Una doctora excelente, tuve la gran suerte de encontrarla ,su profesionalidad, trato y sobre todo su gran humanidad al paciente! !!!!
in Miami, Fl |
Dr. Garces is an amazing human being. Not only is she a great doctor, but is a doctor that really listens. Many times, one feels rushed and not taken serious. She is someone I hope to see forever.
in Miami, FL |
Dr Garces communicates well, is very thorough, caring, and clearly sharp as a tack. She must be well regarded because it's hard to get a new patient appointment, but well worth the wait.
in Miami, FL |
Respectful, careful listener, experienced and trustworthy. After meeting with a few rheumatologist she was the doctor I want to stay with.
in Miami, FL |
She is a very sweet and positive person, her optimism is contagious and you feel better when she explains everything to you! There's a solution for everything, so you smile and feel very good !!!

After waiting 2 months for the first appointment I could get, I then waited 1 hour after my appointment time. When I was told my wait would continue...I asked to reschedule. I was told the next available appt. would be in 2 months. There was no apology but instead was told I should be grateful they overbooked to get everyone in.
