in Hartselle, AL |
After many years of standing and working on concrete in a repetitive motion my left ankle was a mess. Dr. Garcia fused one of the joints and did some other work to try to fix it. Surgery was Dec. 7 , 2016. To date it hasn't come as far as I was looking for but it still may.

Dr.Garcia is one of the best doctor I have seen
Huntsville, AL |
I was eager to see Dr. Garcia for my foot problem as I had heard many good things. Although the wait was short her staff is not very friendly or helpful ("nurses" that are not nurses, etc.). Dr. Garcia only spent a few minutes with me and while I'm sure she diagnosed my problem correctly, I didn't have the opportunity to really ask questions, etc. She was very much in a hurry and I was left feeling confused about things like shoes, appropriate activity, etc. Very disappointed.

She is a good surgeon my bunion surgery went well but when I asked about a surgical boot instead of a cast she became rude. I have had the surgery done on my other foot and was put in a boot immediately by t the surgeon but her "protocol" is a cast that goes up your leg. Her team also did not do alot of solid teaching about medications
