Dr. Gardner is wonderful, as is his entire staff. In particular, Lois Burkhart, the nurse coordinator, went out of her way to make me comfortable, and even sat with me for quite some time while waiting for Escort to take me to the lobby since it was after 5 pm and the office staff were gone for the day.

Dr. Gardner is an outstanding Dr. I have the utmost confidence in his assessment of my medical condition.

I come to UPMC from Louisville, KY to see Dr Gardner and have my Neuro care at UPMC. Have never had anything but great experiences there. I have been an RN for 35 years and have worked in many hospitals across this country. UPMC is a great hospital and its staff is top notch. Everyone from housekeepers to Doctors have been wonderful.

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.
