About Dr. Andrew Garner

I have been a Family Practice doctor since 1990 in Glens Falls, NY. I grew up in the Midwest, in Ohio and Indiana. I started out in the Wood County Hospital Bowling Green, Ohio washing dishes and then became an Orderly and from there worked my way up the ladder to become a Physician.

I attended undergraduate at Bowling Green State University and graduated from Wright State School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio. I did my Family Practice Residency at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio.

I moved to Glens Falls, New York in 1990 and opened up a solo Family Medicine practice, where I have been since.

I have been practicing Family Medicine and EDTA Chelation Therapy, which removes toxic metals from our bodies for 30+ years.

I truly enjoy being a physician. I count it such an honor and privilege to become involved in people’s lives and being able to truly help them.

I started EDTA chelation therapy in November of ‘23. After about half of the planned treatments I’ve reduced my blood pressure medication and I’m having much less angina. Hopefully this is due to improved circulation. I undertook this program because I’ve exhausted the surgical options. Open heart performed in 2019 failed , then stents were inserted with great difficulty. I wish I’d done this therapy before I reached the point where open heart surgery was done.

Truly a family practice! This team sees you and cares about you, as a real person, not just a number. I say that with over 20 years of experience with them. They know me by name and have taken very good care of my family and me. Dr. Garner is a great provider for all ages.

I just came from my annual physicals. You won't find better doctor in the region than Dr. Andy Gardner. He takes time to explain everything about the results of your tests and what you need to know. I leave there with great understanding of my health situations and next course of actions. The facility has a warm atmosphere I person enjoy coming here and Dr. Andy has been my physician for the past two years, I strongly recommend his services.

I cannot possibly express how pleased I am to be a patient of dr garner’s. He and nurse April provide by far the finest quality health care I have ever experienced - far better than any other of which I am aware or have ever heard of. I am very grateful for their care and attention

I met Dr. Garner in 1997 at Medi Call in Clifton Park. He was helping a fellow doctor by working one evening per week. I was quite impressed by the care he showed and the time he took to explain my situation. As a result, I have continued on to this day with him as my primary care physician. My experience with other family physicians between 1980 -1997 was to sit in the waiting room for at least a half an hour if not longer, then once being seen for maybe 10 minutes by the physician I felt rushed out the door. Dr. Garner's office is very efficient with the wait time being no longer than 5 minutes each visit. Between his nurse April and Dr. Garner they give me approximately 45 minutes of professional attention. I can't imagine a better and more thorough caring team to address my health care needs. I would rate them an A+ or 5 stars every time. Jon Bowers
