My mother had surgery a while back and she was very please in everyway with Dr. Guthikonda. The reason I'm writing this review is I'm referring someone to him now. If I every have to have any type of back surgery I will go to him.

I do not recommend him. His 3 visits prior to and after surgery on me, consisting of inquiring as to my insurance coverage (while I was in pain in the bed at WK hospital). As a 20 year retired veteran this scared me. To make matters worse, I told him about an associated pain in my hip and he said "I don't look at preventative treatment". Results: a permanent limp, and now I may have to have a double hip replacement. He didn't even look. Someone else told me I have AVN.

Office experience was terrible, they never see you on time. wait time for my last several visits has been at least two hours past appointment time. So bad that patients are heard asking other patients what there appointment time was and then shaking there heads...wouldn't recommend him or any other doctor in their medical arts building office by Piermont hospital
