When I first learned I had an advanced breast cancer, I was overwhelmed. I was referred to Dr. Gardner by several local doctors and another from Boston. It was the best thing that has happened and I am grateful to them all. From the first meeting, Dr. Gardner took time to explain the depth of my condition and to make my care a priority. His office and entire staff put me at ease and held my hand through the next weeks of prep, surgery and recovery. If a modified radical mastectomy can be called "a breeze", this was a breeze because of all of them. Now, 6 months later, my surgery is a memory, chemo is almost over and I am well on my way to recovery and more thankful than I can say. In fact, during a recent visit, Dr. Roberts looked at a toe that was bothering me, made some calls and saved that toe too!! He truly cares for the whole patient, and the patient's family. I thank God each day that He put Dr. Gardner in my life when I truly needed him and I know he will always be there for me.

Dr Gardner and his staff were both professional and friendly and helped to make this experience one that was the best given the circumstances.
I have been in the care of Dr. Gardner for 11 years. I am an occupational therapist performing Home Health visits to many mastectomy and Breast Care patients and many years ago was exposed to his wonderful care provided to my patients. At that time I knew that I would need his direction as my mother had breast cancer and I told myself when I needed consultation and care he would be my doctor. WORDS cannot begin to describe the level of knowledge, professionalism, and caring. for every aspect of my needs. His quest for Innovative care and cutting edge technique are beyond description. The team in his office exemplifies attention to detail, expediency, professionalism, and keen awareness of emotional needs. it feels like a warm and friendly family in every aspect of care.. I know that I have found the best possible care with Dr. Gardner and his incredible team and this is also the opinion of many of my patients.
I could not have entrusted my health to a more professional and compassionate Team. I am very satisfied and I would give the highest recommendation to Dr Gardener and his Team.
Dr. Gardner is the best and his entire staff is amazing!! Just over 3 years ago, I had my first visit to Dr. Gardner. I had never been to any Dr./specialist where the entire team was so supportive and caring!!! I have been through a lot since then and seen them all many times throughout the years. The staff has not changed and everyone there has been wonderful to me. Dr. Gardner takes time with all of his patients and gets to know them. He truly cares! He explains everything and discusses many options. The same goes for Cheryl, Minty, Agata, Paula, and Patty! I've been through a lot and I'm happy with the outcome.
I have been a patient for over 10 years. I have seen both, Dr Gardner and the nurse practitioner Paula. They are both great, very professional, always talk to me through every procedure explaining everything that they do. The ultrasound tech Minty is also very professional, knowledgeable, she also explains everything to me, makes me feel comfortable. The front desk is also very professional, greets me by my name, they always call me to remind me of my appointments. I highly recommend this facility. They do ultrasound and biopsy onsite, which is very convenient.
On my way to my last visit with Dr. Gardner, while my husband was driving, I was reading through posts for that day on my Facebook page. Not coincidentally, my sister had posted the attached encouragement picture that morning. Interestingly, I thought of Dr. Gardner since the picture refers to God as The Gardener; although spelled differently than Dr. Gardner's name, the principal is much the same. I have gone through quite a process physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually during the past two years. The "Gardener" is why I am still here and The "Gardener" ordained my steps for me to be treated by Dr. "Gardner" and his staff.
I mentioned this to Dr. Gardner while I was there and wanted to share this with him, Minty, and staff. Dr. Gardner has been my physical pruner and in other ways, part of my spiritual pruning as well.
While I am at it, THANK YOU to Dr. Gardner and everyone in his office and on his surgical team. I am grateful beyond words for everyone of you and how I am treated by you all.
Each day is a gift and to treat it any less than that is a waste of what can be.
I have two scriptures which I have quoted many, many times during this journey: "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me." And "TODAY is the day the Lord has made, I WILL be GLAD and REJOICE in it!"
Have a great day. Enjoy each moment.

I cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful care and attention I received from all of you, both in the office and the hospital. I do know you are all a bunch of angels!! My case was not typical and I'm sure it was stressful for all of you, but your great knowledge and expertise brought me through. God truly blessed me when He sent me to you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will certainly recommend you to everyone!

Dr. Gardner's practice is a pleasant throwback to the times when doctors had patients instead of customers. Both Dr. Gardner and his staff treat you with what he calls the three "C"s: Competence, Caring and Compassion - and this is the most important a doctor can give you in your time of need. They go above and beyond duty (and expectations) to help you, to make you feel better. If you need a doctor in his field, don't look further - and if you need someone in another field, I hope you find someone like him.

Dear Dr. Gardner,
A little note to express my appreciation to you and your precious staff. You have made bilateral mastectomy a very smooth and tolerable experience. You are a very fine doctor with a warm and caring manner. Your staff has been most attentive and professional in every possible way, right down to assisting in scheduling appointments to accommodate the distance we travel. Again, thank you and may God bless you and your staff.

I met Dr. Gardner and staff today as it was my first visit to the clinic. I was very impressed with the level of care and the office atmosphere. I was also happy with my initial conversation with Shirley who was very organized and informative in regards to preparing for my first visit. I just looked at your website which I enjoyed as well and appreciated all of the current medical information available. I am happy to make this my new home for all of my breast health care. I will gladly share my experience with other female friends.
Thank you, Rosemary R.
