    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Never Again

The doctor does not have a pleasant bedside manner. I waited an hour for her to come in after I had that silly gown on. When she came in it was like she was in a hurry. I tired talking to them explaining some of my issue I have been having basically brushed them off and told me if nothing changes come back why would I come back I'm there now trying to explain my issue. Then she was not gentle when it came to the pelvic which is a no no in my book. You have to call over and over again to get your results. I had to wait a whole month to get my results and they doctor didn't even call me to explain anything. You shouldn't go into medicine if you don't really care about your patients

N/A

Won't be going back to this medical center or to Dr. Garber. No one would return my 4 phone calls regarding a discrepancy in my medication. She wrote the prescription wrong. No apologies from her rude staff once I did reach someone after 5 days. The office is dark and dank with a TV that is one of old heavy things. The guy at the front desk is unprofessional and sarcastic. When I had my physical, I had to call them for the results. Evidently, I was supposed to get a slip of paper from them with a phone number to call, but, of course, no one ever mentioned that detail. When you have a physical, your blood is taken separately and you sit in the waiting room for up to 45 minutes after your so-called physical before it's drawn. No urine is taken. Dr. Garber would ask me a question, and while answering it, she would roll her eyes and interrupt and ask the same question again, not allowing me to explain. Won't be going back. A prescription phone call should be returned within a day, not 5 days. I mentioned I thought I had IBS, and it was totally overlooked and not mentioned in return. Nice.

Wonderful, caring physician

There should be more physicians like Dr. Garber. Very concern about me and my health. The only reason I am no longer her patient is because II moved from the area! I am referring a colleague moving into the area to her. Good things should be shared!
