This doctor does not communicate well. He had very little information to tell me about the surgery he wanted to perform, therefore I wouldn't let him cut me. Terrible bedside manner.

Dr. Garlovsky gave me a second opinion which was very well founded and I feel saved me from serious side effects regarding my prostate cancer. More importantly from blood test results he recognized my high white blood count which no other hemotologist ever suggested treatment and no doubt saved me from a stroke and possible death. Yes, he is an extrovert and the previous evaluation was extremely negative but as a specialist he is the most knowledgeable I have ever encountered in 25 years!

I would never recommend Dr. Garlovsky to anyone that I cared about, in fact, I would highly discourage them from seeing him/encourage them to schedule with another provider. He was extremely rude, dismissed my concerns, talked over my questions and answers, had no regard for my feelings, and acted terribly unprofessionally. He made light of my condition and was extremely insensitive. Terrible experience, worst I have ever had with a health care "professional."
