Dr Guerra has been my Gastroenterologist for over 15 years and as a retired RN I would place my care in his hands on any day. He has performed both Endoscopies and Colonoscopies on me multiple times and I have sustained no negative complication.He is very easy to talk to and explains things fully.

I have been a patient of Doctor Guerra's nearly 18 years. I first saw him as a favor for the Orthopedic Surgeon my mother worked for at the time. Prior to that he had a policy of not seeing patients under 18 years of age. I am forever grateful that he did as the Pediatric Gasteroenterologist had misdiagnosed Crohn's for 3 years. Dr. Guerra, I can say with all honesty, saved my life when he agreed to see me when I was only 16 years old.

Dr Guerra is nice and funny. The staff I saw that I can really speak highly of is the Nurse Practitioner, Karen Spencer. I would go back and request to be seen by her. Aside from that, staff is courteous and effective which makes things easier. Wait time can get long.

I went in for a routine colonoscopy, my first one. Dr. Guerra was very attentive, has a very positive and caring attitude, a great bedside manner and really listens. He explained what he saw in the photographs. When I went back for my follow-up, he explained the surgical options and what he would recommend and even wrote out notes for me to give to my surgeon. Not only is he a great doctor, but one of the nicest guys I ever met. I highly recommend him.
