    I was once again so impressed with Dr. Gardiner's expertise and professionalism. Many years ago Dr. Gardiner gave me back my right arm that I could not use almost at all because of an elbow tendonitis that I left untreated for over six months. This year I injured both my right elbow and my left shoulder and I was in pain for months, and completely inactive to allow the healing process, but the pain and the immobility of my arms were still increasing. On a very short notice few days before I was leaving town for an entire month I called Dr. Gardiner office and I was granted a visit the next day which was so incredibly nice and carrying on the part of the office staff who squeezed me in. Dr. Gardiner took X-rays and explained me my options, including physical therapy and the new PRP therapy, but decided on the option that would be the most effective immediately, given that I was leaving. He gave me injections with cortisone on both arms, skillfully getting them exactly in the right spot and the next day I was already a different person! Two days after the visit I can finally use my both arms again, with caution as I am so used to hurt with most moves and I cannot believe that now I can do those moves without any pain. Thank you so much Dr. Gardiner and thanks to the entire friendly staff!

    I am absolutely thrilled with the care that I received. All staff treated me with dignity and care. At my first visit, Dr. Gardiner and his staff listened to the history of my pain and did a thorough examination. The cause of my pain was explained thoroughly to me with Dr. Gardiner drawing pictures of the area of my injury and explaining the reasons for my discomfort. A noninvasive treatment was tried first and when this was not successful, I was offered the option of surgery. I received superior surgical care and I could tell the difference in the way my joint felt almost immediately after the surgery. Within a few days, I was able to bear weight on the affected leg. I feel that my knee joint has been renewed through a simple procedure and I couldn't be any happier. I am very grateful to Dr. Gardiner and to his entire team!
