Englewood, NJ |
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.

Dr. Guterman is a wonderful doctor. My children have been patients of Dr. Gutermans for close to two decades and we have had only positive experiences. Dr. G. has a wonderful way of making the children and parents feel at ease. He exudes confidence and answers all our questions clearly and consicely. In case of emergency, Dr. Guterman is always available for us. We have referred many of our friends to Dr. Guterman, and they all have had the same positive experience.
Monroe, NY |
I have been taking my daughter to Dr. Guterman since she was 15 months old, so that makes us his patient for over 15 years! He is the best pediatric eye doctor. He is very thorough & patient, even though he is busy the attention is given to the patient in the chair. He is amazing with children and has a gentle way of speaking to my daughter. I would highly recommend him and already have to many friends and family. Even though I live over 30 minutes away, & sometimes have to wait it is worth it

Dr. Carl Guterman is an excellent pediatric ophthalmologist. He has taken care of all five of my children with great expertise and care. Two of my children have had complex eye issues and Dr. Guterman followed their care carefully and expertly. He is warm and kind and has a very helpful and friendly staff. He is one of those rare old-fashioned doctors that still gives his patients all the time that they need. I wish there were more pediatric specialists like Dr. Guterman...
