Biography & Education

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.

In the past Dr.Garcia has recommended physical therapy or therapists, social worker, alternative assisted living situations, and food specialists for my 93-year old mother who has dementia. He is excellent in taking all the factors of my mother's health into consideration and then treats accordingly and I like how he gives her as a patient, his undivided attention so he doesn't treat her like she's just another 1 in a million patient. He shows he truly cares about his patient and I really appreciate that about Dr. Garcia.

At the time of our visit, there was another patient with the first name of [...] in the office. Dr. Garcia was accidentally given the medical records for the other [...]. We discovered this when Dr. Garcia was asking about one of her medications which I did not recognize. I ([...]'s daughter) glanced at the medication list on the chart and realized this was not my mother's list of meds.

I have had to initiate m y own care -- ie, request blood tests, help in understanding a RX. Also, many times my RX has run out because of a slowness to call in a refill request.

Dr. Garcia is the best. He is very knowledgable, excellent "bed side manner" and I feel confident I am in good hands under his care.

I've been really unhappy with Dr. Garcia. Every time I schedule an appointment, he not only shows up really late, yet he likes to be super direct with me about my weight. Yes I am over weight. No need for him to keep repeating that and yet not give me proper help with a swollen back. Also, after he had prescribed muscle spasm pills and wasn't curing the pain, I called his office if it was ok if I could take ibruprofren at a certain time and even till now there's still no response.I've had enough of his mistreatment! I am trying to switch Dr. now.

I saw Dr. Garcia about a small skin condition. He knew what it was and promptly decided what to do about it. He took care of it in his office, without needing to refer me to a dermatologist.

Garica recommended a anti acid after I had told him I had already tried many different types of over counter anti acids at my last two appointments. I have been recommend by two specialist for surgery and he recommends [...]. I am on [...] which he did not know. Does he do any research before the appointment.

I've been going to Dr. Garcia for years. He is knowledgeable, very personable and takes an appropriate amount of time with me on each visit. As individual heath care coverage continues to change, please be an advocate of keeping our own doctor.

The referral I received Dr. Garcia: "We think he walks on water!" This from well educated a couple in their 60's w/numerous health issues between them. I agree. He is an excellent doctor!

01/26/2017
This office has made me wait at least 2-3 days for refills every time (one time having to wait 6 days) and have consistently treated me as a drug seeker despite my doctor telling me he's never felt that way of me. I have never abused my medications but have been treated poorly by the medical assisting staff when it comes to my medications.

When I cked. in, I was not cked. in electronically so they thought I did not come for my appointment. I waited 45 min. & brought to the attention of the receptionist & she got me in. Just a simple mistake. It did not delay me.

came away from the visit feeling like we rushed through it. Only issues I raised were discussed. I mentioned that I saw the lab results from my recent blood tests, and that all tests seemed right in the range they were supposed to fall into. There was agreement on that and no further discussion.

Not enough time spent discussing possible DANGEROUS side effects to current prescriptions. And not explaining or even bringing up WHY my prescription was changed to a different prescription. I was never told why it was switched, from [...] to another blood pressure medication. Why did Dr. Garcia change that prescription? [...]

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.
100

11/16/2016
Dr Garcia is my everything. he is caring, sensitive to my needs, and keeps a watchful eye on my tests. I hope he stays with me to the time I become to much for him to care for me. Thank you. [...]

Dr. Garcia seemed puzzled why my feet are cold 24/7 with no change in color whatsoever but said I had [...] disease. I read what he provided about it and online as well and don't agree.
100

10/27/2016
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.
