I have been treated by Doctor Guitian for the past two years for A Fib. Every visit to him has been accomplished within reasonable time. The entire staff is very professional and respectful not only of my privacy but also a person being seen. Doctor Guitian is very thorough and explains all tests, exams, and outcomes.

The whole staff, from Marcie at check in, the nurses Summer and Krysten, Dr. Guitian, and Katie at checkout were absolutely wonderful. They are an office full of very personable and knowledgeable people and I would recommend them to anyone seeking cardiac care. Dr. Guitian is a very straight to the point doctor who is going to provide the best care that he can. He also doesn't immediately shoot for the most invasive procedure which I love!

The professionalism and efficiency of Krysten & Julie of the office staff are no small contribution to the smooth running operation of Dr. Guitian's office. That means so muchto both doctor and patient! As for Dr. Guitian, he saved my husband's life when there wasn't a moment to spare. That's as good an evaluation of his excellent skills and experience for us. All things considered, we highly recommend this caregiver. If you are searching for a cardiologist, don't look any further.

Have been attended by Dr. Guitian since 2005 when he implanted stints in arteries around my heart. With typical medications and watching my diet, I have had no further heart or circulatory issues since that surgery. With the exception of one annual visit, I have been seen by Dr. Guitian himself and not a PA. Always found his staff very friendly and efficient. During my latest visit (6/2019), I was exceptionally impressed with nurse Kyrsten. Note: reason for some longer wait times was Dr.Guitians occasional emergency calls to the adjoining hospital.

Dr Guitian was thorough, frank, and answered all of my questions. Heart procedures are delicate in that different patients view their situation differently. I was relaxed and felt like I had the very best care while at West Florida under Dr Guitian. The staff was also superb. I would recommend them to any patient who needs cardiac care.
