I've been with Dr Ruben for years and truly love his style.

Dr Garcia and his stall are outstanding and go out of their way to provide excellent medical care. I would enthusiastically recommend his practice to anyone and if you are, you are the lucky one!

Zach who works with Dr. Garcia makes all the difference! Zach went above and beyond for my dad, who is a disabled Veteran. When I had questions or needed additional help or approvals, Zach was one that had it all under control. He made me feel confident I was in the right place for treatment for my dad. Because of Zach, I had a great experience seeing Dr. Garcia. Zach is way over qualified for this position and I am thankful he is using his talents here.

Met expectations.

January 2020 my husband ended up in ER-Corsicana. The results we needed to see an oncologist. Dr Ruben Garcia has an office in Corsicana,Tx one day a week & Athens, Tx . Lisa is Dr Garcia’s main nurse. God definitely lead us to the right people. Since then and 2 bladder surgeries, Dr Garcia is aggressive, definitely knows the issues with bladder cancer and hit the ground running. Lisa would consult with me if I didn’t understand the type of tests or any concerned questions I felt dumb to ask. He doesn’t shade the truth he’s open honest and a patient advocate to analyze and get patient on a road to recovery. Dr Garcia and Lisa truly have a gift helping and directing patients thru this cancer journey. I would recommend his office highly for their Organization, quick response time & compassion! Wherever his office is we will follow him.
