I have been a patient of Dr. Girgis for approximately 30 years. He has monitored my thyroid medication and has kept me in the proper level of this time. The last couple of years, Dr. Girgis has monitored thyroid cysts and is keeping a close watch to make sure they continue to shrink.

Switched to him from a different Endocrinologist. He didn't make me feel like a number and explained things very well. His entire staff was excellent.

I've seen Dr Girgis for 9 years now. By far the best endo I've seen since being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
