Staff was prompt and courteous. Dr. Gruber was professional and outlined multiple treatment options. He didn’t force anyparticular treatment based upon bleeding my insurance. Once I decided which treatment I wanted, he quickly started that path. Highly recommend him for ortho needs.

The staff were courteous. Dr. Gruber was professional and took care of my ailment wuickly. However, the 1 and 1/2 hour wait was ridiculous - no reason to make anyone wait that long. No one came in with any explanation either- pretty presumtious that any patient has that much time to just waste sitting in a room.

Dr. Gruber was great. Actually I should start with the staff, they were all fantastic. Between the front desk gal, to the x-ray tech, and scheduling gal, they were all very nice, super helpful, not at all rushed, and made sureto be clear with everything and give me options to ask any questions. Dr. Gruber was the same way, didn’t feel like he was trying to brush me off and get to the next person but really give me the opportunity to ask any questions I may have about my issue (torn meniscus).
