Guthrie Patient: February 2019
This is the second time I have had a procedure done by Dr.Fanelli and his team.I am very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.He delivers excellence.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
thorough and informative
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
I had to get CT SCAN it's been a week and I have not heard from anyone. It should not take a week to read CT and get back to patient burning in my groin. I want to get another appointment and get it taken care of. BAD EXPERIENCE.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Excellent experience for both my pre-outpt surgery visit; surgery experience and follow up with Dr. Fanelli. He has a great team and I was extremely happy with the outcome of my scheduled outpt surgery
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Dr. Fanelli answered all of my questions regarding my surgery. He was very kind.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
I was not fully conscious for most of the experience. The provider was pleasant and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Fanelli as a professional, but because of the treatment I received checking in was so poor, I would not recommend Guthrie to my worst enemy.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
Outstanding doctor! Accurately assessed my issue, recommended appropriate care and treatment, performed procedure, and I am feeling like a new person. I have been to multiple doctors, at numerous clinics/hospitals and did not get appropriate assessment and treatment. I find Dr. Fanelli and my issue has been resolved with a simple, yet effective procedure. I am very grateful to him and his outstanding staff!
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
excellent surgeon!!
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
He spent exactly 30 seconds with me before I went for the colonoscopy. He asked me a couple of questions with his back turned to me, glanced at me maybe once. daddies not explain the procedure in any way.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Overall, the entire team did a commendable job of taking me through the whole experience from initial tests and questions to the final follow up visit.
