“After 20 years of back pain and trying every treatment available, I finally listened to the advice from Dr Garcia and found a successful method of controlling the pain. Yes, there is oftentimes a lengthy wait, but this happens because Dr Garcia listens to what you have to say and doesn't rush through the visit. You usually see the Nurse Practitioner, not the doctor, but the Nurses are knowledgeable and reasonable in that they will get the doctor to come into the exam room when you are worried about the procedure and have questions about what is to be done.
The front office staff have recently improved so now there is less wait time and more willingness from them to answer questions. I have seen the staff go above and beyond routine care to ensure the patients are comfortable. They offer a place to lie down or sit more comfortably if the patient appears to be in severe pain.
My philosophy is to choose the best doctor in town to address a specific medical condition. I have researched other doctors in town who provide the same service and determined that the education, training, and experience Dr Garcia has is outstanding. His personality and willingness to listen make him the best doctor in Hawaii for pain management for me.
If you have chronic pain and if you are looking for a long-term solution not just more drugs, then Dr Garcia is the best chance you have. Not every procedure we tried was successful, but Dr Garcia offered several options in a logical step by step manner to see what worked for me and when we finally found the best method to control my pain, I was ecstatic. So come with an open mind and a willingness to try different procedures to find the one best for you.”
