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.
