    Dr. Garcia provides a complete exam. He not only looks at the medical side but also at healthy living. He takes his time and is very interested in being sure he is treating the entire person. I appreciate his thoughtfulness and skill.

    I would not recommend Dr Garcia to anyone. He has perhaps the most unprofessional staff I have ever encountered! His receptionist Elia thinks she is a Doctor and I'm surprised with the Liberty she takes giving out medical advice - she is a lawsuit waiting to happen! His nurse is extremely rude and I feel like I am bothering her or inconveniencing her when I call with a question. I think his staff is in the wrong profession. I have never seen individual who care less about patients than these
