About Me

Care Philosophy

When I was in school, I received some advice that I still use today. A preceptor once told me to treat patients as if they were a friend or family member. I've tried to use that advice as the basis of my patient care philosophy. I think taking time with patients and listening to their concerns makes a big difference.

Chris has been working with me and my knee for over eight years. He has recommended treatments that have helped over the years (was operated on while in the Army in '69) which has allowed me to maintain my very active life. Also, Chris has been the assistant in surgeries for my wife's hip replacements and has done an excellent job. He always been responsive to questions for both of us. Very reliable.

Christopher Guth is one of the best PA-C around. He has been attending not only to myself and family but several of our friends for the past 12 years at least. He takes time not only to listen to you but explain anything in terms you understand. As we as seniors age that is very important to have physicians like Chris Guth in your life. Thanks for the great care you give to all of us. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.

I would recommend Dr Durham and Shane. Shane is easy to talk to and even his shots don't hurt too much. He answered any question I asked her even if it's something I didn't come in there for. He doesn't blow you off like you're just another number. I feel he really listens to you.

Chris has been caring for my 'bad' knees for about 6 years, since Dr. Carr passed away. I have received the most compassionate and honest care from Chris. Getting shots in your knees is not fun but Chris made it seem 'not so bad'. In January of this year I had the left knee replaced by Dr. Rowley and Chris. Chris has done my follow up. He is thorough and professional and made a difficult decision much more acceptable!
