Made an appointment, was told it would be 2 weeks. Several days before my appointment I called to make sure my insurance and everything else was in order, because it's a 2 hour drive for me, didn't want a wasted trip. Was told everything was ready to go, so I assumed I was good. I arrive for my appointment only to be told that there was a problem with my insurance. Wasted 3 hrs driving and waiting. No point in calling. Not saying the Dr. is incompetent, just the staff that supports him.

Dr.Guenst is a very caring, patient doctor.I highly recommend him. I've never had a doctor that actually listen to me..He just don't give you medication he check to see what's causing the problem & send you to someone to give you test before he prescribed anything.I really admire him.Just would like to say.I really appreciate my doctor.I think Freed his nurse is awesome as well.I would give him a 10 if I could.

My wife and I began seeing Dr. Guest based on a friends recommendation and we could not be happier with the service we receive. When my mother reached the stage where she could no longer live alone she moved to Nashville to live with us. Dr. Guest became her doctor at that time and she was amazed at the time and attention he devoted to her. We have recommended Dr. Guest to others and they have all been as pleased as we are. If it were possible to give him more than five stars I would.

I had a painful infection and called to get an appt. to see Dr. Guenst, my PCP. The receptionist said I could not see the Dr. without first taking my annual physical. When I asked to schedule an annual physical she said it would be two weeks. What's a Dr. for if not to see you when you are sick?

Dr. Guenst is an excellent doctor in all respects. He takes as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain things. Test results are available ASAP. His office will fit you in if you have an emergency. He is understanding and compassionate. His nurse, Peggy is fantastic.
