Dr. Garber has always worked with compassion, and provides me with… See more
Dr. Garber has been mine and my husband's doctor for many years and we could not be more pleased with his treatment. He always encourages you when you are sick and helps you look for better days. We were always able to see him when we needed to even before he became MDVIP. I will always be grateful to him for saving our son Michael's life when many doctors in Houston, Tx had given… See more
I actually look forward to seeing my doctor. Dr Garber.
My doctor wants to be a Doctor. Likes helping others. His interests are in helping.
Some of his qualities I see are.
Dr. Garber has been my doctor for going on 30 years. He has always shown the highest regard for my health and well being. He is available when needed and has always made the proper decisions regarding my treatment. He is in large part responsible for the good heath I possess as I approach 80 years old.
Dr. Garber has been an Acquaintance for about 25 years and my doctor for over 20 years. I like Dr. Garber as my doctor as well as a friend. I can tell him most anything and he hears me. I also appreciate that he can make things that are not so good seem OK. He is watching me get older but gives me confidence that I am going to die old anyway. We can talk when I need to talk about health issues… See more
Many times Doctor Garber has exceeded all expectations in the quality and dedication to provide the best care possible. My family will live longer and better because of his care.
Dr. Garber is always available, listens to your complaints and addresses them. He was instrumental in saving my son's life when his diabetes was out of control and he was in another state. He took care of what about 15 doctors was doing in Houston. Bringing him to Huntsville and Dr. Garber saved his life.
