Dr. Garland and his excellent nurses took great care of me in November, 2016. I had outpatient surgery to remove varicose veins. He and his team (Lynette & Claudia) made me feel comfortable the entire time and reduced my anxiety tremendously. They kept me updated on progress made during the two-hour procedure, so I knew what was about to happen. Follow-up care was explained thoroughly to me, and they made sure all of my questions were answered. Cannot recommend this team more highly!

Dr. Garland is a very caring and personable young man so impressed that he gave me his personal e-mail and cell number in case anything came up before my carotid artery surgery.

He sat down and looked me in the eye to talk with me, so important, good job. The wait times were longish, not sure how much Longer I would have had to wait had I not gotten out of room 4 and said something to the receptionist , could be faster at getting an itemized zed receipt. More transparency in billing. Had I known the procedure cost $3500 per leg my payment of $2900 would have seemed to me more palatable. Music in waiting room should be more professional Muzak would be fine with me.

VIR is the the best Vascular Center of the Rockies. They truly take the time to listen to my concerns and discuss the full range of therapies available. They go above and beyond ensuring I understand what is the problem, the anatomy involved and why they are recommending each treatment for my condition. A truly unique office of caring providers. I wouldn't go to anyone else!

Dr. Garland is a highly intelligent, compassionate communicator. Whether he was speaking to me, my family, or his co-workers, Ty was patient, honest, humble, and kind. Aside from being a completely decent human, his execution of my complex, high-risk procedure was incredibly successful. I cannot say enough good things about this doctor, and I am so grateful for his care.
