Very please with my Dr.
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.
We apologize for the long wait time. We work diligently to see all patients in a timely manner. However, there are days when emergent cases present themselves requiring additional attention. We are grateful for our patients understanding during those times. Please reach out to us if we can answer any questions or concerns. All the best.

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.

Dr. Guss is a wonderful physician! He is caring and very understanding. He shows excellent medical judgement!
in Wanamassa, NJ |
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.
