My mom fell and had a open fracture of her left elbow. Everyone has been very caring and asking all of the kids questions and concerns. They took very good care of our mom.

Doctor G is too good! Arrest this man for his fantastic work. A broken ankle in 3 places, and I am walking 5 months later!

As always, Dr. Gary Gruen was kind, professional and listened to me as his patient. He said he wanted me to get better and ordered a test to r/o any radiculopathy. His resident was very kind and professional as well.

I felt he was in my room for two minutes and didn't explain anything. just said I was getting a brace and to come back 2-3 weeks. I made it a point to make sure I could come in right after Easter and he said yes. trying to schedule my follow up & they say he's unavailable.

Dr. Gruen was my trauma surgeon in 2014. I credit him with saving my leg after my accident. He and his staff, including Brian Oswald, the PA have taken excellent care of me.
