Do not go!!!

This is the worst doctor/doctor's office in Columbia. They are rude. The staff was making fun of my illness in the background while I was on the phone with one of them. The doctor only cares about money, does not care about his patients. Is not interested in your well being. Him and the staff do not want to help you. Please do not go here!! Anywhere else is better then here

Excellent

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Gardner. He is the only physician I've encountered in quite some time who actually listens and takes the time to answer any questions I might have. He is extremely easy to talk to, highly intelligent, and has a wonderful bedside manner.
