He wanted to know what was likely causing my problem, so he ran some tests. He then prescribed a medication and gave me advice to drink more water and drink less coffee. All practical and good advice. If I needed an ENT again, I would definitely go to him.

Dr Gardner spent very little time with me. I saw him for a total of about 3-5 minutes and it was my first time seeing him. He really didn't address all my concerns either. He seemed too rushed to get to the next patient.

This was the 2nd time I have seen Dr. Gardner, and for different reasons. I would highly recommend him!! He doesn't tell you what to do, he reviews the options and discusses them with you to help you make an informed decision about your health care. On top of Dr. Gardner being so good, the office is efficiently run, and the staff is very friendly.

Dr Gardner is incredibly knowledgeable, and conveys his medical opinions in very "user friendly" terms. He discusses the treatment options frankly and asks the patient for input as he comes to a solid treatment plan. He is efficient, not rushed. He is a wonderful doctor, and I highly recommend him (and have to many other people).

The office staff was very nice and friendly. I arrived right at my appt time and I hate doing that because I still had new patient paperwork to fill out. The front desk lady was very nice. The medical assistant who brought me back was very nice and friendly too. Dr Gardner was nice and honest. He had a different opinion about treatment for my ear pain and pressure than my previous ENT. I appreciate his honesty. He said tubes and/or sinus surgery wouldn't benefit me. This was nice to hear because so many doctors out there do unnecessary procedures. He told me I would benefit seeing a TMJ specialist. I had a hearing and ear pressure test done. The lady who did it was friendly. I don't have anything negative to say about this office
