I went to see Dr. Gari from a recommendation of another Dr. The way they looked after me and treated me is what is missing from other Doctors. Thank you to Dr. Gari and his staff I feel 1000 percent better.

They told me they accepted Cigna. Which they did not. Then they sent my urine sample to their own lab and billed over $11,000. His treatment did not work for my pain.

Disorganized services. No respect for patients. Long, unnecessary wait-on-the-line periods, EXPENSIVE (3-digit co-pay WITH insurance.) Visited once. Had to fill out paperwork THREE TIMES due to disorganization. He requested an expensive ($9,800) lab work that was not needed (2nd opinion confirmed this,) and proposed an operation that was also not needed (2nd opinion confirmed this!) While I was seeking 2nd opinion, Dr. Gari never called me back to be told about the lab results.

Dr. Gari and his staff care more about healing you than making money. They address the root cause of your pain rather than simply the symptoms. He isn't one of those here's your prescription, go pay at the desk types; he actually wants to study your MRI, find out the exact cause of your pain and then find the best approach toward a solution. I'd rather have this guy working on my teeth than my dentist given his skill with my back! Also: Keurig in the waiting room. Hell yeah!
