He moves pretty fast once he comes into room but seems to know what he is doing. His assessment was thorough though. Very nice but felt a bit rushed.

This was my first time seen Dr Guirl. He was very attentive, he listened carefully and he asked me questions and he explained to me what he thinks it could me my problem. He took his time and he wasn’t ina rush like other doctors. He is nice and kind. He order an endoscopy to find out exactly what I have. And he gave me some pain medication. I would give him a 6th star but they only have 5.

Dr. Guirl was recommended to me by another doctor, and I'm so glad that he did. Dr. Guirl, while very professional, was also very, very pleasant to talk to and appeared to be totally engaged with me and my issues allduring the appointment. I highly recommend him myself. His medical advice has been very helpful, also, and has helped my condition.

Dr. Guirl is wonderful! I have a complicated medical history, but Dr. Guirl takes the time to go over your history before he meets with you so that you really feel like your needs matter. He asks a lot of questionsso that there is a thorough understanding of the problem, which I really appreciated. He was even kind enough to draw out explanations of what was going on with me, which helped my boyfriend and I understand, and be less afraid. After my visit with Dr. Guirl I was able to go home and rest easy knowing that he will be the one doing my procedures and that he will do his very best to help me. I cannot express how grateful I am that my Primary Care Physician recommended him to me.
