Dr Gardner is committed to excellence in caring for her patients. I feel very secure in her medical advice and support. She had walked me through the care of my wife who has passed. She personally called with her condolences and offered me any support needed to resume my health and healing.

Each time I bought my wife in to the office for medical treatment the staff and doctor made special arrangements, wheelchair, special access to office and on two occasions the Dr Courtney Gardner with staff evaluated my wife in our car because her was physically weak. After noticing low oxygen the doctor called for an ambulance. The dr followed up with the hospital ER to be sure all her medical needs were being met. She also gave me support too.

Dr Gardner understands me. She's great! I'm an "old guy," 70, post-prostatectomy with all the associated side effects. I am used to having a male doctor who Is at least my age or a little younger.
