This was my first time with Dr Garvey. Her office was very comfortable and clean. Staff was excellent. Dr Garvey was professional, friendly and through. I never felt that she was rushing to get to her next patient. She completed her exam and answered my questions and made her recommendations. I look forward to having her as part of my medical team and will see her in a year unless needed otherwise. I feel very confident in recommending Dr Garvey to any future patient.
