Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I went in for a wellness exam as my doctor was out sick. First, she refused to order the lab work that is included with a yearly wellness exam as my doctor forget to order them and was out sick that day. Second, she was not very friendly and just wanted to rush through the appointment. Later, I found out she not only billed for a yearly wellness, but also billed for a regular office visit which cost me almost $200 dollars extra. I will never go to this doctor again. She is not upfront and will sneak in whatever billing codes she can to get the most money out of the visit.

Provider listened to my concerns and conducted testing in needed areas (establishing care with multiple complex, chronic conditions). Understood my health profile and made good recommendations. Positive first visit

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.
