Some comments from students:
- Dr. Guess' sessions in this course were some of my favorites. I appreciated that she allowed us to "drive" the cases and our diagnostic choices, but that she also took time to review or teach certain concepts we requested to review.
- Best professor I had this semester. Really liked her praise for questions and student-involved activities.
- Dr. Guess is amazing!!! I love her teaching philosophy. I felt I learned the best from this section. She has amazing teaching enthusiasm and really cares that we know the material.
- Very enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about what she loves doing! Dr. Guess was one of my favorite professors and did an excellent job sharing relevant information/concepts to me. I felt that I still remembered all of her information even after she finished teaching, which suggests that she is able to teach us concepts that we can use for 4th-year rotations and our careers.
