Our appointment had been cancelled, but my wife did not get the voicemail. They worked us in on the day of the original appt, which was a huge help, as we had traveled 5 hours to get there. Very honest and professional staff. Very in-depth explanation of my disabled wife's needs.

Dr. Garza was very helpful and knowledgeable about my concerns. He explained everything in a way that was very understandable. I would highly recommend him. His nurse was very polite and showed care as well. The front receptionist however could use some social skills.

So far so good. Informative and kind. Understanding in a difficult situation. Worked with my general surgeon and my schedule to ensure my surgery is done in a timely manner. Have yer to have my surgery but I’m confident he will not disappoint.

Dr. Garza is a knowledgeable, skilled and caring surgeon. He always takes the time to listen to the patient's concerns. No matter how busy his schedule, he does not rush his patients. I have had two surgeries with him and have complete confidence and Trust in his judgment and integrity. I found his calm, honest manner reassuring

He ruined my life. Period. This man does NOT know what he's doing. When I say he ruined my life I mean it literally. I've been paying for his ineptness for years and will till the day I die. STAY AWAY FROM HIM!

Dr. Garza performed a simple procedure on my abdomen. What should have been a 1-inch incision was enlarged to 2.5” when it was completely unnecessary. He closed the incision incredibly poorly, leaving a ¾” high, 4” long ridge protruding from my abdomen. In the follow-up visit, he said that “he could fix it”. In the second procedure, he once again closed the incision incorrectly and incredibly poorly, making the HIDEOUS scar much worse. He NEVER apologized and did not return my calls for weeks.

Dr. Garza is an outstanding doctor. He went above and beyond to make sure I had the proper care while recovering from reconstruction surgery. The surgery went well but my recovery was very difficult due to having a compromised immunity system. Dr. Garza was called to the hospital to check on me numerous times after seeing me earlier during the day. He had to even do an unexpected emergency surgery around 11:00 at night. He is a wonderful all around doctor that is a compassionate and caring man.

I would NEVER recommend him to anyone! After 2 extremely botched surgeries, He had the audacity to try and make me feel like it was my fault! HE placed my implants under my clavicle and in my armpit area the first surgery, The lift that he did was a complete failure. The second surgery, he told me that he had to do another lift and replace the implants. 10 mins before surgery, He looked me in the eyes and LIED to my face. He did not do the lift because "He changed his mind". He is an evil man!

I wouldn't recommend him at all. Had a double mastectomy and he put in "seri scaffolding"(to hold up my breast) and he KNEW they had been recalled! sent me home without antibiotics after surgery! Needless to say, they got infected and I had to have them removed! (Not by him) He didn't care and called me " his problem child!" I'm still waiting for reconstructive surgery 2 years later! I saw he had 2 other complaints against him! He has NEVER called me to say "sorry." :(

I so wish I could give more than five stars. Dr. Jerry Smith did my Mohs surgery (for basal cell carcinoma) and then referred me to Dr. Garza to close the wound because it was very near my eye. Dr. Smith made an incision in the crease of my eye and Dr. Garza stitched up the opening so that now when it heals the incision will be invisible, as it is in the crease (OK line :) that was already on my face. He is an absolute artist and a joy to be around. Kudos also to his assistant, Caroline.
