Dr. Meyer was my cardiologist for nearly a decade. When he retired unexpectedly, my file passed to Dr. Guerra, whom I'd never seen before. My initial consultation with Dr. Guerra was EXCELLENT. He was courteous, knew my history & carefully reviewed it with me. Good bedside manner, personable. I look forward to continuing with him as my cardiologist.

I first met Dr. Guerra because my 92 yr old friend had a heart attack. He put a stent in and she was fine. He was so kind to all of us that were waiting. He took time to answer all our questions. I became a patient of his about 3 years ago. His staff, especially his nurse Molly, go out of their way to help me. I had insurance issues and she handled appeals for me several times. I don’t have heart issues just blood pressure and cholesterol issues. He takes time for my problems and is so nice! I highly recommend him.

There is only one word to describe Dr. Guerra himself and that is EXCELLENT!!! The operation side of his practice will require three words NOT SO GOOD!!! They may be over booking, on my first visit I had to wait over 1 hour after appointment time to see the Dr. Guerro, and the second time was more than 30 minutes. The staff needs a pretty good dose of training, but their manners are not bad. To wind it up when it comes to my Ticker Dr. Guerro will be my repairman. One last observation you might have your housekeeping crew dust the tables in the waiting room, and might even run a mop across the floors.

It was an annual visit with Doctor Guerra. Dr. Guerra is never in a hurry to leave the appointment and is willing to listen to any concerns I might have. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Guerra. His staff, nurses and everyone I’ve contacted have all been great.
