    Dr Guenterberg was my surgeon for my hernia surgery and was very informative and professional before during and after the surgery. The doctor came out and spoke to my wife while I was in recovery and she expressed to me after that he put her at ease and spoke to her at her level as if she was a family friend. I appreciated his professionalism and the surgery was a complete success! I would recommend Dr. Guenterburg to any of my friends, family, or others!

    I was referred to Dr. Guetenberg by my doctor over a potential hernia. I went to the appointment convinced that the doctor would try to convince me to have surgery, which I'd rather avoid. But I was happy to learn that I don't actually have a hernia and won't need surgery. Dr. Guenterberg took the time to listen to my concerns, and a funny story or two, he listened and showed real concern. I was very happy as I'd convinced myself I'd have to argue against surgery. Thanks Doc! :-D
