What People Say About Dr. Carla Guggenheim, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Terrible. Dx me on first impression without looking at my blood work referral from PCP. When she did run her own blood panel, she mis-dx me with one autoimmune disease even tough it's been confirmed by U Of M I actually have another. She didn't seem to know what she was doing, or how to deal with younger patients who aren't there for joint problems. Avoid.
