Dr.McGuire is an amazing physician. he called me at home to explain the illness of my child. He is Awesome!
We recommend Dr. Maguire to everyone we know. He is amazing with our son and we can't imagine going to anyone else.
Dr. Magurie, is one of the most amazing doctors we have seen. I have a 7 year old special needs daughter. He explained everything so well, taking extra time as we had a later appointment. He was very caring doctor going above and beyond.
I really appreciated the nursing staff helping me with how to get documentation for medical assistance to prove a disability. Also, the provider used a picture in the room to demonstrate what was going on with my daughters ear.
Dr. McGuire and the PA went to great lengths to answer question, explain in fine detail, and problem solve issues that seemed to be a novel experience, however inconsequential to the actual health of my daughter. They were very interested, engaged, and helpful. It was a very encouraging experience
Dr Mcguire is very knowledgeable and kind. listens and explains medical condition very well.
Dr. McGuire is fantastic! he is extremely knowledgeable and knew right away what was wrong with our child. He thoroughly explained the issues and used tons of details and MADE SURE we understood what was going on. He listened to us thoroughly and answered ALL of our questions. you can tell how intelligent he is right away. He definitely knows what he is doing and I feel VERY secure bringing my daughter to him. I am so glad we got the opportunity to meet with this doctor and i will feel less nervous for our follow up.
I wouldn't take her to anyone else besides Dr Maguire unless it was a dire emergency.
first time here and I will definitely be back! it was an hour out of our way, but staff and Dr. were amazing!
very professional and extremely nice and relatable. answered all of my questions and explained the tongue clipping procedure and care afterwards in easy to understand language.
Dr. Maguire is top notch. We have worked with many, many doctors at Children's over the past 3 years both in patient and out. We work with a variety of specialists and I have to say that he is the absolute best. He really takes times and spends with us and allows us to be involved and understand the plan of care for our son. He is very approachable and easy to talk to. He is relatable because he himself is a father and truly gets how to care for our son. I wish all of the specialists we work with were as kind as he is. We really appreciate him and how he cares for our son.
explained everything in a way that was very easy to understand
We really like Dr. Maguire, and tubes have greatly reduced my daughter's ear infections.
The office staff was friendly, efficient and very professional.
Dr. McQuire is exceptional at providing medical care for my son. he is attentive, patient, caring, listens to parent input and explains information in a manner which most adults will understand. Dr. McQuire's conservative approach to addressing my son's obstructive sleep apnea is comforting because I believe he's focused on long-term solutions and consideration for the scope of my son's medical needs/history. ease of scheduling an appointment is no easy task...I assume given the mass patients Dr. McQuire serves.
knowledgeable, took time to answer questions, put my child first
excellent physician, felt very confident in his care
I could not possibly be more pleased with our experience with Dr. McGuire and his team. they were kind, professional, and all had great bedside manner.
Dr. Maquire listened to our concerns and provided our son with comforting care in a scary situation. Our sons surgery turned out to be more complicated than what was originally planned and Dr. Magiure made sure we knew exactly what was going on at every stage of the surgery and added calm to a stressful situation. Our son is now happy and healthy and we would definitely recommend Dr. Maguire to anyone.
Dr. Maguire is wonderful!
Doctor is fantastic and easy to work with!
Dr Maguire has is and always has been an excellent physician/surgeon for my son. He is a caring individual and always provides the best care! He gave us hope for getting my son's tracheostomy removed when we thought it may never come out. we are lucky to have him!!
We have been seeing Dr. Maguire for over 7 years with all three of my children. He is my favorite physician and my kids like going to see him. He always remembers who we are and is genuinely interested in how our family is doing.
We have seen Dr Maguire on many occasions over the last 3 yrs. and everytime he takes the time to fully explain answers to our questions and always has listen to our concerns.Would highly recommend him to family and friends for their child's ENT needs.
Thank you for all your help!
Dr. McGuire was fantastic!!!! He took his time and really showed he cared about my daughter and her health. We had an excellent experience.
I cannot begin to thank Dr. Maguire for the care he has provided for both of my daughters. This appointment was initially for my younger daughter and during our conversation I mentioned to him that I was concerned about my older daughter's hearing. He proceeded to have his office staff register my older daughter and examined her immediately. He expressed that his only concern was to take the best possible care of them and did not want me to wait for an appointment. We were treated with respect and kindness from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. I will forever be grateful for Dr. Maguire. Thank you!
amazing ENT, was highly recommended from our pediatrician and other parents we know.
over 60 minutes of wait time.
Overall wonderful experience. Very satisfied.
Dr Maguire did an amazing job w emergency surgery. We were in great hands!! We are very thankful of the outcome!
