He was EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL over the course of a one-minute telemedicine call. He asked me about my diabetes numbers, I told him what they were, and he started screaming at me and interrupting me, questioning me and accusing me of lying to him. I asked him to please calm down and stop yelling. Then he hung up. The call was less than one minute long. I do not think he is mentally stable if he is treating patients this way. I had called telemedicine to get medication for shingles.

He answered an MD Live call, he was professional and candid. He prescribed what I needed and answered all my questions...

This guy answered an MD Live call and was less than professional in talking to me, listening to me and responding to me! I will not accept him as the MD Live Dr again! I would not recommend him at all!

Dr. Garwood answered my MDlive televisit and was able to help me quickly. I had strep and sent in pictures. He called in my antibiotic and gave me some helpful home remedies I’d never heard of. It was quick and easy.

Dr. Garwood responded on MDLive. He seemed gruff and more interested on chastising me and telling me what I was doing wrong. I simply called in because I wear dentures and at times have an issue with oral thrush. I typically call my dentist, but he has retired and did not wish to sit at Urgent Care for two hours for something simple. I was trying to tell him my dentist typically calls in 4 pills and that takes care of the issue, but gave up. I will make sure not to get him again.

This doctor responded to a MDLive request I had. Not impressed at all with the guy. Had a bruise around a tick bite and every other time I had it, it was a simple prescription of antibiotics. This guy wanted me to get a bunch of expensive blood tests and arthritis tests and go to an urgent care facility. Also asked the same questions several times. I would not chose this doctor in the future.
