No issue with the dr. I only saw him once. But the staff is incredibly incompetent and couldn't care less about your needs. I wasted an afternoon because someone didn't make a note of my appointment. I'll be looking elsewhere.

Intially I was filled with anxiety and apprension. My experience with the staff was very pleasant which helped ease it all. Dr. Garoutte is a true professional. His bedside manner is unrivaled in my experience.
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Garoutte is a faboulous doctor and person. The person part is so important when there is an elderly patient involved. They require patience and understanding and reassurance. Dr. Garoutte has all of this and more. I would recommend him to anyone.
