She is very thoughtful and listens and answers the questions that I ask. It was a nice and unexpected surprise that she fit me in on the same day of my husband's appt. and saved us a another trip this week of 30 miles one way. She has also helped me with a knee that has been hurting for the past 2 years, I'm thankful that the pain has been cut back big time.

She is professional and knowledgeable, but lacked in caring. I marked I was sad on the intake paperwork and told the nurse my husband has cancer and neither the nurse or doctor asked anything about it. It was such a disappointment as it was not easy sharing in the first place and to not have them care was negligent.

Dr. Gardner is through and gentle. She answered my questions. I’ve gone to her for several years. However, I would recommend that you never let her nurse give you a flu shot. It is too painful. Go to Walgreens, Walmart find someone recommended. I’ve been spoiled by a nurse who never hurt me. This one is too rough.
