Very good doctor, even though she was very busy, she took the time to do a procedure so I would not have to drive back from home which is 135 miles away.

I was also VERY pleased this doctor did not say anything negative about my weight. She was incredibly respectful when I said I had a skin fold I was concerned about and made no mention of me needing to lose weight to help the problem. She told me how I could treat and live in the body I have NOW. This meant the world to me.

Dr Guggina saved my life. She found ovarian cancer that had been missed by others. I can't thank her enough for ordering the necessary imaging. The cancer was found at stage 1.

This was one of the best medical experiences I have ever had. I give Dr. Guggina the highest possible rating. Dr. Guggina sat down facing me, clearly explained the options and consequences. She cared, took time and involved me in the decision. I feel totally satisfied with her care and professional expertise. I will highly recommend her to others.

Dr. Guggina is smart as a whip, personable, and fast-moving. On MyChart, I appreciated her signing her message to me with just her first name. Such informality enhances the fact that we're equals (socially, though not in terms of medical knowledge) and we're working together to solve my derm problems.

Dr Guggina is very competent, answered all my questions, helped me resolve a few skin issues, and removed a growth that looked similar to a melanoma I had, to make sure I did not have further melanomas. I found out toady (3 days later) that the growth is benign and I'm very relieved.
