A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Garza has to be the most unprofessional "Dr" I have ever met. I have been a pain management patient for 13 years. My previous Dr of 12 years, drastically reduced my pain medication..thus resulting in severe withdrawal, 100% bedridden, and 0 quality of life. I went to Dr Garza for any kind of help, even surgery..anything that will give me even a tiny bit of quality of life. He walked in the room and started spewing that he will not help me with medication, will not help me with the withdrawal because of the previous Dr...all because I just started on an antidepressant 3 weeks ago, BECAUSE OF THE PAIN. I would not need to be on an antidepressant if my PAIN of 13 years was back under control. He did not even do an exam..his mind was made up before he walked in. He offered no other alternatives, which at this point, I am open to anything! Nope, he refused to even discuss anything with me. What has happened to Doctors that care..not to mention the sacred oath they took to "Do No Harm"...what a joke that oath has become. It's all about money.
Hooked on opioids even after near death incident with hospital stay, this man continued to prescribe me more and more addictive drugs. Ended up in drug treatment center at this mans urging once my family had enough. He is only after the money he makes from insurance, and drug companies. Shameful. He should have his license revoked and never be allowed to practice Medicine anywhere again. Ironic, he has not reached out to me one time after my rehab stint. He knows who I am!
