Dr. Garb made what is usually a very uncomfortable visit, so pleasant and easy. He was extremely thorough in his preliminary evaluation of my symptoms and concerns; his exam was swift, painless and professional, and he closed out the visit with extensive explanation and appropriate orders. I can guarantee he will be my only Gyno and the physician to whom I refer my friends and family.

I LOOOVVEEE Dr. Garb. He is my favorite doctor - and how many people say that about a gynecologist. While I know he makes notes of personal things about his patients and asks them about life (even a year later), it is extremely comforting. I know he probably doesn't remember me, but it feels like he does. He genuinely seems to care. He is super friendly and very professional. Additionally, I LOVE that I literally can walk in at a few minutes to 1pm and then am walking out at 1:25pm. Granted, I didn't have any issues. However, he is just so efficient. It makes me feel that he values my time by not making me wait a lot.

Dr. Garb is a world-class physician. Although I have several high-quality women's health options minutes from my home, I choose to make the hour+ drive to continue care with Dr. Garb. Sadly, my last visit with him was confirm a miscarriage. His bedside manner is superb, and although the circumstances were unfortunate, both my husband and I were/are confident in the care and advice we received.
