My Son Seriously Fractured his hand on Saturday evening, He and I spent over 8 hours in the Brandon ER resulting in not being seen due to hos. having internal issues. left to TGH urgent care now Sunday morning. I called Dr. Scott S. Gargasz office Monday morning at 10:15 explaining to a staff member what the X-Ray showed and I asked when can I get him seen, She asked how does 1pm sound. I expected to hear 3-6 weeks. I am so beyond words of gratitude to all the Staff and Doctor as they are all kind, sincere, and genuinely care. Dr. Gargasz was absolutely superb, explained in detail what condition my sons hand was in and we are set for surgery Tuesday. Dr.Gargasz was patient, clear in explaining everything, and did not rush us at all. He even apologized for making us wait, which I explained I called that morning no apologies, We are grateful. I will give another review following the surgery as It's so important to take the time to give good reviews.

Wait was long due to first time patient paper work. But once the information forms were completed, I only waited a few minutes more to see the doctor. The staff were courteous and friendly. Dr. Gargasz was very informative and answered all my questions and at no time did I feel rushed.

My son had a serious crush like injury of his left hand/wrist. He provided several hours of skilled surgery and although early in recovery he was fantastic with spending time post op to explain finger by finger what he did to fix his fractures. Its not over yet, but we feel very confident in his recovery due to this mans skilled hands.

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Gargasz's since 2016. He had wrist pain that stopped him from doing things. When we scheduled the appointment he was able to be seen in less than a week! The office was very nice & the staff members were kind and knowledgeable. My husband had to have an injection in the office and Dr. Gargasz made him feel very comfortable. Dr. Garagsz was very professional, but he was also personable! Overall, we had a great experience!

It started with a roofing nail in my foot, walking to his front door, which was locked. When staff open told me it was their lunch break, they dont open until 1 pm. and shuts the door in my face. At exactly 1:00 i go inside and theres already 5 or 6 people waiting. How did they get inside before 1? The office smelled like urine. My appointment was 1 pm, i waited until 1:15 and left.

After receiving and providing my MRI results showing a torn ligament to this doctor, he insisted I needed physical therapy or a shot. After a second opinion, I am now scheduled for surgery for a torn ligament/osteoarthritis. Talking about milking instance companies.

Horrible doctor. 6 months after being sent here by a primary care physician for surgery to remove calcified growths which developed after an injury he admits he never read the primary care referral. Then he tries to cover his incompetency by insisting it's rheumatoid arthritis and that there was never an injury as though he some sort of psychic. This injury would cause arthritis to a 10 year old. This is not the place to go with an injury, Gargasz appears to be untrained in this area.

I posted a review about Dr. Gargasz right after my wrist arthroplasty in January and wanted to follow up 9 months later. My wrist healed great and I have no pain and am able to function like 30 yrs ago! It's the best thing I've done and Dr. Gargasz did an excellent job. By looking at my hand and wrist, there's no way to tell that I surgery! I'm on the verge of having a knee replacement and wish that Dr. Gargas could do that as well! He has a great personality and did excellent surgery!

My overall experience with Dr.Gargasz is great. But the advanced hand and plastic surgery center in Westley Chapel is the absolute worst. I've been here over an hour waiting. There is a full waiting room. When I first walked in there wasn't even seating. The lady at the front desk is rude. I had to drive over an hr to get here, only to wait over an hr. I wouldn't recommend this practice to anyone. I had problems the 1sr time with being scheduled on a day Dr wasn't here. But the Dr is great.

Excellent doctor! He is very meticulous and caring and does not rush into surgery if there is another way. I had broken my wrist (distal radius fracture) and he put a splint on right away after the Xray. I was very lucky as my wrist ended up healing on it's own. He also did Carpal Tunnel Surgery on my right hand and I was extremely pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend this Doctor.
