Love, love , love Dr. Garrity. He has very casual and engaging bedside manner but, when it comes to care, he gets right to the heart of the matter. If there was one area that drove me crazy was his estimate of time; however, I thought about that-recognized I am not his only patient and decided he was worth the wait now that I knew he tends to run late. He never rushed with me so I assume he treats everyone that way and that, perhaps, is how he runs late. He took my problem seriously from get go.

Dr Garrity is excellent, but his staff frustrates me. I have a recurring issue for which the doctor prescribes an antibiotic. When I call his office the tell me they'll let him know, but then I never hear anything. If i PUSh them gently to expedite things they get quite belligerent with me. I know doctor's are quite busy, but I need to get this medication started.

Dr. Garrity is straight forward, gets to the point, a no nonsense guy. If you want answers, he will deliver.

Made a appointment with him to see if my ears needed to be checked for wax or just needed to be cleaned, a girl comes in and brings me to another room for a hearing test , I said I don't want a hearing test . She brings me back to the room to wait for doctor and he comes in and says to me I really want you to take a hearing test, so he would not examine me without a hearing test. I'm sorry I paid for the office visit, And refused to pay for the test, Tried of Doctors padding our insurance cards

Dr.Garrity was very welcoming and entered the room with a greeting as if you were a good friend. Very warm and caring, extremely knowledgeable and intent on getting to the bottom of issues without jumping right into putting you on medication. Just loved him!
