Thank you for giving my health back!

I am a new patient of Dr. Garcini, as of March of 2011. I am recently recovering from a hysterectomy. I am a 38yr old, who always put off these yearly visits, due to anxiety, and trauma I experienced as a young girl. But, my health was getting to the point I had no choice, but to find out what was wrong with me, and to get my bleeding under control. I am so grateful that I found Dr. Garcini! I not only found a very clean facility, and friendly staff, but a truly amazing doctor. He is very gentle and informative before, during and after your exam. When I made the decision to have a hysterectomy, I knew I could trust him, just by the way he took the time to listen, and give me all the info I needed for a healthy recovery! I recently went for my 1st run since surgery- it was the best I felt in years! I just want to take the time and thank you Dr. Garcini, and your staff for answering all my questions, being patient with me and all my anxieties, and when I needed you during recovery you always quickly returned my calls when I had concerns! Thank you for giving me my health back!!!

 


 

Caring & trustworthy - highly recommend 
I went to Dr. Garcini for a second opinion after many months of trying to decide what was the right decision for me. From my first appointment, my husband was welcome in the exam room as Dr. Garcini explained in detail my condition and my course of treatment. He took the time to answer not only mine, but my husbands questions. He was comforting, friendly, trustworthy, and to me the most important, experienced. I felt comfortable enough to ask him any questions that I had. It's been 2 years now and the care that Dr. Garcini gave me throughout my treatment and since then has never changed, he is always respectful of my concerns and wants to know my questions each time.

 


 

Dr. Garcini is very genuine and caring regarding any and all of my health issues. He recently performed a complete hysterectomy on me and explained all of the details in full, in order to make me feel completely comfortable and prepared for the procedure. I feel extremely comfortable with Dr. Garcini and his assistant Angela. Both are absolutely thorough with questions, answers, advice and follow up calls and appointments. I would and have recommended friends and family to his office and they also have been very confident with his profession. Thank you very much Dr. Garcini for listening, caring and resolving any issues that may have and/or arise. He takes that extra step to discuss in full and resolve issues, giving me complete confidence that he does care about his patients!!!!

 


 

Dr. Garcini has been my doctor for over 7 years, and I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family. He has a very pleasant bedside manner, and is very comfortable to be around. His entire staff is very friendly as well. I never feel uncomfortable when I have an appointment with Dr. Garcini.

Doctor Garcini is a wonderful doctor. He is so gentle. He always lets you know what he is doing or what he is about to do. He always takes the time to address any new concerns or problems. He never acts rushed or rushes you out. His staff is equally professional. I really enjoy having Dr. Garcini as my doctor. I give him my highest rating. 

 


 

Dr. Garcini has excellent bedside manner. He is a very calm individual, which alleviates anxiety and worry for the patient. In addition, he is extremely knowledgeable and informative about OB/GYN procedures and treatment plans. I wouldn't go to any other doctor!!!! Outstanding!!! 

 


 

Dr. Garcini was very thorough in his work-up for my abnormally, heavy and irregular periods. Being a very medically complicated individual, he was careful to consult with my other physicians about my care, which was very reassuring. Dr. Garcini took as much time as I needed to answer all questions to allow me to make the most medically appropriate decision for myself. I am doing very well and I am pleased with the results and so is he. I have always found Dr. Garcini to be an extremely professional, kind and caring physician.

I have suffered with pelvic pain for years with no relief. I was referred to Dr. Garcini by a nurse in the Recovery room at Silver Cross Hospital. I had just had yet another unsuccessful surgery for my pain. I saw D. Garcini a week later and found him to be caring, sensitive, and most of all confident that he could help with my pain. A month later he did surgery for me and I have been pain free, since then (other than post-op pain). At my follow-up visit he made me feel very comfortable, and explained everything to me. I would recommend him to anyone.

 


 

I went to Dr. Garcini for a second opinion after many months of trying to decide what was the right decision for me. From my first appointment, my husband was welcome in the exam room as Dr. Garcini explained in detail my condition and my course of treatment, which was a total laparoscopic hysterectomy. He took the time to answer not only mine, but my husbands questions. He was comforting, friendly, trustworthy, and to me the most important, experienced. I felt comfortable enough to ask him any question that I had. I just had my six-week post-op appointment today and the care that Dr. Garcini gave me throughout my treatment never changed, he was always respectful of my concerns and wanted to know my questions every time I saw him. I would not think twice about recommending him to anyone, in fact, I asked him for some of his cards to give to some friends that have asked for his number.

