I was admitted to Swedish under emergency conditions after a deer ran out in front of the motorcycle I was riding. Dr. McGuire and a group of underlings came into my room for morning rounds, asked a couple of questions and left. All six of those doctors practice "BALANCE BILLING", which means they will take whatever your insurance company pays and then BILL YOU FOR THE BALANCE! Beware!!! This practice is ILLEGAL at the federal level (Medicare & Medicaid) as well as in several states. It is an act that victimizes people in a vulnerable situation who had no control over who walked into the room. It is predatory -- yes, I said predatory. Nine months into this and still trying to heal, I am stuck playing the interface between Regence BlueShield and the doctors from a paperwork standpoint (they won't speak with each other). Even the appeal process sucks the life out of you because Regence loses the paperwork, the doctor's "billing office" staff are constantly harrassing you with multiple mailing of statements with stupid stamps on them that say "contact your insurance company regarding this account", etc. NINE months later there is still no resolution. The doctors are counting on you not fighting back and the responsibility for all of this crap is placed squarely on the shoulders of the PATIENT/VICTIM!!!! Contact your state legislature and office of insurance commissioner and work with me to get this predatory practice of balance billing outlawed in all 50 states. I'm giving him one star because I'm forced to pick at least one star to post this comment.
Sorry to read the poor reviews. Dr. McGuire performed three abdominal surgeries on me within four months and was very attentive and caring, as were the other surgeons on his team. Six months later, I have fully recovered from what was a rocky experience. I can only praise him for his care and skill.
Dr. McGuire was one of the attending physicians for my mother who was admitted to the ER at Swedish Medical Center after a full day of extreme abdominal pain and nausea. She was diagnosed with a partial bowel obstruction, and Dr. McGuire's advised treatment was to monitor her condition conservatively in an effort to avoid surgery. The care that she "received" was anything but conservative. She spent almost a full day in the ER unseen by doctors. Two days later she had passed away. Dr. McGuire failed to notice that she had no discernible blood pressure and was tachycardic (red flags indicating a need for IMMEDIATE surgery), and therefore left her to die. By the time her condition was noticed, it was too late. She passed away two days later. Please take extreme caution if you or a loved one receives medical care from Dr. McGuire. Additionally, please read the other reviews for him on this page, as it's abundantly clear that his incompetence and lack of consideration has negatively effected many patients in the past. In my opinion, a terrible, terrible doctor.
