I had cataract surgery and was looking for a surgeon who had experience of thousands of cases. Dr Garrett used the new blameless laser for cataract surgery. He is the only one in our area who does so. Great experience!

I have been to Dr. Garrett several times and he is a very thorough doctor. He has done surgeries on several of my family members, as well. He is a very caring doctor. I have had very good experiences with him and his staff.

I recently went to Garrett eye center. We were early by half an hour (we live an hour away). Just after we arrived the doctor went to lunch. We didn't expect to be seen until time of our scheduled appointment. We were just watching tv waiting our turn when the receptionist comes out into the waiting room with the tv remote saying, I have to change this. I said, well that's rude, we were watching that, no response. He came back from lunch. Our appt took literally 10 min.
