What People Say About Dr. Erich Garland, MD

My husband suffered a stroke two years ago. Dr Garland was immediately involved in his care ordering necessary tests to determine extent of brain damage he has followed up since making sure he got the necessary testing for any further damage or healing. He referred us to a brain core treatment which has helped him very much. Dr Garland is a very caring, thorough doctor and we would recommend him to anyone.

I have fought headaches for many years and Dr. Garland has been so wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field of work. The staff, especially at the front desk, were very kind and willing to help.

Excellent physician! There is a comfort in knowing he’s the only Neurologist that our local hospital has on staff and trusts to take care of not only his own patients but theirs as well. Very knowledgeable and caring doctor. Great staff.

I am very surprised by Dr. Garland’s average rating! I have seen Dr. Garland over quite a few years, and have found him to be highly professional and knowledgeable from the beginning; my trust in him has only grown over time. He listens well, asks questions, does thorough exams, orders tests when necessary, and pursues effective treatment. Dr. Garland is a committed and caring health care provider. (I have never had an URGENT appointment, but I have not found it difficult to get an appointment.)

I have loved being a patient of Dr. Garland. He takes time to listen and answer any questions I have had. He has been a life saver. He has helped me during a time that I was so scared, because other Doctors didn't know what was going on, they would just bounce me to someone else. He was the only Dr. that took the time to find out the cause.

I will not be going to this Dr. I have not even seen him yet and have been treated horribly by staff. I have never felt like I was a burden to anyone until I called and had a few questions. They couldn't be even be of a little help. It is not my privilege to see you. It should be your privilege to see me. Being in this kind of field, the office staff need more empathy. We are not numbers in your cattle herd.

Horribly unprofessional I called to make an appt fordaughter who is a student suffering the after effects of a severe concussion. I needed to know if the doctor could see me even though I was out of state. I was assured that it would be no problem. Unlike other doctor office and I have dealt with in Idaho. They asked me to call insurance, primary doctor etc and then after taking up so much time that I can't send her back to CA before school starts they called to cancel the appt. Now I'm stuck

Would not recommend Dr Garland for trigeminal neuralgia due to lack of knowledge. He just recommended pain killers. Doing my own research I went to UofU and had a 1/2 hour surgery that fixed the severe pain. Blackfoot staff and Dr Garland very slow to transfer records, did not care.

Very satisfied with the care that we receive from Dr. Garland and his office staff. They are very professional, courteous and friendly. We have been seeing Dr. Garland for the last several years with my son who suffers from migraines and he is very patient and has been so helpful in finding the correct medications that would help my son.

Disorganized, lacking personal skills, no follow up, untimely regarding records, poor front office staff. Treated my wife as if she did not exist. As a caveat to an otherwise poor experience, he seemed to know what he was talking about.

Dr. Garland has been wonderful in helping me deal with neurological issues brought on by mast cell disease. He is very easy to communicate with and listens to my concerns and answers my questions without hesitation. I would definitely recommend him.

I would recommend Dr. Garland. I was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome and while I was at the hospital he was very caring. He came to see me everyday and answered any questions I had in regards to my recovery and things I needed to do to get better. Friendly individual and I have nothing but good things to say about him. Once I got out of the hospital it took me 4 weeks to get an office visit. He was booked up. It may have been due to the time of the year as this was in November.
