i am 44 yrs old and had my first back operation when i was only 17 yrs old, iv seen many drs through out the years but Dr Guirguis is by far one of my favorite doctors, he takes the time to actually talk to you and one of very few doctors that have actually checked over my injuries and not just prescribed meds. i have recomended and will continue to recommend him to others , and the staff there are great. kelly

Dr. Guirguis is a wonderful person with a great bedside manner. He does his best to leave no stone unturned in helping you to feel better. The only problem is that he is in such demand, it is getting very hard to get an appointment with him in a reasonable period of time. I do wish he would take on a third doctor to take on the new patients, and allow him to just care for the many, many patients he already has. But this is a problem of him being so good.

I was very satisfied after seeing Dr. Guirguis for my first appointment on 5/8/2017. He was so personable with me. He explained and accessed my MRI & CT scans right away, making it easier for me to understand my why I am experiencing my Cronic pain. I have had other Doctors tell me that the pain is only in my head. In other words there was no need for me to take prescription medications to help alleviate the pain and make it more bearable to function daily. Thx. Dr. Guirguis .

Very kind, compassionate and forthcoming with information. The first doctor in my workers compensation nightmare who has treated me like a patient and not an inconvenience. He gave me more information on my injury than the orthopedic surgeon I was sent to. He has my total respect and trust.

It takes 3 weeks to get an appointment if you call into the office. With that said, if you have a 30 day supply of pain medication and for some reason beyond your control cannot make your initial appointment and call iTampa Pain Relief To reschedule you will wait 3 weeks to be seen. They will tell you to call in everyday to see if they have availability but you won't get in sooner. Wait 2 months to be seen and Dr cut painmeds from 60mg to 10mg. The office staff is nasty. Pain is unbearable.
