About Paulo Guillinta, MD

My principal role as a treating physician is to provide the patient with accurate information about their diagnosis and treatment options. Once the patient is well-informed, we can work together to accomplish a desired goal. I enjoy helping others feel well so that they can live healthy, productive lives with great quality. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and tireless two boys. I love music, traveling to exotic destinations and playing soccer.

Dr. Guillinta first treated me when I developed a cardiac issue in 2011. I was lucky my PCP referred me to Dr. G. My PCP told me he was the best -- and he is. I am testament to that as his patient. Years later, my mom started seeing Dr. G. (my mom is a retired physician)(he stabilized her as well). And a few years ago I brought my developmentally disabled brother, who developed extensive cardiac issues, to Dr. G. Dr. Guillinta is a HUMAN BEING, A HELL OF A DOCTOR and NOW HE IS OUR FRIEND. He is quiet and to the point. Never misses a thing when it comes to his patients. And DAMN GOOD AT HIS WORK -- he was born to be a cardiologist. And it makes sense, because he has a big heart for his work and his patients. I am also a Bioethics/Neuroethics Healthcare attorney and the way that Dr. G treats my brother with respect, dignity, empathy and endless problem solving for the many cardiac and other medical issues that my brother faces is beyond the title of Medical Doctor. It is one thing to be able to treat those who do not have cognitive delays/issues. It is entirely an artform and innate sense of intelligence and soul to treat the developmentally disabled who are also blind and almost deaf. My brother adores Dr. G because he feels the humanity from Dr. G. We are blessed.
