Dr Gutsin is always helpful. He is one of the few doctors that would rather help a patient get healthy through a lifestyle change than just blindly writing out prescriptions for another pill. He and his staff make you feel like family. And if he doesn't have the ability to take care of an issue, the knows the right specialists that can take care of the issue. I will not take my son to any other GP.

I have been a patient of Dr G for about 15+ years. He is very compassionate, down to earth, caring man. His team are just as caring as he. I cannot imagine going anywhere else. Other Doctors that I have dealt with treat you as a "#" They keep you waiting (even when you have an appointment) and then kind of rush through your appointment. At Magnolia Family Medicine you are treated with respect and like a friend of the family. Thanks to MFM for making a difference!

Treated with disrespect, verbally abused and completely unacceptably by the staff. A doctor and his employees should speak professionally and sympathetically to the patients. Dr. Gutsin allows his billing employees and secretaries to treat and speak abhorrently to his patients, and allows them to hang up on the patient. I had strep throat for 6m, he gave me the same medication that was not working, and was having me return to see him EVERY week! Will never recommend them to anybody!

These guys are awesome you can't go wrong ..

Dr. Gutsin almost killed my father with his LACK of knowledge, interest, follow up, and so many other descriptions that would take too long to list. Long story short...labs were never explained in the correct manner and my father had diabetes and prostate cancer and didn't even know it until I asked him to request his records for me to review. Thankfully, we scheduled him to see someone else who saved his life and for that we are grateful that he is still here with us today. NEVER go to Magnolia

Dr Gutsin and his staff have always made me like part of their family. I enjoy being recognized as a person not just a patient. It's the best feeling to be greeted by name and made instantly felt welcome! There's nothing worse than going to a Dr not knowing if they remember anything about you! They have always been accommodating even with last minute referrals and emergencies. I have seen them with an office full of sick people and still felt like I was their most important visit of the day!

This is, unequivocally, the worst medical experience I have EVER endured. The entire staff, with one exception, is completely rude, disrespectful and condescending. Dr. Gutsin becomes confused very easily, even during the most simple conversations, and fails to recognize the detrimental conduct of his staff. I contacted them to make a simple appt for a referral after breaking my leg over the weekend and ended up changing doctors because it's is such an inept practice. A truly awful experience.

The best doctor I've ever had! Dr. Gutsin is knowledgeable about several different areas of practice and is the first doctor I've ever had that took the time to sit down and talk with me instead of rushing in and out of the office! I would recommend him without reservation!
