Wellesley Hills, MA |
I had the misfortune of having to this "doctor" as my neurologist during an inpatient stay for seizures. The first attending MD I saw as well as the EEG technician said my symptoms and seizures appear as textbook epileptic seizures. The first time she came in she informed me that the video portion of the EEG is useless. She then came back and told me my seizures were not epileptic and lamictal helped because I had a "mood disorder". Then asked my DAD if I was suicidal to "keep me safe". TERRIBLE

She is a highly professional Neurologist who always patiently sets aside the required time for me (I have MS) and has helped me handle my situation. I have moved to another state but I still wish to meet her again.

Horrible!! I've had ME/CFS for 15+ years, also diagnosed with Fibro. Got referred to Dr. Girgis to help rule out TBI and Lyme. I was assured by her staff that she is familiar with ME/CFS, Fibro, TBI, and Lyme. She is not. Dr. Girgis didn't even go over all my symptoms or look at my medical history. She stated ME/CFS is not a disease, Fibro is not a real diagnosis, that patients with any thing close to it are either retarded or dead and that I am much too pretty to be that sick. Shame on her.
