I have been with Dr. Garcia and this office for over 34 years and I love this office and the staff, everyone is so kind. Jan Ely is awesome and is always concerned about how I have been doing and she remembers my issues from last time. Dr. Wells is really nice too. Love this office man, not going anywhere.

  I love the staff of river city. My whole pregnancy went smoothly with these great people. Kendra Gillespie is a gem of a person, she treated me so well with all the complications I had. The sonography lady gave a detailed explanation of the baby parts. I loved both of them…On delivery day Gillespie took utmost care of me even when it’s 10:30 pm in the night and nurses in Baptist helped me for safe delivery. I would recommend this place for people who are expecting babies❤️
My sincere thanks to doctor Gillespie.

  I took my elderly neighbor to this office, they were all kind to her and treated her kindly. They were amazing and work with you to make sure your appointment time works for you a well as them and they don’t leave you sitting there like many doctors office’s do. I will definitely recommend them during these unsettling times.
