This was my first visit and I was very happy with their care. The information I received made me feel very comforted for the surgery. I'm glad my family Dr. recommend Dr. Garret.

August 31, 2017

The receptionist at Dr. Garretts office was so personable, pleasant upbeat, along with the MA. I can't speak enough about Karen Gallo, talk about upbeat, informative assistant. Of course Dr.Garrett was kind, very articulate about the care we (my husband and I both were seen together, our choice in same room)received. We left the appointment feeling well informed and confident that we chose the correct surgeon for our concerns.

you could not ask for anything better

This doctor reviewed my options for treatment after the examine and performed a procedure on a non-related issue that cropped up just prior to my visit. In all between Dr. Garrett and Michael the student in training they spent 1.5 hours getting to know my medical and family history and helping me with the issues at hand. Also Karen the nurse was very helpful answering my last minute questions shortly before I departed. Great job and I would recommend them to anyone in the future.
