“I initially went to Dr Guanche based on a referral from a friend. I had already seen two other doctors for a review and recommendations as to what could be done to alleviate the pain in my shoulder. Although I am sure that both doctors are competent physicians, I never felt reassured that they would give me the outcome I was looking for. Upon arrival at Dr. Guanche's office there seemed to be an air of competence that led me to relax almost immediately. When I got to meet Dr. Guanche I was surprised by how relaxed he was and how he explained everything in detail to me. He didn't seem to be in a hurry to go on to the next patient, but instead, he spent quite a bit of time with me answering the questions I had. At the end of our first meeting he put me in contact with his staff to schedule my procedure. I have never had an experience with a doctor and his support staff that was as professional as Dr Guanche. I will recommend him to anyone that needs the services he provides.”

“Dr. Guanche was knowledgeable and knew exactly what my issue was within 5 minutes of being in the room. I am now one week post-op from surgery and I feel great already. I would recommend him to anyone with hip issues because I don't think I have ever had as much trust in a provider as I do Dr. Guanche. Awesome experience from my first visit all the way until now.”

“I shopped several providers for my shoulder replacement. Though all were competent, I was impressed with Dr. Guanche from the first moment. Also I heard from others about his reputation and skills. Though he is busy with other patients, he took time to explain the procedure and the care I would require. I would recommend him highly. Who knows, he may get to do my other shoulder. We are both watching its development.”

“I have extreme confidence in the qualifications of Dr. Guanche. He had performed a prior surgery on my right hip, and I am doing so much better since that time. So, when I started having issues with my left hip, I knew he was the one who could help me. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family.”

“I have been fortunate enough to have seen Dr Guanche now for 2 of the 3 surgeries needed thus far; left hip labral repair and left shoulder labral and clean up repair. He has proven to be an exceptional surgeon, professional in all aspects and I am so happy my orthopedist recommended him. The Orthopedic Institute itself has also been professional, and an exceptional experience. Any issues experienced have been rectified immediately, and all needs have been met in a timely manner. I WILL recommend others to this facility.”

“Dr Guanche is an amazing Dr. Very kind, caring, with a GREAT bedside manor!! I live in Anchorage AK. I went to see him after trying 3 other Dr's who attempted to repair my right shoulder, and for some apparent reason my shoulder always came out with the same result, I could not lift it above my head. I Went into see Dr Guanche, and within 2 months I was able to shake people hands and lift my arm above my head, which It had been 18 years since I was able to perform that task.. Than I went back to him after I started experiencing pain in my left arm. In AK the MRI was showing a torn Labrium. I went down to get a second opinion with Dr Guanche. He said he did not see a torn labruim, but he could go in, clean up my shoulder, make sure there were no tears, and all came out well!!! I'm still in PT, but each day I continue to improve. Thank You Dr Guanche!”
