Not impressed with Dr. Guggina. I saw her for a long-term skin condition that has been unsuccessfully treated by other dermatologists. She fed me the same lines that they did and offered the same treatments that have failed for years. She offered no solutions and no support.

The first time I went to Dr. Guggina for my annual total body check she began the exam without a single question, comment or attempt at making a personal connection. She did an extremely, quit, cursory exam. I have a long history of assorted skin issues, none of which she addressed or looked for. Clearly she had not read my chart before coming in. She didn't ask if I needed a Retin A refill or how often I use it. A total disappointment in every respect!
