Getting to Know Dr. Geurrier

“Surgery is often the last resort when medical management fails to address the problem. This adds a degree of anxiety and fear from the patient. My job is not complete until my patient is at ease and completely comfortable with me, the care team, and treatment recommendations.”

“I believe in a patient-centered approach of care. It is important for me to formulate treatment plans based on outcomes that will be the most beneficial for my patient. The best part of the job to me is fostering a great doctor-patient relationship that goes beyond surgical care. I achieve this with genuine compassion, attentiveness, transparency, and respect.”
