Dr Garcia actually listens to my concerns and offers up to the minute advice. She is wonderful to work with and I feel very fortunate that she has been my physician for a number of years. Each of her staff members is never to busy to help. Great medical service and so efficient you rarely if ever have a long wait even though they take all the time you need. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Dr. Garcia provides excellent and professional patient care. She listens to my concerns and she talks to me about possible options and treatments. She doesn't rush me, and she makes me feel like I'm her only patient; yet, I know she has many other patients she will see. I always recommend Dr. Garcia to my friends and family!

Dr Garcia & her staff do an excellent job. Dr Garcia is very thorough & really cares about the patient experience.
in Bayview, Texas |
I never have a long wait time in Dr. Garcia's office. If my appointment is at 7:00 a.m. I am seeing the doctor by 7:10. I hear horror stories of five hour waits in other offices. To not have to deal with this is VERY important to me as I must take time off from work to be there. Office staff are always friendly and helpful either in person or on the phone. Dr. Garcia is very concerned and caring with me and I appreciate the professional yet open, friendly attitude she has.
Harlingen, Texas |
I think Dr. Garcia and her staff are very friendly and always willing to help me out with any problems that I may encounter. I always walk in and see smiles regardless of what time my appointment is. The office is also very clean and tidy. I have referred most of my family and friends to her office and they are all also very happy with the services they receive. Thank you Dr. Garcia and Staff!!!!
