For my first experience with BW&S clinics and Dr Gaertner was exceptional. I found Dr G to be a very good listener and very thoughtfully described his diagnosis and options for treatment. I especially appreciate him talking candidly and asking for my comfort and view of opioid pain medication for severe back pain I was experiencing. He also anticipated some next steps and cleared a path, at my option to exercise if needed. If I had any feedback on improvement it would be a more descriptive summary in the BW&S portal of the results of the visit. I found the summary of the visit there lacking - with only information on some vitals..

Dr. Gaertner and his staff run a tight ship! Even in this awkward Covid times, I was checked in quickly, waited a very minimal amount of time, and was seen right away. Dr. Gaertner spent plenty of time with me addressing all of my questions and concerns, and was extremely thorough. His bedside manner is exceptional and it was a great balance of listening and suggesting course of action. Will definitely be recommending Dr. Gaertner and this facility to others.
