Verified Patient Reviews
I like the direct and to the point approach
Consistently great treatment.
Dr. Gruber was great to work with. He explains things well and offers several suggestions and ideas as far as therapy is concerned. I highly recommend him. MG
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.
I found Dr. Gruber to be personable and focused on the patient and took the time to understand my case.
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.
Dr. Gruber is an outstanding surgeon. He takes time to answer questions thoroughly and listens to all of your concerns. Great demeanor.
I felt theDr gave me the opportunity to explain why I was there. He explained everything to me so I understood.
Professional. To the point. Clear options. Amicable and pleasant.
Dr. Gruber put me at ease right away and he has EXCELLENT knee injetion skills.
Dr. Gruber's team is very professional, his assistant was very Thorough and was able to answer any questions I had! I would definitely recommend his practice and his staff!
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.
Very professional office and staff.
Very intuitive, informative and professional.
I haven't been treated yet, but so far, so good!
Very professional and personable. Started treatment of my knee right away.
He listened to my concerns and gave my options for my care.
Dr. Gruber was warm, friendly and very professional, as were his staff. I explained my ailment, then x-rays were taken. Dr. Gruber looked at the x-rays and recommended treatment. On my way to being pain free.
I appreciate his detail and confidence in treatment of my injury. He communicated that it may be something that we can handle through simple treatment and time OR it may be something we need to address more aggressively later.
Everyone in the office was very nice and professional. Dr. Gruber took an interest in my yoga for seniors classes, diagnosed problem and treated it Just the simple answer I wanted. I already feel much better.
I was very pleased with his professionalism, courtesy, and kindness. He was thorough and answered all of my questions. He gave me treatment options and explained each option in detail. He didn't make me feel like he was rushed either even though I know there were other patients waiting. Excellent experience. He was highly recommended by a friend. Now I know why. I would also highly recommend him.
Enjoyed the first visit Dr gave several options and we worked through them and came up with an option I liked
This is a great dr. Cares and gives hope. Made a big difference
So organized from the online appointment and follow up messages.. Very impressed with x-raytechnician, Dr, Gubernatorial and Staff. Everything explained Followed with shot and check out also excellent
Great office staff , very clean and well equipped office . Dr was tentative and accomodating .. Highly recommended !!
Great doctor, great team of assistants.
The staff is the problem not the doctor
He's fantastic. I'd go to him all the time if I could...
Dr. Gruber and his entire staff make going to the doctor a pleasant experience! Nora S.
I have seen Dr Gruber several times and I have yet to be disappointed with each outcome. He is personable, shows concern for his patients and I will continue to use his services.
Dr Gruber was very personable and went through my options.
Dr. Gruber and his staff were terrific!
It's nice being able to get an appointment with the dr pretty quickly. I was able to find an open time within 3 days of looking for one, plus he had really good reviews online. The wait is pretty typical for a doctor's office. I ended up in the waiting room for about 45 minutes, then another 15 minutes in the exam room. They do xrays in house, so that was nice and quick, and once Dr. Gruber came to see me, I didn't feel rushed. He listened to my condition and made recommendations. He answered my question and I felt like he did listen when I talked. I would recommend him to my friends.
Very professional & personable. Took time to explain his evaluation findings and made me feel at ease.
Everyone is so pleasant in the office.
Other than the wait time (about 15 minutes in the front office & then approx. 45 min in the exam room waiting for the doc), everything was excellent. Good bedside manner/personality & very helpful.
He seemed to have an automatic X-ray procedure and because I wanted to see him first the wait was quite long.
Dr Gruber and his staff are great.
excellent treatment and great office efficiency
Dr. Gruber was thorough and compassionate, and what I liked most is he is conservative and careful. He did not want to schedule me for immediate surgery, and opted for an MRI and shots for relief first, so he could get the full picture. Outstanding.
First time visit....Dr Gruber explained everything clearly.
All question was address very helpful setup a plan staff very helpful and understand in office and on the phone
Dr Gruber has planned a conservative treatment for my rotator cuff injury. He was knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. I highly recommend him.
PA Gretchen examined my knees and explained what the x-rays showed. There is no treatment indicated at this time and I can get back in touch with their office if my conditions change. All of the staff were professional and efficient!
Appreciated every part of my visit. The staff is attentive, punctual, informed. No complaints. Especially liked Dr. Gruber's bedside manner and honesty. I was able to get in quickly which definitely helped my knee. Thank you Dr. Gruber and his team.
