I felt as though Dr. Garrett truly cared about my health concerns and situation. He thoroughly explained the options I had to correct by health condition and made it easy to make the necessary decisions.

He did a good job making me feel comfortable and was very friendly and personable

Dr Garrett was outstanding! i appreciated his attention to detail with me and his listening skills were great. He explained the workings of the gall bladder while relating that to my symptoms. He spent more time with me than any doctor before, it was obvious that he had a love for sharing information to problem solve my situation. I was grateful for his expertise.

One of the best doctors I've ever been treated by.

Dr.Garrett and his Assistant Karen Gallo are exceptional people. They are truly interested and concerned with your well being and health. Both are easy to talk to, likable and knowledgeable. When my health need fits their specialties, I would not consider any other provider in the UPMC network.

Dr. Garrett has performed out patient minor surgery on me on my recent visit and a couple times over the past couple years with very good service and treatment each time.

friendly and helpful

In contrast to the surgeon I had visited 2 yr prior about the same condition, this provider presented statistics about my hernia which eased my concern greatly about the need for a repair. This avoids surgery which he considered totally elective. I'm grateful to him and the PA and staff. I will return to him if situation warrants.
