I liked Dr. Garr the moment I met him. His calm and assurance that he could help me was a great relief after months of awful pain and other procedures. I highly recommend him to others.as he has brought me the relief I needed.

I had spinal fusion surgery with Dr. Garr September 2016. I met with him a couple of times before deciding on him as my doctor. He was very patient with me and took his time answering all my questions. The surgery went well and I am extremely happy with the results.
