Dr. Gardner is by far the best provider that I have seen for my particular condition. I totally trust him with my care. He takes the time to explain your condition and the treatment options. He is kind, patient, and compassionate.

They were surprising prompt in making me an appointment. I understood everything they told me and what I needed to do to help them go forward with the next step.

Dr. Gardner has consistently shown expertise in the field of neurology, and we respect his services. We do not enjoy sitting in his waiting room for 1 1/2 to 2 hours each visit.

Paul Gardner, MD. saved my life. Very caring, gave choices, answers all questions. Hospital daily checks after my surgery. There also for my husband who had emergency brain cancer surgery, to understand it, options, assured us the MD already scheduled to do his surgery, in this practice also was fine for the job. He was. It went well. Thank you Paul Gardner, your awesome !!!

I wish all medical professionals were as concerned about the patients as Dr. Gardner is about his patients. I am thrilled to have Dr. Gardner as my doctor for this ailment. I would not trust any other Doctor to do what he did for me.

The provider was a bit behind on appointments but i trust him very much so waiting a little extra time to get the best care does not bother me.
