What an amazing doctor! He was the only one who could figure out what was wrong with me and was able to correct it with a minor surgery.....I owe him my life!

When I met Dr. Peter Garcia he told me that I might have Lymphoma, a form of cancer. He sent me for an MRI and then refused to return my calls. I called him 9 times over a two week period. His assistant actually laughed and said "Oh, he doesn't return phone calls. He will see you when you come in for your follow up visit. But I was traveling in NY and just wanted to know if I had cancer. He did not care. DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR! He only cares about money, NOT YOU!

I would recommend Dr Garcia however office personal is very unprofessional. Dr. office was paid by insurance company and by myself and I am having a very hard time trying to get back my payment. Office personal keeps on giving excuses for not giving refund. It has almost been 3 months after operation and still they keep with excuses. I would rather work with another professional doctor and staff because one without the other leads to a rough path for patient
