If you want to feel you are in good hands when your body is feeling like a broken bird, this is the doctor to go to. Dr. Garlick has a great bedside manner with all his patients. He will take the time to understand your problem or injury. I have gone to him for my knees; as well as a shoulder injury. I have found relief in both areas of my body with Dr G. recommendations and treatments. As we age, our mind is young, but the body starts showing something different otherwise. Dr. Garlick is superb and I feel confident that I will get better in his care. Also his staff is wonderful and friendly. 5 star rating.

I had a partial knee replacement a year ago. I can not say enough about the care and compassion of Dr. Garlick and his staff. I can honestly say that he gave my life back to me. I was in so much pain I didn't want to do anything. Now, a year later, I am doing great.

Dr. Garlick has treated my advanced osteoarthritis in both knees for several years, mainly with shots. He recently performed a total knee replacement on my9 left knee, which as is normal, is still in treatment through physical therapy to adopt to the implant. After one month, the repaired left knee is already functioning to the extent that I can walk fairly normally and returned to basic activities. Surgery went very well, and pain management was effective.

Dr. Garlick is without peer. I’ve had other orthopedic surgeries & physicians, none of which come close to his knowledge, individualized treatment and procedures. I would recommend that friends/family (outside of Florida) travel here to Tampa for a knee replacement. Not that I want to do my other knee, but if I needed to, Dr. Garlick is the only surgeon I would even consider.

I was told 7 Yrs ago I was a candidate for a new knee. I had Cortisone injection that enabled me to function for just under 5 Yrs. After the second injection Dr. Garlick and Elizabeth were surprised that I did not ask for a knee replacement. I waited because I though I might never have to have it replaced. I was doing fewer and fewer activities. The pain persisted. Dr Garlick replaced my knee. Now I wish I had had the Knee joint replace earlier. Dr Garlick answered all my questions.

From the Office staff to Dr Garlick, I cannot tell you how nice and caring these people are. I had both my knees replaced by Dr Garlick . The first one I had done in October and the second one a week before Xmas and I am out and about doing my normal everyday things. He is the best, he listens, gives you his opinions, and if he had too I am sure he could perform the surgery in his sleep . From Kaleigh, Kaitlyn, Elizabeth to DR Garlick I thank you all for taking good care of me .

Dr. Garlick replaced my left knee 12-12-2018 at Memorial Hospital. I could not be happier with the outcome of this procedure. Prior to surgery Dr. Garlick ordered numerous test to insure I was ready for surgery. I was apprehensive about staying overnight at the hospital, however that experience was amazing. Private room and an attentive nursing staff made me comfortable and exceeded my expectations. I will have my right knee replaced in early spring knowing that I will be well taken care of.

Outstanding doctor. Kept me informed throughout the entire journey of getting my knee replaced. The surgery went off like clock work. Dr. Garlick and his staff were the epitome of how a true caring professional should work and act. Absolutely no doubt in my mind, I would choose Dr. Garlick again!

Dr, Garlick is hands-down one of the best Orthopedic doctors in the Bay area. He doesn't come across egotistical as many confident doctors do. I have had the greatest experience with him & staff from the diagnose of my knee problems to the partial replacement that he performed in 2016. I recently come to see him again through a work related injury to my knee. He was able to immediately tell me what the exact damage was & the time it would take to heal. He was spot on & now I am back to normal.

Dr. Garlick and his staff was very professional, down to earth and easy to talk to. He answered all my questions and made me feel at ease about my surgery. He did an excellent job repairing my patella tendon. I highly recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery. He is the BEST at what he does. I am grateful that I had him as my doctor.

Dr. Garlic worked with me over the past five years with my left knee deterioration and arthritis issues. He did not want to rush me into knee replacement surgery but we both agreed that point would come in the future. Dr. Garlic always told me I would know when the time comes and it did this past summer. I had my knee replacement on 8/22 and my results have been fantastic. The rehab and recovery that Florida Ortho had in placed worked extremely well. My life has improved dramatically!!

My wife and I give Dr Garlick, staff and PT team TEN stars. Five isn’t enough. From our very first appt with Dr Garlick and his staff, my wife and I felt confident in his diagnosis and frankness in recommending no choice but total knee replacement. I explained I was a tennis teaching pro, he said he was a tennis player who had successfully performed many knee replacements with players and pros. With his professionalism and surgical expertise, my total knee replacement was a a total success!

Without reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Garlick for resolving knee issues. He's professional, personable, and focuses on ferreting out and solving the root cause of the problem with minimal invasion. I've had a partial replacement in each knee over the past two years and both went smoothly and were successful. Following his advice and instructions helped me recover quickly and I was back to my normal daily routine in minimal time. His staff is friendly, professional and accommodating.

I had total right knee replacement surgery with Dr. Garlick September 10, 2018. He is huge on preventative measures. Even my pharmacist, was impressed when he ordered medications, for just in case of symptoms. I highly recommend Dr. Garlick at Florida Orthopedic. I am so glad, I finally had this surgery. I am on the other side of healing and doing great. He is very concerned for his patients... I had tried the injections, but they did not work. Surgery was my last option.

Dr . Garlick replaced my knee in February. He did a good job on the actual surgery, but I developed significant scar tissue, probably b/c of how I heal, but also Dr. Garlick discharging me w/o PT orders. After my two week follow-up, he ordered PT. I started PT but only got to 65 deg ROM. Dr. Garlick only offered a total revision to fix the problem. I went to a doc in Jax who did a manipulation under anesthesia, which is non-invasive. I am at 130 deg now. Will not recommend Garlick or FOI.

Dr. Garlick is the best; he has earned very high regard in the medical community in Tampa Bay. I have been his patient for over 2 years and based on the information he provided, the evidence from X-rays and MRIs, it was clear that is was time for a partial right knee replacement . I had this surgery on 4/23/18, followed his protocol for pre/post op procedure, and at 6 weeks' recovery, I feel quite good, exercising faithfully, and getting back to normal. I recommend Dr. G without reservation!
