About Dr. Andrew Garner

I have been a family practice doctor for 32 years, in Glens Falls New York. I grew up in the Midwest, in Ohio and Indiana.  I started out washing dishes in the hospital cafeteria, then became an Orderly in Bowling Green, Ohio in 1980 and worked my way up to a doctor.

I went to college in Bowling Green, Ohio and Medical School at Wright State University, School of Medicine in Dayton Ohio. I did my residency at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio in Family Medicine. I moved to Glens Falls, New York in 1990 and opened up a solo family medicine practice where I have been since then.

I truly enjoy being a physician. I count it such an honor and  privilege to be able to become involved in peoples lives and  being able to truly help them.

Dr. Garner has been my doctor for over 20 years. He is thorough, and understands what his patients needs are. He takes the time to listen to all his patients, and never pre-judges for any reason. He is easy to talk to and takes the time to listen and that’s important to me. I would give him 10 stars if it were possible. Highly recommended.
