  • Margaret M | December, 2018

    I saw Dr. Garcia for a knee issue that seemed to be a torn meniscus. A cortisone shot was tried first which brought relief from the pain. After a few weeks it was clear there was still a problem that the cortisone and rest wasn’t resolving. I had an MRI which confirmed the tear and scheduled surgery. All went beautifully.

  • Jocelyn D | December, 2018

    I was seeing a Physical Therapist for some pain in my hip. After a couple of sessions he referred me to Dr. Garcia to rule out a stress fracture. Incredibly, Dr. Garcia was able to see me that same day and get me in for an MRI. When the results came back that afternoon, he took the time to call me as he was heading out of town. The quick diagnosis and care allowed me to start my recovery journey immediately.

  • Kathryn E | November, 2018

    I believe Dr. Garcia is the most exceptional surgeon I have ever met. As a registered nurse of 14 years, and a receiver of multiple orthopedic surgeries, I cannot say enough good things about this surgeon. He immediately advocated for two MRI's the same day he saw me, he tailored the plan of care to my unique situation as an athlete from out-of-state, and I was out of my elbow surgery within one week of meeting Dr. Garcia for the first time.

  • Carmin C | December, 2018

    12 weeks ago I had a posterolateral corner reconstruction along with an ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Garcia has been throughout the process. With my surgery in particular, it would have been easy to miss all the repairs that I needed. He not only did a great job with a complicated surgery, he made sure to explain everything thoroughly.

  • Harvey B | November, 2018

    Dr. Garcia is a wizard. He reconstructed my ACL and completely repaired my MCL and double meniscus tear in three hours flat. I will say that office visits usually run late, but for results this good, it's well worth the wait.
