Guthrie Patient: January 2019
I sent a message thru eguthrie requesting information a few days before my appointment. No reply received.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
Good experience, but would probably suggest *Dr. Tinsley at Arnot Health due to proximity and background. 7. RN, BSN & NA - no problem. 9. Though perhaps not surgery unless trained beyond PA.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
James was excellent and went above and beyond to calm my nervousness of having him freeze and then scope my nose/throat. He took much time to answer all my many questions and was very pleasant. I would highly recommend him.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Only problem will be the follow up apparently required appt. Provider is busier than planned. One week has turned into 2 1/2. However, I am fine.
Guthrie Patient: May 2018
He was awesome - explained everything perfectly.
Guthrie Patient: April 2018
I felt I was listened to.
Guthrie Patient: January 2018
All my experience with *Dr. Cagir was always very good, he was very professional with me. He's a great asset as a surgeon and very caring.
Guthrie Patient: December 2017
i would like to see the Dr. more often. I usually see PA.
Guthrie Patient: October 2017
James Biery is a wonderful physician assistant. Dr. Pelliterri is lucky to have him. He's hard working and on top of his game.
