Competent professional care and everybody was very nice.
He was FANTASTIC! He was quick but also maintained a great bed-side manner.
Focused, thoughtful and friendly. Spent the time to understand the issues and walk us through approaches to tackle the problem. Highly satisfied With this excellent first visit.
Dr. Gurian listened to me and helped me make a plan for my symptoms which is more than I can say for most doctors I’ve seen in recent years. He has a great bedside manner and was very helpful. I left feeling hopeful that I’ll figure out what is going on with me. I would definitely recommend him.
Cheryl was our Audiologist, excellent, very concise with her explanations. We see Dr Gurian on Thursday, 11 October.
He was really nice!
Dr. Gurian was extremely attentive to my concerns and addressed them thoroughly. Very professional and personable. Highly recommend.
Good visit. Great staff. And the Doc was cool. If any ear issues happen, I will be using Doctor Gurian.
Seemed very familiar with the pulsatile tinnitus I am experiencing and ordered some additional testing to determine appropriate treatment. Received thorough hearing test as well. Office is set up well. Only negative was $12 parking garage fee - they don’t validate.
Simple, clear explanation and treatment.
The staff was friendly, the audiologist was very nice and thorough with explanations. Dr. Gurian was awesome, a very nice man, he took his time and explained everything he was doing and why. I highly recommend Dr. Gurian and his staff.
So happy that I found Dr. Gurian! Everyone in office was very friendly. Dr. Gurian took time to review my CT and throughly explain results to me. Will definitely go back.
I was impressed with every member of the staff with whom I came in contact. Everyone - and I mean EVERY one - was pleasant, professional, thoughtful, prompt and kind. All qualities which make for a stress-free medical appointment!
Very good communication with discussion of options for next steps. Staff was caring, friendly, and professional.
Dr. Gurian is engaging, knowlegeable and has a sense of humor. His office staff is are pleasant and professional. I recommend him.
Very knowledgeable and caring
Dr. Gurian was amazing he really was informative.
Dr. Gurian was a good listener and professional in his examination and treatment of my ailment. His reception staff was very efficient and friendly in their greeting and treatment of patients.
Wait time can be a bit long, not sure why they send you to the room only to wait for 20+ minutes (we have a toddler), but Dr. Gurian himself is terrific, both in bedside manner, full explanations, and careful deliberation as to choices of how to proceed (in our case with chronic ear infections and consideration of ear tubes for our child).
I was not as impressed with the nursing staff as the doctor or the administrative personnel. The doctor was great, caught me a little off guard when he asked me to tell him my story and seemed generally interested in the details. Also impressed with his reasonable approach to getting to the bottom of my complaints.
Dr. Gurian was excellent. I had to wait a little bit but he was worth the wait. He was able to diagnose and treat me better than other doctors in the past.
Very thorough evaluation. Excellent communicator. Pleasant and professional. Very helpful and reassuring.
Office staff were very receptive. Dr. Gurian was very professional and informative during his examination / procedures.
I made an appointment because of difficulty hearing in my ear. They removed earwax and did a hearing test and them I met with the doctor. Pretty thorough and it went pretty fast.
Dr Gurian allowed plenty of time to get a full background and gave thorough consideration to my case. I only wish every doctor has his same personal, caring approach. Highly recommend!
Dr. Gurian has always been capable and communicative about your examination. I never hesitate to turn to him on any ENT issue.
The office told me to show up 20 minutes early for my first appointment, but I had to wait 60 minutes until the doctor was able to attend to me because he was overbooked. When we met, he was pretty brusque in diagnosis (ostensibly because he was running behind) and did not really provide any substantive treatment plan.
Expand the waiting room. Way too small and cramped. You have the space elsewhere. It would be a pretty easy fix if you took part of the checkin area and added it to the waiting room.
He is a very good listener and very sincere. He pays a lot attention to details about the problem. I like him very much.
very efficient and friendly office management Dr. Gurian was able to quickly assess and treat my problem
Always a pleasure to see Dr. Gurian. He obviously enjoys his work and is good with patients. He's also very good about explaining what he is doing and answering any questions you have.
Outstanding Dr. Very knowledgeable.
Dr. Gurian saw me quickly and was helpful in diagnosing my problem. He offered three different treatment options and reviewed each of them with me. He is professional, and I'd see him again.
Very friendly and helpful office.
Dr. Gurian listened to my concerns and didn't rush to solve the issue with drugs -- an approach I liked. He was timely and his evaluation was extremely thorough. I would highly recommend him. The office staff were professional and didn't make stupid mistakes as is common at other offices. Overall, very pleased.
Very good, explained things thoroughly.
Excellent medical advice and discussion of problem
Very confident and knowledgeable. He was able to treat me quickly and efficiently.
He was a bit dismissive
Very professional, felt like he actually listened to me and my concerns and took them seriously, was extremely knowledgeable. Best doctor experience I've had in a while!
Very good assessment, clear explanations and directions
Very easy to get along with, but also very to-the-point and helpful.
Thorough with history but unable to help with symptoms or provide diagnosis.
Enjoyed meeting the doctor. Found him to be very knowledgeable with a great personality. Did not rush the appointment.
The Doctor was professional, explained my situation and answered my questions. It was a good experience.
