Ratings for Dr. Richard B. Guttler
Dr Guttler saved my life 36 years ago when he diagnosed a massive goiter that was pressing on my airway. He is more knowledgeable about thyroid disease and cutting edge thyroid treatments and procedures than any other Endocrinologist I have met, and I have met many over the last 36 years. I continue to travel from Las Vegas to Santa Monica, CA for my treatment and will continue to do so until he chooses to no longer practice.
I am absolutely shocked by some of the reviews I read here. I wonder if these people saw the same endocrinologist as I did because the Dr. Richard Guttler I saw is nothing less than exceptional. It was a misdiagnosis in Scottsdale, Arizona that lead me to drive 8 hours to be seen by someone who is passionate about what they do. It was refreshing to find an endocrinologist that is dedicated to excellence
My mom was treated horribly by the unprofessional unknowledgeable staff. I think his wife is the office manager who is clearly uneducated and has zero managerial skills. This office is money hungry and runs on greed. If you have a medical concern I URGE you to seek professional help. This 'DOCTOR' is a clown who is RUDE and only wants you money.
The doctor did not take my insurance, I had to pay in cash. He ran all sorts of costly tests. The meds he prescribed for me left me feeling worse and he didn't believe me, his attitude was something else, however lab tests confirmed this to be true. It became obvious that I needed to seek other help. Because he wouldn't take my insurance, I ended up with a balance that I couldn't clear up quick enough for him, so he sued me. An awful experience.
Won't patronize this physician or have any further contact. He has a very specific view on thyroid disease, and follows that to the letter, and does not seem to be particularly interested in anything that might contradict or challenge his own very strong opinion on things. His services are not, in my opinion, worth what he charges.
He is an able and highly qualified doctor. He has a level of informed integrity that sometimes seems lacking in thyroid medicine these days. It's obvious he's not into 'woo' and has taken a beating for publicly speaking out against it when it comes to thyroid disease. It actually would be nice if more endocrinologists spoke out in the same manner.
