3/2/2018

I was told by a doctor friend of mine that Dr. Giegengack would "shoot straight" with me and he did. That is what I wanted and needed to get some clarity on my current vision problems and their causes. I found him to be extremely thorough and knowledgeable and the information he gave me encouraged me and gave me hope that at least one of my vision problems is correctable. YAY! I've been to several other "eye-care physicians" and only got a lot of "I don't know" and vague information-less responses. Dr. Giegengack was different. I like him a lot!

Dr. Gigengack is one of the finest and knowledgeable physicians in my physician life group.

He is exceptional; and I trust a very valuable physician of Wake Forest Baptist Hospital team.
