Kelly is a great provider. In future, I will see her again and refer her to others.

January 01, 2017

An excellent diagnostician

December 08, 2016

she is not warm and seems not to have any passion about her work.

November 17, 2016

November 10, 2016

The care provider was clear and concise.

November 07, 2016

very good experiencie i

October 25, 2016

PA was pleasant and explained what she was going to do each step of the way. Wasn't sure about cause of illness but the solution to the issue did help.

October 17, 2016

My first time seeing this provider. I was very impressed that she had looked over my records before coming into the exam. She had some concerns about my medical history which we discussed. She also picked up on a change in my hearing test. Based on this change and her exam she felt like I should follow up with Dr. Gurgel.

September 30, 2016

I originally tried to get an appointment with Dr Orlandi, as has been my care provider pre and post surgery. I was suggested use his PA by the scheduling staff to be seen sooner, I'm very dissapointed and next time will wait to see the Dr.

September 30, 2016

She was really nice but she seemed a bit distracted

September 21, 2016

I was at such a loss before I came to this appointment. I still don't have answers but Kelly skied so much concern and ordered additional testing as well as reviewing findings and giving me a call back, that it gave me peace that she was doing all she could to help me. she also referred me to others to try and figure this out ... I'm glad she was able to give me some direction. I also feel a bit more aware of my post condition and my hearing health

September 10, 2016

she was jumping at everything she could think of

September 08, 2016

Kelly was excellent!

September 07, 2016

She was fantastic!

May 15, 2016

kelley was very thorough. I asked a lot of questions and she explained everything about my condition and options

May 13, 2016

I appreciated the way Kelly listened and let me explain my concern/problem. She did a great job explaining what she was doing and what I could expect next. The appointment move very efficiently and I received information in a timely manner.

April 23, 2016

I mentioned some dizziness an balance issues and I don't think I really got an answer

April 17, 2016

Kelly Trythall was absolutely wonderful. She was incredibly gentle, making sure that I had has little pain as possible during removal of nasal packing. She even gently cleaned me up after to make sure I was presentable before leaving the office! I thought she was so compassionate and kind.

April 16, 2016


April 05, 2016

Excellent service and provider showed concern for issue I was having and asked me to let her know outcome. I truly appreciated that.

March 26, 2016

Outstanding job!

March 25, 2016

She was terrific abt explaining my condition and the treatment she recommended.

March 23, 2016

Kelly was terrific--careful, competent, thorough, and dedicated ...she is a credit to the U

March 18, 2016

Wow! She was so good!! Very smart, professional, and caring. I don't know what she gets paid but she deserve a huge raise!!

March 17, 2016

I came in complaining about a horrible barking cough. She scoped my sinuses, and said they were clear. Said there was nothing else she could do. Listen to my lungs? Perform a culture to see what this is? At this point I had been sick for 8 days! I was told they don't listen to lungs at an ENT or send out for cultures. I was told to walk down the hall to the Urgent Care for those?!? I was shocked, to put it mildly. I've had bronchial infections my entire life. Prior to moving to Utah, I leaned heavily on my amazing ENTs for treatment and care. This was quite a shock. Beyond the lack of willingness/ability to assist, there was also a general lack of bedside manner. No interest to know me, my medical history or previous experiences. Very disappointed. And very unlike any other experience I've had at the U.

March 13, 2016

She was great. very thorough and did not make me feel like my problems were in my head

February 24, 2016

An offer for me to look in my ears before and after cleaning would have been appreciated.

February 23, 2016

Very knowledgeable but she seemed hurried and a little cold.

February 17, 2016

I felt like the care provider was looking for a solution to cure my sinus infections instead of looking for remedies to ease the symptoms.

February 11, 2016

She didn't make me think she was trying to hurry me up.

February 04, 2016

I had lots of questions and felt like Kelly would not have given me as much after care information if I had not asked. Maybe because I had poor information from the internet that she set me straight on.

February 04, 2016

Kelly was very good and thorough. Showed me scans and explained everything well. I had a new problem and she took a lot of time asking questions and giving me solutions and telling me the pharmacy that would have the item I needed. I never felt rushed and enjoyed the visit. I'm happy we have more female doctors, I feel more comfortable with them. I also enjoy the fact we have younger doctors.

