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.

I wasn`t given before surgery instructions, which caused a four hour delay in my surgery. this could have been prevented by telling me not to eat or drink any thing before surgery. This was a big inconvenience to me and my family , but i do feel the provider in took the right action in this matter and had me wait .

MY overall experience was great - however the receptionist & appointments staff need more training. This has been a problem ever since the offices combined.

I have been seeing Dr. Garvey since 1995, when I got my first pacemaker and he is wonderful. He is kind, considerate and is interested not only in your health care but also in your life. I am now on my 3rd pacemaker and all surgeries went well and scarring is minimal.
