Dr. Girgis is the best doctor I have had in a long time, especially in a big city. He is a kindhearted, thoughtful, knowledgeable, man who is concerned about his patience. He tries to get to the root of the problem.From his staff to his office and manners everything is great! This is my first time writing a review but for him it’s worth it. God Bless Dr. Girgis!

Dr Girgis was excellent. I was a new patient and he took the time to not only go over my history but also to listen to my concerns. He didn’t rush me at all and he made an effort to befriendly and put my anxieties at ease.The wait time was so fast that I wasn’t even finished filling out my initial paperwork before they were able to see me. The ladies who staff the office are very personable and made an extra effort to make me feel comfortable since I was a little nervous. In a time when it seems like most doctors are just trying to see as many patients as possible and shuffle you out the door, Dr Girgis is so refreshing! I truly felt like he cared about my health and building a long term Dr/ Patient relationship. I will absolutely be taking my whole family here and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a genuine, knowledgeable, and professional physician.

I have not seen a Dr. in over 6years, in between now and the 6yrs I’ve made appointments with different doctors just to be discouraged on their manners or professionalism. Dr. Girgis has renewed my hope in doctors again, I’m anew patient though I was treated like I’ve been seeming him for years. From the moment you walk in your quickly greated by his staff, having the option as a new patient to fill out the paperwork online before I arrived for my appt saved a lot of time. Dr Girgis is truly a doctor that cares, he takes time to introduce himself and gives you the same opportunity, he takes time to truly listen to you and assures you he will take care of you. I’m a man in my mid 50’s but I can truly tell every man out there that’s has any doubts about Dr.s you must see Dr. Girgis and his staff and you too will be impressed. Thanks Dr. for taking time to see me as a new patient. I can say I found a doctor for life. Ronnie C

This appointment was for my 8year old physical. This is the first time that he had a physical with a doctor different than a pediatrician, and we like it. Dr. Girgis was playful and attentive with my son, and his babybrother who came along. Great experience. But the best was the "kids room"! It was a success with my kids! The room is decorated for little patients, the cabinets, examining bed and the baby crib are all decorated in firefighter themes, my boys loved it! There's also a TV, and the nurse turn it on and put a movie for the kids while we wait, it was great! I hadn't had to restrain my kids in the waiting room and ensure that they didn't break anything...they just sat there and enjoyed the movie and the room, I even had time to read the news without interruption! Now I am wondering if they have another "kids room" with girls motifs, I would ask next time! Thanks, Dr. Girgis!

Let me start off by saying I am extremely picky when it comes to docors and havent had a reg. Pcp for a while since I couldnt find one I was happy with until now. Dr. Girgis was an amazing docotorhis beside manner is excellent. He makes you feel important and not like your just another pay check he is collecting, like plenty of other doctors. The wait was a little long but thats only because he takes his time with each of his patients and doesnt rush you out so it really wasnt a big issue for me. Another thing I was pleased about was that his office wasn't crammed with patients waiting to be seen.
