in Houston, TX |
I came to this practice when I moved here. The women in the office are the typical " I am overworked and you problems are not important to me types" Long waits for the the doctor once they lock you up in the exam room. Now they changed my meds 2 weeks ago. My INS co needed more info. NO ONE has returned a call or made sure my previous Rx was re-filled. I would avoid this practice. The Doc is ok but lazy would be a compliment to his office staff. A room full of crabby no nothings.

Dr. Gardner is very good at what he does, but I have sat in the office for as long as 2+ hours to where I thought they all went home. I would recommend him especially if you are having trouble getting your diabetes under control. The office needs to schedule fewer appointments, so the doctor can handle them all in a timely manor.

Dr Gardner's nurse practicioner, Kimberley, interviewed me on my first visit. Asked all the right pertinent questions on initial vist. Collaborated with Dr Gardner to form a diagnosis of my health problems. Took time to cover all possibilities. Ordered pertinent lab tests to determine treatment plan.
