    Dr. Gardner has to be the absolute best doctor I've had - hands down (which says a lot because my family doctor/PA are amazing, too). He is very compassionate, caring and educating. He walks through each test, carefully explaining each aspect and the implications. When I received a scary additional diagnosis, I could tell that he was constantly reviewing my charts (based on my access to My Chart). When I was 'out of the woods', the relief he showed only solidified that he cares deeply about his patients. I told him that he has to stay in practice through his 100's because I can't imagine this journey without his guidance.

    My doctors are great. I've had no problems with any of my doctor. I wouldn't trade any of them for anything.
