One Star

My husband has been a patient for >-15 years. the last time he went to see. all was good until then. the pharmacy filled Xanax same maker, same color after 2-3 weeks of feeling NOT right we looked up his med on pill identifier, well low and behold was XANAX NOT OXY IR 30mg. he was not asking for a new pain med prescript. He has been told by Dr Garner he will not live very long. The whole problem is a not trained nurse who she thinks no matter what garner says is wrong. She HAS ABSOUTLELY NO business working in the medical field period!!! My husband tested negative before living the house except for benzoz but Karen said he tested for morphine and who knows what else! She has absolutlely NO morals and she by lying about the numerous positives on the screen she is committing a drastic crime. Thanks to her "criminal stunt" today my husband will be taken drasticallly soon from his 15 year old son and myself!!!!! If something is NOT done about their office in Ashland and the Rite Aid Pharmacy on Blackburn this will end up harming more and more people!!!!

Never had a more caring doctor!

He takes the time to actually listen to what I have to say! He will discuss options instead of saying it's just his way or the highway! He has a great bedside manner and during hospital stays has been prompt and on top of everything, including what the consulting doctors are doing!

Terrible Records Staff

When I moved here, I brought my daughter's entire medical record from birth. When I requested my daughter's medical record back because of her need to go to a different doctor, they gave me a disheveled record with much of it missing and copies of 5 other patients medical records. I am in need of the missing records to take my daughter to a specialist and am now trying to locate the records 800 miles from where I live. Who knows whose records they have placed them in. I don't understand why the record was taken apart to begin with. Also, I have had lab work results for myself come up missing and have had to have the blood work redone because of the incompetancies of his staff.
