Dr. Guss is as arrogant as they come. He gets insulted if you question him or ask him to contact another Dr. I have never been treated so dismissively.

Unacceptable to wait over an hour! 75 Minutes for a follow up appointment. Not sure why they make appointments. Might have better luck if you just walk in.

I was extremely happy I found Dr. Guss. He is a very compassionate physician who went out of his way to make sure my gastrointestinal issue was addressed. I visited 3 other GIs prior to Dr. Guss and was surprised when Dr. Guss was able to find that I had ulcers that were missed by my other physicians. He then started me on medication after about 2 weeks my symptoms were completely resolved. Thank you Dr. Guss.
