I guess I am the exception. Dr Guske has not actually seen me since my surgery on 11-24-20. His asst saw me and his office has cancelled 2 appts. Now I have to wait another 3 weeks to be seen. I was sent for an upper GI due to the problems I was having and NO One called me with the results. Dr Guske is a very nice Doctor but I am not impressed with the level of care I am receiving.

Dr. Paul Guske has performed a few surgeries of mine. I have a rae genetic disorder and going under the knife is always a risk. More risk than the average bear. Dr. Guske is prepared for that, is knowledgeable about my disease, and explains every detail to me plus the pros and cons before every surgery. He is honest and has an excellent bedside manner. He answers all of my questions before proceeding. And if there is anything I need for comfort post surgery or follow up, he makes sure I am ok.

Dr. Guske took my husband on as a patient when a doc (from another group) forgot to put him on the surgery schedule. He squeezed us in when he didn't have to. He was kind and informative, taking the time to explain in detail what he was doing in a way that we could understand. He came highly recommended from several medical professionals and friends and now we know why. A great doc who really cares for and about his patients. Thank you again for all you did.

I had a colon resection after a perforated diverticulitis episode in March. I have never been sick in my life and was pretty terrified, but Dr. Guske was the first dr. I saw the next morning in the hosp. and he stated what the initial plan was and surgery for later would be- When my GP asked who I was choosing for my surgery it wasn't even a question it was going to be him. His bedside manner is on point. I saw many many dr's that week, he stood out from the rest. I'd recommend him to all.
