Dr. Giddens is the best! I wouldn’t go to anyone else. My husband broke his neck and back in a motorcycle wreck. Dr. Giddens saved his life. I have scoliosis. I was in so much pain. Dr. Giddens fixed me with cervical and lower lumbar fusions. Our daughter had a successful discectomy by Dr Giddens. The care is superb from beginning to end. He’s straight up with you too.

Made 2 trips without being appraised by office; first visit need current MRI, second visit, needed to bring disc. This we were not told in advance. Dr. Made brief appearance was actually quite arrogant and very dismissive of my issues because I also have COPD and age 68. No exam, no discussion of 10 years plus history ( which we are certain he did not read), which our previous doctor sent to him. My wife and I both felt he was looking at me as not as a patient, but a paycheck. bye, bye

Dr Giddens is a soft spoken no nonsense man. He has done three surgeries on me and I have always be confident that he would do what was best for me. I wouldn’t have anyone else work on my back.

I am a disabled veteran, who has been fighting pain and discomfort for over 11 years. I originally injured my neck and back when I was on active duty, I have been seen by at least 5 other neurosurgeons, and every time VA or Health Choice was contacted, the situation would fall through. this time Dr. Giddens had no problem getting the approval needed. The condition in my neck was to The point I had numbness and lack of motion. The same day of surgery I had feeling and movement back immediately.

I am a Us Army disabled Veteran and Dr. Giddens performed surgery on my lower back, which took place at the grand strand medical center in Myrtle Beach SC, the surgery went great and 3 weeks later I am recovering and walking slowly but with a lot of progress. Thanks Dr. Giddens and crew for your outstanding job.

Dr. Giddens took care of our daughter in an emergency situation and I can't say enough about the care she received and the way Dr. Giddens was always ready to answer questions and explain everything. His office staff is very easy to deal with and very caring. I would recommend him to everyone.

Easy to reach people and schedule. He is very caring and follows your condition after surgery. The only problem is that he is so booked up!

I met Dr Giddens for a very serious issue with my spine. In my short period with him it was evident he is very true to his word. He looks you in the eye when he speaks to you. He tells you the truth. In my situation he could not help at this time and told me could do this or that but it would be worsening. So he is not about the money. He is about the individual. If it comes down to needing his service I will with out a doubt go to him. He is very well mannered and I trust him. My heart feeling.
