I have seen many doctors over the last few years for a rare disorder and no other doctor treated me with the kindness and consideration of Dr. Guma. Although this condition is not related to his specialty, he took the time to do research on his own time and advise me on how to move forward to find someone who could help me. Finally, I have hope because of him. God bless this man.. he is so very special and I feel blessed to know him.

Dr. Guma is a great doctor, he is knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful. My only criticism is the overscheduling of patients. Consistent wait time of 45 minutes to an hour for a scheduled appointment.

After visiting other rheumatologist, I walked into Dr. Guma's office with little hope that I would be able to walk normal again. I walked out with a clear and straight diagnosis and a treatment plan that would ultimately relieve my symptoms. Dr. Guma is an excellent Dr. and a credit to his craft. Don't confuse confidence with arrogance.

I would NEVER recommend this man to anyone, not even my WORST enemy! The second he walked in the room he exude pure arrogance and ego. I'm a 43 yr old female looking for a "real Rheumatologist". This guy couldn't diagnose a severed head.

Took my mother ,first the office staff very professional ,then proceed with doctor which i was amazed the curtsy he had with my mother he ask questions to the problem she was encounter then ask if she had any questions to him ,i have not seen a doctor like Dr Guma for the last 25 years , in fact i have problems finding a good doctor for my self. He is the doctor you can trust .
Dr. Guma is a very arrogant doctor. He is not sympathetic at all. Avoid going to this doctor at all costs. He will waste your time and money.
