I had a small spot on my lip and Dr Gardner told me he could reduce it and that it will get much better. After his procedure the scar got bigger.

I have a couple spots on my arm I am increasingly concerned about. I left two messages this week, which were not returned. I waited on hold today to eventually get thru, they didn't acknowledge my messages, then told me I could come in in April. No concern about what it going on with the patient...maybe if I go to a primary first they'll maybe get me in sooner. I had been a client for some minor mole removal, but consider me no longer a client. Terrible.

Dr. Garner began a Moes procedure on my 93 year old Mother that the pathology report called an actinic keratosis.This skin condition wouldn’t have killed her, but Dr. Garner’s procedure might have! An emergency room visit and a 3 day hospital visit caused an open wound to begin healing! Dr. Garner refused to make the trip across Missouri Baptist complex to stitch up my Mom, and wouldn’t find anyone to help her out The wound is now left to heal on its own...Wouldn’t recommend this doctor at all!!

Dr.Gardner not only unnecessarily cut into my face and created a life long scar for something that would have gone away with time, he ignored my requests for a simple phone call to ease my anxiety about the biopsy he insisted I needed.

My experience was bad. A BIG waste of money and my time! I went for chronic dandruff, dry skin on my face that I have had on/off for over 5 years. I explained all the products I have tried and failed. He did not even look at my scalp, he just handed me a piece of paper that had recommended products of which I have tried most of them. No samples or sincere concern for my problem, he could't be bothered. My real confirmation was when I went to another Dr. and he addressed my issues immediately.
