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.

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.

[...]He did not appear to have read my file and did not appear interested. It is my opinion he thought all I was there for was pain pills. I have serious issues with two areas of my cervical spine, two coronary arteries that are moderate to severely blocked and I am waiting to see if I need surgery before I can get stents put in. I have moderate lumbar back pain due to three different back surgeries. I agreed to see Dr. Garcia because I currently have numerous health issues I did not want to be without a doctor. I will either find another doctor in the clinic or find someone outside Providence.

Always quick and to the point! I cannot stand when a doctor beats around the bush. Dr. Garcia does not do that. He tells you exactly what he is thinking, and gives great options as well. He knows his stuff! I enjoy that I do not have to spend 1-2 hours at the doctor office, instead, I can spend maybe 20-30 mins and still have time to attend College, work part time AND have a social life!

I absolutely love Dr. Garcia. He always has a good attitude, never seems rushed, and I have found him to be a very genuine human being. Dr. Garcia is even someone I could see as being a good friend outside of the work environment. In my opinion, Providence Health Systems is fortunate to have a man of this quality on staff.

Visit was short, doctor was almost abrupt and perhaps projected an attitude of "Well its your age - its to be expected". I was not seeking sympathy but would have appreciated a little more tolerance.

It seems true with this and also my previous Providence providers that there is a culture or belief that the most effective pain medication should not be made available. I'm in my sixties, but I get the impression that younger people who might abuse these medications have tainted the waters for everyone. It would be nice to have one good day without any pain and discomfort.

I felt that the routine physical examination performed was rather superficial. Each year, physical exams seem to look at fewer aspects of my body and overall health. I wonder if the physicians are relying too heavily on blood work and patient reports to assess health.

Sometimes I feel like my provider doesn't quite remember me until he looks at my chart information, which is disconcerting. I would love it if he'd look at my chart _before_ my visit, rather than right in front of me.

Dr. Garcia seems like a nice doctor. I had to get another primary care provider from this office since the other two had left. I really don't like changing doctors and would like to keep the same one for more then a few years since I've had the same dentist for over 20 years. Which my first visit with Dr. Garcia was more than 20 minutes since I am his new patent and I felt like I was rushed in and out and didn't have enough time to express my medical needs.

This was my 1st visit to see Dr Garcia.(Dr [...] was my provider prior to this visit) Dr Garcia was overly concerned about my elevated BP and did not take adequate time to address any of the other issue's in my chart. ie: dermatological, arthritis in knee's, cyst on chest....

Dr. Garcia and his staff work together very well. In the past, at other providers, I would have to wait forever, only to be handed a pill and a thank you. The entire staff here would rather explain things and weigh pros and cons before making a full decision. I love this place!
