Review for Dr. Stewart

Horrible experience. Cold and uncaring. Doesn't care to hear what the patient or their advocate has to see. Discharged patient before they can hold food down. Doesn't like to be questioned. Put on an air about a extremely rare syndrome that I believe he has no idea how to treat it.

Review for Dr. Malik

I have been seeing Dr. Garcia for 3 1/2 years and have been very pleased. He is efficient, thorough, and attentive to concerns and patient needs. I recently had a cardiac cath and couldn't be more pleased with the care and his bedside manner. I highly recommend this provider!
