I called Dr. Garza because I had not been feeling well for the past month. I got a tele health appt the next day. He called, listened to my issues and I was scheduled for an EGD and colonoscopy within the week. As always, Dr. Garza is empathetic and understanding and listens to your issues your concerned about. Very professional and caring.

Dr. Garza is a very thorough doctor; explains everything ahead of the procedure and visits with you after the procedure is complete. The attending staff are polite, knowledgeable and most attentive. The office is immaculate and very sanitary in every possible way. I would highly recommend Dr. Garza.
