Dr. Garb is a class apart from all the doctors out there. I saw him for my first pregnancy and he was warm, friendly, empathetic and answered all of my questions (and I had anton of them being a first-time mom) patiently. He is very knowledgeable and does not force his opinions on you. He answered all my questions on the NM MyChart promptly. He visited me in the LF hospital within two hours of my son being born and was very caring and compassionate. He is a gem of a doctor!!!

Dr Garb was an angel after losing faith in my last doctor. He took his time listening and talking to me about what is been through. Just having somebody recognize that you'd been through some very tough breaks means a lot, but Dr Garb truly cared and it showed. He was vastly different and restored my faith in medical care. He didn't judge me, he only saw a woman who had been through a very large amount of heartache in a short time. His bedside manner is second to none. Wonderful man.

Dr. Garb is fantastic. He is very responsive when you have questions via the MyChart online messaging system, and quick to call you in person if that is necessary. He shows genuine care and compassion and works hard to help find a solution to your problem, including referrals to other specialists as necessary.

I saw Dr Garb at northwestern. He delivered my baby and performed my myomectomy. He is fabulous! Super positive, supportive and knowledgeable! So sad he left the group. He made me relaxed and informed throughout my pregnancy. I was 45 at the time!!

Dr. Garb is a fantastic OBGyn. Intelligent, current, excellent bedside manner, and polished. I would definitely highly recommend him to anyone looking for a world class medical professional. He conducted my yearly Check up, he educated me on my health issues, and performered all pertaining exams in a timely manner. He took the time to listen to my concerns and effectively treated me. So thrilled to have found him, excited for the future w/OB. His staff also ROCKS! Kind, polite, prof! -Steph G
