Our Patients' Reviews

  • I want to thank Dr. Gardner and Nicky for such a comprehensive exam. It is refreshing to know that at his office you are treated with respect and compassion. The office took the time to go over my concerns, ask questions and get as much information as they could regarding my symptoms and issues that concerned me and expressed the issues and symptoms that they needed to focus on first. In an age where insurance seems to dictate the care you receive that is not the case with Dr. Gardner and his staff. You are placed first and I felt at ease leaving his office knowing that he has my mental, physical and emotional health cares in mind when he is treating me. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a great doctor.

  • My mother has been going here for about two to three years. Dr. Gardner and his staff are very helpful. I knew he was going to be a good doctor when, on the first year on Christmas Eve, he called us back to adjust my mother’s medication. Not often do the doctors call patients back. Most of the time, it is the MA’s. The nurse practitioners also show a lot of concern. They are very caring and patient. Scheduling is very open and they work with you. Thank you for your service. My mom’s insurance changed and the provider is not in network, but we will be paying out of pocket. That’s how good your services are. Keep up the good work, Dr. Gardner’s office.

  • I have been attending the offices of Dr. Gardner now for some five years or so. During all of my visits, I can only congratulate both Dr. Gardner and his entire team for the way I have been treated. My appointments, although sometimes long, can mostly be attributed to the care and attention Dr. Gardner gives all of his patients. You are never rushed. His diagnosis and prognosis are always carefully explained to you, and any medications and changes to prescriptions are always minutely detailed out, and any side effects and problems associated with the drugs are always discussed. Having a life-threatening disease is difficult enough as it is, but Dr. Gardner’s bedside manner, cheerful demeanor, knowledge of subject matter and professionalism shine through . . . and the dreaded visit to the doctor’s office is never an issue.
