Dr. Guarneri is straight forward, but the very best at what is does. He recently performed surgery on me to remove my gallbladder and I have had almost no pain, scares are healing well and I felt very prepared for the recovery by Dr. Guarneri and the staff at Broward Health. He was recommended to me by multiple nurses including my sister who insist his patients always do great and almost never have any complications. Also waited less than a week for surgery. He is amazing.

Dr. Guarneri performed hernia repair surgery on my husband. His first appointment to see Dr. Guarneri was a bit of a disaster. He waited over an hour and then was rescheduled for 2 days later. The surgery was scheduled for his first available date which was about 3 weeks later. Surgery went well. The Dr was on time but the hospital staff was not and he was kind enough to let us know. Surgery was scheduled for 8am, he started operation around 11. He was very courteous despite other reviews.

This appointment was a nightmare. We had a 1:00pm appt, took us back to a room at 2:40 and at 3:00pm I asked for my paperwork so I could leave because the doctor had not come in yet and THEN, A DOCTOR came in, not Dr. Guarneri, but his associate! When he entered, he said "I didn't know that there was anyone back here"... (meaning this particular room) He spent 5 minutes at the most with us and that was that. The office staff is a mess and does not seem to have a handle on things at all.

Would not recommend. No respect for time, always late. Very bad bedside manner and somewhat of an attitude conplex. I wish I had researched better. I am going to get all of his worked check out by a more respectable doctor.

To begin my appt. was rescheduled multiple times because of them. Regarding my appointment with Dr. G., I would sum it up with two words: Disrespectful & Offensive! I went in for a hernia test, which I took very SERIOUSLY!!! after discovering a ball by my midsection. After this Dr. runs his test he decides to turn my appointment into a cosmetic visit, stating some very offensive comments to me. A simple "NO, It's not a hernia" would have suffice. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL & MINDLESS. NEVER AGAIN!

I can't comment on anything other than the Dr. being on time. After being called the day of my first appointment to reschedule I received another call attempting to reschedule me again. I told them that was fine but I was already rescheduled once. After she heard that she kept the appointment for me. I should've taken this as a sign. I got to the office and waited over an hour and the Doctor wasn't even there. I left and will not be going back.

My first office visit at Dr. Guarneri's Plantation office was very disappointing. Though his staff was pleasant, he was not. It appeared as though he was training his assistants during my visit. His tone towards the young ladies was condescending and unprofessional. After waiting for over an hour to be seen by Dr. Guarneri, he came in the room with me and treated me as though I was a cattle in the herd. He received one star due to his caring assistants. I would not recommend Dr. Guarneri.

As a nurse who has worked at this hospital for 7 years I was absolutely disgusted with how my mother was treated. She went in for surgery & was instructed to get there at 8 am. They did not take her back until 6 pm. 18 hours without eating & sitting in the waiting area. When she came out of surgery a resident updated my father (no, not the surgeon who had them wait an entire day) & could not answer his questions. They sent her home before midnight as she was puking out the door. Disappointing.
