This was my first visit with Dr. Garvey. I typically make appointment with whom ever is available. I will make future appointments with him. He was very patient with me as I had a lot of questions and concerns about results I had received from another doctor. He did not rush me and answered my question in a patient, professional and concerning way.

I've seen Dr Garvey many times, and always had an excellent experience. He does a great job of listening to his patients, explaining things in a common sense way, and getting through the appointment quickly but thuroughaly. I appreciate that he doesn't make a big deal out of nothing but would know how to calmly and rationally deal with a situation if it was a big deal.
