Turns out he is a better doctor than I previously thought. He is medically very good. Making the right decisions for my mom. His staff of nurses are amazing!

I am sorry to say that I found Dr. Garber not friendly and pushy in recommending some tests. In addition, in his arguments he was rather scaring using some facts that I later found not to be correct. It does not match my idea of what a doctor should be. Patients are humans, not just subjects for curing. I dropped this doctor, and very happy with another one. I cannot recommend Dr. Garber.

Dr. Garber is an excellent physician who listens to concerns, discusses options, explains the reasons behind treatment, answers questions and takes the time for his patients. He is knowledgeable, friendly and down to earth. A breath of fresh air.
