Dr. Guy was by far one of the best doctors that I have ever seen. She made my son feel safe and made me feel safe knowing that she had done everything to ensure that my son was healthy. As parent it means so much when a doctor not only does her job and provides exceptional care but also goes above to ensure that the parents are well informed and at ease with the care her child is given.

My less than 2 year old was diagnosed as a type 1,diabetic after a very scary trip to the ER, Dr.Guy has been there EVERY step of the way with us. I find it to be very easy to call the office and ask any questions I may have, providers have called back after hours to answer questions. Dr. Guy is fantastic with my son, I don't think I could have picked a better provider.

Dr. Guy was the best endocrinologist I had as a kid, and even as a young adult, I'm thankful I still get to choose her as my healthcare provider. She is friendly, easy to talk to, great at explaining things so they make sense (not just a bunch of medical terms strung together), and always makes me feel like I'm her only patient. My concerns and opinions are counted with her knowledge and clinical expertise when we make decisions for my care, and I always know she has my best interest at heart.

We love Dr. Guy! As a medical provider myself, I can easily say Dr. Guy meets my own high standards of what a physician should be: smart, relatable, engaging with both parents and the children, open to questions, and willing to spend adequate time during our visits (and during phone calls in between) to manage our care. We have not had a better physician in years and cannot say enough good things about her!

I loved Dr. Guy. She was so informative and had an exceptional bed side manner. You can tell she enjoys taking care of children.
