Dr. Garvey has treated me for over a decade, helping me not only with my cardiac arrhythmia but in negotiating the maze of other health care specialties are involved in my complex condition. I have seen dozens of doctors, some great and some not so great. The ones who stand out are those who manage to fulfill the role of scientist while maintaining a genuine concern for their patients' humanity. Dr. Garvey is such a person. No matter how difficult my medical predicament, I have always come away from my visits with Dr. Garvey with something useful, whether it be life-changing surgery, a better understanding of an obscure concept, or help dealing with the less stellar members of my health care team. If medical schools churned out more like him, we would not need health care reform.
