As an FBI agent (now retired) for 31 years, I am familiar with press reportings of my investigations and of others in our field office. I am also familiar with the fact that in some cases, these reports either misrepresented, distorted, or were plain untruthful concerning these investigations.
I realized there was nothing I could do once the articles had been published. Any attempt to correct the untruthful reporting just would have made matters worse. It is an awful thing to be tried and convicted as a result of press articles. There is no defense. The truth of any criminal matter can only be established in court with the witnesses under oath. At the time of trial, accounts are usually very different from what was previously reported in the newspapers.
Dr. Guidry performs a vital service on Marco Island. He has stayed faithful to the practice of family medicine and operates a walk in clinic, where no appointments need be made, and where service is always prompt and courteous. His diagnoses have always been accurate and his prescriptions effective. He feels no compunction about recommending a specialist when he feels this is necessary. I have observed persons of different ethnic backgrounds and of all ages in his office.
It was obvious to me that we shared a faith in Dr. Guidry and a gratitude for the way he runs his clinic. After three years of visits to his office, we have been 100 percent satisfied with his service and competence.
I have often commented to my wife that contrary to popular opinion, we have gotten better and more competent medical service in Florida than we did in the Philadelphia suburbs. Dr. Guidry has been a big reason for this belief.
