My first impression of Dr. Garber was that he was VERY confident and knowledgeable. I had met with 2 other surgeons prior to meeting Dr. Garber and there was no comparison. He was caring, took lots of time (and his office, as always!) was PACKED. Yet he didn't rush me at all. That shows he's not just a \"machine\" but instead a caring and patient doctor. He explained the procedures in detail, answered all my questions in depth, and made me feel at ease.rn
rnI would also like to commend the women who work for him:rn
rnFarrah: a total sweetheart. Patient, caring, supportive and AWESOME at what she does. I felt bad calling so much but she NEVER made me feel like a pest and was always helpful. She handled the insurance end of the surgery totally and completely. I didn't have to do anything! Farrah has a halo over her head :-)rn
rnStephanie: She is a Saint! I had to bother her with forms, letters (I got a Jury Duty assignment and she wrote me a letter the very day I called!), all the forms my job required...all my questions. SO organized and patient.rn
rnLisa: So sweet and organized. She was at the front desk the first time I met Dr. Garber. I was a wreck...so nervous, and stressed out when I walked in. She was very nice and calmed me down. The office was packed and she explained why and even made me laugh! She was also VERY helpful when Farrah was busy.rn
rnAnna Stoessel: She....is one of the nicest, sweetest people I have ever met! She ran the Pre-op class very professionally and with SO MUCH patience. She explained every step, was supportive (I must have looked like I was going to faint!), very gentle in her demeanor, and also very willing to help with my fears. I wish all RNs were like Anna. She defines ANGEL.rn
rnI'll update this after my surgery as well but so far I have nothing but praise for Dr. Garber and his staff. rn
There is nothing I can say that isn't full of praise!rnrnPOST-OP:rnrnI am more thrilled than ever with Dr. Garber and his entire staff. They are all very attentive and supportive. Dr. Garber was right there for me on a Saturday night when I called in due to a problem. He is fantastic about replying to emails.rnrnDonna Franco is very supportive and caring. She's also very good about mailing prescriptions and returning calls.rnrnAll in all: I would recommend Dr. Garber to anyone and everyone considering WLS. Everyone in his team is awesome...and a special cheer goes out to Anna Stoessel. She's an angel in every way!
