We highly recommend Dr. Garvey. My husband had an open vascular ulser leg wound for seven years. None of the vascular surgeons we consulted could accomplish a cure. Then, we found Dr, Julius Garvey who prescribed the unna boot. Mr.Cook, Dr. Garvey's assistant, applied this medical bandage with great care and the wound was healed in a few months. Needless to say, we were stunned that no doctor had adviced this simple uninvasive method. A. Paes

He is the son of the legendary Marcus Garvey. But besides that he is a brilliant doctor, thoughtful and attentive.

I would not recommend Dr. Garvey. I had vein surgery with him that was suppose to last forever and it failed after 5 years. He then said that this sometimes happens. I had the surgery again. he wrapped my leg in a thigh length stocking, and then he wrapped an ace bandage around the ankle portion of the stocking. I was in pain and called. He said the ace bandage acted like a tourniquet. I developed ULCERS around my ankle and the VEIN DID NOT SEAL PROPERLY!!. Need surgery again! Find another doc!!
