Dr. G is absolutely Amazing! He really listens and cares about his patients. He is wise and empathetic... but also gives guidance and knowledge to what it is I am struggling with. For example: I am 35 years old, and 1.5 years ago I found out I needed total hip replacement surgery. I literally laid in bed, stuck inside my own head; agonizing over the fact i was getting the top of my femur cut off, and a prosthetic hammered in... I would not have been brave enough to follow thru with this life-changing surgery, without Dr. G. He truly cares about his patients, is NEVER JUDGING, and spends extra time to help those that need it. He also is very thorough, and takes into account the healthiest way to treat his patients... he knows his medicine. Dr. G is detail-oriented but still makes you feel comfortable around him, you can tell him anything, and he's not judging you. He is also really funny! Life is too short..If you want to feel better, see Dr. G

I cannot emphasize enough on how great Dr G is . He’s by far the best doctor I have ever been too or heard of . He literally took time out on Christmas Day to meet my husband who had a manic episode and was so helpful. He is always available and gives you the ease of mind . If you or your loved one is in need of a great doctor then please go to Dr. G and thank me later

I’ve been seeing Dr. G for three years now. I could never ask for a better doctor. He’s kind, compassionate, always picks up his phone no matter what time if you need him. He’s helped me work through and learn to control my anxiety. I used to have panic attacks all the time and was consumed with stress and fear. I’ve recently only had one in six months. After seeing him I feel like myself again and am starting to begin to become confident and blossom into who I’m meant to be. I drive an hour both ways to see him each month. He treats his patients like family.

Dr. Guarino is one of the most outstanding doctors I have had the joy of knowing and it has been a blessing to have him in my life, as my doctor. He is very understanding with a jovial and kind nature that has made it very easy for me to speak with him. His gentleness and sincerity are a testament to the quality of care you will receive. Dr. Guarino is careful in his choices of medicinal treatments, their benefits and risks, and he encourages the patient's involvement on being an integral part in determining what works best for them. If you have any concerns about anything pertaining to the problems you are experiencing, Dr. Guarino is thorough in his explanations of them. Dr. Guarino is very knowledgeable and that has made me feel confident and grateful for his guidance.

I have been working with Dr. Guarino for about a month now. I am amazed with how flexible and available he has been to me to make sure my medications are working well for me. I would definitely recommend him as he is very knowledgeable and available which is rare to find in a psychiatrist.

Dr. G really wants to help you live your best life. Thank you Dr. G.

I’ve been with Dr. Guarino for the past year. Came in looking for help after consulting so many other doctors and only after a year of treatment my life has become so much better. Dr. Guarino is a very professional and straight forward Dr. If you re looking for somebody that is truthful and straight to the point Dr. Guarino’s discipline will be the best thing that happens to you!!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Guarino for about two years and highly recommend him! He’s extremely knowledgeable, professional, and experienced. I’ve had too many unfortunate experiences with other various medical professionals in my lifetime. But I feel very understood and comfortable with Dr. Guarino and his expertise. He takes the time to explain and converse while many other doctors I’ve seen have generally been dismissive of significant and relevant matters. He never fails to be a wonderful and accommodating doctor who genuinely cares.

Doctor. Guarino has been more than accommodating and steady minded with me since i started seeing him about half a year ago. He is always respectful and cognizant of my work scheduling. In addition, makes the time to care for my health, and mental stability. Lucky to of met a doctor who still cares for their patients the way Dr.Guarino does. 5/5 reccomended.

I was so lucky to get a referral to Dr. Guarino! Before meeting him, I was lost. I had visited a psychologist but did not feel supported, or even understood. My symptoms came and went but there was no real improvement. Dr. Guarino saw right through my issues and gave me direction. He really cares about patients, he is flexible with scheduling and always makes himself available. He goes above and beyond in caring for his patients. He even called me while he was on vacation to make sure I was fine! This that had never happened to me with any other physician. I totally recommend him.

If you are struggling finding a solution for your depression and anxiety. I would highly recommend Dr. Guarino! I was seeing a previous psychiatrist who was keen on drownings my struggles with medications that were counteracting their effectiveness. I was stuck feeling stagnant for almost a year. I finally decided to seek out another Dr. with a more effective approach. I was referred to Dr. Guarino & I couldn’t be happier! I am off all 3 past meds. And now taking just one with results in <2 wks!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Guarino. My only regret is that I didn't find him sooner in my life. Within the first 5 minutes of my initial visit with Dr. Guarino he understood exactly what was troubling me and made me feel at ease that with his help we would get through this together. He literally made my pain his problem. His interest in my recovery was and continues to be a personal matter to him. I am forever grateful for his kindness, knowledge and human quality!
