in Canandaigua, NY |
I had a problem with my back. For several months no one could find the problem. I saw Dr. Girgis in Canandaigua, had an MRI and in a very short time he performed surgery after finding the problem and the pain was gone immediately. Can't say enough good about him.

Dr. Girgis saved my life and I am only able to walk because I was lucky to have had him on call the night of a motor vehicle accident when my neck was broke. He is the most caring Dr. that anyone could put their trust into operating on them. He is far the best neurosurgeon in the Rochester area!

I had an appointment for 11:00 am which I arrived about 20 minutes early. At 11:35, I asked his secretary what the holdup was. She stated that the doctor was running behind and that she would get me in a room as soon as one was available. At 12:00 pm, I left without getting into a back room or ever seeing this doctor. I have never experienced such a lack of consideration or professionalism in all of my 45 years. There is no excuse to wait for a doctor for 60 minutes: ever!
