Dr. Gruen and his staff were excellent - compassionate, informed, cared about my condition, and obviously had my best interest in mind. Approachable and easy to talk to. Office staff/reception - excellent service and very kind.

the dr was just doing his job I understand that however I'm still in extreme pain bought the shoes they suggested walking with a limp and I just hurt I want to be able to take my daughter out but for summer but no one has ever listened or had concerns about my pain level

I'm very fortunate/privileged, having had Dr. Gruen remedy my injury. His patient care, interaction, and communication, is superb. I highly respect him, for his Patient - Doctor care, and sincerity. Very impressive. Never did Dr. Gruen enter my hospital or clinic (at appointment) room, without a smile , and a firm handshake. He's very easy to communicate with, open, honest, warm and mellow.. He was always informative, and most of my questions were always answered in his reveiw to me. (Many Doctors/Professionals should observe Dr. Gruen; for they could learn a lot from his patient care & relations.) Much thanks to Dr. Gruen. I greatly appreciate all that he has done for me. Of course....I'll recommend Dr. Gruen to all in need.

Dr. Gruen performed an excellent surgery to repair two fractures of my hip. within 4 months I have regained nearly 100% of the mobility and strength I had pre accident. Dr. Gruen discussed with me pre-op the situation and made me feel very confident that he would be able to get me the best possible outcome surgically, which he did even better than my expectations.
