M.L.

I’ve had 2 surgeries performed Dr. Guanche on my right leg. The first one was 3 years ago to repair my torn hip labral. The second one was almost 1 year ago for a torn knee ACL.

I LOVE Dr. Guanche! It is because of him that I can walk.

He never rushed me into surgery. With each injury, he prescribed PT first. Only after PT did not work and the pain was so acute that I could no longer walk, did we turn to surgery.

The man is ground breaking and because of that people confuse his confidence with arrogance. I have seen him no less that 12 visits and he has always been the same professional and caring man.

I recently complained of pain and limited motion in my right shoulder and MRI revealed a deposit of minerals/calcium. Dr. Guanche recommended PT and I’m doing water therapy and to date feeling great!
