Dr. Gardner is excellent.

Julianna is wonderful, friendly, concerned about my condition, works over time to get me the test and care I need. Thank you very much. Dr Gardner is just a great person and Dr. tells me just what I am going through and asks what if anything I need.

The care from the dr was adequate.

My grandfather was admitted to the hospital while I was also at my visit. The staff worked with me so that I was able to run to another part of the hospital and check on him before getting me in to see Dr. Gardner. I am very thankful for that.

I was very appreciative of the quick responses I received from Dr. Gardner's office when I asked them a few questions prior to my appointment via the UPMC Health Trak website. Also, even though there was a wait time to see Dr. Gardner for my appointment I want to say that I didn't mind at all. I can appreciate how busy he is and know that he will spend as much time as needed with me for my appointment once he is able. Thanks!

I drive from Louisville,KY to see Dr Gardner. I would not consider seeing another Dr. He is always very kind and calm. He never seems like he is rushed when he sees me and spends time explaining everything. I have to wait longer in his office due to the fact that he is taking care and seeing patients with serious Neuro problems. He may have to spend more time with someone due to the complexity of their neurological problem, so I in turn may have to wait a little longer. UPMC is very lucky to have him on their staff.

I highly recommend Dr. Gardner. He is an excellent doctor who listens to and respects his patients.

May 26, 2015

Dr. Gardner shows true concern for what you have gone through. I heard he was one of the best in his field, and since my surgery was unexpected, I could not have asked for better results.
