Verified Patient Reviews
Office is kind of shabby and Dr. Giagnacova has a very informal manner/appearance, but is professional and knows his stuff. Quick turnaround, no upsell pressure.
Looking at the building from the outside made me skeptical at first,but once inside he and his assistant Kim were nothing short of incredible in their professionalism and courtesy.They were thorough in addressing ALL my concerns and I was confident about the course of action suggested for treatment. I have already told my son to make an appointment with him also.
A medical professional in the truest sense. I was suffering from mystery discomfort in my right ankle which limited my usual activity level & had been showing a noticeable limp for longer than a typical sprain. Dr. Albert ordered comprehensive x-rays to pin point the source of the discomfort; and upon visiting with him to review the images, he pointed out the detail that explained the discomfort and we took necessary action to remedy my concern. I really thought it was going to be a stress fracture or something needing surgery, but to my relief wasn't as bad as I had feared. All in all, was a very good choice for the medical attention I needed & he came through a recommendation. Word of mouth - rules!
Dr. Giagnacova was very patient, intelligent and understanding. He gave me several medical options to fix my foot. He took time to really listen to my needs. He seemed to really care about me as a person as well as a patient. I would highly recommend him.
I went in there on Dec 14,2016 was seen in no time he said he didn't take my insurance no more but he still saw me and took care of me I had a ingrown toenail he took it rite out that was really nice of him I think to still see me and do it..... My toe feel so much better now
I highly recommend Dr Giagnacova. His professional approach and demeanor is something I've rarely found in today's practice of medicine. Upon completing my history I was immediately seen by Dr Giagnacova who did a thorough exam and took the time to explain treatment options to me in language I could understand. I left his office confident that I'm in good hands! Allen M.
I had made an appointment with Dr. Giagnacova's office for a bone density test which was listed online as one of the services they offered. When I arrived there, the 2 receptionists had no idea what a dexascan was, and I was told that they didn't provide that service. I informed them that it was listed on their site. They were completely unaware of that. Also, I had filled out my patient forms online, but when I got to the office, I was told that they didn't get them so I had to fill them out again. My appt. was for 9:00, but I was told that the doctor was doing his rounds in the hospital, so he wouldn't be there for a while. He ended up coming in his office at about 9:35. Totally unacceptable visit. He said he had no idea that his site even listed dexa scanning.
The doctor is great. He is friendly, knowledgable and efficient. Apparently I went on a day when the doctor's normally office staff was out and the temps were very rude and unprofessional. However, the doctor was excellent and that is why I will be going back. I hope the staff improves, but a good doctor is hard to find so if I have to ignore a rude receptionist, who cares?
He is a very good surgeon and cares very much about his patients..!!!
The only problem I had was that the address on zoc doc is wrong. I had to call to find the place, something should be done to fix it
This doctor is awesome. He took me in really quick and knew exactly what was going on with my foot. A++ to this guy!
Could not have bin better.
He was not aware that I had an appointment.
Dr Giagnacova is an amazing and thoughtful man. Very thorough in his preparation to remove my two big toenails, which were infected with fungus for over a decade! I am so glad that I finally had this procedure done, and by a very experienced doctor. The little bit of pain that I felt was only at first with the novacane needles, but the procedure was pain-free. The assistant nurse, Kelly, was also very nice and helpful. If you are looking for a top-notch foot doctor to take care of you, look no further.
