Dr Garvey is one of the most sensitive and friendly doctors I have ever seen. I wish all healthcare providers I dealt with were like her.

This was a second opinion appointment and I was impressed by how much time Dr. Garvey spent explaining the condition and treatment plan to me. I plan to continue seeing her in the future.

Dr. Garvey was on time and since her assistant had questioned me about any concerns, her appointment with me was expedient without any waste of her time or mine. She explained her procedures thoroughly so that I would be able to follow up on my own. She was gentle and courteous. I felt very comfortable in her presence and would not hesitate to recommend her to others...in fact I have done that.
