I have had several surgery's over the past 7 years with excellent results. However I am compelled to express how wonderful Dr. Garwood was with my robotic lung biopsy procedure yesterday Sept 10, 2020. I have never had the personnel care with the prior surgery visit while I was being prepped. She spent at least 15 minutes explaining in detail the procedure. When I woke up she was there again explaining what she found. I did not have to wait a day or so to get the information, how wonderful was that. Without question I would recommend Dr. Garwood to family and friends. GMS from Kentucky

Dr Garwood’s office had all my records in order and well coordinated with my primary care physician. She kept me Informed before, during and after my procedure. She is very kind and attentive, asked several questions and listened to my responses.

Dr Garwood is a very caring doctor. Also very informative. Gets up close so there will be no doubt what she's saying to you. I had all four of my grown children with me and she made sure they understood as well. Would recommend to any one who needed a doctor with her expertise.

Dr. Garwood and her staff are the nicest, kindest, and comforting staff I have seen in a long time!! I love that Dr. Garwood sits in front of you and looks into you eyes as she talks with you. You know that you have her undivided attention! She answered all our questions and wasn't in a rush to get out of the exam room. I was very impressed and appreciated her office very much.

I cannot say enough nice things about my interactions and procedure with Dr. Garwood and her staff. They made me feel like I was the most important person when speaking with or handling me in the hospital. She was familiar and knowledgeable about my case and explained every aspect of the procedure.

Dr. Garwood and her staff were kind, patient, and expressed a genuine concern about me and my over all well-being. I was anxious about my appointment, because the purpose was to discuss results of diagnostic testing. Dr. Garwood explained the results in a manner that was comforting and reassuring. Most importantly, she had a plan of action for future medical procedures that we would explore. I will always be grateful to her and her staff.

I was able to get an appointment in a very timely manner, and found Dr. Garwood to be very friendly, helpful and very much interested in our questions and concerns. I developed Bronchitis over a holiday weekend and was able to contact her office and talk to her concerning calling in medication. I was so appreciative that she took this time out for me. I would very much recommend Dr. Garwood.

I can not say enough of how excellent Dr Garwood is. I had suffered with a bad lung issue for 7 months while my other Dr's passed me around and all the while telling me my CT's were "stable" well they were not. Because of Dr Garwood and the absolute great care and compassion that she and the staff at TriStar Centennial Medical Center gave me now we know what we are dealing with and it helps us fight the good fight of faith with the treatment I need. Thank you to Dr Garwood and Staff.
