Our time with Dr. Garges was the worst, most unprofessional doctor's visit I have ever had. Dr Garges was arrogant and unprofessional. We wanted to discuss conservative measures, but he dismissed them without a thought. He told us his opinion about My wife's MRI, but we don't want his opinion, we want his analysis and unclouded assessment. He told us we could only have surgery. My wife has VERY significant complicating factors, and he was so arrogant that he didn't bother to say whether he had experience in such cases or not. I would not refer my worst enemy to this man. I only give a "1" because a negative rating is not allowed.

Office staff is horribly untrained uncourteous and unprofessional which caused a strain on patient/doctor relationship. Ultimately went with another surgeon. Dr Garges was good at explaining my condition and treatment. He made me feel positive about my recovery but ultimately I did not have faith in his staff to provide the aftercare and administrative side of things which is a big deal to someone who plans to go thru surgery and recovery peacefully.

Dr. Garges is wonderful. He doesn't mouth platitudes or give pat answers, he's a straight shooter, tells you this is the problem this is how we're going to fix it and if can't be fixed he tells you why. His office wait times can be long but I'd rather wait for the best than be in and out with a quack.

Dr Garges is the only doctor that I went too who game me hope of living a more pain free life. He game no false hopes, Instead he told me that though he could help me but gave me no promises of false hopes. Dr Garges not only help me by my surgery but he also set up a protocol of my physical therapy to help continue to regain almost all ROM that i had lost in the last 35 years. God Bless him and his staff.

Dr Garges always explained what the issues were including showing those issues on MRI answering an and all questions. He also gave the percentage of average relief the surgery would give. If you were shying away from surgery he would give alternatives such physical therapy. I never felt pressured by him to have the surgery.

Dr. Garges is the most compassionate and professional doctor I've ever dealt with. When you need professional and direct medical advice without all the fluff Dr. Kim Garges is your man. He explains with exacting detail what you can expect from treatment at every step. You will leave his examination room with no questions concerning your treatment. Dr. Garges will put your x-ray and MRI results on the screen and explain to you what they have revealed to him. My surgery was flawless!
