Patient Comments (24)
in Cooper City |
Excellent experience. So accustomed to going to my former PCP and getting shuttled around for all types of follow-on appointments - some of which took months to obtain. At Dr. Girgis's office, it seems like a one-stop-shop for common things like complete blood work, ultrasound, prescriptions, etc. His office is very efficient and respects your time, plush have found his staff to be very friendly. Really enjoy his PA's too, they really take the time with you. I feel like I am in great hands.
in Hallandale, FL |
I am so thankful to have found Dr. Girgis. He's so knowledgeable in so many different things. No matter what I ask about, he solves it for me without going to specialists. He has helped me tremendously with my health issues I had, and no other doctor could. They actually listen to their patients in that office and care! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I have been so blessed to discover Dr. Girgis ! He is an excellent Dr who listens and treats his patients as if they were his family. He and his staff have helped my husband and I through some puzzling health challenges and I recommend him highly!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr Girgis and his staff "get it done". Like many people, my schedule is very busy, so scheduling multiple visits to handle seemingly simple issues is something I don't have a lot of time for. For example, I needed a minor surgery on my elbow recently. Instead of being sent off for multiple consultations and outpatient surgery, Dr Girgis gave me option of doing it right in his office. The procedure was maybe 15 minutes, few needle pokes, a few stitches and we were done!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr.Girgis has been the most helpful in getting me back on track with several health issues. I was struggling with weight gain,thyroid level issues and hormonal imbalances. In just a short 4 months Dr.Girgis has helped me get back on track. I have referred 7 friends/family to Dr.Girgis and all of them are quite happy as well! Thank youy Dr.Girgis for your professionalism and expertise in getting me back to great health. Kim Diaz

in Olmsted Falls, OH |
Dr. Girgis is very thorough and explains everything. He is also very busy because he is so good. His physician assistants will take all of your information to him before he visits you. He reviews your medical data and then comes in to see you. He always greets you with a hand shake. He talks fast, but he will repeat anything you ask. At first I felt like he didn't spend enough time with me, but I've come to realize he is on top of my health and cares deeply for his patients. I trust him.

Overbearing. Didn't explain anything. Told my husband to tell me what he wanted me to do!
