    I have been seeing Dr. Guardia for several years and highly recommend him. He discovered cancer(kidney) and made referrals until it was under control. Easy to understand and knows his field of medicine without a doubt

    Disgusting person, would never recommend him to anyone. They should remove his license to practice. He doesn't even deserve a one star.
