Patient Comments (6)
Dr. Garg may be a good surgeon, but he could use a few lessons on compassion and dealing with people. My 81-year-old mother-in-law arrived on time for her scheduled surgery at 1:00 p.m., for which she had been fasting since 8:00 pm the night before, but wasn't taken to OR until 5:20 pm. When my sister-in-law expressed concern that my mother-in-law had not eaten in 21 hours, Dr. Garg had the audacity to YELL at her! How incredibly unprofessional and uncaring. I would not recommend this doc.

I travel almost two hours for my appt. While the Dr is vey good the wait time will discourage me from returning. Has 15 plus patients waiting at a time - no respect for individuals time. Last time there had to wait in hall.

Dr. Garg is a pleasant individual and I am sure he is a good doctor for uneventful eye conditions. But, for those conditions that may require curiosity, additional research or forward thinking, he is sorely uninterested. This doctor has no desire to find out "why" something is occuring and, as a result, is content to do the absolute minimum and forfeit the chance of a more successful recovery.

Dr. Garg successfully repaired a macular hole on my eye 7 years ago. He was wonderful with me. He always takes the time to explain what is going on with my eyes and always answers my questions fully. I see him once a year and even though he is really busy, I never felt as though I was being rushed in any way. I have complete confidence in him and am thankful that he helped me.

I saw Dr Garg for an eye injection. I had this treatment once before at Wills Eye hospital with excellent results. I waited in Dr Garg's treatment chair for over 2 1/2 hours. My eye was numbed 4 separate times waiting for him to return. Dr Garg's manner was cold, insensitive and incompetent. He injected my eye quickly and roughly, causing a huge swelling and pain, then dashed out of the room. I wound up with an injury more than a treatment. Never again!

Great doctor--explained everything in clear language and allowed me to ask all the questions I needed to.