January 12, 2016

I saw physician's assistant Kelly. I thought she was professional yet friendly. As I left, I remarked to my wife how glad I was that we had come. It was late on a Friday afternoon, yet Kelly was patient and kind. Somebody should give her a raise.

January 07, 2016


December 06, 2015

Very skilled and knowledgeable

November 21, 2015

like the assistant, she seemed annoyed with me-like she didn't want to "deal" with my problem.

November 10, 2015

good,excellent experience.

October 31, 2015

I felt like the caregiver really didn't want to be bothered with me. I realize caregivers don.t have to like me, but shouldn't be so obvious. I did get good information and was scheduled a test which I had 10 years ago so I agree it was time for another one.

October 24, 2015

I know it was to be thorough but the exam took a long time

October 19, 2015

She was very through and professional an absolute "poster PA" for your ENT Clinic, the best...

October 16, 2015

Very impressed with her knowledge and concerns with my concerns and feelings

October 16, 2015

good experience

October 12, 2015

This was a very positive experience and I felt heard, validated and thought she took great care to make sure I understood the treatment as well as

October 02, 2015

All Good. Thank you Kelly

September 30, 2015


September 29, 2015

very good

September 15, 2015

Provider seemed overly business-like. I felt like I was being friendly and engaged, but she did not smile or seem to make much of a connection with me.

September 12, 2015

She was very informative and explained things in detail.

September 07, 2015

She was rude and unprofessional. Kept smacking her gum in front of my face. Made me feel like I was wrong for coming in to the clinic.

September 01, 2015

Dr. McGuire was very kind and gentle. I appreciate the concern in which she had for my vertigo and the need for helping me feel better.

August 04, 2015

provider was excellent and even looked in my ear due to dizziness after overseas trip

August 02, 2015

Really excellent care. Very focused doctor, paying attention to all aspects of my condition. Great synthesis of several issues. Extraordinary technique for eliminating dizziness.

July 20, 2015

She was great, I would definitely see her again.

June 04, 2015

She was late and then chewed gum while performing the exam - which was right in my face. She told me she'd follow up with an outside agency for therapy but has not contacted me since the visit.

May 26, 2015

I was a little disappointed at first to be assigned a Physician's Assistant versus an M.D. However, I was totally impressed by the P.A., and look forward to seeing her again. Good balance of competence and caring.

May 25, 2015

I was so impressed with the care Kelli gave me

April 30, 2015

Kelly is great. Thank you!

April 27, 2015

personable and informative care providers

April 15, 2015

I felt like this provider was annoyed that I had come in because my problem was not what I thought it was and I am in the process of getting the problem that it actually was taken care of.

April 09, 2015

She was very dismissive about my concerns. Did not check sinuses like I was told she would to see if that is what is adding to symptoms. . I left the office in tears.

April 05, 2015

Kelley was terrific

March 23, 2015

kelly made me feel very comfortable, and confident

February 16, 2015

If I have a recurrent issue, I will be returning to Ms. McGuire for follow up care. I would also recommend her services to others.

February 08, 2015

My only negative was that my care provider didn't show a lot of sympathy for what I was experience because my tests came back as normal. I wish she would have showed a little more concern for how I felt versus what the tests showed.

November 16, 2014

The provider was very professional, listened to my concerns, answered all of my questions and did an excellent job of including my input in decisions regarding treatment.

November 16, 2014

No wait. Explanation of what I had. Treatment and how to be able to do this myself at home. How long it should take to go away

October 06, 2014

Dr. Owen is an awesome doctor, he listens carefully, suggests things without being pushy and respects me as a patient. He is the best.

August 16, 2014

First time seeing the PA instead of Dr. Shelton-she was professional-she has already called to check that things are okay

August 09, 2014

Again, everything was done in a manner that gave us the feeling that everyone genuinely cared.

August 06, 2014

Cori was awesome, friendly and courteous great attitude and welcoming. Dr McGuire was very professional and I liked her bedside matter and I can hear after simple procedure so probably don't need hearing aid that I was fitted for last month at this clinic. Maybe we need to have ent to look at ears before audiologist gets involved after radiation to the brain. It was miraculous that she took care of it - The ent in Evanston had put tubes in because of hearing loss and I think he should have done the procedure she did 1st. I love the U of U PAs and Drs on staff.

August 03, 2014

Kelly was very confident. A few days after my appointment, I was able to talk to her on the phone directly with concerns that I had, which I was impressed with.
