Although this survey is specifically for my follow up visit with Dr. Gruen, I feel that it is necessary to note his excellence in surgery skills. Before my surgery, I thought that I wouldn't ever be close to the same again, but when I woke up from the surgery, I knew that I had gotten the best surgeon in the world. His work was unbelievebly magnificent. Now, every day that I get out of bed, I know that I will heal to nearly exactly how I was before. This man is a miracle worker. He's a wizard of orthopedic surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon to help me.

Dr. Gruen is a world class doctor and human being. He went above and beyond to provide me with the care that I needed.

Dr Gruen & his Assistant Brian Oswald & all of his staff are always so very adequate & caring in everything they do for me. I thank God every day for him. He saved my leg in 2oo9. If it were not for him I would not be walking today.

Dr. Gruen is a true professional and an excellent physician and surgeon. He was concerned enough to fit me into his schedule the same day another doctor of mine suggested I go see Dr. Gruen to get his professional opinion of what was causing my pain. Dr. Gruen was kind, listened carefully to my concerns, performed an small procedure right in the exam room which helped identify the source of my pain, offered a number of options we could pursue, answered all my questions and schooled a date for surgery with me before I left the exam room. I could not have asked for a better experience. I was also glad to see Dr. Gruen is training a resident or a new doctor. I can see how me would be a good teacher and mentor.

Entire staff was polite and friendly. Dr. Gary Gruen is awesome . Dr. Gruen explained my xrays, asked questions about my issues, and listened thoroughly to my questions and concerns. Assistant, Beth, was kind, and very thorough with questions and answers.
