Diagnosed and treated my neuropathy well and quickly. Didn't explain a nerve stimulation exam before he gave it to me so I found the exam painful and frightening. Didn't diagnose my dementia. Gave me the most painful lumbar puncture I have ever endured.
Sylmar, CA |
I've been to several neurologists. Dr. Girard is very good. My case is complicated. At the beginning of my health issues, he had the proper tests run and successfully figured it out. Even though I needed a few surgeries, I was grateful to get relief.
Chino, CA |
He has been very thorough for us. We started with him when our daughter was 10 years and is 17 now. We always come with questions and he always works through them with us. Having a female child with seizures can be challenging. He truly helps work it through. He talks to her and that's what she likes. Clarita his front office person is always super help and helps us whenever is needed.
