My Story

Why should you read this?  Hopefully my story will convince you

I was a practicing surgeon last at Dartmouth in the ENT section. Much as other members of the department, my daily routine was taking care of patients, research and I was also involved in hospital-wide building patient safety and quality.

My life and what I knew came to a crashing halt in 2014-I was diagnosed with a condition called cerebellar ataxia. I had to give up my practice and surgery and direct in-person patient care. But I still wanted to help patients and people. I started a small business to try and achieve this (Giri MD, LLC). I am hoping to bring both perspectives to future discussions-the patient and the physician-

My hope with this blog is to educate and inform you the reader (two elements of patient care that I missed the most). I am going to try and update with new information weekly.

Do you want to understand your health condition?

    I met Dr Giri several yrs ago, as he had relocated to my area of Ctl Fl; Specifically, to Lk Nona Medical City, just south of downtown Orlando, east of Disney. Coincidentally, my niece, Laura DeSchamp, from Brownsville, VT, is an OR nurse, at Dartmouth Medical Ctr and knows Dr Giri, well. I didn’t know their connection until Dr Giri and I met.
    I recommend following and consulting w/Dr Giri for any personal and medical questions. I know he’s given awesome advise to others, recently.

    I regard Dr Giri as a friend and trust him dearly w/personal and medical advise. Just a click away, should you have a question, medically.
