in Rock Hill SC |
Dr Garretson does not know how to treat patients. His level of medical knowledge is suspect. It is a shame there is no other gastroenterologist group in Rock Hill.
Rock Hill, SC |
Awful doctor no compassion, care or concern about my father at all. He was so smug and acted as if he did not have time for us. This experience was awful I would never recommend him to anyone not even an animal. My dad appt was with the Dr., he sent in a nurse practitioner in she was only concerned about if I was a nurse or not. so she left out of the exam room and the Dr. came in it was so disrespectful he did not acknowledge any question or concerns we had there was no reason for the appt.
