This business should be put out of business along with their billing company up in Logan. My wife went to him for years and for an obscene amount of money did absolutely noting for her. If you are in pain, do yourself a favor and don't cause yourself more pain by patronizing this establishment. Shame, shame, shame on all of you.

I love Dr. Garg; but his staff is horrible, including PA who just kept saying it was my low back. Eventhough I had a serious fall, the splits in a store. I essentially broke my SI joint and now I have severe arthritis and in so much pain I can't sleep, walk without care or sit. It needs to be fused and as always, after 2nd opinion; but I have to wait and go through all the protocols. What am I supposed to do now. And why are EMTs providing medications, that only nurses should do. His good staff have left

He is professional caring and he gives you a feeling he knows what the problem is and gets right on it! Sometimes less said is better. He listens knows what he is doing . I have never had confidence inothers like I do Dr Garg. No matter what I am glad today I am painfree. It was immediately. I would and have already told referred my friends to him. You have nothing to LOSE but PAIN! Hey that's a good thing. Susan Malmrose

Dr. Garg has helped us more in 4 months than all the other professionals we have seen over the last 20 years. We finally have answers and most of all "hope". We do not fear the only answer that we have heard in the past, "major surgery". He is kind, honest and exceptionally optimistic. We plan to continue working with him and feel he will find the answer and solution we have been seeking for so long.

Dr. Garg is a man of business regarding his practice l meet with monthly. He comes in, checks me asks questions and moves on. He has been competent and fair to me and listens to my concerns & needs. He is always in a hurry but gets the job done properly in my opinion. I am a chronic pain patient with no options for complete recovery from injuries visiting this clinic for more than 2 years. I recommend this doctor.

I've been going to Dr. Garg for months now with no relief and I get treated like a cow in a stockade when he does the most painful injections on me with no relief. He says that I am surgical yet won't refer me to a surgeon due to the money he makes off my insurance company from me. He forgets what medications he prescribes and if the pharmacy has an issue where you need to change the medication, he automatically calls you an addict. Even though he prescribes the medication.

I had the exact same experience as another reviewer. I had gone to a previous doctor for neck pain & was half way through treatments when that doctor left. I went to Dr Garg &he assured me he would do the exact same treatment. The injections were painful & caused more pain after than any other treatments I had received from my previous doctor. When I received the bill it was a completely different treatment than what we had discussed, charged me $700 for a treatment I never would have agreed to.

I went in with back pain. He prescribed lyrica and gave me a shot for back pain. He had me come back to see if it had worked. It didn't help at all. Side effects of the lyrica made me feel weird. I was very depressed. I felt hopeless. In bad pain and dragging my leg. I Told him it did not help me, he stated "well, there is nothing else we can do for you." I began to tear up and he said "have you been to a psychiatrist?" So blunt.No options, referrals or encouragement. See Dr. Richardson

I've been going to Dr Garg for 8 years now and just love him. He is very attentive and kind in all his procedures. My communication is mainly with him instead of office nurses. I like not having to repeat myself. I can almost always get in to see him right away and the same with procedures. He is easy to understand and explains himself in layman terms. I give him a ten.
