I moved back recently to FL and spent a lot of time looking for a good G.I. I can honestly say that I found one in Dr Garrow. His staff were extremely proffesional, polite and very helpful. Dr Garrow took the time to really listen and was very empathetic to my health issues. I highly recommend Dr Garrow and all the staff at his practice.
Dr Garrow is a smart doctor and a nicer person. He took time to explain my condition, did a procedure and treated my problem with his scope. He doubts the symptoms will come back and I believe him. Very good experience. He is very busy, office is always full of patients. All the people in the waiting room say how good he is.
2 months since my procedure and still unable to reach the dr.The nurse won't return my calls.I was given no follow up appointment and no instruction for my condition which I was unaware of prior to the procedure. Also the meds I'm on are the wrong kind and he hasn't changed them yet either. Unacceptable.Cant even get an appointment.It's all about speed.Get them in and out to make the money.
This patient remarks upon a common problem all of us physicians encounter, time management. In this era of managed healthcare, it is important to diagnose, treat acute illness and discharge patients from the hospital as "efficiently" as possible. Consultants such as myself are in high demand, I personally go to four hospitals each day. Because of this, my practice employees Nurse Practitioner's to speak to patients before and after procedures and review findings, treatment plans and follow up. Also, the primary doctor on the case is thoroughly advised regarding findings, treatment plan and follow up. Some patients are not used to this manner of inpatient care. I still personally see all my hospital patients in the office afterwards for further management of their gastrointestinal issues. This patient does not leave a name with this review, making it difficult to fully analyze and understand any specific failures in communication which may have occurred. My business card is left with each patient's chart which includes my office phone number and cellular phone number. Our phone systems at the office have been revamped this summer, we have had nothing but positive reviews since then regarding phone call follow up. I invite you to call me for an appointment and see if you struggle as much as this patient reflects. If so, please call me personally at (843) 214-5986. My goal is to help each patient I see feel better.
