The appointment with this provider, a surgical oncologist, was a referral from my dermatologist. It was the initial visit, and resulted in a scheduled surgery. Dr. Garreau was extremely thorough, clearly outlined and explained the pending surgery, and the proposed post-surgery care.

From the 1st phone call my husband made through the visit with Dr. Garreau, everyone was very responsive, professional and personable. Dr. Garreau spent over an hour with me and my husband discussing medical reports (ultrasound biopsy & pathology) and explaining possible surgical procedures and outcomes.

I think it would be helpful to know exactly how long each office visit/hospital visit "should take", for ride scheduling purposes. I found it a "less painful" experience due unto knowledgeable and friendly staff. Thank you.

In the exact words of my Mother who is [age removed], "Dr. Garreau is the best Doctor I have ever seen". As her care giver I totally agree, Dr. Garreau is a gem and my Mother looks forward to her next appointment.

Such a good experience. I'm glad I was referred to her. Kind, knowledgeable, great listener. It's obvious she really cares. I do wish she had more clinic hours at Meridian Park Hospital however. I would have liked to have seen her there at three months post surgery, but had to wait 6 due to her limited schedule.

Dr. Garreau was very friendly and I could tell that she had reviewed my file before hand. She asked questions about how I had done with the biopsy and showed me all the imaging taken from mammogram and ultrasound. She answered all my questions about the tumor and surgery. I appreciate how she took into consideration some personal events upcoming and assured me the surgery could wait until the summer. Her scheduler was also amazing In finding a good day that worked for me when I would have childcare.

I say extremely likely that I would recommend this provider, but since she is an oncology surgeon I would hope no one I know would need to see her. If you know what I mean
