What People Say About Dr. Nigel Girgrah, MD
Reply
He followed my son for Wilson's disease and left him copper deficient for an extended period of time despite my concerns. Danny now has a colostomy and a tricuspid valve leak. He fought for his life for a month and a half in the hospital. For the follow up appointment I asked him if he had spoken with the Wilson's disease specialist. His excuse was that he had called him but the specialist had not returned his call. He is head of the gastroenterology department and lacks compassion.
