What People Say About Dr. Neil Giddings, MD

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Giddings. He wrote down everything for me since I can't hear anything. He answered my questions clearly for me to understand. I highly recommend him to anyone with any kind of hearing loss. Gail Geaudreau Ps: My only complaint is both times when I checked in, the receptionist did not ask for payment of my copay. Both times after my appt I had to go back to the check in area and wait in line again to remind them that they did not ask for my copayment earlier.

Doc Giddings is an excellent doctor explaining everything that is going to happen during your procedure. He has a wonderful caring personality. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing his expertise. You have little wait time in his office. One thing I like is he remembers who you are, as many doctors do not when you are not their primary care patient.
