    I was very nervous about the surgery, and Dr. Garcia completely put my mind at ease. The surgery was quick and painless and I am so thankful to him for removing my lipoma. He is an amazing doctor and I would gladly fly in to Austin again for any procedure that I ever need done. Thank you Dr. Garcia
