Every visit went smoothly and the outcome worked very well in every situation. I could not be more pleased. All staff personnel I came in contact with were always pleasant and competent. Wait time was consistently brief, making the visits concise. Love it.

Had surgery at memorial in Tampa. Out of hospital in 28 hrs. Off of walker 1 week! Never used a cane! The most spectacular outcome from a surgery ever! He is very skillful at what he does and I have recommended him to many people. He is honestly the BEST, and no, I am not his mom!

Dr Garlick didnt send fluid to the lab he removed from my knee and because of this my other Dr lacked information about my knee. I also saw him in June 2020 for broken leg and he didnt tell me a potential blood clot and subsequent Pulmonary Embolism from my leg to my lung could occur and did. I could have died as these can both be fatal. A very basic thing an Orthopedic Doctor should tell a patient but Dr Garlick failed to do it. I'm lucky to be alive no thanks to him. And i missed an opportunity to appeal insurance decision to have acid shots in my knees because of his poorly qualified secretary and staff. Would not see him again because of his unprofessional attitude, demeanor and failure as a Doctor. I recommend finding someone else if you value your life. The bare minimum one should expect from their physician is to be talked to respectfully and told basic life saving information. I would not want a Dr who cant do that to operate on me.

Dr. Garlick performed a partial knee replacement on my left knee last year. I can’t say enough good things about him. The surgery was a success and a life changer for me. I highly recommend Dr. Garlick and all of his staff.

When I viewed the doctors profiles on the FOI website and Dr. Garlick said his focus/interest was on the knee, I decided to schedule an appointment with him. I had a total knee replacement in July 2019 & would highly recommend him. His nurse Stephanie, assistant Caitlin & PA Elizabeth make a great team.

Excellent care, had a partial rt knee replacement, I am 5 weeks post surgery and my knee has not felt this good in 10+years. The care I received at each visit was great the entire staff from check-in to seeing the Dr. special kudos to Dr Garlick, Elizabeth, and Caitlin all made me feel like a real person versus just a number

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 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.

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!
