Dr. Guyer was the son of the late Edith and the late Abram Guyer. Dr. Guyer was raised in Detroit, attended Mumford High School, and graduated from Wayne State University Medical School in 1971.

As a psychiatrist, he served in private practice in Grosse Pointe, Mich., and previously served as chief of psychiatry at Henry Ford Cottage Hospital. He was a beloved teacher through the hospital and the Wayne State University School of Medicine. He was an expert and clinical educator in electroconvulsive therapy, and was devoted to his residents in the program.

Dr. Guyer was a leader in many agencies and programs of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit. He served as a member of local and national boards, including the Jewish Federations of North America. He was a lay leader of Adat Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills, Mich.

Dr. Guyer was & still is the greatest Dr. I've ever known. He began managing my health in 2013 after I left active duty military, if not for his treatment I'm certain I wouldn't be alive today. He genuinely cared about my health.
I'm totally Shocked & devastated. The world now has a voided space that can be filled.

We must pray for his family without ceasing.

He the the best doctor to work for. I was blessed to have worked with him for the past 6 years and to share some of my big life events with him. He was very grateful and appreciative of his staff. He’d always give us a hard time if we left without saying good night. I miss him dearly.
