Dr. Garas is the most knowledgeable, kind, gentle & helpful doctor I have ever met. He is by far my favorite doctor ever! I had a bit of a high risk pregnancy and he was so reassuring every step of the way. My baby was breech and he delivered her by C-section with no problem. He prayed with us before the surgery and had Third Day playing in the operating room. What a great atmosphere! He & his staff were so reassuring and such a blessing every day, but especially on our delivery day. God bless Dr. Garas!
Dr. Garas is the nicest most caring doctor I've ever met. I was having infertility issues and I went to see him for treatment. I was pregnant within 3 months of my first visit with him, after trying for a year. Very good doctor, makes you feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. Highly recommend him! He saw us through my pregnancy and even though he didn't get to deliver my daughter, he was very attentive.
I was very nervous about finding an OB after moving to the area. I was so fortunate to find Dr Garas! I searched the web, compared credentials and decided to go to him eventhough I had to wait a few months for my initial appointment. It was very much worth the wait! Dr Garas saw both my husband and I and explained everthing to us thru some personal issues we were having with regards to our intimate relationship. I became pregnant and at my 7th mo visit, we learned my son had passed away. Dr Garas and his staff have been more than I expected from the clinic to the hospital. They were so kind,caring, sympathetic, and I am so glad I was in his care because this was the worst moment of my life and he explained everything so thoroughly and took so much care with me to make sure I was not only physically but emotionally ok that I feel very secure in my choice of having him as my Dr.
I have been a patient of Dr. Garas' since 2004. I would say he is my favorite Dr. out of any physician I have seen my entire life. If I moved, I would be willing to drive a good distance to remain his patient. I could use many complementary words to describe him but here are some that come to mind: attentive, professional, intelligent, respectful, responsive, ethical, genuine, gentle, helpful. He is a very good listener who is open minded. He will listen to your healthcare concerns and team with you to provide best care possible. He has a way of putting people at ease. You need not fear about asking questions as he never makes you feel stupid or rushed. He always makes time to explain things and ensure you feel comfortable and understand those explanations. If you want quality healthcare which is hard to find in this day and age, he is the absolute best Dr. you will find, in my opinion.
Dr Garas is a very nice doctor and was very helpful. He didnt make me feel awful about a miscarriage and was very straight forward, however...his nurses are the WORST nurses I have ever met. I have been lied to straight over the phone to the point were i was told a ultrasound showed everything was fine and at 5 week and when I saw him and he read the proceedure, it said none of that! She completely lied to me!! I feel very distrustful of anyone in his stuff but him. I am looking into finding a new doctor because of this. Its very unfortunate because I really loved him as a doctor.
Dr.Garas is probably one of the best doctors I have ever experienced. Although, I was not his patient. My wife was I went to every appointment and he managed to treat me with the same equal respect as if I was his patient. My wife loved him and I would highly refer him to ANYONE.
