Very kind and caring. He listens and will examine you and then he will either recommend further testing or prescribe medication, if he knows what it is, that is wrong with you. He always does follow-ups to check and see how you are doing.

I went to see Dr. Garza for a severe migraine while traveling to Corpus Christi for work. I didn't have a choice, he was the closest to my hotel, but I was happy to have found him. He was competent, kind, understood my concerns, asked me about my medical history, and called my doctor in NJ to verify which dosage has worked best for me in the past. Followed up with me that same evening and the morning after and suggested to either come in for a quick blood pressure reading (chronic migraines tend to raise your BP) or to stop at any pharmacy or grocery store to verify it was still under control. Thank you for taking the time to do a job well done!

You cannot talk to anyone in the office if you call. They do not call back. He was friendly but seemed uninterested. Rushed through my "examination" with no interest in my issues. Said for me to come back in a month so he can refer me to a specialist. I don't understand the long wait considering his rush job in the room. But again, don't call the office and expect anyone to answer or even call you back. Voicemail every time with no response.

Had to find new doctor. signed up with Dr Garza. He didn't exam me. looked at lab report, called in refills for meds. and said do lab in 6 months and make appt for 6 months. Lady at window was very rude. said didn't have time to tell when i come back. She would mail that information to me. took over a week to receive the letter with next appt date. to reach them by phone have to leave message and they take up to 3 days to return your call.
