Very knowledgeable and caring Doc:)

Dr. Gardner is very thorough. The wait is ridiculous. I was there for 1 pm appt and left at 3:40. Other patients were out in the rooms across the hall two different times and seen in the time of sat in my room waiting. I understand great Dr.s but my time is very important as well.

July 30, 2019

The experience with Dr. Gardner was very positive, I have no issues with this part of my visit.

July 30, 2019

I know Dr Gardner is dealing with people who have more serious problems than I do. that being said, he takes the time to talk to me about my condition and I really appreciate that. I think every patient matters to him. Thats just my impression

I may have had to wait a little while to be seen in the office, however the service was for other patients who needed the time. Office visits are amazing and always give you every detail in simple terms and conditions. The staff was also kind enough to help me with my appointments with other doctors to help prevent me from my 7 hour round trip hours for my visits.
