I went to see Dr. Giraud for a follow-up visit to another ENT who's bedside manner about the medication she recommendedI didn't feel comfortable going along with (the side effects since the bacteria that was tested was supposed to be resistant to another antibiotic which I have taken previously and not had any issues with and she had an attitude about my requesting she prescribe both medications so I wouldn't have to bother her again and I could make my own decision.) Going to see Dr. Giraud, she merely looked at my sinuses and hurt me quite badly. I have a VERY high pain tolerance and have been through MANY sinus scopes throughout my life and have NEVER been hurt so badly. She then said that based on the report of the bacteria and not seeing anything on the scope that I should probably just take the medication that I was feeling wary about taking because of the serious potential side effects. I wanted to believe her and started taking this medication, meanwhile discontinuing my active lifestyle because of the potential increased threat of side effects. She also played down the risky side effects of this medication, rather than attempting to do anything else and said that the nasal rinse was probably not covered by my insurance and was very expensive. I got a third opinion one week later and was recommended to have a CT scan since nothing had changed with the medication. Low and behold, this simple rinse (which WAS covered by my insurance) AND the scan both of which she could have recommended even trying and seeing how much it would cost ended up demonstrating that I no longer had a sinus infection. Her "ENT staff" are nice, but they don't seem to be too helpful as both times I called with detailed questions after my appointment I could hear her feeding them answers. Thanks for the waste of time and money on a risky medication and haphazard and painful appointment. On the other hand, her staff were very kind, wait time is quick (I can see why), and her appointments are pretty brief.

Unfortunately, Dr.Giraud was unable to treat my medical condition. She gave me a suggestion on the type of specialist I shouldsee.

Horrible bedside manner. Was rushing like she hardly care.

I can understand why some reviewers said she was hurried. She came in, got right down to business, took a look and made a diagnosis. In my opinion, that's fast and efficient. If you're looking for someone to hold your handand spend some significant time with you, she's not your doc. If you want someone whose going to come in, politely and diligently make your office visit and quick and painless as possible she's the way to go. 5 stars all across the board for me.

She definitely rushed. I told her my symptoms and before even checking me out she told me her diagnosis. If I wanted a more thorough examination, I probably wouldn’t go to her again

It would be best if the doctor office utilized the pre-forms in ZocDoc. I had to refill out the same information manually. The office was very clear and service was quick. I had earwax removal.
