What People Say About Dr. Michael Gartner, DO

Highly recommended -specifically pertaining to Dr. Gartner’s expertise related to skin grafts, special/microsurgery, hand/plastic surgery experience. Our relationship commenced circa late 2000/2001 during his medical resident training at NCMU (BURN UNIT) Trauma Center, located in east meadow, ny (prior to 9/11.) Dr Gartner’s professional medical experience most notably includes tenure at LONG ISLAND PLASTIC SURGERY in Garden City, Ny 11530, alongside, industry renowned plastic surgeons including Dr Kavei Alezadehi, Dr Alan Gold. Most importantly, Dr Gartner possesses a beyond unique ‘bedside manner’ as well as genuine philanthropic nature. He went above/beyond to coordinate a tour of the NCMU burn unit to assist me with my co branded business initiative during my tenure at Centra 360 as an Account Exexutive-collaborative endeavor which encompassed NCMU as potential recipient of burn unit funding/endowment. One in a million.

I showed up for a minor procedure and Dr. Gartner was delayed for over an hour, I left. I rescheduled for several months later and was told I would have to do an initial consult again. I did the consult and then, the day before my procedure was rescheduled TWICE and I was notified via text. The second time I called the office and he was delayed for more than 30 minutes despite the fact I called his office 1.5 hours before to confirm. This is not a way to run an office or a business. I am certain since my procedure is minor and going through insurance I am randomly rescheduled to the office's convenience because I'm not worth their time to actually put effort into showing up. I am beyond fed up.

When I first went in I was pleased with how amazing Dr.Gartner and his staff is. He was very informative and very understanding with what I wanted. At first I was gonna go 600CCs but he was honest about how it probably won’t fit and went to 550CCs and I don’t regret it at all ..The day of surgery I was a little nervous I went in a little Earlier and Vicki was amazing she helped me keep my mind off it and was just amazing and sweet. Let me not forget how clean they are . I am very happy with results Dr.Gartner is amazing at what he does. I felt no pain at all after surgery and for the rest of my recovery. I was so surprised because I am not very well with pain..I went out to eat the same day and was able to drive after three days I had a wonderful recovery and if I had to do it all over again I will !! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get cosmetics surgery

I have been looking at getting a breast augmentation for years. I kept looking, but no one's before and after pictures caught my attention. That was until I saw Dr. Gartner's transformations. I was amazed and by reading his reviews, I just knew I had to schedule a consultation. He was very patient and answered all my questions, even if I kept asking him the same thing. He truly made me gain the self-confidence I needed. I'm so glad I picked him and I would do it again in a heart beat!

My complete trust in Dr. Gartner was well warrented, he did an excellent job removing my lipomas. I felt confidence in him from the first consultation to the follow up visit. This was the first time I had an operation for anything and he eased any fears I had and everything went smoothly. The operation sites healed cleanly and are fading nicely. I highly recommend Dr. Gartner for his expertise and professionalism.
