Patient Comments (1)
in Fresno, CA |
Dr. Gardikas is an excellent surgeon, she truly cares about her patients. She takes the time to answer all your questions, and even if you think it's a dumb question, she doesn't. She talks with you like one person to another, never condescending, makes you feel important and human. If the need should arise again that I need another surgery, I am seeking her first. I think Fresno/Clovis is fortunate to have such a skilled and kind doctor as Dr. Gardikas.
