Good experience. Thank you

I consulted Dr. Garrett about a hernia that I have. He was professional, thorough and very informative. He took the time to talk to me and answer my questions. His assistant, Karen, was also very informative and helpful.

The visit to the office was exceptional. Dr. Garrett and his assistant Karen Gallo were comprehensive and responsive. I was impressed how Dr Garrett wove teaching the medical student into the exam without being cumbersome.

Dr. Garett's office runs like a Swiss watch. Outstanding care in every respect.

November 29, 2018

Dr. Garrett listened to my concerns regarding specifically the risks involved with the pending surgery; also acknowledged the difficulty of the surgery due to previous surgeries in the same area. His assistant, Karen, was very helpful with information about pre-surgical preparation, records, and listening to my concerns about travel from such a great distance on the morning of the surgery.

November 27, 2018

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Garrett. He took the time to connect with me on a personal level, but still remained professional. Explained my upcoming surgery in an easy to understand manner. I had heard that he was the best from more than one person and they were so right. So worth the 1.5 hour trip to see him.
