What People Say About Dr. Daren Garb, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Garb's since 2009. In 2011, he identified I had a real concern with my breathing. He had me do a walk test with his nurse. He immediately put me on oxygen and sent me to a pulmonologist. I was angry at first but it turns out it was the best thing he could have done for me and my health. I have lung disease and did not know it but he knew something was wrong. I am morbidly obese and he NEVER judges me on my weight and my concerns. He truly cares! And researches!

Dr. Garb has been my physician for about 5 years. He has been the first doctor to take the time to figure out what is wrong with me, speak to me like a person and get to know me as a patient. He is the doctor that knows my life. He takes the time to understand me. His staff is great, especially his nurse Maisie. She is always responsive and helpful.

Dr. Garb is the ultimate professional medical doctor. He listens when I have concerns, explores them, and advises me based on my medical history. He is caring, remembers, and acknowledges previous conversations, and follows up with them. He takes his time with me and he never appears to be rushing to get to the next patient.Sometimes you have to wait a bit, but he is totally worth the wait. Dr. Garb could not be a better physician. I trust him implicitly. Have already sent two new patients.

Getting test results or getting a response from him his virtually impossible. I had to wait over 2 months for my last physical. Totally unacceptable. The staff at the front desk ask a million questions (and they are not doctors or nurses). I am sure this violates HIPPA regulations.

When I explained my why i was having pain, he told me to stretch, nothing else. He sent me for a blood test for a genetic issue for people from Africa and Asia, when I am northern European. Two weeks after the test, i called for the results. Two weeks later, I'm still waiting to hear from him.
