Excellent experience. Dr. Gardener even took the time to respond to my email questions after hours, and was one of the many reasons why we came to see. him. He is a top notch.

I am extremely satisfied with my experience at UPMC. Dr. Gardner and his team did a great job. Can't thank him enough for the excellent surgery and amazing post-op care.

This was a follow up check up to make sure there was no reoccurrence and everything was still good. Everyone was polite, kind and patient. A little more waiting then usual but stuff happens. Other times there wasn't so much waiting. I am glad that Dr. Gardner was my surgeon. He explained everything and why things were done the way they were.

I was very pleased to find such caring doctors and staff to help me with my medical problems. I feel confident in having surgery with Dr. Gardner and Dr. Hirsch, They both have helped to ease my fears and concerns....

Three years ago I was diagnosed with a Chordoma tumor and Dr. Gardener and his staff operated on me five times and saved my life! On the advise of Dr. Gardener I went to Boston Massachusetts General Hospital for Proton and Photon radiation treatments (2 1/2 month stay in Boston and 38 total radiation treatments) as a follow-up to my surgeries. My experience with Dr. Gardener and Dr. Snyderman (ENT UPMC) have been above and beyond anything that I could possibly expect. I am sorry that I was diagnosed with cancer, however, my family and I are extremely grateful that we met Dr. Gardener and Dr. Snyderman and their staffs of professionals!

The entire staff of the clinic and Dr. Gardner are wonderful. Lois and Michelle have been extrodinarily kind throughout my entire process. I was amazed after my surgery to see Dr. Gardner at my bedside after 9pm after what I'm sure was a long surgery day. All are definitely in the profession for the right reasons and truly care about their patient's outcomes
