  • Dr. Garner is very knowledgeable and cares about her patients. She never hesitates to order labs when needed or refer you to a specialist.
    Dr. Garner sets the standard as a heath care provider. She is always prepared and knowledgeable about my and my wife's medical needs. In fact, if not for her dogged pursuit of answers regarding a medical condition that was being misdiagnosed by other doctors, my wife would be dead now. Even before this, however, I was struck by her medical knowledge, her empathy, her listening skills, and her clarity in communicating. I have recommended her to at least a half dozen friends who were looking for a good doctor. In short, there is no better general practitioner that I have ever dealt with, and I've had a number of excellent doctors in my 68 years.
    I've been a patient of Dr. Garner for 4 plus years and always appreciate her service.
    Dr Garner is a delight, easy to understand professional and caring. The office is very helpful as well.
    I'm always impressed with how quickly I get a response from messaging Dr Garner
