Biography

Gregory Garcia, M.D., chose to become a physician because he loves the interaction with his patients and the sense of satisfaction he gets from helping them cope with their illness. “As a doctor, I believe my most important role is to be the leader in the overall health of the individual while being compassionate to their needs.”

After earning his medical degree from the University of St. Tomas in Manila, Philippines, Dr. Garcia completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, Ill. He is board certified in both internal and geriatric medicine.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Garcia means well and is willing to work with me but when I come in for my appointments, which are usually his first of the day, he does not have the current questionnaire that I completed a few days before on MyChart and is not in tune with the medications that I am taking. I have tried using MyChart to email in questions to find my email has not been understood and the information I receive is helpful or complete so I have to send another email to clarify and try to get a resolution. I feel he is to busy to provide the kind doctor patient relationship I am used to.

without madical recorders he cut my pain meds, he never examed me, then on the third visit he cut off all my pain meds and made me feel like I was a pill seeker. I've been on these meds for almost 18 years, for chronic pain with more than one Doctor, I've never been treated so poorly by any Doctor as this one. I will not recommend Providence to anyone. this Doctor was uncaring and unfeeling and showed no sensitivity toward me in any way.

10/26/2016
I am a new patient that moved from [...] to Oregon in July. It was a long wait to see my new physician. It is a challenge to get re-established. I think my wait was almost 2 months and I needed refills on my prescriptions. This was of concern. Now that I have a new doctor it will be better. He referred me to a specialist who just happened to have one opening this month. The next one was in January. I don't think my eyes could have waited until January.

I mentioned my 2 daughters. Our youngest daughter is adopted and has down syndrome. These are SOME of the comments made by Dr. Garcia. "Why would you adopt a baby with Down Syndrome?" "Where did you get her." "That seems like a lot of work." "So you have one that is yours, and one adopted."

bad experience. went in to apt to see what was needed to help me get over a terrible cough. came home with an antibiotic. took it for 6 days with no improvement had to beg for a chest x-Ray. got no results on my chart. end of the next day got results, no phenomi. asked for a new antibiotic, for 2 days, they gave me the same Rx that I had already taken for 8 days. no Drs available to see on Monday, dr [...] and Garcia were both on their days off and booked up when they are there. nurse left a message for me to call her back on my home number, in the middle of the day. they have my work number and my cell number. when I got home at 4:30 I got the message to call, and got no satisfaction at all. called the urgent care in Sandy, got right in and have 2 new rx's. I am pretty sure I will not be back to that clinic. all 3 Drs that I have seen there were unsatisfactory, and did not seem want to fix the problem, just push pills.

I was calling in for a physical check up and when I arrived at the office, I was told that the appointment was a follow up appointment. It might because I was way due of my follow up appointment in the computer system but I do expect the front desk would schedule my appointment with common sense.

I like Dr Garcia because he knows what he is talking about. He shows great concern for my health. He forces me to get things done. I would not otherwise do that. I just wish I had more time to have other problems examined. A 20 minute visit is not enough. I only go to the Dr. if I have multiple problems. I also wish he was open after hours so I wouldn't have to miss work. [...]
