Guthrie Patient: June 2018
My doctor is excellent!
Guthrie Patient: June 2018
Although I have almost no risk factors for cardiac disease the doctor recommended that I go on a statin. He acted more as a shill for the pharmaceutical industry than someone concerned for my health, He was practrcing statistical medicine. Returning home I discovered was parrroting the recommendation of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (something he did not explain). For someone who is an expert in geriatrics he had no interest in asking me about normal aging concerns (arthritis etc) which are in my record. I don't believe he even looked at my record. Since then I asked for a prescription for CPAP supplies.Five days later I am still waiting.

Guthrie Patient: April 2018
This provider is very likable and pleasant. However each visit is like a first visit.. I don't feel he knows me. He always seems interested but doesn't seem to remember what concerns I had at my last visit.
Guthrie Patient: March 2018
Best provider we've ever had. My husband also goes to him.
Guthrie Patient: March 2018
When I told him things about diet exercise he just looked at me - no comments would like a dr, that works with me!
Guthrie Patient: February 2018
It didn't seem that he had reviewed the many tests and procedures I had at Guthrie during the previous year.

Charlene Ng, RCNP spent time with me determining my current concerns, my physical assessment, etc. so that when Dr. Mwseige came to see me, he zeroed in on those specific points that needed to be addressed. It helped to complete my visit in a timely manner. The next visit to be scheduled including blood work was then directed/covered. I knew exactly what was to be done at the end of the next (6) month period.
