She is a very good doctor for most women

I began seeing her when I had a miscarriage. She was amazingly sympathetic and gentle. I went back to her when I was pregnant again and she was very supportive of natural birth and hiring a doula. She even stated I needed to take an out of hospital class if natural birth was my goal. However, complications arose, I ended up with a c-section (no doubt in my mind it was medically necessary). She processed that with me at my 6 week check up and brought up VBAC to me. She would mention VBAC at my yearly visits for the next few years, so I began researching.

However, when I became pregnant again, the first prenatal appointment was not what I expected. I (and later found out my husband independently felt the same way) felt that she was no longer supportive and it would be a fight for a VBAC that she had been telling me about for years. So I switched care providers. Following the transfer, I found out that her practice banned VBACs despite research saying it is safe.

That being said, I still recommend her to friends that I know would feel safer with a more medicalized approach to pregnancy. Just because she was no longer the best doctor for my situation does not take away how amazing she was through all of my issues prior.

I was a very sick woman who was terrified of Doctors because of I had a few bad experiences with doctors that just didn't care. When I went to the emergency room I was in bad shape and I got another bad doctor. When I was released they told me to make an appointment with this quacky doctor, I refused I called my insurance company who recommended Dr.Gigi Girard she treated me so well. She knew I was scared and took the time to assure me that everything would be ok. I had a very large fibroid tumors she performed a hysterectomy. If it wasn't for Dr Girard I know I would not be here today. She is the most caring Dr. I have ever had.

Dr. Girard saved my life.

I have been seeing her for at least 10 years. She had me come in for something I thought would be minor and wound up being cancer. She called me personally with the test results and next steps and I felt like I had a partner through out the experience. I have given her name and number to any friend who has asked for a recommendation and will continue to do so.
