I had breast augmentation 8 days ago at 12:30. The staff greeted me in a professional and knowledgeable way. I explained I had a blood sugar issue and they were sure to keep tabs on me as I waited for him to finish up his first surgery. I knew Dr Gardner was considered to be a perfectionist and so I stayed calm and watched TV until he finished. The nurses took such good care of me in the meanwhile. When he came in he apologized about being tardy and said no one could stop him or rush him through a procedure and I liked that. My procedure took him more than 5 hours that afternoon. For the first time in years I woke up NOT sick and feeling rather 'good', which was surprising after the amount of surgery I had. Now after 8 days I am back to work and so happy with the results. I prepared well for my surgery and did a lot of research. Dr Gardner is simply the best

Surgery scheduled to repair breast from mistake he made years earlier. Was told to arrive at 12:30 at surgery center. Time kept getting pushed back was told he was "really backed up" and that he was a perfectionist that's why he was behind. He Never met with me on day of surgery. Very unprofessional since I was hungry and thirsty from fasting. Ended us not having procedure. They refunded my money but the whole experience for the 2 months preparing for this was a nightmare. No consideration for my feelings. Overall horrible experience.

Very skilled surgeon who removed cancer from my husbands nose. You would never know he had anything done and his nose looks great. He also removed melanoma from my leg after my dermatologist recommended I see Dr. Gardner. He is a very caring and compassionate doctor. A++

I interviewed several Plastic Surgeons in the Naples area and selected Dr Gardner. His bedside manners are as great as his work! He is very down to earth, genuinely takes interest in what you have to say and he did not rush me thru any of my appointments. my BA surgery was in Feb 2014 and i am extremely pleased. The stitches are flat, and healed perfectly. The breast size is exactly what i discussed with him. I would highly recommend him! In fact, i will be returning for a followup visit soon and will discuss other surgeries with him. Great Doctor!!!

It seems redundant to add another glowing review with all the others here. His patients are obviously pleased, as am I. My neck lift has made a significant difference in my profile, yet I don't look like I've had surgery. The staff are always smiling and kind. Read reviews of other doctors and you'll see not everyone has a perfect score with no complaints. I highly recommend Dr. Gardner.

After visiting several doctors in the area I decided to use Dr Gardner for my breast reduction surgery. Dr Gardner was very caring and took the time to listen to my concerns and answer all questions. I am 2 weeks post-op and feel really good, the pain was so minimal I would use the term uncomfortable more than pain. The biggest problem I am having is sleep....just want to lay on my tummy and side again! I went from an H+ cup down to about a C and that is exactly what we discussed. I am very glad about the choice to have surgery with Dr Gardner!

Had a upper and lower blepharoplasty with a slight lift at outer corners of my eyes. Dr.Gardner owns my face from now on. He did a marvelous job! He was highly recommended by my female doctor and nurses that dont even work for him! I'll be having a neck lift and nose job next. Now when I look into the mirrors in stores with terrible lighting (most of them!) I take a double look at my younger looking eyes! Before I looked tired and angry no matter the best eye creams available. Cant wait for you to get your hands on my face again Dr.G! Sincerely, L.Courts

Dr. Gardner is truly blessed with amazing skills, and above all else made me feel safe. He is personable, conscientious and extremely intuitive. I interviewed several plastic surgeons in Naples and Dr. Paul Gardner was the only Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who could perform the two types of surgeries that I needed, without hiring and scheduling two separate doctors. His surgical skills are meticulous and I love my beautiful results. It has changed the way I feel about myself and I cannot thank him enough for his expertise and professionalism. It has been a totally positive experience and I highly recommend Dr. Paul Gardner and his professional staff. D.L. P.S. Yes, you will see me at the beach in my bikini, thanks to Dr. Paul Gardner, Plastic Surgeon Extraordinaire!
