    Dr. Guirgues is more interested in improving my lifestyle and easing my pain than offering a quick fix. I will definitely return for my follow up visit and I will recommend him to my friends.

    I have never been to his office when I waited less than an hour. This most recent time I waited over 2 hours before I actually saw the doctor and then he spent less than 15 minutes with me. He never reviewed the MRIs with me; just said he couldn't help me. I would never recommend him to anyone.

    God forbid you visit him when he has more important places to be or things to do. By 16 year old was very upset by his lack of interest and his attitude of hurry up you are wasting my time. In addition included that she was a smoker! Really that isn't true and he presented us with someone else xrays to make his diagnoses. Her regular physician called us to let us know the incorrect information he had filed with the regular doctor and the insurance company!
