Our providers

Meet the medical providers, physicians, and our family nurse practitioner, who make up the team responsible for your health care. In addition, we rely on nurses, medical assistants, laboratory and X-ray technologists, medical records specialists, and many clerical staff to keep the office working for you.

Each of our physicians is certified by the American Board of Family Practice and supported by a staff of capable, experienced, and friendly healthcare professionals. Our certified Family Nurse Practioner (FNP) works closely with us to provide the most timely and competent care possible. The FNP supports your treatment plan by providing education and follow-up consultations. We are dedicated to providing our patients with personalized and cost-effective care. Our services begin at birth and continue throughout your lifetime. We value long-term relationships with our patients built on trust and open communication. We are primary care physicians for our patients and their families, helping to coordinate their medical care through other specialties or hospital services when needed.

I'm glad you asked about the staff, because I was planning to compliment them before you asked. Dr. Guthmann has been my PC physician for at least 25 years, and I have stayed with him because he is such a fine doctor. His medical knowledge combined with his great communication skills make him the ideal care provider. But the staff at Novant Waxhaw is superb also. Erin, my nurse, remembers my previous quirks and concerns and is always on top of things. The lobby check-in staff are quick, friendly, and efficient. The desk folks at Dr. Guthmann's office keep up with my appointment and are right there with the paperwork and getting future appointments scheduled efficiently. Even the lab personnel are great; I hate needles and always joke with the phlebotomist about my drama, but they always make the blood-drawing procedure painless and I can say I've never had a bad experience with the Novant lab. So yes, EVERYBODY does a great job!

I highly recommend Dr Howard Guthmann, he is an excellent doctor. His nurses Erin and Tanya are superb as well.I have been seeing Dr Guthmann now for 20+ years, I would not trust my health to anyone else. He listens and thoroughly explains medical terms and conditions, I never feel rushed. He makes me feel like he genuinely cares about my well being.
