The office staff is incredibly rude and not helpful at all. The wait times are usually 30 mins or more and after your initial visit, Dr. Giardino hands you off to a PA or nurse. All they really do at my visit is check weight and look at my bloodwork and refill my Rx. They make their patients feel like they're a bother. They don't offer any help or advice on handling my condition but they are quick to scold me about my weight gain (due to the thyroid condition that I see THEM for!!) Terrible.
I have been see in the office over the last couple of years. I have only seen Dr Giardino at my very first appointment. After that, I have seen multiple NP's, seem to be a different one every time. No consistency. The office staff is rude and make you feel like they can't be bothered with any task. They give attitude and are condescending. I thought if I could get past dealing with the office staff, it would be okay. But every appointment there is an issue. I would NOT recommend this office.

From the receptionist (Pam) to the NP (Peggy) to the doctor herself, I couldn't be happier. Everyone was very pleasant and professional. Peggy and Dr Giardino both explained everything to me completely, and they didn't make me feel rushed. I highly recommend this practice to anyone needing an endocrinologist.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
