SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I know I am in the best hands for my jaw surgery.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. Girod is the best! She took care of all our needs & concerns to help us out & did a fantastic job! We will always recommend her to others!

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr. Girod was very good. She went over the MRI with me and pointed out the problems, and shared other concerns, made recommendations.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr Girod is truly an exceptional doctor who, through her impetus to go above and beyond (on the Friday before New Year's Eve, no less), most likely literally saved my life. And I suspect she quietly monitored my hospitalization and discharge. she called me an hour after I got home...on New Year's Day...to check on me and to be able sure I was treated well. I have spent a lot of time with many types of doctors, both as a patient and professionally, and I have to say how rare it is to find one so technically proficient and so personable and caring as she. Not only does she deserve an A+ rating, but a HUGE, HUGE raise as well. ;D

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Everyone was great.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr. Girod is an amazing surgeon with excellent bedside manner. She showed genuine concern for me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Dr. Girod is exceptional - This is based on two surgeries with Dr. Girod.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Unbelievable. Dr. Girod is the personalization of professionalism. I have so much confidence in her. She was very straightforward with me and I felt at ease.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I liked both PA & Dr. Girod. Only recommendation is to introduce other students/visitors following the doctor.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Dr. Gnod was extremely thorough & patient with all questions & information shared.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Good.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Excellent/good.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Girod has provided extensive care to me for many years and I say without reservation that her care is the best I have ever received. She is a STAR.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Girod is outstanding.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Extremely helpful!

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr.Girod was very rushed and distracted during my appointment and I had to keep referring to my written questions to keep on task. However, she called me the next week after hear assistant followed up and it was a completely different experience MUCH BETTER.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Could not to be better.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Could not to be better.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Girod did not warn me or prepare me for significant and painful after-effects of surgery. I am not talking about pain from the incision or tooth extraction. I am referring to the extreme soreness/tenderness that resulted from ratcheting my mouth green etc.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Awesome -

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Good experience, friendly staff.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I have the utmost respect and confidence in Dr. Girod.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Thank you good.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Provider & MA were fine, entire process of making an appt. & your layers of bureaucracy were awful. This should be a seamless process. I had to make multiple calls & was kept on HOLD for very long periods. There are serious systematic problems. Staff not well trained on customer service oriented.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. Girod took the time to answer all of my questions & she was very thorough.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

I am happy any time about my care during my visit in hospital.
