I have been seeing Dr Gaertner for a number of years and have followed him from a previous practice. He has always shown a very high level of knowledge of my needs. His diagnosis has always been correct. He includes me in the dialog and I always feel that he engages me in the decisions and I feel I understand what are the basis of the decisions.
