My experience with Dr. Guirgues and the Center was better than I ever expected. Everything and everyone was great. Had bad leg pain off and on for 18 months. After surgery at Carolina Center for Surgery, have been pain free and back to normal life.

He is a great doctor and I recommend him to anyone. He made me feel absolutely phenomenal after the surgery.

In and out microdiscectomy at surgery center.. No surgical complications other than pain controlled by meds. Dr Guirgues did an excellent surgery w/small incision. My problems started approx 1 1/2 years prior w/visits to another ortho who referred me for p.t. And steroid injections w/minor relief. Then wanted to send me to Greenville or Wilmington for surgery. I declined and went to Dr Guirgues and am I glad I did. Would highly recommend him. Gave me quality of life back.Can't say enough

Dr. Guirgues is an amazing surgeon that I would recommend to any person who needs a surgical procedure done, I am so happy that I was referred to him and Thank God for placing me in his care!!!
in Jacksonville, NC |
Dr. Guirgues is more interested in improving my lifestyle and easing my pain than offering a quick fix. I will definitely return for my follow up visit and I will recommend him to my friends.
in Beaufort, NC |
I have never been to his office when I waited less than an hour. This most recent time I waited over 2 hours before I actually saw the doctor and then he spent less than 15 minutes with me. He never reviewed the MRIs with me; just said he couldn't help me. I would never recommend him to anyone.

God forbid you visit him when he has more important places to be or things to do. By 16 year old was very upset by his lack of interest and his attitude of hurry up you are wasting my time. In addition included that she was a smoker! Really that isn't true and he presented us with someone else xrays to make his diagnoses. Her regular physician called us to let us know the incorrect information he had filed with the regular doctor and the insurance company!
