I've been seeing Dr. Giles since coming to Gun Barrel almost 3 years ago. I used to be in medical sales and have met an awful lot of Doctors. Dr. Giles is one of the Best I've dealt with as a patient or a salesman. A True Professional and a Gentleman.

Dr Giles cared for my mother in law for several years. On her last visit before she entered hospice he spent over an hour and a half with her and the family examining her, answering questions, and shedding a few tears as he gave her a good bye hug. I practiced medicine for over forty years and have rarely witnessed a better example of the physician's highest calling - to balance science with caring and to comfort always. Dr Giles has my utmost praise and highest respect for the care he provided.
