The office staff/nurse responded the same day to a voice mail request for permission by Dr Garcia for orthopedic surgery following an earlier stent procedure. That permission was faxed to the orthopedic surgeons office the next day. His office nurse is exceptional ....giving excellent explanation for surgical procedure, follow-up care and answers to questions. etc. My family Doctor recommended Dr Garcia for cardiac care. I in turn would recommend him to family/friends.
