The Dr walked in late to the appointment. It was reporting at 11:25 for an 11:40 appointment & he came in after 12. He stated what can I do for you I have a patient on the OR table waiting for me. I stated we were there for results follow up from a hospital stay. He did give the results and asked if my family member was still smoking and they said yes. Then understandably the Dr stated he couldn't do anything for him. My family member was in the wrong and started yelling, but they are in pain & needing relief. I asked my family member to stop & I spoke with the Dr asking my questions. He did answer my questions, but I felt he was rushed to hurry up & get were he was going & it was not any fault of ours he was running behind. My family member then got upset again at the answers we were given & the Dr. stood up & stated he was done. I understand that the Dr does not deserve to be yelled at. Per our previous survey about the last Dr we saw in this same clinic it doesn't seem to have changed. Yes my family member has no health insurance, maybe we would have been treated differently I do not know. This is still this is a hospital & he is in pain & where was the compassion of a patient in need.

Dr. Garrett is a rare find in the neurosurgeon world. He actually sat down and listened to what I had to say. When I was talking he made eye contact with me & you could tell that he was truly hearing what I was saying. He explained what he was looking at on my CT scans & we went over a treatment plan that we both agreed would be beneficial to me. He also explained in detail the surgery he would be doing & explained how he would be removing my spinal cord stimulator even at times using the CT scans to show me certain parts. I feel truly blessed & fortunate that I was assigned Dr. Garrett & would highly recommend him to anyone.

Had never seen Dr. Garrett before. He took so much time to explain things to me and to make suggestions. I'm anxious for him to do my surgery and just wish it could be sooner than two months away.
