 |  An hour and a half to confirm I had strep, which I already knew  |  show details
Aug 1st, 2014

I was able to get an appointment with the nurse practitioner the day I called since I just needed a strep test. And she was fine--very nice and gave me accurate information. But I had to wait over an hour just to be called for the throat swab. People who arrived after I did were seen and finished before I was even seen! I guess they don't "like" first-time patients. Then of course one has to wait for the rapid culture results, so it was an hour and a half before I even saw the nurse practitioner. Ridiculous!!!

Referred by my pharmacist. Dr. Gutsmann is a caring doctor. She listens, and give a clear explanation on the follow-up of labwork. I liked her so much that I sent my daughter to her, who is now too old for her pediatrician. My daughter really likes her. She accepts walk-ins. and cash customers. I have insurance and had no problems with them filing. Phone calls were returned quickly by the nurse. The staff at the front desk could improve. I find I spend lots of time waiting in doctor's offices and at fast food restaurants.

 |  Very pleased with Dr. Gutsmann  |  show details
by Kim S. on May 17th, 2013

I have been very pleased with my experience as a patient of Dr. Gutsman. She has helped me deal with post-menopausal issues - especially hot flashes - by prescribing bio-identical hormone replacements. They've worked great - any issues I was having are completely dealt with. She also impresses me in other ways: sets a great example in diet & exercise, very friendly and personable, as well as very genuine in her comments and advice. The one area that is frustrating is the unnecessarily long wait times for appointments. This could be a symptom of the positive things I mentioned - if she's taking time with me, maybe she's also taking time with other patients. If there was a way to fix this problem, I would be 100% satisfied.

 |  Changing to a new family doctor... very disappointed in service.  |  show details
by Candy M on Apr 23rd, 2013

Front office staff is horrible and not very friendly and the wait time is ridiculous to see the doctor. We have been to 4 different office visits in the last 7 months and on all occasions we had to wait almost an hour to been seen.

 |  Long Wait Times, Understaffed, Money Hungry  |  show details
Mar 28th, 2013

Be prepared to wait and be annoyed. We always have to wait about 1 hour or longer despite having an appointment. In addition, I tried to start the weight loss program but decided after the blood work and EKG that I wanted to go elsewhere because their scheduling is awful with 2 week delays due to understaffing. They wouldn't provide a partial refund for services not rendered. Charged me $375 for bloodwork and EKG that a different office only charges $70 for. They have been without a PA for 6 months. This doctor is too cheap to hire enough staff to keep appointment schedules and times running smoothly and NEVER refunds for anything. Find a better doctor who cares about the quality of care rather than just the money they can save.

Most of the time, the PA look at the patient. The Doctor hardly look at the patient.

 |  Dr. was ok!!! HORRIBLE MANAGER and HORRIBLE STAFF  |  show details
Jan 20th, 2012

The Dr. is generally just ok (for being a clinic of course)... HER MANAGER is horrible, not very smart, seems to be uneducated and or has no managerial experience, extremely frumpy looking, and is just not professional when she is explaining a financial issue. Mngr is like a puppet!!! Oh and the mngr does not portray a good image for an office that promotes weight loss !!Staff was all new everytime I went (only went 3 times). No privacy, I heard the Dr. talking about a patients issue while sitting in the centrally located area, a nurse giving bad results over the phone to a patient and the front person arguing with a patient over a balance...all while waiting in line to pay my copay. Not to mention the office always claims to have their system down, Internet, fax machine etc. all 3 times I was seen there. Over all just not a good environment !!! Won't be going back to that place.

Dr. Gutsmann spent a great deal of time going over my medical issues. It was very refreshing considering other doctors I have seen spent less than five minutes with me.
