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.

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.
