Philosophy Of Care

I believe that good patient care comes from good patient communication. Healthcare is a partnership between you and your doctor and should never be perceived otherwise. Effective medicine and patient outcomes stem from a strong alliance between patient and healthcare provider who have common goals to achieve a healthy well-being.

mostly good, but in discussing my BMI she made several assumptions about my diet without actually asking me what I eat. she also focused on losing weight to improve BMI without actually discussing holistic healthful nutrition. the focus was more on restriction, calorie tracking and cutting things out rather than striving for adequate nutrients which was disappointing.

Dr DeGuzman is always a professional and caring practitioner. She reminds me of questions to ask that I have not asked

we feel the doctor is not listening to our concerns for our child; simply medicating

Did not feel rushed. Dr was very thorough.

Being that this was my first appointment I felt rushed as I had a list of things to talk about. I could tell she was getting a little flustered and was trying to leave a couple of times but I needed some answers on some things. in the rush she forgot to order one prescription for me. She told me we would finish my questions next appointment I made in 4 weeks. I was fine with that. She seems to be a nice person.
No Rating Given
I felt rushed. The physician didn't even know I had lab results to discuss. She never reviewed my blood work with me b/c she didn't even know I already had the results. I felt rushed and she seemed off & not as through as she has been in past.
No Rating Given
A very good experience.
