Verified Patient Reviews
Easy, informative appointment. 4 stars because i havent seen progress yet (i just started his process). I have knee problems and I appreciate him giving me PT exercises to do at home first and not gauging me for money telling me i need to come in for them.
Dr Garay was very professional, understanding and friendly. He was very thorough with my patient history and examination, and talked me through my back issues and possible routes of treatment. He also reviewed my x-rays as soon as they came back, and a nurse called to let me know his diagnosis instantly. I was completely relieved by the experience and would certainly visit again!
I have read other comments about the Dr. being great, but the office being disorganized. My experience was flawless - the staff were organized and helpful, no confusion, no waiting. Perfect experience with the office, and the Dr. was great. Thumbs up!
Dr. Garay was helpful and attentive.
I really liked Dr. Garay. He was friendly and dedicated enough time to address my concerns and talk through my injury One thing to note: His front office staff is truly awful. When I got there, they were very disorganized and showed up late. Very annoying when you're intentionally the first appointment of the day! At the end of the appointment, his staff added an extra zero to the end of my copay charge. Thankfully I noticed but it had to be reversed. Weeks later, someone from his office followed up with me to tell me they couldn't give me a prescription since it had been "too long" after seeing the doctor. After arguing, it was cleared up. In summary: Recommend the doctor but the practice is a hassle
Doctors that actually take the time to sit and talk with you and listen to you are rare. Dr Garay does just that. He seems to genuinely care. Highly recommend.
Dr. Garay was great and saw me right away. He diagnosed my knee problem and explained the options, was an all around pleasant experience!
Dr. Garay is so nice! Most doctors in NYC are very fast and quick to get you out of there but Dr. Garay takes his time and genuinely cares about your concerns. I do have to say, the receptionist was quite rude and I later found out she was the front desk manager. All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Garay. He's personable, considerate, and very knowledgeable
Hate getting injured but like that Dr. Garay does such a great job diagnosing and treating. Great off and staff.
Wonderful! I'm a runner and he gave a lot of great advice that helped me figure out how I should calibrate my exercise schedule so I don't injure myself further.
Dr. Garay was a great doctor, took his time, explained the process, and referred me over to another great doctor. really down to earth guy.. highly recommend!
He was very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend him.
Very professional and clean environment. Only issue is they need to match their schedule ( manual) book to that of zocDoc
Was seen immediately. He asked a lot of questions and spent a fair amount of time examining the area with pain. Gave me some options for further treatment.
Very experienced doctor and knew what he was talking about. I feel that I am in right hands with this doc.
Dr. Garay was great! He took the time to explain my lower back issues and made sure to answer all my questions. Would definitely recommend him.
it was very pleasant and professional.
Can't say enough about the quality of the visit and the results from treatment. Three different ailments with outstanding recovery over the past two years.
Always a pleasant visit with productive treatment.
very nice doctor, Highly recommend.
He was very thorough and had enough time to listen to my problems and walk me through his thinking on the diagnosis. I didn't feel rushed at all. He was very good about being realistic in what outcomes were possible, and was very good about giving me treatments that were easily obtained over the counter or stretching exercises i can do at home, rather than expensive treatments/prescriptions/etc. Doctor was great to work with. Office staff is disorganized, double booking him for a time slot, and not even being aware that the doctor was running almost an hour behind schedule!
It's always a pleasure visiting with Dr. Garay. Highly recommended.
This is my second time treating with Dr. Garay for unrelated injuries. By far it is one of the most positive medical visits I ever have to make. The staff is pleasant and friendly and the wait is nonexistent. I hate the injuries but like that this is my option to treat.
Dr. Garay and his staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Appreciate that they can fit patients in right away, especially in case of emergencies. Just wish they had the ability to take images onsite.
Very pleasant, professional and thorough...would definitely recommend Dr. Garay. Took me at the last minute as well, which was a relief.
He is very thorough and knowledgeable. He will take the time to explain to you what's causing your problem.
He was very professional and kind. He took the time to go over my condition, very thorough. I would highly recommend Dr. Garay.
