This Character has an ego much larger than his talent! He had an MRI to follow that told Dr. GOD to do four things. In 2012, he did two and said that he didn't think the other nerves that were pinched were worth bothering with. He left me a chronic pain patient and made jokes about it! He did a fusion so now I cannot have another back surgery without yet another fusion, leaving me immobile. EVIL PERSON!

My L5/S1 discectomy was a complete failure. I did not get any feeling back in my leg and have more pain in more places. I believe more nerve damage happened during surgery because now I have pain on the bottom of my foot ending my ability to run or even walk more than 200 ft. He responded by asking me if I wanted more surgery. He kept inaccurate records by saying I was a drinker and smoker. I'm neither and was never asked. I WAS a runner. He always said my pain level was less than what I marked

This Doctor is incredibly skilled - I've trusted him with my mobility and quality of life and have not been disappointed.

I didn't see Dr. Garvey at his current location. I saw him in 2005-2006 at another MPLS clinic. Due to a genetic bone disorder, I have been seeing orthopedics my entire 50 years. It is important to me to share my experience with Dr. Garvey because he made such a positive impact on me. I was experiencing problems for 2+ years & had seen many doctors of varying specialties, none of which could locate from where these issues were coming. He's my hero - professional, patient, careful, brave, best.
