    How was your appointment with Dr. Garas?

    Jun 21, 2022
    I have seen Dr. Garas twice in the office where he has given me injections in my thumb for severe arthritic pain. He is so professional, knowledgeable, reassuring, gentle, and explains everything. He and his staff are the best! I would recommend Dr. Garas to everyone I come into contact with.
