Patient Comments (4)
salem, va |
Very unreliable about appointments starting anywhere close to when they're scheduled to occur. Office staff (both check-in/schedulers and nurse) very rude.
Roanoke, VA |
Have been to see him twice, both times I had to wait at least 45 mins over my scheduled time due to delays in his schedule, neither time did he apologize. Very poor bedside manner, like I was an inconvenience to him. Second appointment I had a bladder scope done, which was extremely painful, he basically yelled at me to calm down and let it happen because if I didn't he would have to put me out in surgery setting and my insurance company would not like that.

I had 2 kidney stones to large to pass was hospitalized for a kidney infection that spread to my bl ood stream and he wanted me to wait almost 2 months. Before could see him ended back in the emergency room because one was attempting to pass and causing another infection. If you don't not want to remain in pain do not go to him
Troutville, VA |
I had translational mesh implant causing much pain. He insisted nothing was wrong with me and treated me like a hypochondriac. Dr Garvin removed the mesh 10 years later and gave me my life back. I have not been back and would NOT recommend him to others!
