Dr Is very courteous and answers any question in detail. I don't feel rushed and am confident with his answers on my discoid Lupus issue. Secretary is pleasant though at first you may feel she's not. Only complaint I have is waiting time is too long. Appointment is scheduled but it's almost an hour wait after scheduled time.

I recently went to see Dr. ,i was suffering various issues of hair loss and fatigue and I was worked up for autoimmune issues during my visit with Dr. Garner I found him to be utmost professional in his field ,he eased all my anxieties and was very thorough in explaining all my medical conditions I hold Dr Garner in the highest regard and would highly recommend him to friends and family. I wish all doctors possessed the care, concern,and compassion, that he does with his patience.

I was sent to Dr. Garner with a diagnosis of Lupus. He spent an hour with my sister and me going over all my previous records and examining me and explaining why thank G-d I did not have Lupus. He was kind and compassionate. He treated us both courteously and answered all of our questions without talking down to us. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a rheumatologist in Brooklyn
