"I think the success of medical treatment is based on the good communication between the physician, the patient and his family, in order to determine the cause of the discomfort and choose the treatment that will bring greater benefit."

Rheumatic diseases can significantly affect the quality of life of those who suffer them, and are often not diagnosed promptly. The most satisfying thing for me is when one of my patients recover the ability to perform his/her activities and manages to relieve their pain and suffering.

"Excelente, muy simpática, amable y gentil...trata con mucha consideración y toma su tiempo para orientar."
"She was exactly what I needed. Excellent communication skills. I was able to communicate with her easily in English and Spanish. She was open and up-to-date on my diagnosis. I had been to doctors six times since March, including another specialist, and none would help me, but she recognized immediately the issue. It was a diagnosis I had predicted, but no other doctor had listened. Thank you for exceptional care. Rheumatologists are essential in this day and age, and I was very happy to find an English-speaking, female one."

"La Dra Guardia es una excelente médico, se preocupa por obtener toda la información necesaria para el diagnóstico y realiza un examen físico muy meticuloso. Entre que se realizó la consulta, se realizaron exámenes y se llegó claramente a un diagnóstico fueron unas cuantas horas. Estoy sumamente satisfecha con el servicio y definitivamente recomendaría a la doctora. Es un gusto ser atendido por esta clase de profesional."
