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
Sorry to hear your review. Unfortunately, the cancellation of this appointment had nothing to do with our office and everything to do with your insurance denying authorization for your daughter to be seen in our office. Your plan is an HMO and would not allow the visit without a referral from your primary doctor which was never sent. We hope your daughter received the care she needed through a provider your insurance allowed.

I've been seeing Dr. Garland for about 10 years. Over this time he has been an exceptional doctor, and through trial amd error he has helped me be able to control my epilepsy.

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.

Dr. Garland has been treating me for years for migraines! He is amazing. He truly cares for his patients and their needs and is always so genuine in listening to my concerns. Clean office and very friendly staff.

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 found Dr. Garland to be informative. His explanations were understandable for a lay person, such as myself.

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.
