I went to Dr Garry trusting my physicians referral for a hernia surgery. Dr Garry evaluated me for less than 5 minutes before telling me he didn’t know what was wrong. I trusted him and didn’t get a second opinion. It’s now 5 years later and I very seriously need the surgery. I was again referred to him. I’ve told my physician to please no longer refer patients to him. I simply don’t trust him.

I went to the ER with severe abdominal pain and was told I needed an appendectomy. I was on blood thinners from a procedure I’d underwent two weeks earlier so I was admitted but needed to wait until my blood counts were in a safe range before I could have surgery. Dr Gary was so great to me during my stay. He checked in on me often, answered all of my questions and took time to make sure my concerns were addressed before surgery. He was a good sport to listen to all of my sarcasm and me trying to be funny while using humor as a coping mechanism as well. My surgery and recovery went very well! I was pretty darn lucky to have had Dr Garry as my surgeon and feel like he genuinely doesn’t want anyone to have to go through a surgery unless circumstances absolutely necessitate. I would recommend him.

I came to Dr. Garry with a very rare, large tumor in my adrenal gland that needed to be surgically removed. It was a difficult operation in a tricky place, but Dr. Garry and his team did a fantastic job. He's been thorough, caring, and not afraid to spend time answering my questions and concerns. He's been an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Twenty years ago I had hernia repair on my right side while living in Newport Beach CA.  That surgery went well and I hoped to have a similar experience this time with my left side hernia.  However, Dr. Garry made this experience even better.  His facilities at Utah Surgical Associates are first class. The entire staff was very professional, courteous, and very helpful. My contact was Bailey, she was fantastic. She answered all my questions and put me at ease.

Dr Garry is my angel here on earth. He saved my life in 2014 with his expertise and when I was rushed to the emergency room in need of another unrelated surgery less than a year ago, he was the surgeon that walked through the door and saved me again. He is the kindest, calmest, most caring doctor I've ever met. His expertise is tops in the field, but above all, I consider him a dear friend and "My Angel"! I recommend David Garry for any surgery one might need. Thank you Doctor D...you're the best!!!

Dr Garry throughly went over my options and the risks involved. He went over stuff I wouldn’t have even thought to ask. He was very kind and never made me feel rushed. His nurse Dani was helpful with answering questions I had after surgery. The surgery went great. I would certainly recommend Dr Garry to my friends and family.

I was so lucky to be referred to Dr. Garry for my surgery. He is wonderful. Dr. Garry makes you feel so comfortable in his office while discussing issues. He explains everything that you need to know and answers all of your questions. His skills are of the highest quality. He has a quiet humility about him, which is so redeeming when it comes to a physician. I felt as though my care was important to him, and that he made sure all bases were covered. I would recommend him to everyone.
