I went in to dr gardners office with concerns about possibly having some type of throat or oral cancer. I explained everything to him and he didnt seem like he was listening at all. had a soft and quiet demeanor and barely looked in my ear nose or throat . He just suggested getting my tonsils out and then left the office. Barely spent five minutes with me. I am currently in the process of looking for a different ENT wouldnt suggest

Dr Gardner treated my daughter regarding ear infections. He explained the situation in terms I could understand and answered my questions thoroughly.

I would not recommend Dr. Gardner. I have damage to my inner ear. Dr. Gardner looked in my ears and said nothing. Told me to talk to another department. He walked out - I thought he was coming back. When the nurse came in and said I was done I asked if he had written anything about how my ears looked. She said no. I told her I needed to speak to him. She went to get him. He did not come back. He told her my ears were fine. Not only maddening, but unprofessional. (Staff was great though).

A very dishonest man. Attempts to give expensive and dangerous surgeries without providing accurate information to his potential patients. I will make sure to send everyone I know to a healthcare provider with ethical standards.

After 2 full cat scans 3 months apart, which insurance only covered one, on a 3rd visit after 2 bouts of medication did not work, took him less than 2 minutes to then tell me I have a deviated septum. Very frustrated as I now have a huge medical bill with RMENT for no reason. Failure to appropriately diagnose initially ended up costing me alot of out of pocket money
