I liked Dr. Garcia but I realize that he is only a gate way to other labs and tests. It's too bad that he is with Optum as I am fast loosing confidence in your company


great Doc makes me feel like he cares for his patients, usually on time


Michael is responsive to my questions and discuses procedures in terms that I can understand.


Dr. Garcia is an amazing man and doctor. He gives his patience respect and always listens to our concerns and helps us look for solutions or outcomes that will work for us. He is a very patient and courteous man, and we would not change anything about him. We have followed Dr. Garcia when he was in the South Valley, Montgomery and now at the Journal Center. We would follow him anywhere in Albuquerque. Thank you, Dr. Garcia, for your dedication to your patients.


He is a very caring dr And takes good care of My husband


Listening to you. Caring!


I know Dr Garcia for 5 years. I enjoy my conversations with him. I believe he's a very capable doctor. Also the big thing is I feel very comfortable with him.


easy to talk to


Very caring and concerned. Always takes his time and makes sure to answer all my concerns.


He was very personable and took time with procedure and had me return to complete procedure so as not to do damage my ear. I went in for ear pain and wax buildup.
