Dr. Garras is both my hero and my families hero! After a severe car accident in May 2019 I was left with numerous broken bones, sprains and other injuries. Dr. Garras made sure every bone healed the right way while making sure I clearly understood every step of the process. I was able to go back to school in August without any casts/boots etc. Thank you Dr. Garras!!!!

Dr. Garras could not have been more helpful...he was understanding and empathetic to my situation. He gave me a few options with regards to treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Garras if you are having ankle/Achilles tendon issues. He is very thorough and listens to your concerns.

Doctor's treatment was very thorough and explanatory with time for my questions as well as my wife's. Prior to my surgery, he was upbeat and again quite informative about the procedure. My God bless this man and all those who assisted at the Surgery Center and keep them safe and healthy during these very trying times. Dr. Garras has also provided excellent care to my wife, one son and "hands on treatment" to one of our grandaughters during her nurse's training. He is one the best, thank you Dr.Garras!

Well I’ll go back to when I first met Doc. I had sustained an on duty injury. I had one surgery in which made it worse. I was being pressured to retire under disability.... me! Retire at 28 and I could never be a police officer again! I came across doc’s Facebook page at 3am desperately looking for help. Doc and the entire staff are just amazing!! Since my injury to now I’m at 570 miles RUNNING. I went back due to needing a check up since running so much! Doc went over every concern I had and even had me measured for orthotics to wear when running to help even more! Doc saved me I tell him all the time. I’ll make 10 years as an officer in August thanks to Doc for fixing me and giving me all the courage I needed to know I CAN DO THE IMPOSSIBLE!

I am so thankful that you became a Dr. & even more so took me on as a patient. I know I was not easy because of my PTSD. You always had a calming presence & reassured me; even answering 2 pages of questions a couple of weeks before surgery(gave me all the time I needed on multiple occasions). You allowed me to make decisions, never pushing anything on me, just educating & informing me on what you thought was best/would help. It was truly a Dr. patient team. Before 2/4/19 I had very little hope for my left ankle; which became your ankle till you released me from your care. It was a long & hard recovery, but your work was amazing. It took 10months of PT, but at the yr mark on Feb 4 my ankle feels better than it did before. You are a truly gifted surgeon who cares about his patients & his work. I love your sense of humor & your sailor ways. Thank you for being a rarity in the medical field. Kari his Pa is also great from holding my hand in the OR to seeing me to take care of a blister.

Loved his bedside manner and the way he spoke to my family. I had a complicated ankle fracture with fracture blisters. He made sure the blisters were healed before surgery. He explained the procedure and rehab process. Still doing great after 3 years
