I am SO HAPPY I found Dr Garcia to repair my umbilical hernia! He has a great bedside manner-very calming and knowledgeable- and took the time to answer all of my questions. I never felt rushed. Post surgery I had some minor soreness (really very minor), and one day later I feel fine. I'm totally amazed. I most highly recommend, (and I have very high expectations). If I could give more stars, I would.

I had Dr. Garcha perform an inguinal hernia patch procedure on me in 2015. He used a bio glue to set it which I was more comfortable with. He was very patient, kind, and comforting from the first time I walked into his office to the day of the surgery. I was able to get back to playing competitive soccer and working out a few weeks after and the patch is still holding up today. I highly recommend him for hernia repairs.

When choosing a surgeon, it goes without saying you want him or her to be brilliant and exceptional at what they do. To me it was equally as important to find someone who was personable, relatable and wouldn't make me feel stupid for asking simple questions. Several friends referred me to Dr. Garcha and I wasn't disappointed. He patiently answered all my questions, however silly they were, and had zero complications after surgery. He did an amazing job and I can't recommend him enough!

I had surgery three years ago and literally almost died. Induced coma for 2 weeks and all. Ended up having Dr. Garcha come in and do another surgery and literally he saved my life. I can't say enough good things about this Doctor. Matter of fact hopefully he is about to do another surgery on me. There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how much trust and faith I have in this Doctor. Will NEVER go anywhere else.

Dr Garcha did a great job repairing my larger-than-average hernia with laparoscopic surgery . Very little pain & soreness and healed up great. He is very polite and caring. He explained what will happen and followed up with me. His staff and PA are also very nice to work with.
