Guthrie Patient: January 2018
He didn't give me any answers on why I have swollen lymph noes or swollen cartilage in my neck I felt it was a big waste of time and he thought I could have tonsillitis and couldn't even tell my tonsils were already surgically removed.
Guthrie Patient: December 2017
Had to wait a week to see if biopsy was cancerous as 1st ENT surgeon expected. Strange that a 3rd yr. med student who asked why were there was the one to tell us it wasn't! Awkward!
Guthrie Patient: December 2017
Excellent provider.
Guthrie Patient: November 2017
Very good doctor. Matter of fact kind of guy. Direct-to the point. Easy to understand; spoke in plain English not wishy washy. Really like him.
