The staff was friendly and kind (you don't see a lot of that in S. Fla.). Didn't feel like a number there. Was called into office at set appt time (which is normally unheard of). Dr Garrod was great. Took timeto explain and show me what was wrong. While visit was fast (in and out) I did not feel rushed with my time with Dr Garrod.

Very professional, he explained diagnosis clearly, gentle bedside manner, and his staff were all friendly, helpful and efficient. One of the best experiences I have had with a Boca Raton, Florida or Delray Beach, Florida doctor in 13 years.
