Three Stars

Dr. Gartlan was the rudest most condisending physician I have met. I am an RN so have met many doctors in my career. I will not continue as a patient, and would not recommend anyone else to see him either. He may be brilliant, but being curt and rude does not win out over that for me.

Dr. Gartlan is great! Sorry i can't say the same about the office staff

I would highly recommend Dr. Gartlan. I had been to several other doctors for the same health issue and they weren't able to help me. The others prescribed nasal spray or blamed it on seasonal allergies But, Dr. Gartlan correctly diagnosed my health problems in the first visit, and he performed a successful sugery to correct the health problems I was having. What I liked best about him is that he took time to explain the procedures and surgery, and talked TO me rather than AT me in terms I could easily understand. Now, the waiting time has been longer than I would like, but all in all, it was worth the wait to be able to breath so much better now. As for the office staff, they are a very cold and unfriendly group of people. I guess they don't realize how cold and uncaring they come across to others. They're usually the first contact so they should be nicer - or at least smile and be polite.
