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.

Dr. Garcia is a patient and kind physician that listens to all your symptoms before making a decision as to a treatment plan. His staff is highly personable and remember not only your name but your specific ailments and past treatments. I highly recommend Dr. Ruben Garcia and his whole staff.

Dr. Garcia literally changed my life! I have spent years in pain and having to plan everything I do around the proximity of restrooms. After being misdiagnosed by other Dr's and an OBGYN who specializes in women's urinary systems, Dr. Garcia knew exactly what the cause of my problem was. He performed my bladder suspension surgery and it's the best thing I've ever done! Many Blessings & Thanks to Dr. Garcia!!!
