    Simi Valley, CA |
    She seems friendly and patient at first, but that’s only as long as you don’t tell her anything that contradicts her expectations. I’ve kept to a low, infrequent dose of a drug she prescribed me because it’s causing me rare and worrying side effects, and it also quells my anxiety COMPLETELY—if anything it works too well, to the point where it interferes with my work—yet she still insists that I effectively quadruple my dose. She likes to space three months between my appointments. Is that safe?

    Very hard to get in touch with. "Never" get an actual person. Always have to leave a message. Does not get back with you in a timely manner. If she calls you back and you miss her call, you have to start over again. If you page her, she is may not be in her office when she returns your call, so she does not necessarily have the patient info in front of her. If you leave a message you should get a response by the end of the day. Felt very helpless and frustrated. Have since changed doctors

    I have been a patient of Dr. Garma's for 2.5 years. I find her to be outstanding. Her clarity is immediate and her perceptions spot on. It is true that until recently her staff left a lot to be desired however my recent experience has been first rate. Dr. Garma is very busy and for excellent reason. She also recommended an outstanding psychologist (Dr. Medvene) who has also helped me greatly. I am blessed she takes my HMO and I recommend her 100%.

    She's always late, at least 45 minutes. She just cancelled on me less than 24 hours before my appointment: a double-standard.

    Dr. Garma is a kind and caring physician and because of this, she is very busy. She does take her time with you even if she is busy. I did have trouble getting calls back previously when she was only in Northridge, but her staff at the Simi Valley office is excellent and that does not happen any longer.

    TERRIBLE! Unreliable and negligent with patients! No return call for 3 weeks and causing serious depression without any care.
