Wonderful!

I had been hurting for years and no one would help and no one could seem to tell me what was wrong with me. After 5 years of living in pain and encountering numerous drs and staff, I was referred to Dr Garrison by a friend. I was pretty reluctant, but I went...I got a bit discouraged because the wait was so long, but after seeing him and interacting with his staff, it was definitely worth the wait! He has got to be one of the best doctors I have ever encountered with a staff that is just as wonderful as he is. He takes out time to explain what is wrong and how to fix it and is honest to say that if he can't fix it that he will refer you somewhere that can. He helped me...he changed my life....I've been pain free for the past 7 months due to care....I would recommend him to EVERYBODY!!!

Dr, Garrison can't seem to tell me what my problem is and is very impatient with my questions. He doesn't was his hands prior to touching your joints. He doesnt visit his patients when they are in rehab .

the best in ortho around

This Dr is amazingly humble (no God complex here) bedside manner and attitude beyond reproach. Takes each and every case personally. I felt as though I was the only patient he had (and this man is busy) He always answered any and all questions I had and always took as much time with me as needed. He is an amazingly wonderful person as well as a very skilled surgeon.

Dr. Garrison is a lifesaver

My 19 year old daughter has been seeing Dr. Garrison for 5 years. He has performed two knee surgeries and is seeing her now for an injury to her knee which happened as a result of a wreck. He is very caring and attentive. I was worried about her having surgery so young, but he tried everything else possible before resorting to surgery. He isn't one that cuts first without trying something else. I couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Garrison and his staff. They are great!
