What People Say About Dr. Lovegildo Garcia Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I saw this doctor for many years and I should have gotten another doctor long ago. He kept me on overpowering meds to where I couldn’t function. He wouldn’t put me on newer drugs or suggest other treatments. He led me to believe that there wS no hope for me. The wait in his waiting room was always 2-6 hours. I am now seeing a much better doctor.

He was friendly but not very helpful didn't let me finish answering questions before interrupting and didn't offer any treatment options. I waited 1hour 45 minutes in the waiting room before being called back then another 15-20 in the exam room before seeing the provider. The walls are thin and you can hear the other patients interactions with the provider.

The only reason for the long wait time here is that Dr Garcia spends time with his patients, listening to the patient and thoroughly explaining the issues that you may find yourself facing. I respect that. I challenge you to find that elsewhere. Recommend him to family and friends.

Seeing how there are no services provided at Ft. Knox have no other choice but to be referred. I understand doctor seeing their patience but to be NOT seen by doctor after 1:45 -2:00 is truly unacceptable (arrived at11:15 and asked for co-pay at 1:17) dr still had not made to see me. To add insult nurse or admin assistant tells me "she will call my next appointment tell them I'm going to be late as it's better coming from another doctor office"...really refund my co-pay. Never again RIDICULOUS.

I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. He was inconsiderate to me and my medical issues presented to him. He was uncaring towards side effects brought by meds he prescribed and was unproffesional during his check in on me during a hospital stay.
