I had an amazing experience at the Summit Medical Group. Dr Garberina took great care to help me with two trigger fingers. I had it done today and I'm already seeing great results. I wouldn't hesitate to go back for another procedure. Totally professional and efficient!

I had total reverse shoulder replacement last Monday and 1 1/2 weeks had my post OP visit and extremely suprised how much mobility I have in my arm. The pain level is way down and now I am on just tylenol every 10 hrs. I highly recommend Dr Garbarino if you are considering shoulder surgery! Excellent Doctor and a Veteran! Anthanasi Tsivgas

Dr. Garberina is an excellent orthopedic doctor. He performed a very complicated surgery on my shoulder and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. He has great bedside manners and very friendly. Highly recommend him for anyone with a shoulder problem.

How can I fit all the wonderful reports I have about Dr. Garberina and his staff? Scheduling was simple,Pre-op was made easy, info was given before I knew what to ask, Dr was “present” and clear at every visit, ALL the hospital nurses were fans of him and his skill, post op has been supportive and follows a clear, logical plan. I had a total shoulder replacement— not a common surgery. This Dr and his staff are very impressive— and I’m an RN, not easily impressed!

I 100% recommend Dr. Garberina to EVERY person I have talked to since I started going to him. I had extreme shoulder pain for over 8 years and saw more doctors than I can count. No one could find anything on any tests. In one visit, Dr Garberina listed to everything, never once doubting or discrediting me, found the tear in my labrum and had me scheduled for surgery within 2 weeks. The procedure and follows ups were so smooth and he was wonderfully supportive as well as his staff. Thank you!

Dr. Garberina repaired my rotator cuff after another surgeon made a major mistake in the initial repair. Dr. Garberina is respectful, talented and genuine. I felt comfortable from my initial meeting with him and would (and have) recommend him highly to anyone needing shoulder repairs. He cares a lot about his patients and doing the best he can to alleviate pain.

unfortunate to slip on ice and shatter my shoulder. I was lucky to be referred to DR. Garbarina, he was very thorough in diagnosing my issues and explaining them to me. He set my expecteations concerning the arthroscopic surgery and physical therapy. Any and all questions or concerns were addressed at once. I am 6 months post surgery and know I choose the proper surgeon. Shoulder is healing nicely & continued psychical therapy and home stretches improving every day.

Dr. Garberina was my husband's doctor first. He was then recommended by my internist for shoulder problems. I was told he was an expert on this. From the first visit to the last (I was just discharged), Dr. Garberina's professionalism was excellent. His knowledge of my injury, the steps he took before an operation and the post-op visits were all aligned with exactly what he said. I will not hesitate to recommend him. He also has a good sense of humor, that's an added touch.

Dr. Garberina was awesome. I was suffering from bone spurs and bad arthritis in my shoulder. He went in, cleaned everything up and I'm better than before. Love him and his office staff!

Dr Garberina has performed tend repair surgery on my wife (hand) and myself (elbow) with great success. I would definitely use him in the future should the need arise (hopefully not !) and would recommend him to anyone with hand, elbow, or shoulder issues.

Very successful shoulder surgeries on both shoulders with Dr. Garberina. Last one a complete complicated rebuild. Back to swimming pain free and as fast as before. Incredible follow through with detailed instructions to my physical therapist as I progressed. Great surgeon, great person.

After two unsuccessful surgeries to re-attach a triceps tendon, I was referred to Dr. Garberina. His insight and surgical skill produced a result I could not be happier with; pain free and 100% mobility. I highly recommend Dr. Garberina.

Fantastic experience. No long wait to see the doctor, concise diagnosis, X-ray taken on site to confirm, no surgery option to treat, easy follow up. Would recommend to anyone!
