Dr. Garwacki has been my MS Neurologist for 8+ years. He is the TOP MS Neurologist around and any MS Patient would be lucky to have him as their Neurologist! He is very knowledgeable and always has an answer to my questions. Very patient and kind. He will be very missed when he finally retires.

Dr. Garwacki is by far the best MS doctor I've had (5 before him) . His knowledge is incredible. He's had the answer to every question I've had in 12+ years without hesitation (unless to hear me out). Only hope he never retires for the sake of his patients. Impossible act to follow I think.
