Just "Love" Dr Gigengack, After many appointments and surgeries, never disappointed with his care. Treats you like family, great interpersonal skills and always professional. Can't imagine a better Doctor and I have seen many.

8/30/2015

Dr. Giegengack is very friendly and down-to-earth, compared to some other specialists at Wake Forest. When I was having some problems getting a date set for an operation (the scheduling assistants wouldn't/couldn't commit), I wrote him via MyWakeHealth and he immediately took care of it. I know he is extremely busy and so this really meant a lot. I would recommend him to anyone.

8/25/2015

I was concerned about this procedure before the surgery, but the entire medical staff made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and confident that everything was going to be alright. I could not ask for better care, situation, or experience than I had while being in the care of a very competent and professionally group of medical people.

8/3/2015

Dr. G. is always the best, he takes time to explain your situation, he is always concerned about you. I do always recommend him to those who ask me about my doctor. He is very easy to talk to and he is just wonderful!

7/27/2015

He is compassionate, professional, knowledgeable, & caring. He is very interested in the lifestyle I lead & presents options for us to discuss the best choice related to my vision. He is not only concerned with the present challenging eye condition, but left me with hope for possible option if/when science comes up with another choice. I cannot imagine any dr. better than him.
