I saw Dr. Garrett again recently for a post op visit. Everything from presurgery, to the procedure, to post operative care, went swimmingly. Dr. Garrett and her staff (including her nurse Kathy) are top notch. Dr. Garrett is an extremely knowledgeable, skilled and kind physician, with sound clinical judgment and a compassionate, patient centered approach. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

I was referred to Dr. Garrett by another physical at Cornell and I couldn't be more pleased. Given the reason why I had to see her, she made me feel seen, heard and relevant. As a Black woman, I've been the victim of physicians unconscious bias so I've been weary being introduced to any new ones. I've had years of negligent care because of these biases but Dr. Garrett has never shown me anything but humanity and respect. All my doctors are at Cornell and deliberately all women. The standard of care from Dr. Garrett and her team is top notch and I'm grateful for her advocacy.
