 Practice Information
Year Established: 1910
Number of physicians in group: 500 Physicians and Advanced Practice Providers
History of group / practice:

In 1910 Dr. Donald Guthrie brought the multi-specialty group practice model to Sayre, PA, from the Mayo Clinic where he performed his surgical residency. The success of this organization is based on the three values that Dr. Guthrie set forth: patient centeredness, teamwork and excellence. These core values inform all our endeavors as we pursue our vision of improving health through clinical excellence and compassion; every person, every time.

Philosophy of the group:

Guthrie President Joseph Scopelliti chose Guthrie for the collegiality, “Because the environment of mutual respect and trust was so unique and attractive to me that I had to stay.” In the complex and chaotic business of healthcare, the real strength of a physician-led group practice model like Guthrie’s is the ability to remove the complexity and minimize obstacles. This way, physicians and their support staff can provide the very best care for patients with the greatest degree of ease and efficiency.

Practice Description :

This individual will work closely with colleagues in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, and dentistry to help meet the growing demands for oral surgery in the communities we serve.

Quality of patient care is enhanced through a historically cooperative relationship with the medical sections with which we most often co-manage patient care. Over the nearly 70 years that Dental Services have been provided at the Guthrie Clinic, Physicians and Dentists have maintained a working relationship that not only provides for good patient care, but also for a rewarding clinical environment.
