I'm a return client. He did my ruptured biceps tendon repair 4 yrs as a workman's comp claim and now I'm going back as an independent client. He's great at what he does.

He listened to my concerns, asked questions, he seemed to be truly interested in helping me feel better. Gave me choices if there were any so that I felt I was still in control of my treatment. This is my third time (broken leg twice & now my current issues) of having Dr. Gruber get me back on the road to wellness. He's terrific!

Staff was great. Busy place. Brian was super in asking about my history/problem, explaining what was going on the laying out the therapy steps that were likely. The therapy was short and sweet, and I was on my way and on the mend shortly.

I was very impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Gruber's office staff and medical staff. They were well organized and flexible with my needs. They were able to take an x-ray right there during my appointment. He gave me reasonable suggestions for treatment and took plenty to time talking with me. I felt like they actually cared about me as a person. I would definitely go back.

Great doc. Dr. Gruber was a referral from a friend and hes awesome! My last surgeon was a butcher with a huge ego and no soul. Dr. Gruber could be like my successful but down to earth older brother. No complaints at all.

Arrived 10 mins early. Longest wait ever in the waiting room. One hour. Then 1/2 hour in room for X-rays. Then 18 more mins for PA. Never saw Dr. Gruber. Then 12 mins for cortisone shots. In office over 2 hours. I thought I was spending the night. But loved the PA. She was fantastic, so nice, caring and knowledgeable. Wish they would have at least explained the long wait.

The office visit was great, however his staff neglected to order my mri. I called back a week later and explained the MRI wasn’t ordered. They assured me it would be ordered that day and someone would be in contact. Again, It wasn’t ordered and nobody called me back. Inexcusable, repetitive dropping of the ball.
