Chose not to use this Doctor.

I was referred to this doctor by my GP after he believed I had cataracts. So surgery was next. I was told by the hospital staff that Dr. Bigles Geigel has no hospital privileges. What if something was to happen during surgery and I needing to go to the hospital. Can he even be there to do anything to help me?

An Amazing Doctor and Overall Experience

I have been going to a variety of doctors for 64 years now and without a doubt Dr. Bigles relates to his patients better than any I have ever dealt with. I would say he has the best "bedside manner" of any doctor I have ever had, but I don't want to scare anyone away thinking that cataract surgery will put you in bed. It's just a way of saying he's the best I've ever related to. He is extremely perceptive and sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of his patients putting them at ease from the moment you first meet. I, like most people, was apprehensive at the thought of someone cutting into my eyes, but after 5 minutes with Dr. Bigles I was ready for anything. The entire experience, from the first examination to the final post-op follow up after the second eye was complete, was as pleasurable and pain free as any medical experience could possibly be. In fact, after my first eye was done I had an appointment with my dental hygienist. After she finished cleaning my teeth she asked me how the "whole cataract surgery thing was?" I had to tell her that it was a lot better than what she had just done to me! Dr. Bigles not only has a great bedside manner, but he is an expert in his field. He used the latest laser procedures on both my eyes, successfully correcting my astigmatism and rendering me 20 20 in both eyes. His office and nursing staff are top notch, professional, courteous and genuinely interested in the patient's well being. They went out of their way to accommodate my every need and request. I just can't say enough about this whole experience. I must confess that I spent weeks agonizing over which doctor to choose to do my surgeries, and I thank God for finally leading me to Dr. Bigles. If you are within driving distance of Covington, Ga. it will be well worth your time to choose Dr. Bigles for your eye care needs.

Apology

Dr. Bigles, I am very sorry for the hurtful review I wrote in haste regarding my dad a few months ago. I was angry and did not give you an opportunity to address my concerns. I would also like to apologize to your staff and anyone who may have been affected by my angry remarks. After meeting with you, I feel that you are an understanding and very compassionate person. I know that you are a very skilled and accomplished surgeon and that you care for your patients. I would not hesitate to come to you or recommend you to my friends and family. Again, Dr. Bigles, please accept my sincerest apology and thank you for addressing my concerns. Also, a special thanks to Christy and Stacy for their help and kindness as well.

Patient

Dr. Bigles did cataract and multi-focal lens surgery on both of my eyes. I was very afraid, but Dr. Bigles' calm demeanor put me at ease immediately as he walked me through both surgeries. Today I don't even wear glasses! His staff is fun, lively and seem to really care about their patients. In today's medical world -- that can make all the difference in the world. Thanks Dr. Bigles.
