We were visiting the area from out of state. Had a meniscus tear. So pleased with how quickly we got in and the wonderful care. An injection patched me up for the time being

The clinic got me in same day which was very important because my pain was excruciating. Dr McGarry clearly explained the problem with my shoulder and showed compassion in doing so. Two days later and his treatment plan is working. I have nothing but good to say at this point!

I first met with Dr. McGarry in late December with pain in the right knee. After exam and tests MRI of knee, Dr. McGarry determined I needed a total knee replacement. I had the replacement done on February 2nd 2021 with good results. I have had very little pain and going to PT 3 times a week. Surgery was very successful and I would highly recommend Dr. McGarry and if you are having a knee problem, make an appointment and he will solve your problem. He and his staff are excellent and very friendly.

First visit to Plano Orthopedic. On-line forms pre-visit saved a lot of time at check-in. All of the staff were very friendly. The doctor explained everything clearly, listened to what I had to say, and wasn’t rushed. Short wait times.

This the second time I’ve seen Dr McGarry as my former Dr here retired. Dr McGarry is very friendly, he reviews the X-rays they have taken before he comes in the room, let’s me explain what has occurred, he checks out what I’m having a problem with and then gives me the diagnosis. His staff is very efficient although they do switch around a bit which is kind of confusing. I have no problem going back to Dr McGarry and now my husband is going to him also.
