Fantastic. I went in expecting to wait a bit as you would at any doctors office. I had a bout a half hour wait. I was having trouble hearing after a horrible ear infection. They took great care of me and I am slowly regaining my hearing. I would recommend them.
Dr Girgis was great. He was very thorough and i felt much better when i left than when I came in
Dr. Girgis is very thorough with what he is doing. Great doctor and highly recommended.
I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Girgis...staff is wonderful & when I questioned the wait time(making sure they didn't forget about me) they were very nice. I think everyone(me included) needs to understand that these specialists have situations that come up & I really do think his office tries their very best to fit everyone in. He is very thorough & you will not feel rushed.
very good nice guy very helpful.
Very helpful, informative, and a nice manner.
Dr. Girgis was very thorough in his examination and explanation which is very rare now days. Highly recommended.
Overall was a good experience. Wait time was a lot longer than I would have liked. The waiting room was a bit dismal and could have been updated. The staff was excellent and professional. Dr. Girgis was just what I would have expected for at ENT professional. He did pick up that I had a technical background and communicated wth me accordingly. The only significant issue was that he was looking to solve problems that I felt did not need attention at this time and he should have asked if I wanted to pursue the remedies for those non-critical issues.
Dr. Girgis performed sinus surgery on me and corrected my problems however each time I've had an appointment with him, with exception of my initial consultation, I have waiting no less than 90 mins. Also most of their staff is friendly including Melissa however there is 1 particular nurse that has terrible bedside manner - she's a more mature woman with blonde hair. If you're having issues go see them just be prepared to wait all day, multiple times until your issue is resolved.
Busy office..... too much wait time and receptionist that say"Hello" to get your attention.. that's very unprofessional they keep shuttling in and out of the office door to wait for your next procedure
Dr Girgis did not see me but his physician's assistant did. Melissa did a great job and I would recommend her to everyone due to her excellent execution of removing ear wax from my ears.Quick and efficient without any pain.
I believe he was able to correctly diagnose the problem, which my previous doctor had not been able to. It was; however, very frustrating that I did not see the doctor until an hour and a half until after I was scheduled.
Very thorough and entire staff and Dr. were so professional and caring. Definitely would recommend. Very pleased and walked out feeling like I had a good plan for a problem that I have been dealing with for quite some time.
He is terrible with handling kids. He was impatient and his tone and behavior was threatening to my daughter. She was very upset and scared. The wait time out in the waiting room was excessive and also had to wait for more than 40 min once we were inside.
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. I freaked out after my surgery because I thought I was bleeding too much and went to the emergency room at 11:30 at night.....Dr. Girgis came to the emergency room to check up on me that night (mind you this was AFTER doing multiple surgeries since the early AM that very day). Even though I was experiencing normal bleeding and nothing was wrong with me he asked no questions and treated me amazingly, patched me up a bit more and sent me on my way. Imagine working 12+ hours then being called at 11:30PM for one of your patients coming in with a nosebleed and asking no questions about it, 5 star Doctor all the way, I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone searching for a Doctor. All the rest of the staff is equally as amazing, any question I asked whether it be stupid or not, they answered along with a few jokes at my expense, hands down one of the best doctors and staff I have ever been to, they make you feel right at home.
Loved the doctor and hopefully his information will help but the wait was extremely long. His office staff were also very friendly.
Omg best experience best doctor I have ever seen most thorough all staff was excellent would refer everyone I know. Cant wait to go back in six weeks
Very thorough exam and very pleasant
It was a positive, and pleasant visit for me.
Very friendly and easy to talk to.
Doctor Girgis is awesome. Years ago I went in for nodes on my vocal cords. While there, we also began to discuss my sinus issues. He got my in for both sinus surgery and a rhinoplasty and I was beyond happy with the results. Even after my dog broke it again (twice!) Doctor Girgis was able to laugh along with me and fixed it wonderfully both times again.
Large, upscale practice with a professional staff, everyone poised and polite, and the doctor himself was engaged and sincere. Hard to imagine an ENT practice any better than this.
I really enjoyed my visit. Dr. Girgis was a pleasure to talk to and I appreciated his open and clear explanations.
Everything was great with the exception of the wait time before I was seen by anyone.
The visit was thorough but it was really long! 3-4 hours long! I was happy that they completed a battery of tests but I really needed a heads up on how long we were going to be there. I had to cancel another appointment. Also I competed the insurance forms online ahead of time, but didn't realize they needed to be printed out at home. The office could not access the online forms I had filled out. Very frustrating and a time waste however Dr. Girgis was great!
