Dr. John R Garrett has the following 3 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Knows what he is doing

He and his staff clearly work closely and colaboratively to achieve best results. Uncommon to find a human personality that cares about patients inspite of standard surgeon ego; this guy is easy to get along with.

He's a hack. Dangerous, insanely egotistical & over-educated incompetent. His staff is terrified of him Real god-complex. Run don't walk from Dr. Moreau. Trust me: he'll gut you like a fish.
