    He seemed fine upon our initial meeting but things quickly went downhill with him and his staff. I found him to be arrogant, dismissive, disingenuous, and impatient. He was quick to make judgements without considering the patient's full history. He showed little empathy or compassion. You get the feeling you are bothering him. This intimadates a patient, making them not want to share personal details. You leave feeling worse than you did when you came in to see him. Worst doctor ever.

    Dr guram did not monitor my treatment with his associates. I had reaction to a med8cation and now am suffering very much. I can not get assistance with this and he continues to make money and prosper. It is unfortunate he is allowed to continue practice in medicine and all he cares about is the money not your health. He will answer to God one day as we all will do.
