He was effecient. X-rays were done in office, so we were able to discuss my prognosis on the first visit. Doctor discussed my condition in a way that I could understand what had happened and what I could do about it. I walked away with peace of mind.

Dr. McGarry is extremely professional! He is knowledgeable, caring, and friendly. He did wonders with my injured elbow and made me feel comfortable with my surgery, recovery, and rehabilitation. I have optimism about my healing and ability to use my elbow fully again in the future.

Great doc! The office is very well known in the metoplex so its huge and super busy but they get you in quick and the doctors see you right away. Dr McGarry was thorough with treatment and was able to give me very detailed explanation for my diagnosis on an arm injury. Referred me to a great physical therapy office and will be going back for future issues. if any.

Dr McGarry is an amazing doctor ... Very personable, caring Doctor. I brought my two year old with me to follow up ACL Reconstruction Appointment and Doctor McGarry let him sit on his lap and was so sweet to my little boy. You don't see a doctor be that caring anymore ... Most Doctor treat patients like just a "number" ... Well! Not Doctor McGarry

spent more time doing paperwork (which i had already done once thru ZocDoc) then i did getting my injury looked at. Thought it was strange that they only did a X-ray VS MRI since my injury was a torn MCL. Doctor and staff seemed very nice though.

Dr McGarry was great! The office did feel a little like a production line - the waiting room looked like the DMV.

Saw Dr. McGarry concerning chronic knee pain. First let me say the staff are friendly and courteous. I filled out all my forms online before arriving and my wait time upon arrival was literally less than 5 minutes. I especially like the fact that I could have X-Rays and other treatments right there in the office. I feel very confident in the diagnosis given and Dr. McGarry is extremely friendly and easy to talk to. I'm feeling better already!
