In selecting a rheumatologist (with assistance from my MD pulmonology team in Louisiana & Texas), we chose Dr Garcia. Quite simply, the best...

Dr Garcia actually listened to me and discussed my medical condition. I appreciate his thoughtful manner and understanding. I also like that I can access my medical tests and records for this doctor.

I have Lupus and have been seeing Dr. Garcia for several years. He is extremely intelligent and he researches your problem to provide the latest available treatment. He is very thorough and does the best job possible with each patient. He has referred me to other specialists also. I have seen other doctors in Kansas City and Lufkin for Lupus and he is the best Rheumatologist that I have had. He has a very kind and gentle personality. I highly recommend him.

in Bullard, Tx |
I had to change rheumatologist due to insurance company and was lucky enough to get Dr. Garcia-Cavazos, I saw him for a year and his help with my R/A was the best I could have hoped for, I returned to my former rheumatologist because of another change in insurance, I live in Tyler and the distance was a problem other than that I would still be with him. As far as his staff I can honestly say he has the shortest time from check in to talking to the doctor I've ever had on every appointment.
in Nacogdoches, TX |
Dr. Garcia is better than excellent. He quietly listens to your complaints regarding your health. He asks questions and then listens to your answers. He really cares about improving your health. Your health is his number one concern. Thank you Dr. Garcia.

He is very through, did numerous lab work and xrays to find out what my problem was. Asked questions and listened to me without being in a big hurry. He prescribed a medication that helped me regain full use of my fingers and shoulders. His office does all the lab work, is clean and organized, his staff was friendly and helpful.

Dr Garcia Cavazos not only takes time answering my questions, but he is thoughtful & compassionate as well. With my chronic illness, I also really need a great staff. His nurses are fabulous. The medical assistants are quick to send out referrals or handle questions from my other doctors. I only wish all my doctors were like Dr Garcia

I would recommend Dr Garcia to all of my family and friends. I have never been to a doctor like him. He took the time to listen to everything I had to say, and I had a lot to say because I have several health issues. He ran test that no one else did and he found some of the reason's why I was have the problems I was going through. He is very well manerd, and his staff will give him any message you call in right away, they do not wait days to talk to him.

I am so glad that I found Dr. Garcia; he has been most helpful to me and gone further to find out what was wrong than some other docs have. His staff is friendly and so is he; he explains everything to me and answers all of my questions. I feel like we work as a team and I like this. He makes suggestions that are appropriate and discuss my tests with me; he never rushes me and when I leave his office I feel as though he has done everything needed. He smiles and has always seemed to happy.

Down to earth guy who was up front w/ me.
in Nacogdoches tx |
Appointment time was 815 am . Arrived 805. Was not called in till 845am and then waited on doctor another 10 minutes. People who have a business cannot wait all this time. If appointment time I s 815 then the doctor and staff should be ready at 815. Office staff to lack. Doctor Garcia is good. After waiting all the time , my appointment lasted only 5 minutes.I waited 40 minutes for a 5 minute visit.
