I greatly appreciate Dr. Gaertner's bedside manner and his appreciation for my lifestyle and needs. He is great, however I find working within the BS&W system frustrating beyond words. Getting in touch with the office by phone is impossible and the call center is unreliable in conveying messages. Since Dr. Gaertner joined BS&W it seems the practice has become another cog in a dysfunctional wheel. Thank goodness he has been able to maintain his bedside manner and professionalism.
