    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.

Wonderful Office

I have been a patient of Dr. Garvin's for over 10 years. I currently am without medical insurance. He still takes care of me and provides the same quality of care as he always has. The staff is very friendly.

Dr. Garvin's ofc is not professional,it is loud and seems disorganized. When I saw the dr recently with a problem he did not even examine me and try to find a solution just told me to pick something up from the drug store. when I had insurance they wanted every 3-6 months now that I have no insurance he wants to see in a month. He charges 95.00 to write a priscription and then he writes a priscription for a blood pressure med that I have not been on in around 1-2 years (he is the one that took me off of them )and a prescription for the one I am currently taking. Which leaves me to wonder does he actually pay attention to detail? The office staff is not helpful and rude.I will be finding a new dr anyone/anywhere else has got to better than this.
