      I recently had a tendon released in my right wrist by Dr. Garrod and was not only completely satisfied with his professionalism and caring way, but his office staff and staff at the surgical facility was kind, caring and professional. I would and have recommended Dr. Garrod to many friends.

      I have known Dr.Garrod for many years.He is an excellent Orthopedic Hand Surgery physician and a fine human being.He is always concerned with his patients feelings.On a scale of 1 to 10 I have no problem in giving him an 11.Both of my hand surgeries with Dr.Garrod turned out with excellent results.
      in Delray Beach, FL |
      Dr. Garrod Performed a DRF surgery with insertion of a volar plate. For two months and continuing today I suffer from serious nerve and hand functioning issues, including serious atrophy.These are excruciating and debilitating in nature. He summarily dismissed me as his patient because I sought a second opinion. This arrogant dismissive attitude, while i suffered serious complications after the surgery, that he did not expect, was a mystery to me. I hope the damage is not irreparable.
      in Coral Springs, FL |

      in Boca Raton, FL |
      From my arrival to my departure the experience was excellent. I was admitted to the examination room five minuted before the time of my appointment after having completed appropriate questions. Dr. Garrod listened to the description of my symptoms; had X-Rays performed without need to repeat any of these. He returned to the examining room and confirmed the diagnosis; treated me and prescribed a splint which was fabricated on site. Post treatment directions were given and back to golf I go.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
