It was almost 1 hour past my appointment time before I saw the doctor. The doctor I saw for most of my visit was not Dr. Gruen; he appeared during the last 5 mins of my visit and offered very little information.

June 07, 2018

I consulted Dr. Gruen for a second opinion. He and his resident were punctual and very pleasant. Dr. Gruen spent a lot of time with me, he was very patient explaining things and was not rushed.

Dr.Gruen was amazing. He was very helpful getting an appointment sooner due to the injury. He really helped the pain in my knee with the injection and let me live my life again. He is also a very nice guy.

Dr. Gruen, is always excellent in showing much concern about my medical issues. I have been under his care since may of 2015. His whole staff is excellent.
