Dr. Guidera saw me, and I could tell from my description of my problem with my index finger that he had a good idea of the issue. After an in office x-ray, he returned and asked to see my thumb as well, and I assured him that it was an old cycling injury but was glad he was so thorough. The office staff was very kind and took the time to explain what they were doing along the way. Thank you for the excellent care during my visit!

I had a horrible experience at Core institute with my wrist. My office manager told me about Dr Guidera who she said was the best wrist specialist in Arizona. I made an appointment with his PA because I wanted in right away. But while I was seeing the PA, Dr Guidera came in the room and in just a few minutes had the problem figured out...something the Core doctors hadn't been able to do in 2 months of visits and expensive tests. Dr G was patient, interested and very caring FIVE STARS!!

John the PA cared for me from my first appointment all the way thru Post Surgery for my Carpal Tunnel. He truly was genuinely caring and extremely knowledgeable in all areas concerning my wrist and ongoing pain. The front office girls were diligent and always friendly, especially Sophia who always made sure to follow up with me if I ever left a message. Overall experience Superb!! Thanks again John for your utmost and ongoing care, truly appreciated!! Nikki Tucker

Fabulous results from my surgery! Full rotation in just 60 days!

I saw Dr G for a second opinion about my wrist because of the recommendation of a close friend. The first doctor I saw wanted to do surgery right away! I was really impressed that Dr G took so much time with me even though the waiting room was packed. His staff was very friendly and professional. We agreed that a surgery wasn't necessary and he personally called a hand therapist while I was there to discuss a treatment plan. My wrist was better in 4 weeks. Forget the rest: see the best!

Solid caring doc, great office staff especially his PA
Horrible. Staff is rude and incompetent to say the least, their procedure scheduler is the worst I'v encountered in years. Nothing about this office is professional. Would not recommend
