Dr. Guthrie was very thorough in her examination and had excellent bedside manner. Her staff was extremely friendly and helped me with an insurance matter before my appointment.

The doctor was fantastic. Super kind and concerned with my condition. She offered me advice on different things I could use along with medication to help ease my condition. Even when I expressed stresses in my career life, she felt the need to offer advice and help. She genuinely cared about making her patient happy and didn't treat me as a task to complete.

Dr. Guthrie was very understanding about my circumstance. She was comforting and encouraged me (with a few personal stories) and gave me the courage to check my eye sight annually despite the more than likely chance that I'll receive bad news. She also referred me to a great specialist for which I am very grateful.

Dr. Guthrie was great, personable, professional and efficient. She answered all my questions and made me feel at ease while delivering less than stellar news. Her staff member who did the pre-exam was equally kind and competent, as well as made sure I understood their fee structure for contacts and consulting. A very pleasant experience overall.
