Dr. Garvey was very pleasant and reassuring. I would have liked her to come back in the room, after the treatment was done and I was dressed, to just review any further questions that I had. Actually, I did end up speaking to the office manager re. another issue because the Dr. was unavailable and with another pt. Suggest having a health/med history form online to download for new pt. to complete. It would save time especially if there is much information to list.

Dr. Garvey gave us thoughtful, kind and wonderful care. One small thing--we live out of town. When I clicked on your web directions to find the clinic, my computer crashed. I think there is something wrong with your software.

I already recommended Dr. Garvey to a few people. The appointment was quick but extremely thorough, looking at my 100s of moles, not just the ones that look concerning. For the ones that may become a concern, she measured them and took photos. She also educated me on my moles.
