I thank Dr. Garth Phibbs. I am here today because of him. He saved my life. With his wisdom I'm 16 years Ovarian Cancer free. His staff was amazing. He has one of the best bedside manner's I have experienced. He was welcoming, reassuring. I was young and scared he took that fear away from me.

Dr. Phibbs performed my surgery and is the BEST gynecological surgeon in Toledo, OH. In fact, my husband is a gynecologist and has worked with Dr. Phibbs recommending him to his patients who have problems that are more complicated. If you want a physician who is the best in his field, I suggest you get an appointment with him. His patient base also is proof of his outstanding service to his patients. He is very busy but always makes time to see a patient who needs his expert care.
