A quick 3rd visit for my pregnancy. They took me in immediately and although they were short staffed, I was still out within 35 minutes.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Garofalo for close to 30 years. I have the upmost confidence in his ability. He’s always very thorough and his nursing staff is excellent. He delivered my two daughters via C-section. I feel he’s a very skilled, knowledgeable and competent doctor.

Dr garofolo and his staff are amazing, extremely caring, friendly, and very thorough in making sure you are well taken care of. I have felt so comfortable with this office from day 1 and even travel about an hour to see this doctor. I recently had a laparoscopic myomectomy to remove a large fibroid by Dr Garofolo and the whole experience was very pleasant! Especially because all other doctors told me they couldn't perform a minimally invasive surgery on such a large fibroid. Highly recommend!

The first thing that Dr. Garofalo said to me as he entered the room was, "You don't need a Pap smear". The point was that my age group didn't really need to have a Pap smear any more. I had not had one for a few years whereas in the past I had had one every year. After a conversation he left the room and I began to dress. Upon rentering the room he asked why I was dressing and I replied that he said that I did not need a Pap smear. Well, as long as I was there....More obnoxious comments fol
