Patient Comments (5)

I cannot begin to explain how insensitive he was. I witnessed him yelling at his staff & slamming things around the procedure room. This was the first time I saw him. He never called with my endoscopy results, I received them in the mail 3 weeks later. His office refused to schedule a colonoscopy...more

First time to see Dr. Guarisco. He listened and responded. He explained and let me make my decision. Very pleasant. Looking forward to following up what we began.

Dr. Guarisco was completely insensitive about my IBS issues I've had since I was 16, I'm now 44! All he wanted to do was a colonoscopy and pretty much shut down completely after that. Very discouraging visit to say the least.

Since I was seeing Dr. Guarisco for the FIRST time, I was expecting a more comprehensive visit. He seemed to be rushed and spent little time asking questions. Essentially wrote me a prescription and was on his way. Not the kind of doctor I need or want.

This doctor didn't want to be bothered with me or my medical issues. I was only able to talk to the NP. Turns out my issues were life threatening and required multiple surgeries. No compassion.
