I'm not rating this Dr, I dont know him only of him and his quote that's blowing up the internet. The reaction to this from some of these female drs tells me more about their character or lack of. Dr's are supposed to be thoughtful and compassionate you all are neither, shame on you all for trying to destroy this man and his livelihood over his inocuos quote. Your reactions are over zealous raging feminist hyperbole garbage

Dr. Tigges is an excellent doctor. He has been our doctor since 1999 and has served us well. I highly recommend him as a patient and also as a woman.

I have a severe hearing loss and because I asked his nurse to talk direct to me and not to my side, she got offended and became abrasive. She then told Dr. Tigges and upon entering the room he stated I needed to get new hearing aids. He had NO clue as to what this past year had occurred in my life and why my hearing was very poor. Evidently he had never learned how to speak to one who has hearing loss. He himself and his staff need to get more educated so the correct one to talk to one with hearing loss. I won't be around to see if he learns...I am DONE!

Well the front end staff on point professional and timely. After that nightmare no welcoming from nurse just a bad attitude. I own a business she would be fired day one of that. Who doesn't run this business. My guess she the nurse told him I was difficult. and he was cold and uninstrested. This is a no gain for me will not be back. Btw as customer ( patient) we still spend money I will not be treated in such disregard. Best of luck dr Gary Tigges

Rude. Will not listen. His undergraduate degree was in Exercise Physiology- really. He was superficial in his analysis and was eventually wrong in his treatment of the ailment. Very impressed that he has 4000 patients to take care of but couldn't remember me den though I had been with him since 1999. Time for new primary care physician

I had been going to Dr Tigges for several years . I was misdiagnosed by him. I know have kidney disease that was in my records two years back that he missed . It was caught when I was at 25%function . He didn't want to release my records to my kidney dr . I had to get them released . I am now on dialysis at 52 years of age . He runs patients in and out like a herd . Not personable at all . To anyone looking for a dr just remember just because they look nice trendy doesn't mean there is any substance . I look at it now as a bad mechanic .thank you for totally changing my life from your lack of caring and reading blood charts .

Dr. Tigges may not have the best bedside manner, but he is a very knowledgeable doctor. I left his office in tears one time because he told me something that I did not want to hear. He was absolutely right about my condition and the surgery that would have to be done. I think he may have recognized the severity of the situation even before the specialist did. When I later told him how upset I was and how I cried because of what he told me, I think he genuinely felt badly about it. However, he told me that it is his job to tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear. I feel like I can trust Dr. Tigges and based on this I would recommend him to anyone who is willing to listen to a doctor who may be a little rough around the edges when it comes to the bedside manner part of being a doctor.

Good personable, no non sense physician who focuses on your healthcare needs. I have been going to him for 10 years and have had some difficult and run of the mill health issues. I found him to be helpful in both situations. His office system and their follow up is not as easy to deal with as he is. One of his nurses (Bobbi) is at times very difficult to deal with (she may be a retired military sergeant and doesn't know she is out yet). I would say that if you have emotional or psychological issues, you should probably see a psychologist because he focuses primarily on medical issues.
