Dr. Garst cared for my grandfather in Wilmington NC when he was diagnosed with metastatic cancer. She was the most caring doctor. We never felt rushed when asking her questions. She was so down to earth and her smile lights up the room. Dr. Garst is one of the finest examples of a Physician I have ever encountered. Duke is now a much better place for having her as a member of their staff! You will be in excellent hands if you choose Dr. Garst as your oncologist!!!!
