I was 100% grateful and 110% pleased with the service Dr, Garber and his office provided. Excellent restorative work. Also noteworthy is the analog service: a real person answers the phone and there are no voice prompts. What a joy.

Dr. Garber is an excellent retinal eye surgeon. He also does an amazing job of explaining what to expect. He helps you feel less anxious. He performed my 2nd eye vitrectomy and I am doing well.

Very personable. He carefully explained what he was going to do and what he was doing, during the procedure. Even though I wasn’t quite sure, what was happening, it felt comforting that he was quick and deliberate.

Dr Garber does a very thorough eye exam. He records everything in his notes. He explains in great detail the prognosis and action plan for the future. He is very friendly and I highly recommend him for any eye specialty need.

I am undergoing injections for diabetic retinopathy and Dr. Garber has been very good. He is quite nice, answers all my questions, and from what I understand, the best in the business. His injections are relatively painless and his "bedside manner" is both professional and calming.
