Surgeries I have had by doc...left bicep reattachment, trigger finger release, both shoulders orthopedic surgery and two knee fractures. I have also seen doc for various injuries. I have had both a kidney and pancreas transplant and have been on dialysis four times a week for the past six years and never had a complication after any of my surgeries. Doctor Garlick is the best!

I have met with Dr. Garelick numerous times for my numerous injuries (ankle, knee, shoulder, other ankle, not in that order). I recommend him to anyone who needs help. He is fantastic. I would give him 10 stars if I could.
