Philosophy

“I consider myself an advisor, not an enforcer. I believe it is my job to recommend what I  consider to be the most appropriate treatment for a condition, but it is the patient’s right to decide whether or not to implement those recommendations.”

Clinic

Dr. Gardner practices at the Green Clinic Arcadia satellite office. He enjoys the variety in Family Medicine, not only the variety of problems encountered daily, but also the variety of patients. Getting to know his patients and their families is a priority, and he finds practicing medicine much more enjoyable to think of his patients as friends. Dr. Gardner offers routine checkups, same day appointments when available, and will make the appropriate referrals when necessary. His office is also participating in the Smoking Cessation program which is very beneficial for those attempting to quit nicotine. Dr. Gardner  is currently accepting new patients. He accepts Medicare and most commercial insurances.
