I saw Dr Guerin on an emergency basis. I had fallen and was losing arm strength and was having a great deal of difficulty walking. He saw me in a timely manner and within days I had a cervical fusion at multiple levels. I have seen him several times for follow up visits and found him knowledgeable, timely and pleasant I am grateful for his quick and appropriate care and fell his actions and surgery helped me avoid a most unpleasant future.

Do not waste your time with this non-caring, abrupt, rude, emotionless so-called doctor. Walked in and spent less than 2 minutes with me after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment. driving 35 minutes there and then filling out forms for 30 minutes. He walked in, emotionless and told me there is nothing he can do for me. When I asked him a question about why I am having so much pain, he responded. "I don't know". Thanks. Meanwhile another doctor has ordered a surgery for me next month.

This recent experience was the second surgery I've had with Dr. Guerin. Both times, I found Dr. G. to be the consummate professional. His work is top-notch. Aside from accuracy, incisions are minimal, very neat and heal quickly. I recently had an emergency with a herniated disc and Dr. Guerin was most expeditious in getting me in and correcting the problem. Relief from the excruciating pain from which there was no relief with any drugs was immediate and I am recuperating well.

Dr Guerin walked in to the examination room, didn't introduce himself to me or my husband, didn't make eye contact, and didn't even crack a smile. He asked me how I hurt my back, checked the reflex of my legs, and said I didn't require surgery. What?!!! I wasn't seeking surgery, I was seeing him because my family practioner sent me to him for arthritic bones spurs. I asked him if he reviewed my X-rays and he said, "No". What?!!! He spent LESS THAN 5 MINUTES WITH ME!!! Horrible....

Just moved to area from Texas, where two different back doctors told me I needed surgery. All I could find to bring Dr. Guerin was a CD of an MRI I had done 5 years ago. When he came into the room he tapped on my knees, took my hands and asked me to pull, and said, "No surgery can correct what's wrong with your back". When I told him that two doctors in Texas told me I needed surgery he replied, "Maybe you should go back to Texas and see them"! I was shocked and offended at his comment!

Came in the room introduced himself, and was out in less than 10 minutes and told me to go back to my doctor. I tried to ask him about my mri's and he said there is nothing there despite 3 other doctor including the report from the mri center that outlined multiple issues in my neck and back. I tried to ask him and answer I got was I looked at the film. There is nothing I can do go see your doctor and walked out of the room before I could say anything else.