We have a great experience when coming to see Dr Maguire. We had a hearing test and the audiologist was quite remarkable, efficient and did her job well.
FANTASTIC GENTLE PERSON WITH MY DAUGHTER! VERY COMPASSIONATE TOWARD CHILDREN!
Dr. Maguire is a knowledgeable, skilled, and compassionate doctor who listens to patient concerns without judgement and gives understandable information. I can tell that he truly cares about patients and their families. He is truly a remarkable doctor and my husband and I are so grateful for his expertise in helping our son. Thank you!
My son needs to have his tonsils out and my only complaint about my interaction with the Dr. is that I was told the 'negatives' almost right off the bat to having the surgery and I felt i was told in what i felt was an insensitive way. But by the end of the appointment it seemed obvious that i was overly concerned and we talked about it again. Other then that our appointment was productive and informative.
very pleased with the care we received from Dr. McGuire. would recommend him to anyone!
Raymond Mcguire is an excellent dr I have referred him to 3 friends that are now patients of his.
I am extremely happy with my provider.
the wait time was long, but Dr. Maguire is excellent and we would wait again and again if we had too
Dr. Maguire goes above and beyond every time our daughter sees him. I highly recommend him to everyone who has children cared for by and ENT or is looking for one for the first time. He is truly a remarkable doctor. It is obvious that he has a passion for his work and desires to see the best outcome possible for his patients.
We "LOVE" Dr. Maguire !! We won't see any other ENT...I just wish the wait times to see him would be shorter.
We've always had great experiences with this care provider and the car he and the staff have provided for our child.
very rushed with little discussion
Everything was good
we love doc mcguire. the only problem is that it is very hard to get an appointment with him. I had to call the nurse and have her make room for us that way we could get a pre op appointment
the staff, nurses, and Dr. Maguire are all amazing! highly recommend this provider
my whole time i was there everyone was really nice and caring toward me and my daughter i had no bad expierence
I was even running late and everyone from the front desk through the end of treatment was incredibly helpful, nice and courteous. Great experience.
Dr. McGuire was extremely friendly and took time to explain the condition and answer any questions.
Dr Maguire was very thoughtful and thorough with explaining everything and trying to make my child feel at ease with needed to be done to make her feel better.
Dr. Maguire was very nice to my daughter and kept her calm when administering a treatment.
Dr. Maguire was very patient and knowledgeable about my child's medical history. He was able to answer all questions adequately and addressed every issue and/concern. Just a great physician!
we were seen almost immediately when we arrived before our son's appointment time. staff and doctor were great as they've always been during each visit.
Truly pleased with our experiences with Dr Maguire and staff. Always worth a long trip, feel as though my child is in the best care possible for her situation.
Dr Maguire does an excellent job making sure we understand what he is telling us. He is kind and our child felt extremely comfortable coming to his appointments. We have had nothing but positive experiences with Dr Maguire and everyone working in the office.
Mr Maguire is excellent. I took my son to see an ENT because of our concern of a nose bleed. He found the issue and he noticed that my son spoke with a "nasal" sound and he recommended a specialist for that. I am extremely happy with the care he gave my son. He went above and beyond I believe. I have been to many doctors around the country and whenever I have a concern with my child's health they only have focused on the problem we go in for. I didn't even ask about the speech he has and not only was his assistant aware of it he was too.
The waiting time for the Doctor to come in was awful. About 35 min after appointment time
we had a great appointment. beyond pleased with our doc. thanks !!!
very thorough. thank you!
The PA (can't remember her name) and Dr. McGuire were both great. Our son said after the appointment, "Mom, I was really scared, but that doctor was way nicer than I thought he would be."
Dr Maguire is a compassionate and caring person. listened to our concerns and didn't show any signs of hurried behavior.
One of my other children saw Dr. McGuire, so I knew that he was skilled and had an excellent bedside manner. I asked for him in particular.
over all very happy with our experience at the ent in wexford
Dr. Maguire put my son at total ease. To the point where he was fine having his adenoids scoped and was even laughing! It was a great experience out of something that could have been scary!
I think in person everyone is great. it is difficult to get a response and/ or to schedule. dr macguire acknowledged that and gave me some other options. I really appreciated that !
Dr. Maguire was excellent with my daughter. He seemed very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. I was very pleased with our visit. My only concern was that it took over two and a half months to get an appointment with any of the ENT's at Children's North. I just wish it could have been sooner, since my daughter needed tubes in her ears. That being said, I understand the high demand for these appointments.
