Dr Garvey is very thorough, takes time to answer my questions and she explains what she is doing throughout the entire full body scan. She has a very good bedside manner. However, I didn’t appreciate having an intern/trainee in the room when it came time to scan my genital skin which is embarrassing enough without adding people to the room. It didn’t cross their mind once whether or not I was comfortable with it. At least I don’t have to go back for another year.

Dr. Garvey was extremely professional in working with both my son and I during our recent encounters with her. She is someone who has a phenomenal bedside manner and puts you at ease with any procedure you may need. She was an excellent referral to me from my wife and I would refer her to anyone!
