Baltimore, MD |
The front office staff, office manager, and doctor are all lacking in professionalism and common courtesy. They are very rude and have a lack of regard for patients. Overall, an absolutely horrible office. I would advise if you are a woman looking for a warm and inviting office that will not add unnecessary stress to your life that you keep looking. Avoid at all costs!

Very bad Doctor, I almost lost my child because of her carelessness, I was in her office three hours before I went to emergency room I could have lost my daughter if I was late 10 minutes to hospital. When I was in her office she was in rush listening to my daughter' s heart beat heart rate was low but she did not care told me " do you have a boy or girl?" I told her girl I was surprised because I was her patient before I was pregnant. During my pregnancy I was going to all my appointment:(

My favorite. I've been a patient for 20+ years, staring in her Washington, DC office. She is an amazing doctor. She is friendly, thorough and answers questions in a way that is informative but not overly technical. She has delivered all four of my children.

The only reason I went to Dr. Garreau was bc it was the earliest appointment I could get but I won't be returning here. The doctor was extremely curt when I tried to explain the problems I was having. Also the day I had gone in I had to get a pelvic exam so she briefly left the room for me to take my pants off and she kept opening the door when I wasn't finished and when she finally came it she said sarcastically oh I didn't realize it takes so long to simply take your pants off. Like what??
Always willing to answer questions! Perfect dr to deliver a baby she kept the delivery room calm and kept complete control of all the nursing staff and she has a gentle quick hand!
