Patient Stories

“I choose Saline Medical Specialties for my medical care because of the excellent care and treatment I receive. The providers take their time during my visits, I never feel rushed. They listen to my concerns and take them seriously. Before I leave, they always make sure I don’t need anything else. Dr. Gutierrez personally called me while I was hospitalized, I have never had a Doctor in the past do this for me. He also gave me his personal cell phone number and I know I can call him anytime for my medical needs. All the staff make me feel welcome when I come to the clinic. No matter how busy they are, they are always smiling, it feels like I am at my second home.”

“My husband survived necrotizing pancreatitis and we needed a General Practitioner to follow his case after he came home from being hospitalized for over 10 months. We chose Dr. Gutierrez for Mark’s care after returning home in July of 2017. He has followed Mark closely and carefully followed blood work-up and wounds that needed to heal. We trusted his care and his willingness to be at Mark’s beck and call when needed. Mark and I trust Dr. Gutierrez’s knowledge and straightforward nature when trying to find answers for any problem that may arise with Mark’s health. We recommend Dr. G to our friends and family. Saline Medical Specialties has a small town feeling with great and outstanding care.”

“Krystal Jackson takes time and listens to our concerns and celebrates our achievements and milestones of Jaxon and Rylyn (1-year-old twins). She allows you time for full understanding of knowledge and Her honesty, trust, care, and love she show us is exceptional. A person doesn’t find that anywhere. We are beyond lucky to have her our provider!”

“Krystal Jackson cares for her patients until they are back to full health. She stands by her care and believes in her patient’s wellness. There is not one doctor who could get my husband to follow orders, go to the emergency room, or make him realize his health was decreasing rapidly. Anything Krystal said he would do immediately and know it was serious. She stood by him and cared for him until he passed away in 2017. She continues to treat and care for myself with the utmost respect and love. “
