New York, NY |
Dr. Garbus is a wonderful doctor. His congenial personality and easy going ways go a long way to easing a patient’s stress. He thoroughly explains everything. The main issue is that both times I’ve been here I’ve waited over an hour. This is unacceptable. My appointment shouldn’t be 2 hours including meeting with the doctor!!!!

Dr Garbus is a life saver. After going to a Rectal surgeon who told me he had no clue what was wrong & I just had to learn to live this way I went to Dr Garbus for a 2nd opinion. What the other surgeon couldn't figure out Dr Garbus had me diagnosed (granted I had a lot of things wrong with me) in a 10 minute exam. He was dead on with everything (we had to get tests back ) all were right on. I've had the surgery to fix everything & I'm finally getting my life back thanks to Dr Garbus

Dr Garbus did not give me proper care. Did not give wound care instructions resulting in complications. Did not have appointment for me when I needed to come in for follow up when wound became worse. After repeated calls to office finally called back after 2 days. Horrible experience. This dr was already sued for neglect, do your research!!!!

Dr. Garbus is absolutely wonderful. Considering the sensitive nature regarding colorectal issues, you want a doctor who you can trust. Dr. Garbus listens to your concerns patiently, and always leaves you with a smile.

He was able to resolve a problem (abscess) via use of heavy antibioitcs several years ago, which I give any surgeon huge credit for. However, he didn't seem too interested in follow up. Nor did he take the time to call with results of recent MRI reports which were ordered after new symptoms surfaced. We waited for a week. He had a young lady make the call, despite the fact that my wife had called the office manager to express concern about the delay.

Dr Harbus is amazing ! I'm post op 3 weeks I had a hysterectomy in Jan of 2016 as fine passed I developed scar tissue in my bowel area . I was so sick for 8 months than I was advised by my urogyno to see him . He is amazing , he did surgery on me , he released the scar tissue I went home the same day . I feel like a new person , he took great precautions with my surgery I'm So thankful . I recommend him highly , as well as all the specialist associates .
