  • She's always running late, even before Covid
    I feel that Dr. Garner is an outstanding primary care provider.
    The doctor is very thoughtful, listens, and gives me easy to understand feedback.
    Very pleased with my care provided.
    Once in exam room, I waited for over 1/2 hour for doctor. Once doctor left, I waited another 15 minutes for EKG exam. I spend a lot of time waiting and during this Covid time, it was very concerning.