Was able to diagnose right away an issue I was having with my throat that was causing me great distress.
Very pleasant, listened to what my symptoms were. Had hearing testing done and wants to do CT scan of head and MRI. Will have a follow up in 4 weeks. Gave prescription for nasal spray. Staff was very friendly.
At first I was upset because I faxed over my new patient packet before going and called over the phone to make sure it was received but when I arrived 10 minutes early they could not find my paper work good thing I had it in the car so I ran to the car to get it, but after that everything was smooth the staff all around are excellent detailed nice and caring I highly recommend Dr Samuel Girgis!
The whole experience was very pleasant , his staff very pleasant and professional .5 Stars.
I was well cared for as usual!
Dr. Girgis was very professional, thorough and friendly. I appreciated that he took the time to explain the cause for my symptoms, treatment, etc. His thoroughness was likely the reason that the wait time was so long.
I like him a lot. He takes the time to answer any questions I ask.
Very intelligent and to the point. He is very thorough in in exams and diagnosis.
I had to wait today only because there was an emergency with another patient in the office. I had a wonderful experience! Dr. Girgis is professional, thorough, kind, and caring.
Very nice manner~Lots of waiting...but it was worth it!
Doctor seemed knowledgeable and professional. The wait for the appt was ridiculous - apx. 1 hour and 20 minutes until I saw the doctor.
I've seen doctor Girgis a few times over the last 12 years or so and have always been happy. Sometimes you get stuck in the waiting room for a little while, but it's not unusual compared to other doctors I've seen.
Totally attentive, thorough and professional.
Very good & professional, very caring.
ALTHOUGH IT TOOK ALONG TIME, I LIKED HOW HE EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO ME AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS.
Very happy with my visit & with the doctor!
Fantastic doctor. Great listener. Lets you describe your problems in your own words, helping you with insightful questions. Clearly explains options. Not rushed.
Great down to earth and personable. Answered all my questions directly
l was quite satisfied.
Very thorough and very thoughtful. Was told I need a ct scan and a hearing exam to fully diagnose my sinus problems. Instead of having to schedule multiple appointments to have it done, was done on the spot. Very happy with the experience and the effort taken to come to a conclusion during my appointment.
Dr Girgis is wonderful! I would highly recommend him!
He was excellent. He asked questioned, listened, and was thorough on his examination. His bedside manner was phenomenal. He evenwas took the timeworld to refer me to an internist. I have already referred him to several people.
Dr. Girgis and his entire staff made me feel comfortable through the whole visit. It doesn't get better than that.
Very thorough exam and highly professional. Also helpful in explaining prognosis and providing information regarding health problem. Highly recommend!!
Dr. Girgis and his team are competent and friendly professionals. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Dr. Girgis was amazing and very knowledgeable. However, from the time my appointment time was scheduled to the time I left the office was 2 hours and 15 minutes. This was way to long!! Especially for a 2 year old.
He sat down after all the tests and explained options and what would be done.
Years ago Dr Girgis worked with our son on his numerous ear infection issues - Dr. Girgis was wonderful. That's why I wanted to take my 90 year old mom to see him. Sadly,things are no longer wonderful. We waited close to 1 1/2. Dr. Girgis manner was rushed and he spent most of the time talking to the assistants in the room not to my mom or to me. We went there because she has had problems with her ears not her hearing. Of course we had to do a hearing test and it was recommended for her to get hearing aids- she hears just fine for someone that old. He only addressed one of her issues and I'm still perplexed with his diagnosis - it was a very unsatisfactory experience. I will not do a follow up with him - I will find someone who will spend more than 10 minutes with us. feel bad about this review but it's all true.
Gereat bedside manner with our 5 year old Daughter. Highly Recommend.
His professionalty and thoroghness.
Despite an hour wait, once my name was called the visit was extremely efficient. The various tests and visit with Dr. Girgis went quickly. Most importantly, I am feeling much better!
Very thorough and efficient!
Excellent. Knew right away what was going on and got me on track.
I thought the visit went well. He recommended additional tests that they preform on site. The office is highly organized which allows him to see more than one patient at a time.
Sam does a great job. I would not go to anyone else. Dr.John Hackett
Dr. Girgis was very thorough in answering our questions and took time to help educate us as to understanding the underlying issues related to my son's health. The wait time was extensive but worth it!
Had exam, then hearing test with onsite audiologist, then met with Dr. again to get results immediately. Liked the fact all that was accomplished in one visit.
I like his bedside manner and trust that he is taking the right course of treatment. Everything about his office so far seems professional and friendly.
very kind caring dr.
He asked all the right questions. Friendly and professional!
