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.

I didn't feel like there was any getting to know me or my history. Perhaps my records hadn't been received yet as my first ever appointment with Dr. Garcia was made within the same week. It made me feel like it wasn't important for us to connect.

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. [...]

I had a bad flu. I coughed for 2 days and lost my voice so I went in to see Dr. Garcia. He was very unfriendly, unsympathetic and uncaring. [...] I needed a strong cough syrup so I can sleep at nights and don't cough as much. But what Dr. Garcia planned to give me was just [...] until I requested a stronger cough syrup so I can stop coughing at nights. Anyway, I was very disappointed in his service. It seemed like he didn't care about what I was going through. Over the years, I have seen many Dr. and most of them are very wonderful but not Dr. Garcia. He is one of the worst Dr. I have ever seen in my life. I am glad he is not my PCP and I hope I don't have to see him again if I ever need a Dr. at the clinic.

I feel Dr. Garcia is aware and sensitive needs. At my last visit I wasn't aware of a test result that was rather alarming. I received the result in MyChart after the visit. i was concerned, called the office and received a phone call several days later and also an email from Dr. Garcia. It was the Thanksgiving holiday so I appreciated the response.

We filled out the patient questionaire but I really doubt anyone looked at it before they saw me because I was asked the same questions sometime atleast three times, ie medications, allergies. I would strongly suggest someone look at the questionaire before they see someone, otherwise why waste the time completing the questionaire in the first place.

I was very frustrated after seeing Dr. Garcia. I made an appointment because I was having sinus issues that were causing headaches. He ASSUMED I have allergies and told me to take the nasal spray I had. He then told me to continue to take Excedrin migraine for my headaches. I would have appreciated it if he would have looked into the root cause of what's causing these ailments instead of just telling me to take some OTC drugs. [...] The appointment was scheduled very last minute. While I'm grateful that I was able to be seen in such short notice, I felt very rushed to get out of the office.
