Dr. Gutkin has been my ortho for at least the past five yrs. He's simply the best! Attentive, gives it to you straight and doesn't sugar coat anything. He's still empathetic and sympathetic all in the same breath.

I have been a patient of Dr Gutkin for over 10 years. He is patient, explains pain relief options thoroughly including the long term impact of the short term decisions. He is very sensitive to his patients taking time to clarify and understand their medical issues in order to effectively address them. He has successfully helped me make pain management decisions over a long period of time to optimize my health.

Dr. Gutkin helped me immensely. I HAD been suffering with back pain (herniated disc) for over 8 years. Prior to see Dr. Gutkin, other doctors just threw pills (opiates) at me. Dr. Gutkin was able to properly diagnose what was wrong, and after a few outpatient visits (facet ablation, & steroid injection), I'm now pain free & off opiates. I can't thank him enough, he changed my life. Dr Gutkin fixed 8 years of pain, and 7 years of pill-popping in 6 months Plus, he is super nice, and funny.

I gave my background over the phone and they told me they took my insurance then I got there and they told me they didn't. When I got in the room I told the nurse that I was currently prescribed 30 oxy and wanted help lowering the dose and finding new means to help the pain. She immediately told me there was nothing they could do. I asked her to please talk to the Dr first and she said that would be considered an apt and I'd lose $180 just to ask him a question. TERRIBLE ATTITUDE RUN!!!!!!!!
