Guthrie Patient: December 2018
i will always reccomend Dr, Reese and the Guthrie OBGYN team over any other OB care providers!
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
I wouldn't recommend anyone going anywhere else for serious health concerns
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr. Rees was excellent with providing me with options and helping me make the right decision for me.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Dr. Rees is a wonderful doctor, his bedside manner, unfortunately, is less than impressive. He pointed out needing my glucose test early due to my size. Which, is fine, I am well aware I am on the heavier side. However, it made me feel worthless and like I was some type of sick person for being the size I am. Also, pointing it out in front of my husband was quite embarrassing. Being almost 6 months pregnant, it's already hard to maintain self confidence without someone pointing out your flaws even more. I am well aware this is his job, but never have I been embarrassed by a doctor ever in the Guthrie group.
Guthrie Patient: May 2018

Guthrie Patient: March 2018
*Dr. Rees is caring, yet to the point! Really like this abt. him.
Guthrie Patient: March 2018
dr. Reese was very kind and answered all of my questions. his office treated my pregnancy and baby as a special thing. this is our 5th baby and not all providers acted the same. so that made a difference to my husband and I. Dr Rees is always kind and considerate.
Guthrie Patient: November 2017
Very knowledgeable about all my concerns -
Guthrie Patient: November 2017
Dr. Rees is an excellent physician that provides the highest level of care in knowledge, expertise, surgical precision and compassion. I have and continue to highly recommend him to all women I know who need an OBGYN. I feel lucky to have him in this area and he is one of the best providers I have had in both the northern and southern tiers.
