The treatment she prescribed for me is working and I am in a much better condition after a month or so. I expect to see her soon again to continue my treatment and improvement. Besides this, she is a wonderful person, very caring about the patients.

Dr Guanche takes her time to listen and care for her patients. She has great bedside manner and is not your typical doctor who likes to prescribe meds. She likes to get to the root of the issue and I highly recommend her and her staff.

One of the highest recommended Physiatrists in the South Florida region. Went in for a consultation, the wait was short (unlike most doctors’ offices) and was the most graceful and candid doctor I have ever consulted with. Would recommend 11/10 times!
