I am a patient of Dr Giardino.
Bad: The wait is long, she never personally calls her patients, I needed a thorough evaluation and she never sent me for further testing for a condition that was beleievd to have to which another endocrinologist proved I have. It appears she does not want the tough cases since she is so over-booked. She has an office secretary to dissemminate medical interpretations to the patient and diagnoises so any questions regarding the data there is no one that is qualified to answer them. The answer is usually, The blood work looked fine
Good: Good listener, seems to know her stuff, nice person.
Endocrinology is easy if you have the blood work. As far as going the extra mile when endocrinology becomes hard and the blood reads normal but the symptoms of an endocrine problem are evident, she is not the physician you want. She wants the easy cases only.
