Patient Comments (5)
in Bluffton, SC |
I guess if you are a narcissistic doc who needs no one, that could explain how I was treated as a patient with Dr Gigante: barely acknowledged or listened to, rude and in the end dumped by his going to a concierge style practice.
in Hilton Head Island, SC |
Worse doctor ever we encountered. This doctor takes the prize for the most rude, arrogant, know-it-all in the history of medicine. He does not listen, just talks AT you with an arrogant condescending tone, and gives the worse case scenario to scare you into following his advice. And if you have your own thoughts, or have the slightest independent opinion that you would like him to consider, you are the enemy. He is threatened by those in the know, or do any research on their own. Rude staff too.

Excellent Doctor and staff. Great professional! Dave T.

Arrogant, an ill-equipped to deal with older patients. I would not send my pet toad to him.

Advertise as old fashioned medicine. Rude stall, never return calls, rude doctor. Go there if you wish to be treated like a number.
