About Derrick J. Garcia, MD

  • Dr. Garcia is married with two children. He enjoys reading, soccer, martial arts, and salsa dancing.

I believe the key to medicine is listening. I try hard to make sure that I hear the patient’s story and understand their fears. Often I have found the act of listening to be as therapeutic as the medicines themselves.

    Dr. Garcia is fantastic, he always takes the time to listen and ask questions. I've referred many people to him and they all feel the same way.

    I have been going to Dr. Derrick Garcia for years. He is a thorough and excellent doctor.

    Everything went smoothly. I did not have to wait. Yet I received the attention I expected.

    Overall the experience was perfect. My only recommendation, which might have just been a slip - which is completely understandable - is that I was required to provide two urine samples today and was told of them separately after completing the first one which required me to wait for my bladder to refill at it’s own pace and extended the time I was at the practice. Not the end of the world but something that did have an impact on the rest of my morning. Again, not the end of the world just hopefully something to help make the process move as smoothly as possible.

    Easy and intuitive process as well as productive visit with my doctor.
