  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Highly recommend

Been a patient for 25 years. Always took my medical issues seriously. Worked with me to come to diagnosis that finally explained my mysterious symptoms and never dismissed my medical complaints. Seen other medical staff (doctors, PAs, NP), all very competent. The office has always been helpful and friendly.

I SPENT 20 MINUTES ON HOLD WAITING FOR A PRESCRIPTION REFILL AND NO ONE PICKED UP THE PHONE. SINCE I WAS GOING OUT OF TOWN I DROVE FROM CLIFTON PARK TO ALBANY TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE SO I COULD BE SURE THE PRESCRIPTION WAS CALLED IN. AFTER SPEAKING WITH SOMEONE I WAS TOLD THE PRESCRIPTION WOULD BE CALLED IN WITHAN APOLOGY GIVEN. TODAY I WENT TO THE PHARMACY TO PICK UP MY PRESCRIPTION ONLY TO FIND THAT IT WAS NEVER CALLED IN. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS AND THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER SEEN. PLAYING WITH SOMEONES MEDS IS UNACCEPTABLE. COMPASIONATELY THE PHARMACY GAVE ME A 7 DAY SUPPLY OF MY DRUG SO I COULD GO OUT OF TOWN. THAT IS TRUE AND EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. YOUR SAD OFFICE COULD TAKE A LESSON FROM THE PHARMACY... SHAME ON YOU!!!

Dr Gardner is not just a quick processor who can easily listen and then pinpoint what needs to be addressed (as well as an appropriate action plan), he is caring, empathetic, and solution focused. He is one of the best doctors I have ever been to (and there are a lot of them).
