Pretty stressed out before my “double”. But lots of in person communication by Dr Garza and his team made it OK. Really appreciated his genuine concern about the results. Feeling much better already. Glad to know what’s wrong with me. Followup in 2 months and I won’t be stressed at all. Thank you, Dr Garza.

I write this review to let you know that a simple procedure can go wrong. My husband had to have a Life or Death surgery done. He came out with 7 tubes 2 IVs and a respirator. 3 more procedures followed. After a total of 6 weeks in the hospital he finally came home. We were a cuddly love expressing couple but that took a 180 degree turn around because of all the pain he endures from a simple touch. Its been over a year now this experience has totally change our lives. Cherish your love ones everyday. What angers me is that not 1 time did I meet you are talk to you before are after the procedure.

From the receptionist at his Sisters Grove pavilion, to his staff at the Endoscopy Center and Dr. Garza were all very friendly, helpful, reassuring, informative, and very efficient. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. The actual procedure was about 20 minutes. They said to arrive 1 hour before and 1 hour procedure, I checked in at 10am and was out by 11:30am. I have never seen a more friendly and efficient medical staff in over 20 years. Dr. Garza and his staff are the best! Thank-You!

I have been a patient of Dr Austin Garza for three years. I live a couple of hours away and the staff was accommodating with mailing presurgical documents and following up with phone calls. Upon arrival, I was treated with respect from everyone. Once back in pre-op, I was not kept waiting. The nurses were attentive and thorough. Easy to talk to and ask questions. Procedure and results explained thoroughly by staff and Dr. Garza. Highly recommend him.

I dont know how Dr. Garza is, but the office he works for is the most disorganized practice I have ever seen. They basically black balled by wife because we didnt want to go to the Sisters Grove location. We didnt want to go there because our daughter passed away at St. Francis in 2015 and we just cant bring ourselves to go back there. We were polite about it, but they didnt care and ignored our PCP's referrals, and pretended like they never heard of us.

Dr. Garza is an upmost professional with a very pleasant bedside manner. Of course, I am somewhat biased in that I was a fellow during his time at Vanderbilt also. I would highly recommend Dr. Garza and his colleagues, without reservation.

I research Dr. Garza to help me with my medical needs. I was seen by him for 3 years when i asked for some further support i was not even given the time of day. I also had issues with so called customers and my service animal and being disrespected . They moved me to a new location to get help to hide me from others. I asked for the doctor to help with a letter to help me when i was older to get help from the VA for service connected medical needs. He flat out said NO. Then pawned to staff.

My second colonoscopy in five years was just as excellent a service as the first. The friendliness and professionalism of Dr. Garza and the staff are over the top. There is just nothing to which to attach any negative criticism -- everything from scheduling the procedure to walking out after it is over is done is a way that is a wonderful example of how a business should be run, and the fact that it is an intrusive medical procedure just amplifies how well things CAN be done.
