Dr. McGuire is an extremely skilled surgeon. He was able to remove my gallbladder laparoscopically even though it was adhered to my liver and abdomen. He did a great job and I have been sore but pain free from day one. If I need another surgery I will use him again. I will recommend Dr. McGuire to my friends and family.

My father saw Dr. McGuire the first time in September for an infected cyst on his chest. Dr. McGuire scheduled him for surgery the next day due to the severe nature of infection in a cancer/chemo patient. Taught my mother and me how to do wet to dry packing dressings. Today we had to see him again. My father's chemo is finished and the PET scan revealed new nodes in his neck and right axillary region. Will have a biopsy appointment soon.

Amazing staff and amazing doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. McGuire to anyone. I was referred by my primary care provider to have my inguinal hernia repaired. He took the time to explain all the risks in detail with my wife and I. My wife came in with a list of questions and he stayed in the room with us until we went through each question with him. The office staff was wonderful and got me in quickly since I was in so much pain before my surgery. Thank you for your excellent care.

Very poor bedside manner. What was supposed to be a 3 day stay in the hospital turned into over a 4 month problem and 3 month hospital stay. Plus home health care and non stop vomiting and nausea. DO NOT USE DR. MCGUIRE FOR ANY, AND I MEAN AND I MEAN ANY PROCEDURES!
