Dr. Garr is the best dermatologist I have experienced in my 79 years. She is thorough, caring and keeps the patient informed on findings. She has an outstanding "bedside manner" and truly cares about her patients.

Dr Gaar never appears rushed, yet she is always thorough and completely focused on finding our "questionable" areas. She has such a pleasant personality, we do not mind the process of removing our risky spots.

While Dr Gaar addressed all my concerns, I have never felt more rushed in a doctors visit. She spoke very fast and had it been my first time at a dermatologist I might have been confused.

Scheduled my annual check up as a new patient with Dr. Lanai Gaar. From the scheduling, to seeing Dr Gaar, I wouldn't change anything! She was very professional, kind, informative, and really took her time to discuss my skin condition with me. I have been seeking a dermatologist not only for myself, but also for my family. We have hit a home run with Dr. Gaar! Thanks again to Dr. Gaar and staff for your professionalism and care. Very impressed!

Dr Gaar was knowledgeable and attentive. She explained what she found and explained the procedure to excise the spot. She probably spent too much time with me bc I asked a lot of questions which she gladly answered. I appreciate her knowledge and her professional bedside manner. I have found my Dermatologist!

Had a follow-up visit at Coastal Dermatology, Punta Gorda, FL on 4/17/17. The visit was with Dr. Laini Gaar. What a wonderful, knowledgeable, and most pleasant Doctor. She explained the results of my biopsy thoughroughly and answered all my questions. My wife was so impressed with her knowledge and overall demeanor that she has made an appointment to see her within a few weeks! We both would recommend her to anybody searching for a great Dermatologist in the Punta Gorda - Port Charlotte area!
