My visit was on Dec. 7 at 1:30 PM. I found the staff very kind and helpful in this new experience. Everything went very smoothly. The facility was neat and clean. The results were great. My recovery was without any problem. I did not realize at the time that Dr. Garza was also my doctor in 2010. Thank you all.

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.
