I have been seeing dr. Garg for approximately 20 years. He is a professional, kind, knowledgeable, and concerned Dr. His staff is always Pleasant and helpful. I would not know what to do without him. I drive from my home in Las Vegas every 3 months for my appointment with dr. Garg.

Dr. Garg has spent many hours with my mother both in the hospital and out. He is very responsive and returns calls immediately. He has taken time to explain procedures, tests and results. He has been very thorough in a very tough time.

Dr Garg is a fine highly qualified cardiologist and I recommend him to everyone. He is a little difficult to understand but when he is asked to clarify he does. He is friendly and I did not feel rushed . The one test given was appropriate and he explained the results. Do not be afraid to go here.

Insisted on taking unnecessary tests (all test had negative findings). Medical Bills came in very high and I was not advised that insurance would not cover the procedures. Reported inaccurate information to primary doctor- he told my primary doctor that I said that I had heart palpitations which was not true.
