Dr. Garvey is thorough and efficient. She saved my father's life. He had pancreatitis and she was the er on call surgeon. She took unbelievable care of him. She spoke with him honestly and sternly and told him what he had to do to recover. He recently had pancreatitis again and Dr.Garvey is here for him again. We know she will be straight forward and tell him what he has to do to be healthier and gain strength back. He respects her candor and trusts her advice and instructions.
