Dr. Garcia is an excellent surgeon. My foot had an injury that was severe and in learning about the difficulties from it's general prognosis is that many people have difficulty throughout their life after this injury. Dr. Garcia has helped me return to almost my full normal function prior to the injury. She is very knowledgeable and skilled as a surgeon.

Dr. Garcia was great! Very knowledge and cared about my health. Overall best experience I have ever had at a doctors office!
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