I have going to Dr. Gruber for over 6 years for various reasons! He has done a knee surgery for me and his bed side manner is awesome! I have recommended him to many people! I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I appreciate the front office staff. Very friendly! Thank you to Dr. Gruber for your attentiveness. I appreciate you and will definitely refer my friends and family to you. Thank you:)
Very professional Excellent staff
Very personal young man! Awesome doctor!
Brian Gruber and his people are the best!
Love being able to book on line with Zocdoc
Very professional and thorough explained the problem and what the options I had.
Nice people. Dr. GRUBER was very pleasant as was the entire staff.
Very personable and professional
Very professional. Very confident about his abilities to the point of being cocky. But that's fine because I want the best working on me. Great sense of humor.
Smart and thorough. Didn't rush things and answered all my questions.
Love Dr. Gruber! My whole family goes to him. He is thoughtful in his treatment and puts us at ease.
We had a great visit with Dr Gruber & staff! Great experience & I would highly recommend them!
I can't really complain about the long wait as I didn't make the appointment till this morning and they were still able to get me in the same day. Dr Gruber is great and the staff is excellent
Always the best. Outstanding office and physician.
Dr. Gruber listened, his support staff were fantastic. A great experience.
Professional as always. Everyone in the office is friendly
Dr. Gruber was polite and friendly.
I scheduled the 8:00 am appointment so I could get to work right away and I waited until 8:40 am to be seen. I was late to work and it threw off the rest of my day.
Gruber and his team are the very best professionals and Gretchen is very attractive.
I met with Rob for injections!! He is superb at administering these injections. No pain whatsoever. I highly recommend this office and staff.
There are a few doctors that you feel at ease and comfortable with on your first visit, Dr Gruber is one of them. I felt he was listening and very attentive to my issues.
Went very well. Dr and PA we're both great
Excellent customer service. I waited about fifteen minutes from check in time to when I was called back. Staff was very friendly and efficient.
I like Dr. Gruber. He is very personal and took me in on time for my appointment.
Best Dr. and staff ever. If you need an ortho doc he is your guy.
Dr. Gruber and his staff explained everything in great detail. Wait time was less than 30 minutes.
Dr Gruber and all of his staff are amazing. We recommend them often and wouldn't go anywhere else.
Very caring and personable doctor.
Dr. Gruber was very friendly and kind. Took plenty of time to answer questions. The rest of his team were also friendly and professional.
I booked the 1pm appt. which is the first after lunch so I wouldn't experience a log wait. I was put in the room at 1:10 but the Dr. didn't come in until 1:50. This didn't make me happy. I like the guy, but really, 50 minute wait on a first after lunch appt? AND, no acknowledgement of the wait. That was a real disappointment. The probability of my return is about 50%.
Brian is a real professional. Very personable and straight to the point.
Nice office, helpful assistants. Would defiantly recommend!
Dr. Gruber was excellent. He saw me on my introductory exam, which was refreshing because most office have you see a P.A. and it may be 1-3 visits before you ever see the physician you made the appoint with. Dr. Gruber listened, was informative and did not try to push pills, unnecessary PT and/or surgical procedures. I have been around healthcare most of my adult life and this is what seeing a physician used to be. Time to examine, listen and discuss the best course of treatment. I feel fortunate to have found him.
Highly professional and very customer oriented. Lets hope the surgery goes as quick and a well as the appointment? Wow!
Dr.Gruber is A+ in my book and his PA is excellent as well. The entire staff is friendly and very helpful.
Thoroughly impressed with my first experience using ZocDoc and Dr. Brian Gruber. Filling out paperwork online was a breeze, wait time was less than 15 minutes, even though I arrived late because of traffic difficulties, and the whole staff was friendly and helpful. As a registered nurse myself, I'm probably a little more picky than most, and Dr. Gruber and his staff delivered admirably!
Dr Gruber is very personable and has a staff that is very friendly and professional.
He was seriously amazing.
Dr. Gruber is my go to Ortho doc! I'm a very tough critic. He is the entire package - great physician, organized and attentive staff, many services available in office, kind and caring personality, quick to get an appointment. Susan and Michelle are dedicated and professional support staff. My visit today with Dr. Gruber was a great example of first class medical care. The PA Rob is also fantastic. His post op care and attention was comforting 4 years ago when I had knee surgery. Last year, I saw him for a fractured elbow that just needed physical therapy. Again, very comforting when I was very concerned about surgery or casting which I did not need. It shows me that they treat the problem and don't go overboard with unnecessary procedures. Dr. Gruber and his staff could be a model for other practices.
His office staff was very friendly and professional. Only waited 10 minutes. He was great about listening and very knowledgable.
