My husband was a patient of Dr. Garcia at the Yale Eye Center in New Haven , CT in 2014-2015. He suffered a major trauma and had multiple surgeries to fix his ruptured globes. Dr. Garcia and her co-workers were heaven sent . My husband and I are so appreciative and so grateful to have had her help us in such a traumatic time .We will never forget Dr.Garcia . We were saddened to hear about her move but would like her to know of the great impact she left in our lives .She is truly blessed .
