For nearly 20 years, Dr. Andrew Garrett has treated people in need of physical rehabilitation and chiropractic care. While Dr. Garrett has treated patients suffering from a multitude of different injuries and rehabilitation needs, Dr. Garrett has dedicated a large part of his practice to treating patients who have suffered on-the-job injuries. Many of Dr. Garrett’s patients are federal workers who have claims that must be asserted through the Department of Labor – Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs. Dr. Garrett is well-versed in navigating the claims process and helping his patients get approval to receive the care they need.
Dr. Garrett has a strong professional commitment to ethically assisting patients in obtaining appropriate treatment and avoiding surgical intervention when possible. He has a particular interest in clinical neurology and neurophysiology, and has over 300 hours of post-graduate training in neurology and orthopedics. Dr. Garrett is an advocate for aquatic therapy and the use of virtual reality in physical rehabilitation – both of which he has personally used when rehabilitating from his own injuries.
In 2023, Dr. Garrett was recognized as a Top Doctor by Best in Texas Magazine and named as a Pinnacle Professional Member of the Continental Who’s Who Registry. Dr. Garrett serves on the Executive Board of the Dallas Labor Council and the Executive Boad of The Doctors Guild of Texas – Local #4.
Dr. Garrett is a proud veteran of the United States Army. The Army brought him to Texas from his beloved Minneapolis, Minnesota – he enlisted in 1991 and served at Fort Bliss in El Paso. After his service, he played football for the University of Texas at El Paso. He received a Bachelor of Science in Public Health from UTEP and a Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker University.
Over the years, Dr. Garrett has completed five marathons, one Iron-Man triathlon, six Iron-Man half-triathlons, seven duathlons, multiple Olympic-distance triathlons, and at least 20 half-marathons. He even qualified and competed on Team USA in the Duathlon World Championship – Long Course in 2016.
Today, when Dr. Garrett is not treating patients, he can be found on the golf course, cheering on the Minnesota Vikings, Twins, Wild, and Loons, and enjoying his favorite pastime – spending time with his grandson, Zach.
