Ratings for Dr. Surb S. Guram
He and his associates are terrible. They don't give you what you need, so the patient needs are not met. They are too concerned about the FDA Regulations. On prior visits they were more accommodating , giving what you need. Their excuse these days are that they don't treat pain. Dr. GURAM and Dr. FULLER really suck! Ignore this practice!!!
I was referred to Dr. Surb Guram by a friend who sees him, I didn't have an internist, so I asked around and his name came up several times. From the first time that I met him I knew that he was going to be thorough. I had many tests and after all of them he and I sat down and he explained what I needed to do to get my health back in order. The staff is professional, punctual, and helpful. When your appointment time comes, you are called and taken care of. There is no sitting around wasting time. I am very impressed with Dr. Guram and everyone who works in the office. I must admit he runs a well oiled machine and has no time for foolishness. I would recommend Dr. Guram to any of my friends. Very thorough.
What originally seemed to be a caring and thorough approach to my overall health.....turned out to be a (possibly) once devoted physician who's actually a shrewd businessman, promoting a variety of procedures that simply add to his immense wealth. This is a dog and pony show if I've ever seen one. From one's entry into his pricey, art filled three-storied setup, replete with the most modern and up to date labs and clinics, profit alone becomes apparent as the purpose of his little empire. He is personally a capable physician, but his "associates" are second rate and fundamentally incompetent. I've found better since.
I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Everytime I see him, he refers me to have so many different tests to be ran. All of these tests require a co-pay. Then, you have to make yet ANOTHER appointment (another co-pay) to get the test results back. He also doesnt refill any medication without having to come in for an appointment. I now have a new doctor who actually takes the time to listen to my concerns and who will also refill my medication over the phone. That is what good patient care is all about.
The staff at SCIM is has always been helpfull & personable. Dr. Guram seems to genuinely care about his patients. The only shortcoming of the entire facility is the fact that they are rarely on schedule -- not uncommon for doctors, & they are not nearly as bad as some I've encountered.
Dr. Guram was wonderful. After suffering with medical weight gain that my other physicans said were "impossible" I decided to seek help with Dr. Guram. Not only did he believe me but was very helpful in helping me find ways to combat it. I would recommend Dr. Guram to all of my friends and family.
I have been a patient of Dr. Guram's since 1999 and have always found him to be professional and knowledgeable. His kindness and caring is shown through his mannerisms and his compassion is shown with his heart. Dr. Guram is definitely my Doctor of Choice!
Reffered me to several labs and clinics (sleep, heart imageing, hemorroid, etc) that had nothing to do with my original ailment. It turns out he owns these labs and clinics. I found this to be very shady and greedy. Not sure if he is looking out for my best interest or his.
