of the whole person. He was very special to many of us, but I am eternally grateful to have known him. Rest In Peace Dr. Ghosh. Love to you, Shelly, and the rest of the family.

So sad to hear about Dr. Ghosh. He was truly a special person that went above and beyond for his patients and their families. I have so many fond memories of his gentle demeanor and Shelly keeping the office running smoothly. He always spoke of Kris and Sue and was so proud of them. I was so sorry to learn of Kris’s passing. My oldest son was born in December and I remember him coming to my room late at night in a long fur coat. I razzed him about it for years. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
