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.

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 am amazed at the care Providence provides. All the inter-related computer connections are tremendous. NY, where I used to live, has nothing like this. Test results on line, the ability to email the Dr, I just feel sooooo cared for. Thanks

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.

[...]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.
