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 andI am slowly regaining my hearing. I would recommend them.

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 situationsthat 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.

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 wouldhave 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 friendlyincluding 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.

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.

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 wouldhappen. 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.

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 happywith 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.

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 tocancel 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!

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 withthe experience and the effort taken to come to a conclusion during my appointment.
