The Brookside Family Health Center is a comprehensive family medical practice
caring for patients of all ages. Having opened in 2008, this state-of-the-art facility
is staffed by a small team determined to avoid the rushed schedule that plagues most
The goal is to provide our patients with the kind of care that we ourselves
would like to receive. This is quite unique in today’s healthcare environment. Our
unhurried, personalized approach encourages a remarkable cooperative relationship
to develop between the physician and the patient. This special relationship has
been the cornerstone of the practice of medicine for centuries, but unfortunately
is being lost in many group practice settings in recent years.
We keep our schedule light because being “too busy” is a mistake that we
refuse to make. We schedule enough time to fully evaluate and care for our patients
so that they don’t feel rushed, and mistakes can be avoided. We see sick patients
the same day as we feel that delaying care simply allows conditions to worsen.
Dr Giroux is a solo-physician who knows his patients extremely well, and
prides himself on his sense of responsibility, compassion, and thoroughness. He
is personally accessible, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and he even does house calls
when necessary. It’s all part of having a personal physician who very much enjoys
his calling and truly cares about his patients.
