Ratings for Dr. Paul A. Gardner
Dr. Gardner removed a very large tumor from my brain, I am very grateful for the time he took to review the scans prior to surgery in order to know as much about what had to be done prior to my surgery. In my opinion Dr. Garder is very good at what he does and is very professional. I would definitely recommend him .
EVERY TIME I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT I HAVE TO WAIT A VERY LONG TIME JUST TO GET MY MRI RESULTS. VERY TERRIBLE AT PUNCTYALITY AND NO CONCERN OF THE PATIENTS TIME. I HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR YEARS AND THE SAME THING ALWAYS HAPPEN I WAIT AND WAIT AND WAIT. THE STAFF IS NOT FRIENDLY AT ALL THEY LOOK LIKE THEY ALL SAT ON A TACKS OR SOMETHING TERRIBLE. NO APOLGY AT ALL UPMC NEED TO BE INVESTIGATED BECAUSE THEY DO ALL THE HIGH PAYING INSURANCE FIRST AND THE MEDICARE PATIENTS HAVE TO SIT THERE ALL DAY. HE GOOD AT WHAT HE DO BUT HIS TIME MANAGEMENT AND PUNCTUALITY SUCKS.
Dr. Gardner and his team of talented doctors removed a pituitary tumor for my brother a few months ago and he's doing fantastic now. My family feels so lucky that Dr. Gardner was able to perform the surgery through the nose and there were no complications! We have him to thank for saving my brother's life.
Dr. Gardner saved my life by removing a brain tumor. when i was diagnosed i was scared outta my mind until i talked with him and he told me what needed to be done, he eased both my own and the minds of my family. He knows what hes doing and in my mind hes the best in the world at what he does i recommended anybody that has any neurological conditions to see him ASAP. i had brain surgery on july 7 2014 and by july 12 i was doing everything again in my mind hes amazing
Dr Gardner was part of my Surgical team for my Acoustic Neuroma surgery (along with Dr.McCall) in July 2013. My first appt with him was in May 2013 to discuss my upcoming surgery - I felt an immediate trust in him, his knowledge,credentials,expertise, etc. He was caring and listened to my concerns/fears of the upcoming surgery. He, along with Dr McCall (and surgical team) brought me thru this surgery remarkably and without the complications I had feared - the thought of anyone cutting thru my skull scared me to death -let's face it-nobody ever would want to have their head cut open -unless it was necessary -and mine was - and so if you do face this type or any type of brain surgery - I would HIGHLY recommend Dr.Gardner - his skill, in my opinion, is one of the best- every precaution was taken to make my surgery & recovery as safe and smoothe as possible - I was very pleased with the outcome and follow-up care he provided also. I am so thankful for him & glad he was one of my surgeons!
Dr. Gardner removed an Epidermoid Tumor from my daughter's brain. Words cannot express how happy and satisfied we are with the entire experience. Dr. Gardner made himself available to answer any questions / concerns that we had throughout the entire process. His calm and confident approach enabled our family to get through this very scary event knowing that we had found the best surgeon. In addition, his staff and facilities are world class. The long and complicated surgery was performed without any issues or complications. We are forever in Dr. Gardner's debt for helping our daughter.
No words can express how wonderful he is....He maybrun some times off schedule,but he NEVER RUSHS,he gives you his full attention.He staff is outstanding also. he must pick them ,very carefully,like he is.I travel across the states to see him only.
Dr. Gardner did my second brain surgery @ Pitt. He is an amazing dr. he listens, answers questions, takes extra time with you. I can ask him anything and not feel dumb or like he don't have time. His staff is GREAT, they call or e-mail me right back. if I start to cry, they calm me down. They are so caring. It is best to have your appt first thing in the morning or the last one in the day or sometimes you can be waiting awhile. I wouldn't go anywhere else, unless he leaves Pittsburgh. I've been dealing with a brain issue for 12 years now and Dr. Gardner was one of the surgeon who saved my life! I would recommend him to anyone!
