What People Say About Dr. Rakesh Garg, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Rakesh Garg is a superior physician...he is friendly, but very thorough. Dr. Garg holds patents on five specialized instruments used in treating advanced COPD & other conditions affecting the lungs. I wish all physicians could be as thorough & systematic as he is in treating respiratory conditions, pneumonia, as well as sleep apnea & other sleep disorders. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

I have been going to Dr. Garg for at least five years. He is kind, compassionate and a great physician. At times I have had to wait a little more than a half hour but that is rare. He always takes time to explain things to you (whether you're in the hospital or in the office) that will improve your overall condition. Dr. Garg is the BEST!

Dr. Garg never rushes you, he always takes his time to make you feel like a real person that is concerned with your health. You can be real with him, and he listens and lets you be a part of the treatment plan. I have been seeing him for 24 years and he has kept me healthy.
