I was lucky enough to have Dr. Gutstein when I had my colonoscopy. The doctor is very friendly and explains everything both prior and after the procedure. I had a malignant polyp and he was able to get all the bad stuff out during the procedure. I still had to have colon cancer surgery to be sure, but due to all the bad stuff being remove, the portion of my colon removed came back clean on the pathology report which meant no chemo or other follow up care. I highly recommend Dr. Gutstein and thank god this great professional was my doctor.

I recently met Dr Gutsrin as I was scheduled for a procedure via my PCP. As a practicing Physician Assistant, I’m quite particular in my choice of care providers. Dr Gutstein is now my GI doc for life!

They were running about 2 hour behind. Met the dr for the first time for about 30 seconds before the procedure. After he made it clear he didn’t want me to question or ask for clarification so I could understand what he was saying. His attitude was that I should shut up and listen. Not my fault it was after 5:00

This doctor is right on target - he listens to you, assesses and gives you his conclusion. Dr. Gutstein is quite brilliant, quick and gets to the point but is not gruff. My assessment as a retired RN, CCRN (certified in critical care)

I have been a patient of Dr. Gutstein's for over 20 years and have always had confidence in his advice and skills. Although Gloria runs the show, he still has my loyalty and keeps my digestive system healthy. Thanks to Dr. Gutstein, Gloria, and his great team.

Dr Gutstein coldly told us my husband had cirrhosis of the liver and was going to die. He said he can never have general anaesthesia so we had to cancel his shoulder replacement surgery. Went to Mayo Clinic for 2nd opinion. He did not have cirrhosis of the liver and is perfectly OK for surgery. However we had to wait 6 more painful months until his surgeon could reschedule his shoulder surgery. I would never recommend Dr Gutstein

Dr. Gutstein is very professional and knowledgeable. I had a few questions & concerns about the procedure which we discussed in detail and thoroughly. He answered each one and made it a point to confirm that I understood his answers and direction. A very down to earth, Likable gentlemen who is focused on providing excellent patient care. I would not hesitate to recommend to all of my family & friends.

Dr Gutstein listened to what I had to say regarding my Neurofibromatosis and regarding my son having NF and my 3 1/2 year old grandson with NF and tumor on his brain. He reassured me that my grandson was in the perfect state to get the best treatment. He assured me he would look for neurofibroma's during my procedure. I would totally go to him for what ever I needed. I will return for a procedure regarding my dysphagia. Execellent bedside manor. Thank you Dr G. sandra smith.