 


 

I strongly recommend Dr. Garcini to anyone who is looking for a gynecologist, he is the best doctor that I have had so far. The ER doctor initially had asked another gynecologist to take over my care, that doctor refused to treat me since I had HMO insurance and I was not her established patient. In the other hand Dr. Garcini agreed to take over care. I was very sick due to an unknown cause. Dr. Garcini ordered an MRI and due to this test and a D and C he was able to determine I had a fibroid (benign tumor). It was a relief for me since I had been sick for quite sometime and my PCP was not being very helpful at all. Even though she was aware of my symptoms and how sick I was she was not ordering any further testing, I had to ask her myself to order an ultrasound and she had only ordered a gallbladder ultrasound. Which did not help with my sickness. Dr. Garcini has done all the necessary tests without me having to ask for them. He is still treating me for fibroids and I am very satisfied with his great quality of work, he is a very friendly, caring and informative caregiver. If you have a question he answers all of them, my PCP in one occasion asked me to Google my question (which clearly is not an answer I expected from a doctor). I would not change Dr. Garcini since I have always had very satisfactory experiences with his care.

Abnormal PAP

The Pap test is an important part of our well-woman exams because it's the best way to detect changes in the cervix that could indicate cervical cancer. For the majority of women, the Pap test comes back normal. Even when the test does indicate a problem, often the cause is inflammation of the cervix or a vaginal infection, but you still need timely follow-up care.

Permanent Contraception

When you are done having children, Essure is the most effective permanent birth control available (even more effective than tying your tubes). Besides being surgery-free and hormone-free, Essure is performed in as little as 10 minutes with no slowing down to recover so you can get back to your family right away. Discover why women don't just depend on Essure, they love Essure.

Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

If there is ever a time when you need gynecologic surgery, it's good to know that there are now minimally invasive surgical solutions for most gynecologic problems. Dr. Garcini now performs 90% of his surgeries using these techniques. The reason is simple. These surgical solutions require either tiny incisions or no incisions at all. There is less pain for the patient, much shorter recovery times, less blood loss and far fewer complications - exactly what Dr. Garcini wants for all of his patients..

Heavy, Painful Periods

If heavy, painful menstrual cycles cause you to miss work or social activities every month, please talk with Dr. Garcini. He is a board-certified gynecology doctor with 17 years of experience evaluating and treating this common and very treatable health problem.

Pelvic Pain & Bladder Problems

Chronic pelvic pain not only hurts, it can be a major source of worry and keep you from leading a normal, fulfilling life. Even if you've been told that nothing can be done about your pelvic pain, we encourage you to schedule a visit. Our board-certified gynecology doctor, Francisco J. Garcini, MD, has 17 years of experience diagnosing and treating pelvic pain. He offers comprehensive testing, including in-office gynecologic ultrasound, to diagnose the cause of your pelvic pain. He will investigate your medical history and listen to you about your symptoms, previous treatments and anything else about your life that may be related.

Menopause

Menopause is a retrospective diagnosis. It is defined as the time when 12 consecutive months have passed since your last period, and it is a biological process that is characterized by a series of events that can start as early as your late 30s and last into your 50s and 60s. Physiologically, menopause is caused by the gradual decline in the production of estrogen by the aging ovaries. This state of estrogen deprivation is associated with hormonal, physical and psychological changes in your life; however, it is not the end of your youth or sexuality.

Robotic Surgery

Dr. Garcini is skilled and experienced with total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH). With TLH or the single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS), you can expect a much faster, easier recovery and less postoperative pain than with other approaches. Robotic da Vinci hysterectomy is the latest method that brings 21st-century computer precision to the procedure. The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System® is widely touted as today's most effective, least invasive surgical treatment option - an effective alternative to traditional open surgery. For you, that means improved precision, significantly less pain and a faster return to normal daily activities.
