*Dr. Guthmann has provided excellent care. Whatever needed to be done he always followed through and my wife and I have so much confidence in him and recommend him to many others.

I've gone to him for almost nine years, and I've become more disappointed through the years (after a fine beginning). I rarely go to the doc, but I do work for and have insurance and think it's prudent to see the doc when I'm ill (even if the illness is just one more virus my child brought home from school). Lately, he gives off the vibe that I am wasting his time. Twice on visits in the last year, when I have inquired about a second -- legitimate, documented -- issue that I was experiencing in addition to the primary cause for my visit that day, he expressed irritation that I asked about another issue. When I was describing medication I had been prescribed by a doc on a recent visit to an out-of-town "minute clinic," he literally said, "I don't care." I'd dearly love to change to a provider who actually cared about my well-being. In my profession, I'd be fired for this kind of callousness and lack of professionalism.

Fantastic experience. Dr Guthman spent an incredible amount of time walking me through my medical history and current symptoms.
