I had a large torn rotator cuff. Dr. McGarry and his entire team were fantastic from our initial visit, the surgery itself and the after care visits. Dr. McGarry is thorough in his explanations of what will happen and his answering of all questions I had after the surgery. I would happily recommend him.

Very professional and takes time to listen to what has occurred. Could not have asked for a better surgeon to do my rotator cuff surgery. This doctor has a great staff and his assistant Kelsey is very helpful. Overall you could not find a better team to get you through a injury. This practice is very well run.

Prior to my shoulder surgery I was a little nervous because I didn’t know Dr. McGarry that well. My physical therapist assured me that I was in good hands—he was right. Not only is Dr. McGarry an awesome doctor, he is surrounded by a great team (Kelsey, Brian) and office staff. They were/are knowledgeable, yet attentive and caring. I highly recommend Dr. McGarry and his team.

I have been a patient of Plano Orthopedic for a number of years. I am new to Dr. McGarry. My doctor, Dr. Barber retired this year. There were about four physicians who specialized in knee injuries. I selected Dr McGarry because of his education, experience, and his belief in using minimally invasive procedures.

I tore my quad tendon back in March 2019, and as soon as i walked into the dr's office, I immediately trusted Dr McGarry. He was very diligent with getting me back under the bar. I am a year post op now and am having no problems. Amazing surgeon and person he is!
