I wish there were more docors like this!!!
Doctor Garcia was was the primary care physician at Buckley East where my where my father was admitted for post hospital rehab.. She is unbelievably kind, compassionate, And went above and beyond and beyond to make sure that my dad but my dad received the care that he deserved and needed. She listens and was an advocate representing a patient she knew very little about making sure that his needs and individual medical plan was followed. Also intervening to bridge family ties in an emotionally challenging matter. Patient first!!!...Dr. Garcia saved my fathers life. Thank you...
