Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Garza "Weight loss and healthy weight maintenance not only improve medical conditions but they impact quality of life and how people feel about themselves. As a medical student, I was 40 pounds heavier than I am now with borderline high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I sought assistance from a bariatrician - a physician who specializes in the medical (non-surgical) field of weight loss. We use FDA-approved prescription medications along with guidelines for nutrition and behavior changes."

Dr. Garza is amazing. She is really supportive and listens to what is standing in your way of reaching your goals and helps to provide alternatives. I get the same level of care from the NP on staff. They do have a very strict tardiness policy but if you call ahead and let them know you're running...more

I started going to Dr. Garza's office last year. I have NEVER met her in person. The only people I have met with are dietitians, and her "unprofessional" rude office staff.

Ms. Aubrey - 1) As 1 of 3 board-certified Obesity Medicine physicians in Plano, I see patients M/T/Th 8-5 & F 8-4. I'm ALWAYS avail upon request. 2) We have no dietitians. Every page of the website states this. All other providers are FT board-certified nurse practitioners. 3) Yes, we do have a strict tardiness policy. Many times, we can accommodate late patients. However, there are many days when we cannot in respect to other patients' appts. We apologize for the inconvenience. - Dr. Garza
