Make sure you research prior

Was diagnosed and got a full thyroidectomy and parathyroid removal. No other option was given, but had I known then what I know now I would have done my research and tried other options first because it was not clear or explained how completely my life, health, and just overall I would change after surgery. So do your homework!! Great surgeon but tries to be "wishful" on results so the down side of surgery and the effects are not what they really are in all fairness. I want the full truth not just the positives, and give me options.

Great surgeon...

Dr. Garner took out half of my thyroid. It was a relatively easy procedure, and I took nothing more than tylenol and ibuprofen for a few days afterwards. She's a skilled, intelligent surgeon who also has an amazing personality!! In addition, she has a pathologist ready during thyroid surgeries. If there's cancer present, she can take the entire thyroid out in one procedure instead of bringing you back in for a 2nd surgery like many doctors. Highly recommend her!!

I have met with doctors before, but she is hands down one of the kindest I have met with. She sets and actually listens to you and walks you through exactly she is going to do and explains to help educate you about what is taking place with your body, and the staff was awesome. Now I am on the mend and working my way to being pain free, so thank you Dr. Garner, you were a huge Blessing the Lord sent my way.
