Dr. Guy and her staff are always friendly and nice. We feel like we are apart of a family. They treat our daughter like she is an actual person instead of just a "number". We can not say enough about Dr. Guy and her staff. This is the best doctors office anyone could go to.

I have been taking my disabled/special needs grandson to Dr. Guy for a couple of years now (was tired of the run around at a local children's hospital). She is very thorough and tries to get to the bottom of the problem so we can "fix" him. She is very down to earth and talks to you NOT at you. She asks your opinion and is straight forward. One of the best bedside manners we have seen in a long time.

Dr. Guy was incredibly thorough and understanding of our concerns. She gave us some very helpful suggestions to try while we waited for test results. She tested for things I didn’t even know a test existed for. She’s also very experienced with the challenges that come with an autistic child and food sensory issues.

My daughter has a very complicated medical history. We are very careful about who we choose to care for her. Dr Guy has been an outstanding physician. She leads the way confidently and with careful consideration. Our daughter has had great results while in Dr. Guy's care. I recommend her with complete confidence that she's the best.

Dr. Guy is warm, attentive, and compassionate. She has been very perceptive of my son's feelings. She is also knowledgeable, unhurried, and will take time to answer questions and/or address concerns. My son who has in the past been afraid of doctors gives her "5 stars" as he really likes her. We both do and are happy we found her.

Dr. Guy and her team are exceptionally good at taking care of their patients. From the time of initial T1D diagnostic, when their kindness and "let's do this together" attitude helped us get through the difficult moment, to the highly dedicated, personalized, kind care they've consistently given. Dr. Guy takes the time to ask and answer all questions, follows up promptly, and even takes the lead in coordinating medical care for other conditions to ensure the best possible outcomes. Dr. Guy is one of the best doctors we've ever had experiences with. And that extends to her team and the clinic as well. Everyone is simply wonderful.

Dr. Guy is THE best Nashville and surrounding areas has to offer. We drive an hour and a half for our appointments with her and would absolutely be lost with her as Violet’s main specialist. She goes above and beyond to ensure my daughter is being taken care of. I am so thankful we got to have Dr. Guy as our endocrinologist from our time spent in the NICU to two and a half years later!
