Patient Comments (4)

Long story short. After almost 6 months, and seeing two other Dr.’s, who did nothing for me at all, I went to see Dr. Guinn, and I give him a terrific review. His staff as well, were very attentive, polite and professional. DO NOT waste your time with anyone one else. He is the best.
