*utp orthopedic katy* Luckily my grandma still survives after the 2.5 hours of waiting at this clinic. We had the appoint to see Dr. William C Mcgarvey for the for post surgery follow up at 2.30 pm. We arrived at 2.20pm and waited until 3.35 pm to get called for the x-ray then returnee to the waiting room and waited until 5.00pm to see the doctor. They said it was busy then, however, the other patients came in later got called and finished first. Most of their scheduled time was 2.45pm or 3.00pm

We put faith in Dr McGarvey's in the hopes that he would be able to help fix my husbands issues from shattering his ankle 20 years ago at age 18 He suffered daily from pain, scar tissue build up, atrophy etc. The doc was very confident that the answer to fix his problems external fixator. Hearing what he had to say about the success from previous patients give us hope! There may be actually something that could help with his daily quality of life. My husband wore the fixator for a few month

Dr. McGarvey is an amazing physician! He was able to save my left lower leg after it had been traumatically amputated. I thank God for Dr. McGarvey and his team. I am so blessed!

My first bunion surgery resulted in over correction. My foot more deformed and in constant pain. Second bunion surgery resulted in infection (osteomyelitis) and I had to be hospitalized. I tried to get an appointment with him and could only get in to see his physician assistant.

office staff is the absolute worst. they will obfuscate, outright lie, and seem to find the patient's pain of a mere trifle to consider. i would fire them all and get someone who cares

Both visits I was evaluated by a young man ,no idea who he was or his position as neither the doctor or the young man introduced himself to me. I waited two hours to see the doctor and no apology or explanation as to why the long wait, and yes I was on time for the appointment, even early. Poor bedside manner by Doctor, cold and dismissive. Didn't react to my complaints, had his own agenda? Quick to X-ray as he has his own machine in the office. Don't feel optimistic about the treatment path

He is absolutely wonderful. I have seen him for over 10 years for three different foot-related issues, to which he fixed amazingly. He definitely is very knowledgeable of foot and ankle related injuries. Some people in other reviews say that he is cold or mean, but he is a doctor! They are extremely busy, analytical people who are looking to fix your problem, not necessarily be your best friend. He can be blunt, but bottom line he is the best in Houston. I have had a great results come from him

Very impressed. Personal and professional. How he differs from the other elite - The analysis of injury suggested surgery work would be more intrusive than hoped, whilst discussed and conditioned to the assumed work, during the actual surgery DR Garvey was able to adapt seeing the ligment/tendon/tissue to ones desired outcome and result. Whereas it feels other surgeons have their preferred procedure. Ankle is doing well and able to enjoy life with the kids! Thanks to Denis & support team too!
