i came To Dr. Guttentag with a severely torn rotator cuff and other shoulder injuries. He is knowledgeable, personable, thorough and does not make his patients feel rushed. My experience with him and his staff was excellent and I would, without hesitation, recommend him to anyone requiring an outstanding Orthopedic physician.

Wonderful doctor and exceptional surgeon. Total Knee Replacement following other knee 8 years ago - this one much "easier." Uses most modern procedures, excellent and caring office staff, and best physical therapy I have ever experienced. Rescheduled surgery two weeks just prior to operation to insure existing medication levels were exactly what he deemed safe. Extremely knowledgeable and patient oriented. Next up is rotator cuff repair. Kept spouse fully informed. KNOWS orthopedics.

I had a complete right knee replacement a few years ago. I have no pain & NO ONE has ever seen a scar that is very light and straight. Dr Guttentag hires the Best .. If I was going to have a left total I would request the same professional to stitch me up.. I have had left knee problems, we tried the shot & the 3 gel shots.. When I went back to See Dr Guttentag he explained I needed a Partial. Did not force me said I would Know when I was ready. 2/14/17 Is My surgery.. I am ready Thank You !

Dr. Guttentag listen to my concerns and addressed them. I'm very excited about how well my knee is responding to my new parts. It's been over 10 yrs of pain and instability. Those concerns are gone! Thanks Doc!

I am 67 years old and had a total knee replacement on Nov. 30, 2016. Dr. Guttentag was extremely friendly and professional right from my first visit and was easy to talk to when discussing the pros and cons of surgery and what I could expect. He and his staff guided me through the surgery, post op, physical therapy and the pain that a full recovery requires. Recovery was painful, but with their support I now have full range of motion and can do everything (yoga/biking/weights, etc.). YAY!!

I have visited Dr Gutentag or an injury I acquired while working my job. It's important to know how and why my injury occurred and will affect me in the future and the doctor explained it all. I especially feel confident in his work for a few reasons. 1. He records everything he has done to treat me on his recorder. 2. Actually shows he cares like you are his first and only patient 3. He's the lead orthopedic surgeon for the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team. Personally I'm a flyers fan lol
in Land O Lakes, FL |
I have been operated on by Dr Guttentag at the very least 8 times for various injury's to my body, including 2 complete knee replacements, and i do recommend him very highly to everyone i talk to about surgery's. I have had at least 3 or possibly 4 people that have been to him and are completely satisfied. I have always found him to be honest and trustworthy and I always feel completely safe with him. I have been going to him for almost 20 years and would trust him with everything he tells me.
in Valrico, FL |
Very thorugh and up to date on the latest advancements in knee replacement. Staff very friendly and professional. Answers all concerns and questions thoroughly. Very personable and congenial as well as professional.
Orlando, FL |
Horrible patient advocate. If you want a patient advocate and someone who cares about their patient's futures, RUN the other way. I would leave a negative star rating if possible.
in Tampa, FL |
Terrible! I'd never seen him before yet he made negative judgements about both my intellect and what I told him about medical problems. I won't go back!!
