Dr Garoutte is the best of the Best inCardiology. He is warm/friendly and a very good listener. He is quick to zone in a particular problem. He is an awesome doctor and my wife and I are extremely fortunate to have him. His staff is friendly and always helpful which reflects on his great leadership. Awesome heart doctor.

Dr. Garoutte is an excellent, personable physician who is totally competent, comprehensive and compassionate. His support staff is genuine, not fake or superficial. They care just as much as the good doctor. He is very thorough and all his examinations leave "no stone unturned." When they first did the sonogram on my carotid arteries and found that the right artery was 95% restricted, he scheduled me right away for surgery. I could have had a massive stroke but he saved my life.

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.

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.
