in Clearwater, FL |
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 .
Maureen, It is our policy to provide the best care to patients. Thank you.

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 is our policy to provide the best care to patients. Thank you.

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.
