I can ta;k to Dr.McGuire very easy and feel comfortable

July 28, 2020 12:58 PM

I forgot to bring a face mask, and they provided a mask to me. The doctor listened to my questions and gave me his opinions.

July 28, 2020 5:15 AM

provider listened to me and explained next steps, which included review of test redults

July 28, 2020 5:15 AM

Had been awhile since last checkup due to COVID, felt all concerns were covered

July 27, 2020 4:42 PM

Dr McGuier did a good job.

July 27, 2020 1:34 PM

Routine physical exam, but the doc did not really do much, listened to my heart. Assistant took BP. That was about it. I expected a more detailed physical but????

July 27, 2020 1:34 PM

Staff was great. In and out in good time, especially with covid issues. Staff was organized but doc was not.

July 27, 2020 1:30 PM

HE SPENT TIME WITH ME GOING OVER MY MENTAL STATE AND THAT MY BLOOD PRESSURE WAS NORMAL BECAUSE A LOT OF THE STRESS IN MY LIFE IS OVER.

July 25, 2020 10:28 AM

Dr. is always pleasant and asks all questions about my health needs and was pleased that I had lost some weight..which is good for my continued good health. He went over all meds I take. And, made an app't to have bloodwork done...as it has been awhile since he checked on it...ala Covid-19...slow down of visits.

July 25, 2020 10:28 AM

Seeing Dr. is always a good experience..especially now as we have to be careful...everyone in this group of Doctors work together to ensure the safety of Dr. Visits..and "canceling my husbands app't to take the really sick people elderly in...was a sensitive thing for them to do. The group is a concerned one.

July 23, 2020 10:01 AM

It was a virtual call. Comfortable and satisfied with visit.

July 23, 2020 7:37 AM

Dr. Kent McGuire has been my doctor for 14 years. I treasure his knowledge and trust his care for me. He gave a new meds last _____ and has help greatly.

July 23, 2020 7:37 AM

He is the best & great doctor -

July 21, 2020 8:20 AM

I was impressed with the way they handled patients during this time of quarantine. It made me feel safe.

July 20, 2020 8:17 PM

I feel relaxed with this provider and I'm not afraid to ask questions about my meds for my health.

July 20, 2020 5:01 PM

I am satisfied with Dr. McGuire. He always answers my questions and he shows concern with my health.

July 13, 2020 4:41 PM

very nice

July 13, 2020 4:41 PM

good

July 6, 2020 4:25 PM

This was my first visit with Dr McGuire. My PMD of 40 years retired recently and my Cardiologist recommended Dr McGuire. He was very kind and thorough and I felt very comfortable with him. He took notes and listened to all my concerns. I look forward to getting to know him better

July 6, 2020 4:25 PM

Good Doc

July 6, 2020 2:33 PM

My husband was a Cardiologist, Internal Medicine physician. When he died I did not believe I would find a Dr. as caring, knowledgeable and accessible to his patients as he was until Dr McGuire.

July 5, 2020 11:08 PM

It was a great visit

July 5, 2020 11:08 PM

June 23, 2020 9:19 AM

Great and positive experience

June 22, 2020 2:12 PM

Excellent provider who I would recommend to anyone

June 22, 2020 2:12 PM

Always a good experience during a office visit

June 20, 2020 1:22 AM

Excellent... as usual!

June 20, 2020 1:22 AM

Dr. Maguire is one of the best primary care physicians that I have had in my lifetime. He takes as much time as necessary to ensure all of my questions have been answered and that we have a plan for managing my healthcare.

June 17, 2020 11:26 AM

The visit was a pre op for a shoulder surgery. The receptionist has never been friendly. Dr. McGuire's staff is competent, friendly, & caring. I think of Dr. McGuire as my doctor & friend.

June 17, 2020 11:26 AM

The weak link are the receptionists. They are very cold & make you feel like a number.

June 4, 2020 9:14 AM

Came right in the middle of the pandemic so it was done on the phone, my choice, rather than video. I was extremely glad it happened as I wanted I needed a COVID-19 plan. I had one but wanted his reassurance. I got that and blood work (annual) was rescheduled for July. Thanks Dr. Mcguire.

May 19, 2020 5:46 PM

I have always found Dr. McGuire a very conservative, attentive doctor who manages to use a little levity in his discussions. Very efficient and his staff seem to be very happy to be there. Everyone friendly and helpful and they laugh at my jokes.

May 18, 2020 3:13 PM

The visit with Dr. Kent McGuire was a TeleHealth Video visit due to Covid-19 stay at home. The wait time to be connected was 20 minutes past appointment time. The visit went well and Dr. McGuire listened and discussed my health and health maintenance with me.

May 11, 2020 7:29 PM

Dr Mcguire is alway there for me

May 11, 2020 3:07 PM

Pleaant visit, he knows my situation, my family. Gives encouragment.hapy with my progress.

May 11, 2020 1:48 PM

This was a phone consultation due to COVID-19 issues. We discussed my newly diagnosed diabetes and treatment and whether or not to increase my insulin dosage. Dr. Maguire listened very carefully to my concerns/questions before answering. He also took the time to ask about my chronically ill child and whether any of his prescriptions needed refilled.

May 11, 2020 1:48 PM

Dr. Maguire is very soft-spoken and kind. He listens to suggestions and explains why his feelings about treatment may differ from mine. He shows genuine care about my chronically ill child and never hesitates to ask how he is doing.

May 7, 2020 10:35 AM

Great experience.

May 7, 2020 10:35 AM

I'm so glad to have Doctor McGuire!!!

March 7, 2020 6:46 AM

Good experience

March 2, 2020 4:36 PM

Dr Kent McGuire took over my healthcare needs after my previous Doctor retired. I feel like my continuous care has been excellent.

March 1, 2020 11:06 AM

My appt. was for 4pm and I did not end up seeing the doctor until 5:30 and then was referred to get an x-ray and they were closing at 6.

March 1, 2020 11:06 AM

This is not the first time that I had to wait long periords of time for an appointment. I have had early morning, first thing 8am for blood draw and not taken back until 8:30. This is unacceptible, as the reason I picked the first one in the morning, is so that I would get to work on time. I was told that the reason for one of the delays is that there was another person that was helping out, as the normal person that does blood draws for Dr. McGuire was not in. Why do each of the doctors have their own blood draw nurses? I am very disappointed in the time it takes to get service. Doctor's will charge you a non cancellation fee, well my time is worth something too! Isn't this why we make appointments in the first place! Stop double booking, if that is what is causing this.

February 26, 2020 7:35 AM

Dr. McGuire has always been up front and honest with me regarding what steps I need to take to improve my health. I feel confident and comfortable with Dr. McGuire.

February 26, 2020 7:35 AM

It is next to impossible to get a short notice appointment with Dr. McGuire - I have used CVS Immediate Care at least 4 times over the past year. WHY?? It was never that way when he had his own practice. Are you over scheduling patients?

February 20, 2020 6:24 PM

`i like this doctor very much.

February 17, 2020 4:29 PM

everything was good.

February 11, 2020 8:11 PM

February 1, 2020 3:15 PM

Very good experience.

February 1, 2020 11:35 AM

I had a good experience with DR McGuire. He answers all of my questions. He is a good listener.

February 1, 2020 11:35 AM

All of my experiences with DR McGuire are good.

January 27, 2020 10:42 PM
