I left my appointment feeling frustrated and irritated. I felt as though the doctor couldn't wait to get out of the room and just did not want to be bothered with me.

Wrong location of CT scan on order causes delay; 2 hour wait for 10 min scan causing me to be late to my appt with Dr Gardner and 2 hour wait in exam room with no one checking in or updating us on why such a long wait

Dr Gardner and staff were very nice and informative.

Dr Gardner did surgery on our daughter together with Dr Snyderman and Dr Tyler-Kabara. We could not have wished for a more competent or personal team of surgeons. They were simply amazing and we are very happy that we decided to come all the way from Europe for this surgery. Both before the surgery and after they were reassuring, competent, easy to understand and straightforward, and most importantly did an amazing job at the surgery.

dr gardner is an excellent dr.

Dr. Gardner was pleasant to speak with. He answered all my questions and listened attentively to my questions. He spoke in clear terms and asked several times if I understood what he was saying. It was a video conference call and it was very convenient and saved me a 16 mile commute into Oakland.

we drove 3 hours to get to our appointment and got there 2 hours early just to be sure we were on time, only to have to sit and wait 4 extra hours on top of that because of everything being very late. we didn't get home until after 10:30 pm.
