About Dr. Guzzardi


Dr. Guzzardi, based in Wilmington, Delaware, is unique in the medical field because he is both a physician and toxicologist. These skills allow him to be fully aware of the effects of drugs and alcohol on a person's body. Not everyone is affected by the same dose of toxin in the same way. He can provide the insight you need on these matters in the courts and when dealing with insurance companies. His extensive experience with patients makes his perspective invaluable, and his commitment to make himself available full time for testimony shows that he is a capable and concise witness. He welcomes you to review a summary of his experience below.
