Patient Comments (3)
Ephrata, PA |
Inarticulate, Spent most of my time with him listening to him discuss himself and psychiatry, rather than my experiences and mood. There were moments where I was unclear what he was even talking about and why. He told me he would do the asking and I am to answer but not say anything additional that he didn’t ask for. My questions were ignored. He didn’t discuss my options with me or talk about potential alternative medications. Very poor ‘bedside manner’.

I wish it were possible to give 0 stars because that's what Dr. DeGuzman deserves. This was without a doubt the worst experience I've ever had in a "doctors" office (I use that term loosely here). Dr. DeGuzman was not only judgmental & passive aggressive, but he lacked empathy & understanding - two major components in his line of work. To think he spends his days treating the mental health of others is scary. Dr. DeGuzman is the perfect example of everything you DON'T want in a psychiatrist.

Treated me like a hysterical woman who needed to be shut up with drugs. Put me on Welbutrin even though it treats depression while possibly increasing anxiety. I don't have depression. I have anxiety. Three doses is all it took to have me crying at my desk at work and spending an entire day fighting off suicidal thoughts and a strong desire to cut myself.
