Dr. Miswegie is excellent. You can tell he cares.

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.

Best provider we've ever had. My husband also goes to him.
