Dr. Garcia took time to properly diagnose and explain all options fully. She was friendly and professional and is very skilled at giving injections to the joints that are nearly painless. Excellent care provider and bedside manner.

I’m elated to have Dr. Garcia as my Rheumatologist. She is current on modern medicine and open to her clients using a more natural approach to pain management. While she’s not a prescriber for natural medication, she’s understanding of her clients’ choices. Her bedside manner is simply amazing! She’s kind, respectful, and most importantly she listens to her clients. Dr. Garcia is definitely one of the best health professionals I’ve ever had.

One of the most rude, uncaring, doctors I've ever been to. She will argue with you about what you have had in the past and present, because she didn't have all the medical records. Just terrible.

Dr. Garcia saw me because I had been written off by other providers. For years I had chronic fatigue and pain and it was only getting worse. On my first visit she sent me for tests and found the issue. I am on meds for it. I later found out that my kids had the same medical condition and they now have the meds that they need. If it wasn’t for this Dr. diagnosising me, my kids pedestrian would have never known to test them!

This was my first visit with Dr. Garcia, and she was incredible. She was very thorough, she had already studied my case prior to my appointment, she listened carefully and offered her thoughts as we discussed my symptoms, and she was kind and understanding regarding my pain. She's been the first doctor I've seen for my joint pain who didn't try to shove opiates down my throat and tell me to just "get in pain management and deal with it". I feel very confident I will receive a correct diagnosis!

I have been seeing Dr. Garcia for a year and a half. She is very knowledgeable and caring. She really listens to you and and acknowledges your pain. Autoimmune diseases are not always quickly or easily diagnosed, but she will stick with you. I always know that she is there for me and does everything she can to help me. I have recommended her to many people.
