Babylon, NY |
Having a mother who had an issue, I wasn't surprised when I had chronic UTI's. I visited two different doctors on Long Island who did not get the issue resolved (gave each a year). I looked for a NYC city planning on going into Manhattan and lucked out when I came across this doctor who is on Long Island and NYC. He resolved the issue right out of the gate. Highly recommend this doctor.....

In December of 2016, my bladder prolapsed yet again. During a partial hysterectomy in 2007, it was tacked up, but that did not completely fix the problem. My gynecologist recommended Dr. Garely. My first visit was in his NYC office whereby he recommended using FDA approved mesh to hold my bladder in place. On a scale of 1-10, my case was a 9, and at 50 years old, I did not want to live this way. He performed the surgery without a hitch. Today I am healed, happy, and satisfied with the results.

He is truly a great doctor. He was informative and caring and the staff was excellent.
in Bronx, NY |
I went to Dr. Garely for a Hysterectomy 2 months ago. Not only do I feel 100% better, but the process leading up to and after the surgery were excellent, thanks to Dr. Garely. The staff was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions with ease. I trusted his decisions and would highly recommend him.
New York, NY |
When contemplating surgery for uterine prolapse, my gynecologist recommended that I meet with Dr. Garely for a second opinion: She views him as a “doctor’s doctor” because of his track record in repairing the botched surgeries of other doctors, particularly those involving the inappropriate use of surgical mesh. I shared the first surgeon’s recommendations with Dr. Garely, who noted that he thought the original doctor was highly capable. But he said that in my case he would opt for abdomin

Dr. Garely performed a supracervical hysterectomy (for uterine prolapse) on me six weeks ago with outstanding results. I feel brand new! It was easy for me to undergo this surgery because I trusted him completely. Dr. Garely is always professional knowledgeable, honest and kind. He is attentive and takes time to answer all questions. Dr. Garely also offers conservative measures if you are not ready for surgery.

I had a hysterectomy and other pelvic repair procedures with Dr. Garley eight weeks ago at South Nassau Community Hospital. The surgery was successful, the recovery was very easy and the staff at both Dr. Garely's office and the the hospital were excellent.

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

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.
