Dr. Gutman may be a competent surgeon, as i did not experience complications. Personally he is arrogant with a menial office staff. I had surgery in early December and i was given a release for work on 29th December. This was filed with my employer. After several attempts and denied sal con status to get him to submit proper paperwork, he fonally submitted that it was only medically necessary for me to have been out a week. ( same period from surgery to my follow up, where he told me i don't need to contact him again unless under an emergency situation. All he had to due was align his signed release to work with the time needed out. This man got paid and was one and done. I am a corporate officer, so a month without income is impactful; especially in todays world. I lost thousands in pay due to his claim for ethics which contradict his ethical release date. I never received communication, just that they submitted necessary paperwork to my employer. Horrible bedside, clinical surgeon!

Dr. Gutman gave me concern when he asked me a question that was directly related to a two previous surgerys listed in my medical history. This was a first time visit. Office staff scheduled a different test than what Dr Gutman said was needed during my visit. Waited six days to get the correct test scheduled.

Ive been a patient of Dr. Gutman since 2007. I ended up having sinus surgery due to my issues. Surgery was very easy. No complications. No getting my nose packed and only needed pain meds for 2-3 days max. He did a great job and it totally turned things around for me health wise. I stopped getting sick all the time and my energy finally returned! Very good doc/surgeon and genuinely a nice man.

Pompous and arrogant- made me wait over 1/2 hour for him. Decided that I need surgery. Went to another doctor who said that I do not need surgery- stay away from this one.

This dude is the worst ENT in Arizona and perhaps in the nation. He treated my sister like a piece of garbage. He insulted her for going to the ER when she experienced the severe symptoms mimicking a stroke but yet he wouldn't give her an appointment until the ER visit occurred. He is incompetent, inefficient and ineffective.

No one every wants their child to need surgery, but Dr. Gutman explained why he suspected our 17mo old son would need ear tubes (we'd suspected after a string of ear infections) and then subsequent testing confirmed middle ear fluid. He answered all of our questions and explained things thoroughly. We are SO happy a schoolmate's mommy recommended him, this was a very positive experience before and after surgery. Staff were also equally friendly and had excellent child bedside manner. Thank you.
