Harrison, NJ |
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.

I was told to see Dr. Guss due to suddenly being stricken with severe GERD out of the blue, as well as severe GI distress. I went to see him, and he told me no new information than what I had read in GERD forums. He then immediately scheduled me for an endoscopy at a place he partially owns. After the procedure found no new infromation, and I was forced to pay 1100$, I called in tears asking for help and received a call back from his nurse. I've yet to talk to him again.
