We first met Dr. Garwacki when my husband, Brian, became a physician at Sheppard Medical Clinic in Burnet, TX in September 2001.
When Brian relocated and opened Burnet Family Practice on the square in November 2003, Dr. Garwacki made the transition with us. He had the most dry sense of humor, and would often come out with some very funny anecdotal comments that would leave all of us laughing as he walked away straight-faced. :)
More often than not, Jessica or I would have to go and knock on a patient door and let him know his next patient had been waiting for a bit because he was still visiting with the previous patient - he never made anyone feel that he was too busy or rushed to see them.
He was one of the most knowledgeable physicians that both Brian and I had ever met. There are many times that he and Brian would talk over difficult cases and he would say, "Well, what I would do..." He was always willing to listen and offer advice.
Overall, Dr. Garwacki was one of the best men that we have had the privilege of knowing in our lifetime. He was kind, compassionate, and LOVED practicing medicine and helping others. When he retired, he was greatly missed.
This world is definitely a "lesser" place without him in it. We are so sorry for your loss. He was a great man and we are proud to have called him our friend and mentor.
Brian and Sharai Kingston
