Specialties

Dr. Jorge Giroud has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Not going back to this Dr

While I think Dr. Giroud is very knowledgeable, he treats parents like second class idiots. I've seen him twice now and was hoping that first time was just a bad day but the second visit was even worse. The first visit he didn't even know why we were there and the 2nd time he was talking about a different issue than what we were there for the first time. I have no doubt my baby is fine and trust his opinion, BUT when I commented about not being the reason we were there he belittled my comments and told me I had a bad memory (literally!). He only repeated one of two tests even though at the first visit they said baby didn't let them get a good look at her heart at the first visit. Overall just not happy that he treats parents like we are stupid and his God complex is ridiculous.

Dr. Giroud was my daughters cardiologist since she was 3 years old. She is now 21 and his opinion is still the ONLY one I trust.
