Not very compassionate, especially with my youth children I’ve noticed. He lacks manners and I saw him give my daughter a dirty look and ignore my daughter when she asked him a question about her braces. And it really worries me that he is face-to-face with youth so much, and he should be working to make them feel comfortable in his office not talked down upon.

The character count here will not allow me to type my whole experience visiting Dr. Garlington’s office so I’m just going to summarize it in one sentence. Dr. Garlington truly cares for his patients. Thank you very much for recognizing that I needed immediate care and for accommodating me on your post-holiday schedule. I couldn’t say in words how much I truly appreciate what you’ve done.
