There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

Dr. Gardner is a very compassionate doctor. He helps you understand the problems I am having and the ways it can be treated. He discusses both the pros and cons of every decisional. I have a very complicated medical history and he always helps me through things.

I have been having the same symptoms for a couple of years and still have no diagnosis. I only find out what isn't wrong with me. I am feeling worse and worse and can not get help. Evidently my illness does not fall within the constraints of accepted medicine.
