Patient Comments (4)
in Roy |
Once I had my surgery she was no where to be found. I get it was a "routine" surgery for her, but no surgery is "routine" for the person is getting the surgery. I was scared and in pain and received little to no help after. I ended up in the ER because I couldn't even get her office to call me back after being elbowed in the surgical site. I will NEVER go back to her.

Dr. Garvey is a serious doctor who really takes care of her patients. Pretty sure she saved my life two years ago. She does not sugar coat things, she just tells you how it is. Hospital staff are on there toes when she arrives. Thank you Dr. Garvey; I recommend you to everyone I know!!

Dr. GARVEY treated me for 7 broken ribs and lung and liver contusions, as well as 10 fractured vertebrae that came as a result of being bucked off of a horse. I appreciated her no nonsense approach. She was direct and to the point. I found her to be an excellent surgeon.

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.
