"A brilliant surgeon, and a very caring and humble man. He and his team saved my wife's life." - J.R.
"Astonishing team who practice medicine as it is intended to be practiced. Everyone on the team, including (or maybe especially) the nurses on the floor is meticulous, kind and thorough. Dr. Girardi has very special skills, but his assembly of his surgical team is nothing short of miraculous. Hat's off to all of you." - N.T.
