The visit as for a routine annual physical exam. The check-in process was very smooth and streamlined with special care to combat the COVID-19 situation. We are very pleased with the care/consultation with this provider.

Dr. Girbes is truly so caring and kind - we feel so determined she will help us find out what is going on with our X.

always a great experience

February 17, 2020 7:29 PM

dr.Girbes is so wonderful and caring. she really listened to me with concerns when my son was sick and even followed up to make sure he was doing better. She has always made me feel like an equal.

February 17, 2020 7:29 PM

I can't thank Dr. Girbes enough for honestly caring and being compassionate about my child's health when he was sick. She is always so kind and makes sure to reassure me.

February 13, 2020 11:00 PM

Dr. Mina Girbes is amazing. Always has been very helpful, kind & thorough. Thank you Mrs. Girbes.

I made an appointment online for 1:00. receptions state I didn't have to sign in. waited for over an hour. saw people who got there after us get called in first. horrible experience with reception.

January 6, 2020 11:27 AM

bad reception experience

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Girbes is an extremely knowledgeable and caring physician. We feel blessed to know her and have her caring for our children.

November 27, 2019 9:35 AM

Dr. Girbes is a great doctor, happy for her help!

November 12, 2019 11:00 PM

I love Dr. Girbes! I only trust her with my child. She gave me the idea of bringing his stuff animal to his well being check. she did a quick check up on the stuff animal which made my son smile and cooperate better than previous visits.

November 11, 2019 2:16 PM

the provider spoke only to the minor child who was nervous about being at the dr and did not want to discuss what was going on. when as the parent I attempted to discuss concerns I was cut off and unable to explain why we were at the office.

November 11, 2019 2:16 PM

i love the office and staff as they have been our pediatric office for most my kids. the merge with advocate the visits seem rushed and nothing is actually addressed.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

The visit was very pleasant. Provider is very concern about my child health.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Mina is a true pleasure to work with! This is my first baby & she has been so helpful in answering all of her questions!

August 26, 2019 7:00 PM

She's awesome, try and make all of his appts with her or X

August 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Provider provided a dx code that I wasn't in agreement with. When I brought up my concerns, she disregarded them & said, "well, I don't know what to tell you".

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Mina Girbes Is the best. She is so caring and attentive. Being a first time mom I had a lot of questions and concerns, she was able to put my mind at ease. The staff is also excellent at all three locations. Several times when my son got sick they were able to accommodate him into their busy schedule to tend to him.

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Our visit was for a physical, the doctor Mina always ask direct to my daughter how is school, favorite (sport, subject, etc., etc. also always ask for sports activities.

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall very good provider and very happy.

February 13, 2019 6:00 PM

i absolutely love her. I feel so comfortable around her with asking questions and not feeling judged/ "dumb". she explains things in a way for me to understand them without all medical terms. she has a great bond with my son. she holds and talks to him. she listens and is never in a hurry.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Farhadieh is an amazing doctor.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

we absolutely love our child's doctor. she is wonderful.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

she is very good

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr.Mina it's always very polite, friendly and explains everything very good !

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Farhadieh is wonderful. She doesn't only talk and explain things to me as the parent, but also makes sure my child understands as well. It's very appreciated. Also, I'm not sure who the nurse was that we had that day, and I wish I could remember because she was wonderful as well.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Wait times are long. Doctors do not notify you of making a follow up with the receptionists. Receptionists do not know anything of the nurses or doctors said regarding follow ups or anything. this goes for nurses as well. overall the communication between the staff seems very poor.
