I have suffered for 5 years with pelvic organ prolapse and only recently began having severe pain. After years of dealing with this issue, it became apparent to my GYN and myself that surgery was in my best interest. She recommended Dr. Guerette (who is not affiliated with her practice). Dr. Guerette and his entire staff have always treated me professionally with compassion. Dr. Guerette examined me and listened to my concerns, reassured of me of my fears with minimally invasive options and the ability to live a quality life. My pre-surgery experience with him was wonderful including an appointment with Rose and the office staff was truly efficient and organized when coordinating the surgery and insurance information and details. When I arrived at Johnston Willis Hospital the morning of the surgery, I was only made to feel even more confident in my choice of surgeons as every nurse that I came in contact with pre/post surgery said that Dr. Guerette was the best. Now almost six months after surgery, I am through the main part of my healing process and I can FINALLY LIVE AGAIN. For me, Dr. Guerette's personality and ability to cut through the stress and tension of this medical predicament that I, at age 59, have found myself in were a bonus. What I looked for in a surgeon, and got with Dr. Guerette, was a doctor to fix my pelvic issues so that I can get on with the business of living the rest of my life.
If you have or need vaginal prolapse or incontinence surgery, please see Dr. Guerette. I've struggled with these issues for so long going from Doctor to Doctor unsure who I could trust and not only did I find the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever encountered, but a highly skilled artist. A true MASTER SURGEON and he did for me what others said could never be done and corrected the mistakes made by previous surgeons. Only a very small handful of doctors can do vaginal reconstructive surgery the RIGHT WAY and he's it. His office is super friendly and really puts the care back into PATIENT CARE which is hard to find these days. In ALL respects, I am honored to have been his patient and forever grateful to him for taking away my pain and disability and giving me my life back. If you're looking for a Doctor that has a gift in vaginal surgery, will answer questions, explain in terms you will understand, and has more empathy for his patients than most then please consider what I said and call his office.
