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!

A phenomenal doctor who goes above and beyond for his patients. Very responsive to texts and calls and always willing to help out (he even offered to drive me to the metro to make my commute to his office easier). He is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me turn my life around when I was at my worst.

I have been to several doctors for my issues and I have found Dr. Guarino to be the best choice for me. Dr. Guarino listens carefully and is very knowledgeable about my issues. He has a great gentle personality and makes me feel comfortable and secure in our meetings. I can call him if I have any questions or concerns and he is very quick to respond. I appreciate Dr. Guarino and I will recommend him highly.

W/ no hesitation I believe Dr. Guarino is one of the best physicians in NOVA. He is attentive, flexible, professional, & goes above & beyond to accommodate my scheduling needs. He is well informed and up to date in the latest research. What I find most impressive and rare is his ability to allow me to share as little or as much as I am comfortable with, without ever making me feel rushed. In 2017 it is hard to find a psychiatrist w/skills of psychoanalysis that combines them w/pharmacotherapy.

Dr. Guarino is awesome! The number one thing that shows a Doctor really cares is making themselves available for you when you need them - not based on office hours. He always responds to calls and messages right away and even takes late appointments - 6 pm. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Guarino is a professional, punctual, and passionate mental health provider. He helped me when others wouldn't make time to see me and provided the health care I needed.
