Excellent visit in total

I always have an excellent experience with Dr. Gardner. Even though the wait times are a little long sometimes I understand that things happen and some patients need extra time and care . Rhat being said everyone in both the MRI labs and the physicians office are always very polite and professional.

The wait is long but worth the time.

I appreciated the video appointment. Last year when I had an-in-office appointment, Dr. Gardner began my appointment 5 hours after it was scheduled. Not good for my blood pressure!For the video appointment he was one hour late, but at least I could get other things accomplished while I was waiting.Staff checked in, and were very nice, but they surely must get tired of apologizing for his tardiness.

All good except wait time to see Dr Gardner and his team , I understand Dr Gardner does a lot of surgeries and has only one day to do see patients .

September 03, 2019

Very forthcoming with my diagnosis.
