Dr. Gutman is a fantastic ophthalmologist. He was on call the night my husband & I got in a wreck. He treated my husband, thinking retinol detachment. He later learned that was not the case. Dr. Gutman has a caring& thoughtful personality. Very professional , yet treated us with kind caring respect. I have no doubt God put Dr. Gutman in our path. Very intelligent but not arrogate about it. If you need a retinol specialist he is the doctor to locate.

Dr. Gutman did my emergency retinal surgery a couple of months ago. He is an excellent doctor with a great bedside manner. He always seemed as excited as I was to see how my recovery was going. Evidently he is also a very skilled surgeon, as today I "graduated" from retinal surgery recovery, and it was a complete success! I couldn't be happier!

DR. Gutman did a great job on taking care of my histoplasmosis retna problem. I had a series of shots and laser treatments which took care of the problem. Dr. Gutman has a great personality and takes time to explain the problems and treatments. I rate DR. Gutman tops in Ophthalmology and retna care and would recommend him to anyone needing eye care.

He is such a wonderful doctor. He takes time explaining everything to you. He's not one of those doctor that hurry in and out on you. He's very polite and considerate. He's one of a kind in my book.

My wife was first seen by Dr. Gutman as a walk-in with floaters and flashes. They fit us in and he did a thorough exam and explained her condition. He listened and communicated very well. His followup exam was a similar good experience.
in Little River SC |
Dr. Gutman is a gentle man. I was a new patient and he was kind and welcoming. I found him to be thorough. He explained what was a new problem with my eyes in a way that left me with no fear that he would watch it and that he could fix it if necessary. I totally trusted him. I appreciate that he did not jump to surgery right away.
