I have been working with Dr. Guzman for 9 years. He has been extremely professional and compassionate. He takes time to listen to everything I have to talk about. He also remembers small details that are shared with him about my life. A good example of this is when I did not get along with my son, he remembered all of the details about our problem. I have seen him for the past 9 years and he has been compassionate each time. He is very professional and very compassionate. I recommend him.

I have had excellent experiences with Dr. Guzman, and I would highly recommend him. Unfortunately, the office is terrible. I have been trying to schedule an appointment for three weeks and every time I call I get a (literal) busy signal. No ringing, no chance to leave a message, no response to emails. If you can reach the office to schedule an appointment, I give 5 stars to Dr. Guzman. One star for accessibility and the staff.
