Dr. Gruen is a very busy guy, and I was pleased to get an appointment quickly. My injury was not severe, but I was concerned and definitely wanted and trusted his advice.

August 27, 2015

dr Gruen is the best. his Fellow was also very thorough. I was in very good hands

This office is very professional and efficient. I am an RN in another health care system, but I prefer to come to UPMC orthopedics for the high level care. It's worth the one hour drive!

I met Dr. Gruen several years ago after I was severely injured in an accident. It is because of him that I still have my foot and can walk as well as I do.

I am totally satisfied with the care, skilled surgery and attention from Dr. Gary Gruen's office.

i think that when dr.grun should listen to his patients instead of trying to rush out. also when u give someone a boot after how many ever months of being non weight bareing he should see how they walk and explain that when u first try and walk you are going to feel pain not just saw heres your boot all better

June 25, 2015

This was an excellent experience.

June 11, 2015

Excellent Doctor. I would recommend him highly to anyone

Dr. Gruen was very up front with the pros and cons of what could happen. He didn't beat around the bush and sugar coat he flat out showed me the picture of my arm to tell me the severity of the situation. In my opinion he is the best orthopedic in Pittsburgh I would see anyone else for my arm. He helped my sister and me both and for him I'm great fully proud to say he is my doctor.
