Incredibly positive experience with Dr. Garrett and his assistance, Karen. They took the time to review the surgery and post-surgery recovery expectations. They reviewed the CAT scan findings to explain the procedure. This is a first rate team and very patient-focused.

Dr. Garrett and his staff are always attentive and professional with me.

dr Garrett is very understanding, caring and compassionate when dealing with. his patients. takes time to explain everything completely to myself and family( even though I handle my care my self). many dr. do not not even recognize my wife when she is with me. dr Garrett even pushed my oxygen cart when I was walking the ward after surgery last summer( he even walked around twice when I wanted to go more). dr was not on call and was visiting a friend on the floor after his work day. this, to me, is the sign of his character as a caring human being and the ideal dr.

Excellent doctor. He read my medical file and was familiar with my previous surgery. Good listener. Explained the procedures very well. Answered all my questions. Felt very comfortable with him. Highly recommend him to anyone.

It was good other than needing an ultrasound. It seemed like he was always going to order this and I would have preferred just to have it scheduled prior to this visit. The visit felt as if my time was wasted...I did not get any answers but still had to come in for the consult
