Always pleasant and easy to talk to. Generally seems to care about my health and how my surgery affected me.

the only complaint is having to wait 3 hours to see the doctor

June 28, 2016

Dr. Gardner is articulate, professional, and direct. A good communicator. A good listener. He is at the top of his field, but not arrogant. I'd let him date my sister.

Great doc to talk with - easy to communicate and respectful toward my nursing background.

June 07, 2016

Not only did Dr. Gardner do what other doctors said couldn't be done. He gave me my life back.

May 10, 2016

Dr Gardner is an exceptional Nuerosurgeon and his care for me five years ago during two skull based craniectomies is the reason I am here today. I travelled from Connecticut after an unsuccessful surgery to be in Dr Gardner's care. I have come back ever since for follow up appointments. I am truly thankful to be in Dr Gardners care.

Doctors Gardner, Challinor, Snyderman and staff seemed to have covered every detail of my pituitary problem. I trusted my life to these people and they gave me 110%. Awesome people.
