Dr. Guitart is an excellent CTCL dr, he does research for CTCL & Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation, Dermatology students are required to spend 6 weeks learning about this CTCL & he works them to help them recognize this very rare disease. He is very concerned about my general health in addition to this disease I have & 2 variants- follicular mycosis fungoides & large cell. He did a genetic study of my recent biopsy & he brought the results to discuss with me.

He is knowledgeable, very patient oriented, best in his CTCL derm & derm pathology anywhere. Because of the rarity of CTCL, he is still able to find a solution to any problem that comes up & continues to try something else if it's not working. He takes as much time is needed at each visit, listening to problems that I had since the last visit & answering any questions. He is available to call if there are new symptoms & he will have me come in the next Tuesday. He is personable.
