Self-verified patient of Dr. Adam D Garretson - Posted on November 14th, 2013
Dr. Garretson inherited me from a retiring doc and I'm a complicated patient. Not only a bout with cancer but chronic conditions as well have been presented to him during our tenure as doctor/patient. He has always listened carefully to my issues and responded with intelligent action and, more importantly, compassion. If he errs it is on the side of caution but always with the best intention and it hasn't served me negatively. When there is a question he doesn't feel comfortable answering, he knows who can and refers without ego. He is the best PCP I have been treated by and I'm happy to have been foisted upon him!
You can't go wrong with Dr. Garretson
