BEWARE: roberto guerrero of childrens's gastroenterology of south florida is unprofessional and acts incapable of establishing a decent relationship with his clients because he is disconnected, can barely understand him as he rambles on to himself, rude nonchalant attitude, and very impatient. he seems like another money hungry doc! he made my child very uncomfortable and we were disrespected the whole time there. His staff was okay but, I would not recommend roberto guerrero to anyone

Dr Guerrero is excellent. He is calm and patient. He provided a lot of information and education on my child's condition and is guiding us through step by step care. We haven't felt rushed and have never had to wait long at all. His staff is excellent as well. They are all very sweet and kind.

My experience was beyond pleasant. After reading the reviews I had low standards going in, but he is one of two providers in my network. We had an afternoon new patient appointment. The wait was short; back in the room within 15 minutes of arriving. The staff was personable and the doctor was thorough. He does mumble, but he is a wonderful GI doctor. Would highly recommend.

Plan on bringing something to do. He keeps you waiting for a long time. Our first appointment we waited one and half hours. I'm here now and it's been 55 minutes. He is very hard to understand. I looked for another children's gastro that takes our insurance and had no luck. I guess we are stuck here. We need more children's gastro in the area!

Dr. Guerrero is an awful, heartless doctor. He is very confusing and mumbles when he talks. He is impatient and doesn't like answering questions. He even refused to see my daughter when she was extremely sick. He does not give helpful advice. He is not compassionate and runs his office like a business. I do NOT recommend to anyone.

I was referred by my pediatrician to see Dr Guerrero. My daughter had been having stomach issues for years. Dr Guerrero is very knowledgeable and explained several diagnosis to me. He was very patient with me and had excellent bedside manner. My daughter required an endoscopy which confirmed his diagnosis. We will be continuing to follow up with him frequently.