The doctors and nurses were all amazing!! No complaints!
dr is extremely friendly and takes time to listen, highly recommend
Dr. McGuire is the best and well worth the wait to have your child be seen by.
the staff was very helpful
We love Dr. McGuire! He is so friendly and good at what he does. I recommend him to anyone.
I had an amazing experience at my visit. Dr. MAGUIRE was amazing. He is completely thorough and very attentive to how I was feeling about everything. As a new mom I am very pleased with how Dr. MAGUIRE explained everything and made sure I was 100% ok with everything he was going to do and the after care of my son.
Dr. Maguire has been very concerned with my child's care. He has been very understanding and listened to my concerns. My daughter had some bloodwork in Feb. that I had many questions about. Dr. Maguire answered what he could for me and consulted with Dr. Nowalk for those he could not answer. He was honest about not knowing some of the answers and promptly sent an email to Dr. Nowalk with my concerns while we were talking. As a result Dr. Nowalk's office called me the next day and set up an appointment for this week. Afterward Dr. Maguire examined my daughter and answered questions that were of his expertise.
I absolutely love the staff at the Children's North ENT office. They have always made each and every experience with my child a positive one. They speak to her and allow her to participate in her own health, which I believe is an important learning opportunity as she grows. They listen attentively to my concerns and have taken fantastic care of my child's specific heath needs. I recommend this facility to everyone needing ENT care for their child.
long wait time to be seen appointment was at 300pm and was not seen until 400pm. but the staff explained that they had a patient with an emergency which was very respectful. I appreciated their explanation greatly!
had to wait 2 hours before seeing Doctor
we only see Dr. Maguire- he's the best fit for our daughter. (she adores him too)
Dr Maguire dismissed my concerns saying that choking was normal for all children and that every parent has to perform the heimlich maneuver at least once. That is absolutely not true as I know many people who have never done that to anyone, including their children, and whose children have not had any choking issues. I am very grateful that my daughter has no oral structural issues but would have appreciated more kindness and consideration from an ENT child specialist. I could not possibly recommend him and would not go back to him with any future issues. He also bragged about being a surgeon. Perhaps if your child needs surgery he would have acted differently in the office. He did give us a follow up pamphlet for another office in the hospital if needed. When I asked what to do if my child continues to choke his response was "I don't know why you are asking me that." As you can understand, visiting a specialist is a bit scary when it concerns your child. He just wasn't clear or straightforward. After his rude comment I realized he was saying that I should go to the other office if concerned. I would also like to add that we visited an ENT at the recommendation of my child's pediatrician, I did not seek one out on my own. I initially called the Wexford location and was told that I needed to be seen at Children's Hospital. It was my own bad luck that I was scheduled with Dr. Maguire.
an hour wait in the waiting room is a bit excessive. glad the care that is provided makes up for the horrible wait times
Dr. Maguire is an excellent provider and would recommend him to anyone. The wait time this visit was more than usual, but not too excessive.
Dr. McQuire is an exceptional doctor. He took the time to listen to our concern and guided us towards a direction of care for our son. He read the chart and came in the room prepared to talk about his patient. he is truly a caring doctor!
We love Dr. Maguire! He is thorough and caring w/ great bedside manner!
Great service and care.
The child care provider took his time and answered all of my questions. I didn't feel like he was trying to rush out of the room to the next patient.
this was one of the best and thorough doctor appointments I've ever been to.
Excellent doctor, easy to talk to.
Dr. Maguire is the best around and we highly recommend him to anyone in need of a pediatric ENT! just love this office and provider
Dr. Maguire is the best ENT around. Both of my kids see him and I highly recommend him to others. we just love him!
Dr McGuire is an amazing Doctor all 3 of my girls have had surgery done by him and he has been exceptional with them.
Dr. Maguire was wonderful with our daugther, and we look forward to working with him.
I could not have been more pleased with our visit to dr maguire's . Everyone was kind to my little girl from the receptionist to the nurse to dr maguire himself. All of my questions were answered and plans moving forward clearly explained. Thank you!
He is so good with my child and I do not mind driving the 2 hours for the appointment.
We could not be any happier with Dr. Maguire. He is professional, compassionate, and truly cares for his patients.
Dr McGuire went above and beyond to accommodate my sons hearing needs!
The provider was excellent in understanding our daughters continued issues with sinus sickness and constant congestion. Nurse & doctor both looked into her ears and confirmed her tubes were clogged. While dealing with a local ENT (non-pediatric) and pediatrician they both said her tubes were functioning. Extremely happy with our daughters diagnosis and evaluation of her.
I was very impressed with the care and attention my son got at his last visit and previous visits.
Dr. maguire is the Best!
the staff was very engaging with my son and helped to ease his stress level, what a relief for me
