After four months spent visiting 26 different physicians, multiple labs, CAT scans and MRIs, I found Dr. Girnita who immediately recognized my autoimmune condition and started me on a treatment plan that respected my wishes. I am sorry I didn’t find her sooner.
Dr. Girnita is amazing! I had severe health problems, after seeing several practitioners who didn’t listen to me or understand my concerns. She was very patient, provided detailed explanations, ran thorough labs and her treatments were helpful. I felt heard & cared for.
In-person visits at our Irvine, CA office & telehealth visits for all residents of:
Once you make your appointment, you’ll send prior labs, imaging and medical records. By the time we talk, I’ll be familiar with your clinical history.
So our conversation starts with you: Your health journey, your concerns, your priorities and goals.
Next, I’ll do a physical exam and pain assessment either in person or by secure HIPAA-compliant video.
Then, I’ll explain why your previous lab and imaging tests were done and what they mean. I’ll call your radiologist myself if you and I have questions.
I’ll explain your diagnosis and treatment options, any additional tests I recommend, and answer all your questions, no matter how long it takes.
Together, we’ll decide on your treatment plan and next steps.
