Surgeon Testimonial

Luis Garcia, M.D.
First impressions are lasting ones. He had a small dry humor about him.I knew months before that he was who I wanted after reading his profile online from our Gastric bypass web site. His office staff have been nice,smile alot and offer lots of information and keep you posted on developments. Others that are meeting him for the first time some may think he is to laid back. Give him the chance,all around nice guy. He was VERY up front about the risks of surgery and the risks of not having surgery. He cuts right to the chase. I think he is a nice doctor and like I said has that dry humor and good bed side manner about him. After meeting with him over the past two years and trusting him for 3 (yes, not a typo) surgeries, I can say that I totally trust my life to his hands.
