Meniscus repair
One knee now none on bone, the others had a meniscus tear that has been bothering me for months. Woke me up nearly every night. Went from taking 3 mile walks several time a week to being unable to walk much more than a block. Dr McGarry made the meniscus repair two weeks ago, and I am already virtually pain free, am able to move freely and have a normal daily life. Even the few days after the surgery were quite comfortable. Dr McGarry is congenial, informative and very positive. When he came out of my surgery and gave my wife a report, she found him to be very helpful and encouraging. I could not be more pleased and will be scheduling a knee replacement with him after the holidays. I heartily recommend Dr McGarry to anyone who is having knee pain.

The best care!
I hurt my knee. In my mind, I was imagining a long road of painful surgery, etc. Dr. McGarry quickly put me at ease and offered a much more conservative approach to healing. He’s so kind and patient. He made it easy to understand what is wrong and how I can get well. I am so happy! His staff are also amazing. I highly recommend Dr McGarry.

Knees
At 80 years old with lots of Arthritis issues, I have seen Dr McGarry several times over the past 5-6 years for my Knees and Shoulders. He is always professionally friendly, takes time to listen, and thoroughly goes over Treatment Options. While I will never feel like I’m 40 again, the Treatments Dr McGarry has recommended fit my lifestyle at this point in my life, and my “Knee & Shoulder” Issues no longer control my Daily Routines! Working with Dr McGarry, also provides the additional support, as needed, from the entire “Team of Specialists” at Plano Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center!

Great Experience
This was one of the most thorough and precise appointments I have ever had. All of the staff had a job to do and they did it very timely. I didn’t have to wait for anything. Dr. McGarry was on time, and had my diagnosis, prognosis and a detailed plan of action for me. Excellent experience.

First visit with Dr Mc Garry.
His office is so organized, I’m impressed. There are many people helping me for my visit, but i didn’t have to wait long, they came right in after each service: the nurses, x-ray, technicians and Dr McGarry talked to me right to the point. I felt very comfortable and pleased.

Dr. McGarry is so knowledgeable and has the best bedside manner. His staff is awesome and gave me an appointment within three hours of calling to request one so I didn’t have to wait over the weekend. The entire staff treated me like royalty, and I highly recommend this practice.

Online pre-appointment paperwork is wonderful, but I had to complete it on my phone, as it would not work from my Win10 laptop connected to the internet via Ethernet cable. Dr McGarry provided excellent descriptions of surgery options, procedures, and risks.
