Terrible patient Rapport. Has the personality of a dead fish & just shows you that he really doesn’t care about your personal wellbeing. Talking to him is very strenuous, makes you feel like you are an absolute bother for coming to his office. Would not recommend at all.

Extremely poor, I was sent to Dr Garrison by the WTCHP after the surgeon at Sloan-Kettering forgot to compare the two clear cell cancers in each kidney. The microscope histological examination was inconclusive according the pathologist and my surgeon. RCC protocol calls for the next test to be a molecular comparison of the two cancers which were not done. The surgeon had forgotten i had the other kidney cancer removed the year before and failed to order the test for comparison. I told Dr Garrison this, and said i needed Dr Garrison to order the molecular comparison test the surgeon refused to admit to forgetting. Shockingly Dr. Garrison replied that the only treatment he would provide would be to observe my condition, that he would not provide any testing. I then left his office in absolute dismay.

My mother received a Advanced SCLC diagnosis from a biopsy of a tumor from her cerebellum in 2011. This diagnosis has a life expectancy of 3-6 months. Immediately, as she recovered from her double brain surgery, Dr. Garrison fought, at her cancer board review, to have my mom receive 1 round of chemo before she was transferred to an off-site BI rehab. Dr. Garrison gave us a course of care we agreed highly with & my mom lived 2 yrs. He’s a true advocate for his patients.
