I found her to be very cold and uncaring. She is impossible to get in touch with and her assistant seems to only find time to return phone calls on Fridays between 4:55-4:57. The last 3 messages I left with her office have yet to be returned, going on 2 weeks...

I had a sudden small bowel blockage and was horribly sick. Dr. Garcia Soto saved the day and was cautious, caring and knowledgeable. She fixed the bowel obstruction, performed a full hysterectomy, removed a large cyst and made sure that nothing spilled into my abdomen if it might have been cancerous. On top of that, she fixed some of the issues I had from a prior abdominal surgery 4.5 years ago. All the while she was caring and informative. HIGHLY recommend!

I was first referred to Dr. Garcia- Soto a year ago. She is the most professional and compassionate doctor I have ever had the pleasure to see. She and her assistant, Nicole, are kind and knowledgeable and I was informed of every step of every procedure. I would recommend them highly because they have taken excellent care of me!

I desperately needed to get my mother into a care facility as I could no longer care for her at home. Paperwork was required of Dr Soto as her cancer care physician. For 3 days I was told the Dr was in surgery and could not fill out the paperwork. This was even after I cried in the office, begging for the paperwork - I was so desperate. The nurse finally called me back at 11:55 on a Friday - told me they would not be able to fill out the papers and they were closing at noon. Wow.

I cannot express how thankful I am to have had Dr. Garcia Soto handle my hysterectomy. I was told by my regular OBGYN that my surgery was “risky” and she wouldn’t perform it. So I was referred to Dr. Garcia Soto. She and her Nurse, Nicole, have an amazing knowledge of the most current aspects of their industry. But the best part is that they CARE. I believed I could trust Dr. Garcia Soto and she proved it! I healed beautifully and feel great. Thank you so much!!!! I will definitely refer you!

Dr. Garcia-Soto has been a God-send to me. She is the most caring and communicative physician I've ever had. She takes time with you. She explains things and asks you questions. She is very smart and up to date in this area.. She's a skilled surgeon. I have been her patient for over a year. No one wants to have to see an oncologist, but if you do, she's the one to have as your physician and advocate. She and her staff have been wonderful and easy to work with.. Very caring! Much appreciated.

DR Garcia is the most caring and personalized doctor I have ever seen, she is very informative on the care plan and treatment..She took my mom for supposed to be a 1-2 h surgery but ended up to be 4 hrs, she was very cautious and very informative on what is going on throughout the surgery. She has been very attentive to my mom needs and her office staff nurses are very quick on returning calls. we are really fortunate to be under her care, she is a to go to Doctor.

i have recently had surgery by dr. Garcia and it is so sad that I wasn't even informed what was done to me . What all structures were removed from my body. I didn't even know I had stitches at one part of my body until I went to a 2 week follow up. Dr. has informed us that she will come talk to me in detailed about the surgery on the morning of the scheduled date but she didn't come until 10minutes prior to the scheduled surgery time and has never explained anything about the procedure.

This is the most caring gynocologist I have ever come into contact with. She is so gentle and reassuring. The fact that I need an oncologistmakes her a double blessing.
