I have been a patient of Dr Garay for more than 30 years. His diagnostic skills are superb. I recently had respiratory symptoms after a vaccine, and he called me back in the evening after a long day of patient care. I would highly recommend Dr Garay.

I recieved very different diagnoses each time I visited. None were entirely similar to the one I finally received elsewhere. When I reminded him about the things he had told me in previous visits he became very angry and denied saying them. This was confusing, to say the least. How would I have the background to make these things up ? Don't. Just don't.

Dr Garay discovered that I had pneumonia when my regular doctor said that it was just a cough.He called me at my home only hours after taking an x-ray.He was caring and informative in away that doctors today are not.One of the best in his field.

More interested in dictating than treating a patient. If you not from someone famous forget about it. No ethics as a doctor. Staff is rude, his nurse practitioner knows more than he does.

Excellent doc! Yes, there are problems with wait times, but Dr. Garay is definitely worth the wait. Dr. Garay does a fantastic job monitoring my asthma and adjusting my medications appropriately. He is a good listener ? even compassionate ? so important with a decades-long relationship.

Waited 90 minutes for appt. Patient in front of me waited close to hour but said that's a chronic situation and told me he's an excellent doctor and worth the issues with waiting. Had excellent discussion where the doctor promised to follow up regarding a procedure he was looking in to for me with my insurance company. I phoned 3 times over the course of 4 months to the point I told the receptionist I'll assume him not wanting to return my call means I need to move on. Waste of my insurance $$
