Newport Psychiatry & Addiction Treatment Center is located in the heart of beautiful Newport Beach, CA. It is led by Dr. Raafat Girgis. He has been practicing psychiatry for over 30 years and specializes in the prevention and diagnosis of emotional disorders, anxiety, depression, and neurological issues. Although he is considered to be a veteran in his field, he still keeps up with the most recent forms of treatment for his patients. He uses the Neurostar TMS machine to treat his patients suffering from treatment resistant depression.
The reviews for Dr. Girgis are not very good across all different review sites such as: vitals.com, ucomparehealth.com, ratemds.com, and healthgrades.com. His average score between the sites was a 2.38 out of 5 stars. One thing that was odd was that he did not have a website and had no yelp presence. You may want to go elsewhere in Newport Beach.
A recent reviewer stated, “Dr. Girgis and his team have a grossly inadequate level of patient care- completely unresponsive and incapable of returning phone calls to the patients, their care givers, and their referring physicians. He is clearly in it for the money and throughout the month of TMS care, we only have seen the doctor one time. Major rip off scam – DO NOT GO TO HIM.”
