Ratings for Dr. James M. Garrity
Mr. Garrity opened my L&I claim 28 weeks ago however because I had become unemployed he didn't put down restrictions for work(I'm a Vested Journeyman Union Roofer loc 153 Tacoma) L&I took this to mean I was able to work (I have little feeling left in my L hand do to carpol tunnel) L&I therefore refused to pay 28weeks of back pay.($27,000.oo) I ask Dr.Garrity to please explain to L&I that. I was unable to work when we filed my claim. HE SAID IT WAS UNETHICAL. TO BACK DATE CERTIFICATIONS. he told me to try another dr.
I was injured on the job 3-25-2012 and have been seeing Dr James Garrity in Silverdale ,WA for followup appts monthly. Dr Garrity has shown me the respect I deserve and that he is an expert in his field of occupational medicine. He answers all of my questions and explains what I need to know. The only problem I have is with his staff. Nurses are not very friendly and have been rude to me over the phone. Such as putting me on hold w/o asking me if it was ok and leaving me on hold for several minutes. I spoke with Dr Garrity about this.
