Dr. Giegengack is the best! He has taken very good care of me and I appreciate him.When i talk with anyone who is looking at cataract surgery, I always tell them about Dr. G. the last time I was in his office in Greensboro , a elderly friend of our was in the office at he same time. I am so thankful my friend told me about him.

6/29/2015

I have just recommended *Dr. G. to a neighbor.

6/22/2015

Dr. Gigengack is the first doctor to recognize a multiplicity of problems instead of just saying "go buy some refresh tears and see me in a year" For me, it is very exciting to feel such confidence about a physician within 15 seconds!

As I stated before, all of my experiences have been very good.

Dr. Giegengack is a very knowledgeable doctor; yet, he can explain a patient's care and concerns in laymen's terms. Once he is in the examining room with you, you are his only concern.
