No longer a patient

When I read a glowing report about this doctor, I wonder if this is the same doctor who treated me. I could develop no rapport with him due to his cold detached manner. I dreaded each visit. Granted, it has been some time since he treated me, but he did not improve my pain and his main treatment was the fentanyl patch. I don't believe this was a good or safe treatment for anyone. I always felt he was very negative. In short, he not only did not listen to me or help my pain, he made me feel bad about myself. I asked my primary care physician for a referral to a different pain management doctor and have been very happy with this doctor for the last several years. My pain is vastly improved and well controlled now.

Three Stars

The office is packed and one waits a long time to be seen. He is good, but the wait time is ridiculous.

One Star

This guy is interested in giving injections as often as possible, he could care less about you. He will take anyone that has insurance that will cover injections. He works 4 days a week and does the injections right in his office so he can do as many as possible. The waiting room is like the bar scene from Star Wars as he will take anyone that is covered for as many cortisone shots as possible! If you want to be treated like a human annuity that pays for his cars and toys, make an appointment as he will take you right away the first time just to get the fun started then if you want to speak to him ever again you have to get a cortisone injection.

Incompetent Support Staff

Mr

I do not recommend. I have been honest and a compliant patient for 12 years. He now refuses to see me and I do not know why. I am more than confused by this behavior. I have experienced drug mix ups over the years, the wrong drug prescribed, being denied medication at the pharmacy with out a phone call or the reason behind it. I have had only respect for this physician. But not it has eroded away because of behavior I do not understand. I cannot recommend him. There is something called the Hippocratic Oath. It is more Hippocritic Oath. A very unfortunate experience.

A Truly Gifted Doc with an Amazing Staff!

I have been a patient of Dr. Guarino's for over 1 year. In that time, he and his staff have always been very caring and accommodating. In addition, Dr. G is a very knowledgeable and talented doctor. I would recommend Dr. Guarino to anyone in need of a caring and talented pain management specialist.

The best pain doctor in the area

Dr. Guarino is the best pain doctor in the area. He takes the needs of his patients seriously and goes above and beyond to relieve their pain, and make life comfortable for them. His procedures are very safe and precise. His staff, very caring and concerned. Never had to wait in the waiting room, noe wait long for an appointment. Dr. guarino is a top doc in my book. If you are in pain and need relief, he is the one to go see.

Call patients if Doctor is running late

He is very good. He knows what he is doing but rather abrupt. I would be grateful if the staff would call in advance since I have a very long drive.I would advise getting a morning appointment instead of the afternoon.
