Fantastic diabetes doctor. She is very knowledgeable about the latest studies in diabetes as well as newer medications. She spent extra time with me explaining a new medication she was giving me to make sure I felt comfortable and understood why she was recommending it. I'm not sure about the negative comments. I had a great experience and I don't generally like going to the doctor. I can't believe I'm saying this but for the first time I feel optimistic about treating my diabetes and most of my optimism comes from meeting with Dr McGarvey and her sunny and caring disposition.

Dr. Mcgarvey does not have sufficient experience to deal with diabetic patients. She spends most of her time looking herself in the mirror and shopping for expensive clothes that she wants to show off to patients and other doctors. She should go through a thorough review by insurance companies to see if she orders labs that are completely unnecessary.

I have seen Dr. McGarvey only once so far. Based on that one interaction, I would say that she is fabulous! She was on time, she was attentive, listened well, provided new ideas, and seemed to be pretty knowledgeable as far as I could tell. Reading through some of these other reviews, I can't imagine they saw the same Dr.

After a year or so, she might have gone through the trouble of taking a crash course on diabetes and the different types of insulin, but very few physicians--endocrinologists or not--are willing and able to study the lab results, particularly the A1C. Knowing the results of the A1C aids in a more accurate calculation of the units of insulin recommended and the best time to inject the insulin. If you take too much, you may get levels under 70, and most likely you will be too hungry or dizzy or both. If you take too little, you may end up with medium-high levels such as 160-180, and you will still be hungry. The units of insulin and the type of insulin should be projected in order to maintain (more or less) normal levels of glucose throughout the day and night, ideally 99-100. If this doctor explains this to you and prescribes the best medication, then you can say you are in good hands. But if she cannot guess or needs a e-calculator to figure out how much insulin you need, then you should request a refund to your insurance and to your pocket!

I found her to be caring and engaging. Extremely knowledgeable about diabetes. Actually looking forward to going back to my next appointment. Earlier comments seem discordant to my experience. She’s fantastic and worth the wait

Dr. has no familiarity with the different types of insulin and the units needed according to test results. She should be taking basic courses on diabetes.

If she does not like the patient(s), she may log in the wrong cause of the visit. She is intentionally malicious and mean. Has no professional manners! It is difficult to understand why she is still in the medical profession.

The worst part is when a doctor does not follow up on the labs and tests that s/he ordered. The patients lose confidence in both the good faith and the abilities of a doctor to continue with treatment. Putting patients down helps even less.

Great doctor . I have seen her for over 6 years and feel she is very compassionate. the other reviews listed seem like they are all from the same dissatisfied person

Don't believe the publicity and propaganda that she makes around cyberspace. When you finally make it to her office, she won't even have studied your clinical history, a major problem that leads to improvisation. When doctors improvise, many things can go wrong.
