Dr. Guthrie is a fantastic opthamologist for children! Dr. Guthrie and his team are amazing! They were so helpful to answer any questions and at times when I felt doubt, they reinforced those gaps with assurance that stood strong and true. Rest assured - if you have a child in need, even a very young child like mine, that needs to be seen for an eyesight problem - you are in GREAT and BEST hands with him. He cares about his patients. Highly recommended

Dr. Guthrie was amazing with my 5 yr old. He made her feel comfortable and they (the other doctor as well as the office staff) were very professional. The first time I went, they even helped me get the necessary coverage my insurance didn't want to give my daughter even thought it was a medical need. Very happy. Even after I switched insurance & was this doctor wasn't in their network, I went back because I only trusted them with my daughter's sight.

I was referred to Dr.Guthrie through a friend of mine who is a long time patient of his and I couldn't be more pleased with his attention to detail and amazing results and responses. My kids usually hate doctor's appointments but they don't ever complain with Dr.Guthrie, he makes not only me feel comfortable but my kids as well. I will definitely continue to visit him if my boys ever need any ophthalmic attention again. I am grateful for all he's done to make my son's vision better. 10/10
