Had first visit with Dr. Guirgues today. He was very professional and explained my back problem and options in great detail. He took his time to answer all our questions.

I began my journey to back surgery with Dr. Guirgues in 2014 after many years of severe back pain. Dr. Guirgues did not recommend surgery in the beginning but opted for an approach of physical therapy, exercise and stretching. Only after we had exhausted every avenue and I was still in considerable pain did he recommend surgery. My surgery date was 6 months ago where I had a TLIF procedure. I am no longer in pain and have recovered 100%. I cannot say enough good things about this man!

Dr. Guirgues has changed my life. I have suffered from chronic pain for more than two decades associated with my L5 vertebra and surrounding disc and nerve bundles. Dr. G was the first doctor in 14 years to actually X-ray my spine in a position other than supine and revealed the true nature of my issues. I am 6 months post TLIF and am now DRUG FREE for the first time in over 10 years. I am following my exercise regimen and have returned to bowling at a competitive level. Thank you so much!

Lumber fusion (TLIF) Oct, 2016. My experience with Dr Guirgues was extremely positive. He is a highly skilled surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. No more pain and no post-surgery complications.

Lower Back surgery on February 1, 2016. Dr. Guirgues is to the point and explains planned procedures thoroughly giving both the pros and cons while leaving the final decision up to the patient but stressing his recommendations.

When I saw him he and I quote said I can tell that u r in pain, but I will do nothing for u. Basically as I was not surgical I was not worth his time. He said I would be in pain for the rest of my life and I needed to just live with it. I asked for a referral to pain management he never made a referral. I have never in my life been treated with such disdain he was rude dismissive and lacked any compassion. I not the only person to experience this I know of two others that had similar visits.

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.
in Havelock, NC |
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.
in Cedar Point, NC |
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!
