He's really great with our boys. He takes the time to talk to your child about what's going on as well as the adult. I know every time we have to make a visit it'll go smoothly :)

THE pediatric ENT for us

Dr. Garner is one of the finest doctors we have ever visited. He is caring, really caring, and listens. Although at times the wait to see him is long in the office, it is because he is taking the time to listen and answer questions with each patient. I never felt like a number. I always felt like he knew his stuff and had our best interests in mind. Like any great doctor, the staff can make all the difference in the world. His assistant, Tiffany, never dropped the ball on anything in the 2 years we were patients. I liked that he treated my son in small steps - trying to solve his breathing and sleeping issues the easiest way possible. He was small for his age and we lived 60 miles from Columbia so surgery was a concern. He progressed but still needed surgery in the end. Our hospital experience was great! I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone with a pediatric ENT need. Hands down.
