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.

Jeffrey Garber is a fine doctor. He listens and suggests procedures to help. As I basically go to the doctor for my wellness check up and maybe one or two other times a year, it is great to know he is there when I need him.
Many Thanks to Dr. Garber!
Thank you Dr Garber for being there when we need you! Since we are older now it is a good feeling to know we can get in to see you when we need and don't have to wait a long time. Thanks also for wanting us to stay healthy and always giving us information on what we can do to stay healthy.
Simply put, I cannot imagine my life without Jeff Garber as my primary care physician! He was my doctor long before he joined the MDVIP program. He is always available, attentive and truly cares for his patients as if they were his family. He is living his passion and an amazing human being!!! He is a tribute to the medical profession.

My husband Ken and I have in the past three years both experienced major illness and injuries. Dr Garber was outstanding in his diagnois and treatment of us. He is knowledable, caring , compassionate and treats us as dear friends. He shows a true love for his profession. We are so thankful to have had Dr Garber as our doctor for over 20 years.
