What Our Patients Say

Dr. Garoon is a unique health care professional. He is the most dedicated and hard-working doctor I have ever had and the most candid in dealing with each patient. I had a medical emergency on his religious holiday and even though he is a devout person, came and opened the office just to take care of my needs.
