Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Dr. Galyanova is always direct and honest.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Dr. Galyanova clearly is an excellent doctor/GP (for me). Very good judgment. highly level-headed on amore general as well as also specific medical questions. She gave me several recommendations for specialists - and they all were exactly what I needed - highly knowledgable, and with whom I could talk the problems through to come to a reasonable (I think and my body seems to agree!) decision how to proceed.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Dr. Galyanova always contradicts what I tell her and tells me I am wrong about what I think is happening. She is refusing to consider giving me prescription I was given by a specialist and couldn't afford at the time but could now with different insurance. (I have a chronic cough and she ordered a pulmonary function test but won't prescribe the inhaler I used to have.) She is almost always dismissive about my concerns. I think she thinks I'm a hypochondriac. I don't bring her any problem unless I really think I need to because she is so disrespectful.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
This doctor hardly looked away from the computer screen during my consultation. I was coming in to establish care. I mentioned I recently had a miscarriage and was trying to get pregnant and she did not show any interest or offer any advice. She later asked if I was depressed while she stared at the computer screen. I am not, but if I was I certainly wouldn't feel like telling her.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
This Dr. is very rude. She could care less what I was saying. She gave me no feedback. My girlfriend was with me as well and she was also very surprised in the lack of professionalism. Why can I never get my dr with Guthrie? Also, the X-ray tech didn't seem to know what he was doing.. he had me sitting up pushing my toes with a pen while he X-rayed me 4x. Shouldn't I have had a lead vest on? Wish I never went. When looking at the bad xrays she even said 'you gotta be kidding me'
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
new year, Im looking for a new doctor now.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
I felt she is very competent but she didn't explain anything to me very well.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr. Galyanova is the most thorough physician that I've ever had the pleasure to be a patient of. She explains things in detail and in simple terms, and she always shows that she cares about my health and well-being.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
I did not feel supported or heard by this care provider. I will not be returning to her for any future visits.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
My appointment should not have been made. I was told she could not help me and I would need to go to the ER. My chart wasn't even read before I was seen.
