I found Dr. Garbis to be very knowledgeable about the shoulder surgery I required. Dr. Garbis was my 2nd opinion and I decided to have him preform my surgery. If I had a question or concern, one of Dr. Garbis's staffwould return my call or email within 12 hours - including Dr. Garbis, which I found surprisingly refresing.

I had a painful shoulder injury. Dr Garbis sent me for an X-ray upon arriving at the hospital so he could have the relevant info before seeing me. By the time I walked back from X-ray, he had the results andwas immediately able to ascertain the issue. He resolved quickly with a cortisone shot and within a day, my shoulder was 90% back to normal. The whole process was extremely efficient.
