Mary Frances Gardner, MD, Doctor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Medicine.
As a physician with 45 years in the field, Dr. Gardner specializes in working with young women in both health and contraceptive needs. She has continued to succeed because of her patients, who continue to express their gratitude and let her know she is making a difference. Dr. Gardner entered the field because of her mother’s best friend, who was a physician, and became the first to become a doctor in her family.
Dr. Gardner is proud of her completeness competency and caring, as well as her ability to provide clients with contraceptive needs in a climate of hostility. She is fond of saying that “all communication is in the ear of the hearer,” and that obstacles are often preconceptions. She puts one foot in front of the other and goes on in difficult situations, even when they are discouraging.
Dr. Gardner continues to work with her mother’s best friend’s words in her ear, and that it does not take great brains to succeed, but perseverance and the will to get up every day to do what she loves. She feels she has never worked a day in her life because of this advice. Dr. Gardner has learned not to judge people or patients in her line of work, and to put herself in someone else’s shoes to help deal with a situation.
