    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 Customer service, Caring Doctor

My aunt needed to establish care in VA from MI. She has many issues and needed a physician right away. I chose Dr. Garris for her certification in hypertension. I called and received a appt the very next day as a new patient. There was a wait but the excellent extremely friendly staff notified me immediately that Dr. Garris was running behind and how long. Dr. Garris nurse Claire, was very pleasant and friendly as well. The office was clean and warm. Dr. Garris did a thorough exam and gave me referrals to see other physicians. The entire office was very different from the service I am use to receiving in Virginia Beach. I would recommend Dr. Garris to anyone. I am also changing my PCP to Dr. Garris.

Very busy practice, the average wait time is to long 2-3hrs. This is not acceptable, especially for elderly people. Some suggestion: Get an office manager to run the office and get it organized(scheduling of patients, billing, etc. , maybe even an Physician assistant or Nurse Practiner to handle the small task appts.,

Great doctor and staff but you have to wait and wait for it. Would have been 4 stars overall if wait times reduce.
