Patient Comments (4)
in Newark, DE |
By far the worst practice I have ever been to. It literally took me 3 days of calling back to back to get an appointment scheduled. Nobody ever returned my calls not once. Finally scheduled and appointment. The office staff is very rude. At check in you could tell the office was so unorganized. There were charts and junk everywhere. Dr Girard is very short fused. NEVER EVER WILL I RETURN AGAIN.

The women staff in the office are absolutely fantastic, but doctor Girard is incredibly rude and belittling. He spoke to my fiance who was with me for support by interrogating him and making him feel unwanted and continued to give me my results in a very belitting tone. He's rude and gives younger patients a very unprofessional vibe. I will be seeking a different GI.

Great people! Procedure was seamless and efficient.
in NEW CASTLE DELAWARE |
Have been going to Dr Girard for many years for routine colonoscopy. It wasn't until I had a problem with hemorrhoids that I realized he was not a very good doctor. I was in his office four times for banding. The procedure was very painful and had no result. I went to a surgeon and had better results with just one banding which was done in 90 seconds with no pain or bleeding. Dr Girard was not sympathetic at all and his banding process was so very painful and did not take care of anything.
