Miami, FL |
Never felt so disrespected by a doctor in my life. Walked out of there wondering what just happened.
in Port Charlotte, FL |
I Had the pleasure of having Dr Guarino perform my surgery , (hernia), and when complications set in , Dr Guarino was right there each and every minute until everything turn out great. A true skilled professional hands down, compassionate, and a perfectionist, anyone would be well served to have Dr Guarino as their Surgeon. After care and office staff are absolutely fantastic, professional, courteous, and very interested in your well being. Highly recommended.
in Placida, FL |
Very helpful and available to explain and treat difficult problems...I would send any of my family to him for surgery!
in Port Charlotte, Fl |
Bad experience since not only him but the staff were rude, I had an endoscopy because I had really bad symptoms such as nausea, palpitations, heart burn, stomach cramps, chest pain, etc. He said he couldn't anything but a small hernia hiatal, that I needed to take omeprazole, he said I didn't have gastritis but after the biopsy was taken to the lab it showed that I had chronic gastritis, he didn't help me at all, I had to go to an specialist to find out that also I had gastroparesis.
