I have additional health issues that require attention at Vanderbilt. Dr. Garrett is watchful and mindful of the impact her treatment of my vocal cords interacts with the other issues. That is comforting, reassuring and contributes to my overall well being. I am confident in her evaluations and recommendations.

Again, Dr. Garrett is the best at what she does in the world. Vanderbilt is extremely fortunate she has chosen to practice at the university.
Patient | December 11, 2017

Of all the medical professionals I have seen for my disorder, Dr. Catherine Garrett provides a completely different technique. My experience of Botox injections is more comfortable than what I have gone through in Michigan. I sincerely appreciate her compassion, taking the time to listen and answer my questions/concerns. Dr. Garrett came highly recommended by a host of family and friends (who actually don't know each other) and all encouraged me to see her. I truly hope it works out that I am able to continue being treated by Dr. Garrett.

I have been seeing Dr. Garrett for S.D. for about 18 yrs. Dr. Garrett is an excellent Dr. and we are blessed to have a Dr. of her QUALITY AT Vanderbilt.
Patient | April 26, 2017

Dr. Garrett is the best!
Patient | April 26, 2017

Dr. Garrett is a gem! I have been coming to the Vanderbilt Voice Center for 26 years, and have infinite trust in Dr. Garrett's skills and competence. Although the procedure I have to have is very difficult, she has never failed me. In fact, a couple of years ago, I had the procedure at another renowned medical center where my husband was undergoing bone marrow transplant ... it did not work. I had to have the procedure repeated at Vanderbilt with Dr. Garrett. I have the greatest respect for her, and feel very comfortable and very secure in her presence despite the painful procedure I have to undergo. I would not trade Dr. Garrett for anyone else, anywhere!!
