My goal is to partner with my patients to assist with their healthcare needs and to improve their quality of life. In order to do this effectively, I believe it is important to take the time to help patients understand their condition, tests and treatment options.
I worked in health care quality improvement for 13 years prior to making the decision to go to medical school and it was that experience, particularly working with primary care offices, that reinforced my desire to help patients on the front lines. While I grew up outside of Chicago, my husband and I have lived in the northwest for almost 20 years. We have two children who keep us busy every day! In our free time, we love to try different restaurants, read, hike, and travel. I am also an exercise junkie and love to try out new workouts.

Reviewed on September 17, 2018 I was very impressed with the doctor. She has great bedside manner. She knows things that I would expect the social worker to be the resource on. Very impressed. I'm sad that I cannot have her as my PCP after i move!
Reviewed on August 28, 2018 Dr. Garrard is a sweetheart! I first found her to be very efficient & understanding.
Reviewed on July 24, 2018 Good.
Reviewed on June 21, 2018 No medications required. No follow up care needed from her.
Reviewed on June 18, 2018 Only reason i gave a 4 for that question about including me in a decision about my treatment is after we came to an agreed conclusion, she called me back a little bit to inform me that she had overridden the original prescription. Now i cant say it was bad or good( i have yet to try it out) but it felt odd getting a call saying that what we had discussed was just thrown aside out of concern for my well being( sounds stupid but just tell me no when I'm there.) Great doc and i will go back for sure. 10/10
