I arrived at the office 20 minutes early and I was taken right away. The assistant who did my vision test was friendly and efficient...and seeing Dr. Guthrie twice a year is always a pleasure. It's gratifying to develop a relationship with a doctor and I feel Dr. Guthrie has taken good care of my eyes over the years...

Dr. Guthrie was nice, but not pleasant. She was knowledgeable, but not professional. She dismissed me for coming in for a routine eye exam and insulted my place of work. Worst of all, I developed a severe eye infection afterwards. I will not return.

I did not feel a connection, she was okay, and just that..."okay". I like a doctor whom I feel is concerned about my particular situation and provides sufficient info to me and know correctly how to handle it. She told me I needed a prescription, gave me a coupon but no prescription and recommended a particular contact lens solution. My eyes were not ready to go back to lens. and the Dr. I am seeing now told me that. Dr. Guthrie asked me to make a follow-up appointment but I knew before I left that I did not want to continue my care under Dr. Guthrie.

I have been going to Dr. Guthrie for 10 years. She is knowledgeable and competent and has a relaxed and friendly professional manner. With her, you always feel like you're interacting with a real person who happens to also be your ophthalmologist. She remembers you and relates to you as a whole person, not just as someone with a pair of eyes.
