He put together a wonderful three part lecture series. His practice has an entire floor dedicated to holistic health: Meditation, Nutrition, Salt Spa, Balance evaluation. This is all part of his practice. Amazing

Kudos to Drs. Gigante and Lens for a series of three workshops dealing with the facts of life: financial planning, proper nutrition and exercise, and taking responsibility for our health. The workshops complemented the doctors' concern for patients and a focus on facilitating better health naturally, rather than pharmaceutically. Care and concern outside the examine room ... EXCELLENT!

Dr Gigante is very thorough and caring. He takes his time with you and provides very comprehensive care. He reviews your medications regularly and makes changes as necessary realizing that things change. His concern is also demonstrated by his emails and updates on medical news and drugs. Additionally, it is great to have a doctor that can visit you in the hospital as he did with my husband. The staff is knowlegable, personable, and helpful.

Dr. Gigante went out his way to acquire my previous diagnostics and contact other professionals so that he would fully understand my concerns. With this foundation he was then able to establish a comprehensive and effective plan of action. I am honored to have Dr. Gigante as my primary care physician.

I recommend Jim Gigante when asked about him. I've been his patient for about 15 years. He seems to love being a physician and that's reflected in the way he deals with me. He cares about me. No question goes unanswered. There's no beating around the bush with him. He has always told me the truth and has worked to guide me to a right and healthy life style. There are probably several very good doctors on Hilton Head Island. Jim Gigante is certainly one of them. And his two nurses are fabulous!

I'm so thrilled that my OB/GYN recommended Dr. Gigante when I was looking for a primary care physician many years ago. In fact, I no longer go to my OB/GYN as Dr. Gigante handles my yearly pap smear. Dr. Gigante and his staff always make you believe that you are their only patient. In fact, when my company recently changed health insurance I almost cried when I couldn't find Dr. Gigante listed in the IN NETWORK doctors; fortunately, he is IN the new network - WHEW!

I have been with Dr. G since 2012. He has made the jump into the 21st century with Concierge medicine and my wife and I both love the advantages provided. The quality and time spent at each appointment is wonderful. I never feel rushed or pushed and walk away knowing all my questions are answered leaving me with full confidence my health is in good hands. Not only good hands, but excellent hands. I feel I have the best Internal Medicine doctor on the Island!

Dr. Gigante has been my physician for three years now. I stayed on through his transition to a concierge practice and could not be happier. Money well spent. I've reached out to Jim on weekends while out of town and got a personal phone call within an hour. You get a great physical and earnest discussion of any issues. I really like how prescribing drugs is not Jim's first choice. My wife also belongs to his practice and loves it too.
