Dr. Garg was the only doctor who was willing to give me corrective lenses after cataract surgery due to the fact I had had lasik surgery 10 years prior. The results have been fantastic! He explains things thoroughly and is a terrific doctor. I highly recommend him.
in Westminster, CA |
Dr. Garg kept me waiting for a long time and he had no idea what I had. He was asking me really stupid stuff like I should know what's wrong with my eyes. I finally said to him aren't you the doctor? There are way better specialists to see than this so called dr.

Dr. GARG was the first physician I saw when I moved from FL to CA almost 5 years ago. He is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. When he thought I should see an Opthamalogist who specialized in strabismus, he referred me to Dr. Boisvert immediately! I strongly believe that Dr. Garg is top notch and feel grateful that he takes such wonderful care of my eyes.
