The waits are unbelievable! I go every 6 weeks for a 5 minute appointment but have to suffer a 1 1/2 hour wait in chairs that are horrible. Has the compassion of Donald Trump.

Be careful about being asked to participate in one of their 'studies' offered. This office receives much of its' income from being paid very highly to test new drugs that have not been proven effective or whose side effects have not yet been determined. You get to be the guinea pig and suffer the consequences without any means to be compensated since you sign a consent form to accept the risks. All the risk is yours and they get all the benefit - money, and their name published in all the medical journals. Be wary! They are interested most in patients who meet criteria for study. If not you get a couple of minutes, some basic advice and the privilege of waiting a year for it. No different from any other dermatologist or your family doctor for that matter. And the loud staff member who talks over everybody? Doctor's daughter, no medical training whatsoever.

While I like and respect Dr. Guenther, you can count on at least an hour wait time before you get to your appointment. And the waiting room furniture is very uncomfortable.

I have been lots and seen her argue and berate her staff in front of patients!!!!!!!! So unprofessional!!!!!!! There is one staff member that is really loud and talks over the person trying to booke for no reason. Again, not professional! !! The rest of the staff is nice and is friendly. Dr gunther always talks to me about her life while i am in with her.....all i want is my prescription....not hear about her crafts or surgery or whatever. No wonder she is always behind when i see her if she is like that with everyone

Reception was good, the wait to see the doctor was unacceptable - 1.5 hours and then 10 minutes of her time! We were expecting her to explain about what we went in for and to be able to discuss but instead she took a look and handed out a prescription - same as any other doctor - very disappointed. We didn't go in for her to confirm the diagnosis; we were looking for treatment that would work!

Staff is very helpful and does their best i think under what is probably stressfull environment. I have been often and she has been standing talking to staff and has to be reminded to see patients! I had a 7:30 am appointment and waited until 830 to be seen once. Staff is friendly but that's all that's good at this office

I waited a year to see Dr. Guenther for my acne. I spent only 5-10 minutes in her office, after which she immediately prescribed me an oral and topical antibiotic without even telling me about possible longterm damage, or adverse effects of stopping them. My acne was so mild that I'm sure an oral medication was unnecessary, but being naive and trusting as I was, I listened to the doctor. During followup appointments she told me to continue taking the antibiotic and further prescribed me a strong retinoid. I took the antibiotic for 7 months but had to stop because of gastric issues. As soon as I stopped them, my acne transcended into a terrible, inflammatory pustular outbreak, and my skin looked like a grimy oil spill. My skin has never been the same since I took antibiotics, and to this day I still deal with this new kind of acne, have a host of food sensitivities, and IBS. When I went back to see Dr. Guenther, she insisted it was my own fault for stopping the medication. The worst thing I've ever done for my skin and body is taking the medication Dr. Guenther prescribed me.

Dr Guenther is a knowledgable caring doctor. She does not suffer fools well, but if you step up and ask what you need to know she will bend over backwards to accommodate . I don't usually believe in this type of anonymous rating because I don't think its fair. But really...there is a comment from a 1988 visit still talked about in 2013...people grow...even if they are doctors.

In 1988 my six year old son developed a sebaceous cyst in the Nasolabial fold. We were referred to Dr. Guenther by our Family Practioner. All these years later I have never forgotten what a cold, uncaring doctor she was. We visited her clinic regularly for injections to reduce the size of the cyst, she then opted to remove it. I asked if there would be much scarring, and if a referral to a Plastic Surgeon was the next step. She laughed at me and said she would do the procedure. My son has been left with a significal scar all these years. She commented since he was a boy, that any minor scaring wouldn't matter. She treated me as if I was an idiot. She was not kind, gentle, nor compassionate to my son who was extremely polite and well behaved in her exam room, but naturally leaned away as he was being injected, and she even yelled at him to "hold still" during the surgery. He was barely moving, and was just a little boy. I had to ask to be allowed to hold his hand.
