I have been a patient of Dr. Andrea Garrett for more than 15 years now. Dr. Garrett is the most kind and compassionate physician that I have ever received treatment from for any medical need. Always on schedule and still giving of her time to listen to my concerns. Detailing her diagnosis and treatment plan, she is a wonderful communicator. I am totally confident in her abilities to address my needs and keep me healthy. My 75% Irish-complexion is challenging, to say the least. Remember to keep that SPF 70 sunscreen close at hand! And use it!!

Dr. Garrett's office is clean, efficient, and has many modern tools. She was fast, professional, knowledgeable, and alleviated any fears I had about skin damage. The visit seemed a bit rushed, but I don't feel like she didn't exam well, just that she is a doctor who has other patients and does not waste time. I would highly recommend her.
