Specialties

Dr. Martin E Garber has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent bedside Manner!

I have been going to Dr. Garber since 2010. He made sure that my diagnosis was accurate prior to putting me on Rx. He is very courteous and listens to my concerns as well as responds to all my questions. I am pleased to have found such a great Dr. who I know cares about me and my condition!

This is an excellent doctor. I don't know why there are those other bad reviews except that there are always people who doctor shop until they finally find one that tells them what they want to hear. Dr. Garber is smart, kind, thorough and easy to talk to and get ahold of after hours.

Dr. Garber was rude, arrogant, rushed, and failed to do an evaluation of all my affected joints. His report reflected a serious lack of attention to my medical history. There were many errors in his report, including lab findings and previous diagnoses reported incorrectly. I will not return to Dr. Garber and I cannot recommend him as a healthcare provider.

Garber is arrogant, and jumpy. He rushes you in and out of your appointment, whilst you've already waited 30+ minutes overdue. Treatment is second class. After seeing him about 10 times it was na easy decision to find a new rheumatologist. I'm glad I did. Now have a very good doctor who treats me like family as well as maintains my medical problems. I feel secure now!
