I went in for a physical. It took so long to fill out medical history that ended up waiting for close to an hour to be seen. I recommend forms be mailed to patients. I liked? her relaxed style. Very knowledgeable. Good listener.
Chandler, AZ |
Be prepared to be charged as much as $650 for just an office visit. Very unaffordable.

Very personable and she listens and helps figure out how to help me.

I had been seeing my previous physician for years. I don't have insurance and was paying a lot of money for what I feel was nothing. I don't know if Dr. Gartenberg is just very thorough or if my other doctor was just awful but I am so glad I switched to Dr. Gartenberg. She took the time to get to understand my frustrations and help me fix my problems. She explained why I was taking the medications and what they did in my system. She was very nice and was warm and caring. I felt really good.
Phoenix, AZ |
I've been seeing Dr. Gartenberg at for several years. I actually met her at a previous office and followed her when she opened Modern Family Medicine. It is so difficult to find a primary care doctor that actually has knowledge of supplements and other types of medicine other than traditional. She has always been a caring and attentive physician.
