I found DR. Mwsiege to be very interested in my problems and eager to help me find answers to my questions. My wife was with me and he was helpful in answering her questions. I am looking forward to my next visit.

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.
