The doctor ordered several tests to provide complete diagnosis of my issues. He explained my problems and how he proposed to correct them with surgery. The type of surgery ACDF was well explained to me. This ACDF surgery was the easiest to recover from for me. There was little to no post-surgery pain. The results of my surgery were very good. Post- Surgery x-ray confirmed the positive out come. I would recommend Dr. Garges for this type of surgery to anyone.

Dr. Garges and staff are helpful, kind and compassionate. So much so that I referred my 81 year old mother to him as well. He truly cares for his patients, listens to them and does not rush you. You may have a bit of a wait, but we’ll worth it.

I had several appointments with Dr. Garges and I ended up leaving after he cost me thousands of $$$$ and a surgery which made things worse. His diagnoses proved to be incorrect and after all the time and money spent on imaging, doctor visits, surgery, physical therapy, and pain management it was clear he did not have an answer for my condition. My surgery caused me way more pain and visit after visit it was clear he didn't have an answer. I had a surgery resulting in further pain & disability. I do not recommend Dr. Garges and his staff is rude & uncaring. When he couldn't figure out my condition after all of his treatment options, I was simply ignored. He would not recommend me to another spine doctor and I had to go out on my own and find one. I highly recommend NOT using Dr. Garges and take time to find a leading spine doctor who has the patient as their priority. It was a hassle to get my medical records and the wait times at the appointment are extremely long.

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.
