      Don't wait any longer, make an appointment with Dr. Garely now! He and his staff made this experience so comfortable for me. I can't say enough about everyone involved from the Dr. to his nurses to the hospital staff pre and post op. I was so nervous and was treated so well with care concern and professionalism. Highly recommend Dr. Garely.
      Princeton, NJ |
      Dr. Garely's optimism and confidence at being able to surgically manage my condition and let me get back into life was infectious, and the time he spent with me reviewing my options and risk/benefit information banished my few remaining fears and allowed me to arrive at the hospital on surgery day confident and calm. During my recovery, Dr. Garely and his staff were wonderful and responsive whenever I had a question.

      My hysterectomy went smoothly. Painkillers kept me very comfortable. The Nassau county hospital was lovely. The office staff was great. Best of all, Dr. Garely did a great all around job!
      Holmdel, NJ |
      I'm very happy with Dr Garely. I needed a pelvic sling, had surgery done, no post op pain or complications and I'm back to my routine 6 weeks after the procedure. And I have no more leaks. As far as my office and hospital experience, everyone, from staff, medical team, assistants to Dr. Garely, was very caring and attentive throughout the entire process. The one and only negative aspect of it was the long wait time at the office and hospital before the surgery. 2 hour delay in 2 out of 3 appts
      in Floral Park, NY |
      Dr. Garley has a very good bedside manner, takes time to explain ever thing and his staff is very welcoming and dressed in scrubs which makes anyone feel very comfortable. I had a bladder lift and a hysterectomy and all went very well. While going back after 6 weeks for a check up his presence made my day, he is an excellent surgeon. I would recommend him very highly.....JoAnne

      Dr. Garely Is a great choice when looking to fix your leaky Bladder. I found him to be informative and professional. I knew what to expect and I am delighted with the results. No more mini-pads and embarrassing leaks. Dr Garely is a God send! Not only did he fix my problem but he is kind and very reassuring. He runs his office efficiently and I never have to wait long.

      Gentle knowledgeable and kind. Best bedside manners. Changed my life. Helped me overcome uncomfortable frequent urination. Posterior correction surgery went as a breeze.

      I'm 59 years old and had suffered from cervical prolapse for the past few years. Dr. Garely performed a supra-cervical hysterectomy and trans-vaginal sling. Recovery was gradual but after about 5 weeks I was feeling great. Dr. Garely is a very busy man but he takes tremendous pride in doing a perfect job.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Garely's Care Philosophy

      I strive to provide the highest level of care in the area of urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery. As one of the only fellowship trained and board certified pelvic surgeons (female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery) in New York, I utilize only the most reliable and up to date techniques. Our practice specializes in patients who have been told they have few places to turn. We work closely with some of the best urologists, colorectal surgeons, and plastic surgeons.
