SHC Patient, Sep 2014

It was a quick in and out session, plus he informed me he was not going to keep following up on me, for the first and only time seeing him. It was disappointing.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Appreciated.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Dr. Giori was very knowledgeable of my condition & very informative - good doctor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Good.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Dr. Glori seemed to have discussed my diagnosis before talking to me or examining me. He did not realize my level of pain. He did not listen to anything I said.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

One of the best doctors I have ever seen.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Attending doctor was very responsible, courteous, and friendly.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Would love to have a follow-up report of results and recommendations of visit.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

I already refer my son's friend. He had bad - bad knee problems.
