"I am privileged to have learned under some of the most talented and caring physicians, but the best teachers are my patients. Therefore, one of the most important skills in medicine is careful listening. Effective treatment results from a collaborative effort between physician, patient and often family members. Consequently, empowering the patient to take responsibility for managing health issues is vitally important."
In 2011, Dr. Gutowski was named Medical Director of the CentraState Medical Center Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.
