Not my best MD experience
I had a few procedures with Dr. Garrett. The consequences of each one of them was downplayed while discussing them. I never felt like my input on the way my body feels was fully taken into account. I wish I chose another MD to treat me, but while I can’t change my past, I can make better choices in the future, so I made a decision to look for another specialist to treat me after our last encounter.

Dr.Garrett is a kind doctor.She found out that I did not have a condition a peer said I had. but unfortunately,I feel as if she was torn between siding with her peer,and taking my word for what I know about my condition.I truly believe she really wants to do the right thing by me but sometomes,office politics.She does have a great demeanor but it's too early to.know where she really stands!

Highly Competent & Efficient
I chose Dr Garrett years ago as a first-time mother with unpleasant pregnancy complications. Candidly, I liked her pedigree - and loved she was a female and mother herself (who better to empathize). She is direct, competent and very efficient in diagnosing and treating issues. I’ve seen her several times I’ve the years - and would recommend her to a friend (if they asked for such a recommendation! Lol).
