I've never been seen by a friendlier, more attentive, or skillful physician than Dr. Gurian. In every visit I've had with him (well over six or seven), he's effectively diagnosed and treated my medical condition. His bedside manner is phenomenal and his medical expertise - not to mention his credentials - is formidable. He is always considerate of those "human" factors - pain/discomfort, finances, family life, etc. Any chance I get to visit with him is a true delight; as corny as it sounds - he's not just a wonderful doctor, he's a great human being. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended.

I felt like I wasted my time going here. I used to see his partner but she retired. He started out very professional but seemed uninterested in helping me with chronic sinus issues. Had to wait 40 mins to be seen and pay $9 for parking. I will not be going back

Dr. Gurian did a great job of replacing the tube I have in my eardrum....which I have to have done on a recurring basis due to childhood infections. Minimum discomfort, no pain, and relatively fast. He has mastered this procedure.

The reason I say probably recommend is because it was my first visit but do feel that the visit was adequate. The wait time I'm sure had some to due with paper work going threw and I have learned that a long wait can mean a good Dr that listens and do what is needed for a patient during a visit and if they take time for others then I know they will take time for me. I didn't get answers yet but feel the Dr is trying to and that's all I can ask for. I did feel very comfortable and not like a out cast or like I didn't need to be there and liked everyone's personality.

The office called me at home and told me to fill out the patient forms online - I did and it took about 15-20 minutes. However, when I got to the office, the person at the front desk said that not all of the forms transferred over to their system and I had to fill them out again. Very frustrating because I wasted my time filling it out online and then it asks for a list of all medicines including the dosage and strength and I did not bring the information with me. Would have been better if I just printed them at home and brought them with me. Other than that, the Dr. was very nice and seemed knowledgable.

At the tender age of 43, I am still scared of the ear doctor. Dr. Gurian made me feel totally comfortable and at ease. He took extra time to explain everything he was doing, and he even asked if I would feel more comfortable having a nurse in the office with me to keep me company. I will definitely be going back. For any scuba divers out there, Dr. Gurian is a fellow diver!!!

During my visits with Dr. Gurian, he was thorough, willing to discuss things and answer questions, and did not make me feel rushed through the appointments hastily. I have had doctors in the past who seemed more interested in the quantity of patients that they see in a day and not at all the quality of care given to them, but I felt that Dr. Gurian did a wonderful job treating even my minor issues like they were important. Although the follow-up visit proved not to be ultimately necessary, there was no way to know that beforehand and I really appreciate that I was not allowed to slip through the cracks but instead left feeling quite assured that the issue was resolved. He was flexible, too- he worked with my desire to avoid antibiotics, but he also thought ahead and wrote me a just-in-case script so that if things did not resolve themselves, I had a safety net. He also took the time to thoroughly explain many other ways that I can alleviate my symptoms without the stomach-flora-disaster that antibiotics cause. I would quite highly recommend him to anybody requiring an ear, nose, and throat specialist.
