Dr Giddens is an absolute saint. He treated me in a very complex surgery that was life changing. His OR team is second to none. He has the ability to bring the patients life into his family keeping the concerns of not only the patient but the family as well. Absolute saints.

My wife and I both had major surgeries with Dr Giddens. My wife had a very large herniated disc repaired and I had my cervical fused in 3 places. We are both very very pleased with the results. I will need future surgery on my lower back and Dr Giddens will definitely doing it.

Hi Lindsay - Thank you for leaving this positive review. We will be sure to pass along your kind words to Dr. Giddens!
After seeing several doctors and feeling confused and nervous about having them do a fusion, I was recommended by a friend to have a consultation with Dr. Giddens. After just speaking to him for five minutes I knew I wanted him to operate on me, he also explained everything in terms that i easily understood and I was not confused in any way. Unlike other doctors i consulted with that spoke to me using words I couldn't even pronounce let alone even understand. He and his staff were very friendly!
Thank you for the kind words about Dr. Giddens and our practice staff! We appreciate the kind words.
Dr. Giddens came to the hospital 3 times in 2 days to check on me. He has been consistently helpful and kind, often going above and beyond to accommodate my family. His staff is always pleasant and helpful.
Thank you for the positive feedback about Dr. Giddens and his staff. We appreciate your kind words!

Amazing doctor. I suffered from back pain for years. Dr Giddens recommended surgery. Having the procedure was the best decision I have ever made. Dr Giddens gave me back my life!
Loris,SC |
Dr.Giddens is intelligent, compassionate, and interactive. He saved my life after a head on collision automobile accident. I thank God this man was on duty the night of my accident. A nurse told me later that Dr Giddens stayed at the hospital after my late night surgery to monitor my recovery. I highly recommend this wonderful doctor to anyone.

I had back surgery the first of May. Have no idea what he did. I only saw him one time after my surgery and that was the morning after. Every time after that the PA saw me. When I went back for my follow-up I also saw the PA. They have yet to tell me what procedure or procedures they did. What I do know is that I have been in constant pain since the surgery. Pain is worse than it ever was before the surgery. I have no use for a doctor that has no interest in his patients after the fact!
Myrtle Beach, SC |
The most awful experience of my life, he has no sympathy or concern for his patients
Thank you for contacting us. We would like to address these concerns with you directly. Please call our administration at 843-449-2336 at your convenience to discuss this further. Thank you.

Very patient and considerate. Felt like he was interested in me as an individual.
in Calabash, Nc |
We went to Dr. Giddens already prepared with info because we knew already the most serious issue that needed to be done first. Surgery went well. Aftercare was/is the big issue. He is in so much pain he is talking suicide because Dr. Giddens won't consider any further examinations to look at other parts and won't give painkillers either. My fiancé doesn't want to be stuck on pain meds. He wants help figuring out what is wrong but has been blown off by doctors disinterest.
