Patient Comments (15)

Dr. Guterman is a friendly and professional physician and we have used him since I was a toddler. He is well-trained and caring. Best of all, he takes the extra time to put his patients and families at ease and does the entire exam himself.

In opinion is manner is unprofessional in that he blamed an 11-year-old boy for failing to communicate accurately rather than consider that he was unable to assess the patient's problem.
