First Time patient and had a really good experience. After turning in the initial paperwork we were taken into the office in less than 5 minutes and did not wait long at all for the doctor to come in. Everyone wasnice and professional. The doctor seemed very attentive and we felt comfortable knowing he was very knowledgeable. We knew we were in good hands with him. The office really appears to be a "well oiled machine" and we feel fortunate to be a patient with Dr. Garza and his staff.

Cordial staff. I signed in and maybe waited five minutes and was called in. Vitals taken and another ten minutes before I saw the Doctor. All went pretty fast as it was an initial visit so tests were scheduled. I was very pleased. Extremely nice, knowledgeable and professional physician.

Dr. Garza seems to have a lot of knowledge but too rushed. Both he and the office seem to be disorganized. They had evidently misplaced my records and my appointment was over an hour late. My previous appointment was also overan hour late so it's a chronic problem. Even though the staff was friendly, I don't plan to return there.

Dr. Garza was great. His front desk could use additional staff. The poor girl up front was drowning in calls, appointments, reschedule calls, and checking people in without help.

* signed in - 30 min prior to appointment. * waiting 45 min w/o front desk acknowledgement. *notified front desk - I signed in 45 min ago and still waiting. * had completed all forms as instructed on line. * uponalerting person I was still waiting, was asked to complete in house forms. * informed person I already completed on line forms. Was told those were unacceptable and I needed to complete office forms. 1. Purpose of signing in - person there and waiting. 2. On line forms - useless if they are not going to be accepted. Front desk "bar" visit discussion might be postponed until later, after all patients are taken care of. Doctor and nurses - very professional and courteous. Visit 2 hr.
