Dr. McGarvey is very smart, as well as emotionally intelligent. She listens and empathizes. She is very understanding of the struggles of someone with Type 1 Diabetes, has worn all the electronics herself (CGMs & pumps with saline) and gets the challenges of the disease. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Did bunch of blood tests and a couple of results came back with abnormal range. It’s been almost a month and no follow up from her. I wasted time and money.
