Dr Guinto has been providing medical care to my family for 10 years, ages 52, 50 and 13. She is knowledgeable, meticulous, and compassionate. I have 100% confidence in her decisions and zero complaints about her care. I highly recommended her if you are even lucky enough to get in as I think her patient panel is closed. I find it amazing that anyone would get online and complain about her or any medical provider during a global pandemic. I feel sorry for them, to endure such absurd complaints. I can't even imagine what it is like to face such a horrible illness day in and out and yet they continue to work face to face with sick patients. I'm guessing the complaints about her are from drug seekers, way to say NO to them Dr. Guinto!!!!

M.W. – Apr 01, 2021
Count them, folks! 15 ONE STAR REVIEWS!! And all well-deserved, trust me on this. Dr. Guinto is the type of arrogant practitioner that makes for the worst kind of doctor. She is a TERRIBLE listener and misses at least half of what you tell her. I went to get my labs done and she had written done the same test THREE times. The labs I desperately needed weren't listed and when I tried to contact her on Mychart about this, she simply wrote "Make an appt." My health has declined considerably under her "care" and I'm constantly having to call the office correctly issues that she gets wrong. Did I mention she's a terrible listener?

She takes excellent care of my boys and myself. She listens to everything we have to say and comes up with the right plan of action. Don't know what I would do without her.

Dr. Guinto has saved my life, twice!! First when I had chronic and acute anemia and neutropenia, and had had every heart and lung test done by specialists, and was so weak I could not get off the couch, and secondly when she referred me to Carol Milgard Breast center for my mammogram, and it was found I had invasive breast cancer! She is the most caring and intuitive MD I have ever met!!! My family thanks you for saving their Mom!!!
