The doctor clearly explained what she would be doing in getting a sample for biopsy, what I can expect later and gave me printed information to reinforce what she told me.

I had a very good experience at your office. The people were very friendly and easy to talk with. Dr. Garvey answered any concerns I had and explained everything to me as she went through my appointment. The wait after getting into the exam room was rather long but I also understand things come up. I would recommend doctor Garvey to friends.
