My Appreciation for Dr. Gura
Self-verified patient of Dr. Victor Gura - Posted on February 15th, 2014
I was very shocked to hear the negative comments mentioned on the internet about Dr. Victor Gura. To the contrary we have found his professionalism demeanor, bedside manor and over all attention to detail to be of the highest standard. I wish all doctors had a little of Dr. Gura in them. Coming from the south, (North Carolina) and having dealt with doctors there, Dr. Gura was like a fresh breath of air. My wife and I appreciate and was very surprised to see how much time he would spend with us regarding our medical needs. Sometimes he would show humor, pertaining to a subject I was overly concerned about with my health, putting my wife and I at ease. I should say I have had problems with my heart, high cholesterol among other things and since I have been under his care, my health as turned around one hundred percent. So much I have created these lyrics, "Here he comes to save the day, Dr. Gura is on his way." When you take his office manager combined with his nurse, you get a complete package for overall concern of the patients well being.

Doctor Victor Gura, MD. Is one of the worse bedside mannered physicians I've ever met in my life. I felt completely uncomfortable having Doctor Victor Gura as a specialist. He didn't seem competent enough to show respect to his patients, nevertheless to rely on his medical expertise. I believe a physicians mannerism reflex directly on the level of quality medical care they provide to their patients. Needless to say i would not recommend Doctor Vitor Gura. Not only he makes you wait over an hour every time you go for a visit at his office, but his arrogance will disgust you and make you wonder how he has been in practice for so long.

I worked for a patient of Dr. Gura's as caregiver for years and I observed his professional work ethic at the same time his incredible heart. Dr. Gura has excellent communication with the other physicians, clients and their family members. He distinguished himself as a Doctor from taking his time to consider and explain various options and recommend treatment considerations using a language that "normal people" can understand. Not to mention his charm and great sense of humor. We absolutely adore him.
Dr. Gura_Absolutely the best.

He is an amazing and wonderful doctor and human being.
