“When I called in late April to make an appointment, at my primary doctors suggestion, they were the only Ear, nose & throat specialists that could get me in quickly. My appointment was set for May 8th when all others I tried wanted me to wait until mid to late June. I was having serious nose bleeds and it needed cauterizing. Dr Michael Guttenplan listened to everything I had to say, then asked questions and took care of the problems along with giving me very specific instructions for future care. He also took the time to answer my questions after I did a hearing test. My expectations are very high when it comes to health care and I would highly recommend Dr Guttenplan, MD” – Rose Lanier
