  • This was my first visit with Dr. Garner. She was very thorough and patient as I explained my concerns and questions. She did seem extremely busy however, and it didn't feel like I had her full attention. I was surprised that she didn't follow up with some of the responses to questions on the initial intake form. She was professional and pleasant though.
    Dr seem rushed. Did not order the correct tests for my annual checkup. Probably going to change Drs
    Awesome job!!!
    Dr. Garner was thorough and answered my question. We agreed on future care
    Dr. Garner is knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with.
