Dr. Girgis is amazing, I had a septoplasty done by him since I had roughly an 80% blockage in my nose from a deviated septum and inflamed sinuses. The surgery went perfect and he was more than informative of what would happen. The staff is just as amazing, absolutely no complaints, I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT

Dr. Girtis squeezed me in at the last minute but that didn't stop he and his staff from providing me with excellent service and professionalism. Dr. Girtis spent the necessary time to thoroughly review and explain my scans with me, provide me with detailed analysis and didn't talk over my head!

I went to Dr Girgis because of my frequent headaches and not being able to breathe. I would wake up with panic attacks about every 2-3 hours. My days consisted of me being severely fatigued because I wasn't resting due to breathing issues. Adding to my problems, I would have the headaches and was constantly light-headed which would lead me to having episodes of vertigo. I was put on nasal sprays several times, nothing worked. After receiving CT Scans, I found out about my swollen turbinate's an
