About Me

Care Philosophy

As a sports medicine specialist, I believe it is important to treat the whole athlete not just the injury. Understanding biomechanics, sports specific overuse phenomenons and patient functional strength, allows me to look at more than just the injury. This ensures better outcomes and long term success for the athlete.

What People Say About Dr. Charles Garten II, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was having chronic pain in my left side. After 2 visits to the emergency room an X-Ray and an MRI which yielded no results, I reached out to Dr. Garten. He quickly diagnosed my condition and prescribed 2 medications. He told me there were other options if the treatment did not work and to reach back out to him. I have tried for over 2 weeks to schedule a follow up only to be told by the receptionist that he has no further treatment options. I feel completely abandoned!

I have been going to Dr Garten for over 10 years. My variety of orthopedic issues have all been resolved to my satisfaction. Dr Garten is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. I also believe he keeps up with the most up to date treatments. He is one of the kindest and warmest physicians I have known. As a nurse I have worked with many physicians and Dr Garten is one of the very best doctors I have known. Thank you Dr Garten! Julie L

I've already referred him, my friend as grateful I am. Dr. Garten explains things clearly, calmly, warm personality, reassuring, explained options, his reasons for his recommendation, what to expect from various courses of action ... no pressure. My second visit today he proposed an injection into my hip joint. I *HATE* needles, *HATE* shots; he said, "I'm very good with people who hate needles." And he was right. It was over in 7 seconds! and within hours ALL pain is gone. Color me happy.

I highly recommend Dr. Garten. My entire family has seen him for various orthopedic issues over the past ten years. He takes the time to thoroughly explain the medical condition, listens to the patient's concerns then provides treatment options with special consideration of the patient's personal fitness goals. He is determined and dedicated to getting his patients functioning at levels that enable them to be as active as they desire whether they are a professional or recreational athlete.
