Unlike a lot of these negative reviews I find Dr Gutta a very attentive Dr and sensitive to my health issues from the first time I seen him. He reviews my current medical issues and envolves me in the decision making. Best doctor I've ever had that honestly cares about you!!! Thanks, Doctor Gutta. Big Scott
By Far the Worst Doctor I ever encounter...Had a appointment and this person who calls himself a doctor was the most unprofessional arrogant and judging person I have ever experienced came in for a existing addiction problem and was treated like the scum of the earth wanted nothing to do with me and told me to go back where I came from did not want to prescribe my medication which I was out of and has literally saved my life for the last 4 months. Did give me one and told me to never come back!
Dr Gutta is an excellent doctor. He actually spends time with his patients and has an excellent chair side manner. He focuses on getting to the root cause of your pain and is all around a great person!

i've been a patient of dr. gutta's for 7 years now & if anyone would've told me i'd EVER be looking for a new doctor i would't have believed it BUT his move to dupage medical has changed him, his personality, the way he speaks to me, his "so-called" bed-side manner....which at first, i excused due to him settling in to the new practice, etc...then i realized something...i'm his patient. he's the one who is not attending to his patient (myself)-i don't like what DUPAGE HAS DONE TO DR. GUTTA!

I would recommend you think twice before scheduling an appointment with this man. He has a preconceptions about his patients before he even has had an opportunity to know them.

Don't go to dr. Gouda if you just want to g if you want a doctor that genuinely cares and listens then he's your man but you're going to have to sit and wait if you want a doctor that genuinely cares and listens then he's your man but you're going to have to sit and wait sometimes he's always worth the wait though. Been seeing him for over 6 years.

He was assigned to my mother's knee surgery when they couldn't get her pain under control. He never came to talk to her even after what he had tried to change her to was not working . So here she is trying to recover from surgery with a pain level of 9 and blood pressure going through the roof due to the pain. This is not someone you want assigned to your family members.

The doctor was over an hour late. He was condescending, arrogant, argumentative. He didnt accept my answers to his question about pain level and kept explaining what the number was 4 times like I was challenged. He said a 10 pain level was dead ??? a 9 was yelling and intolerable, an 8 was unbearable, a 7 was cant take it, a 6 was severe, a 5 was painful ?? When I explained I was an 8 due to my 7 lumbar, 3 cervical, a knee, and recently had a muscle pulled in my back that was creating more pain