Dr. Gruber is a knowledgeable and caring doctor and his staff is professional and friendly. I highly recommend this doctor!
I went to see Dr. Gruber about a tumor in my shoulder. He spent a considerable amount of time showing me the MRI and discussing my options. In the end he decided to refer me to a tumor specialist. I appreciate his candor and his concern for my care being above his bottom line.
ALL staff, receptionist, Susan, Derek and Dr Gruber all professional, helpful, caring demeanor, and experienced with the medical issue that I presented. I have worked in the health field for 35 years and recognize professional quality health care
Handsome young Doctor...very nice ....easy to talk to. Nice staff too..............Very nice front office..... Barbara M.
Brian was excellent in answering my questions and giving me advice on what my options were for my knees. Look forward to seeing him again.
Dr. Gruber was very nice and knowledgeable. I injured my shoulder and he immediately found the problem. He gave me a diagnosis that was non invasive. He talked about his duty to his patients to be honest with them and present them with every possible option an explain which one works best in his opinion, instead of just pushing surgery like some orthopedics. Very friendly, didn't feel like I was speaking to an authoritative doctor, but someone who is knowledgeable and wants to help and has the tools to.
So professional patient and informative. Very caring doctor. Having prp done can hardly wait
Dr. Gruber was very professional and knowledgeable. He took x-rays, which showed arthritis of both knees. After a brief examination, he said that I may be a candidate for PCP (platelet-rich plasma) injections. His staff is making arrangements for a MRI to see why my pain is so severe. I was extremely pleased with my first visit to Dr. Golub.
I was there because I re-injured my shoulder and bicep. Dr. Gruber set me up with PT and meds.
Dr. Gruber and his staff are amazing. He is compassionate and understanding. You are never rushed and he will answer all your questions. He also is a great surgeon. I have recommended him to several people and will continue to do so.
Waited over 45 minutes. Not sure if they double book or what. They called in 3 patients form the waiting room within a few minutes, but then I sat in exam room for over 40 minutes. Doctor answered all my questions and provided good information on my options and various treatments. Eye contact not good for some reason.
Very informative and caring
Only Ortho I will go to...
It was good.
Dr. Gruber very professional and friendly. Makes you feel at ease.
I was seen very quickly and never got any care that satisfied me any bit whatsoever. Still have knee problems from an injury that was considered, "Very minor. It should not hurt bad, as there is no sign of tearing or bone breakage." It has no been over a year and three months, and my knee is still in pain every day. Please find another knee doctor if you wish to get any actual help towards healing your body, and you may be able to do the things you love once more. I am still on the sidelines because of the lack of information this man has given me, and I have now had to take matters into my own hands and find another doc who will actually sit down and go over my symptoms. Unfortunately, this doctor is motivated by the number of patients he receives, without ever thinking of the level of care which he provides. Much of the medical industry is conta
Staff was great.....ALL. I'm going back in a week or so for a series of injections for my knee. I expect the service will be great going forward as well
Friendly staff and even more wonderful Doctor!! Always gives many options and supportive in decision making. I recommend Dr. Gruber to all I know.
their xray machine was broken so I had to go to the SMIL office next floor up. waited 45 minutes because Dr. Gruber's other patients needing xrays were there. Dr. Gruber is very capable. While he administered 2 cortisone shots for my tennis elbow and sore shoulder, we consequently found articles on line that say cortisone is only a short term fix and really not very effective. It is obviously the treatment of choice for minimal injuries of this kind.
He listens, and explains things very well
The office staff insisted I needed a referral from my primary care physician, which my plan does not require. I had to call my insurance company and get a representative to talk to the office and verify that. It took forever! The MD was ok--
Top notch orthopedic doctor. Dr. Gruber is and always will be my choice for all orthopedic issues I have now and in the future. Competent and thorough. Office environment and staff are also amazing! I wish all of my doctors were like Dr. Gruber!!!
Dr Gruber is a true professional and takes his time to explain what he sees and how your ailment can be fixed. Will continue to go to him as needed.
Very friendly and professional staff. Dr Gruber is extremely knowledgable, personable, answered all my questions and never made me feel rushed. He's one of the best physicians I've ever met with. Highly reccomend to others.
Excellent staff. Dr. Gruber makes you feel at ease and confident in his treatment.
He and the office staff were great being a visitor i wondered it was a pleasant surprise
Dr. Gruber was very attentive and was a good listener. He handled my problem very well and didn't rush the visit. I would highly recommend him to others. MG
Dr.Gruber is was awesome.... A true professional I will definitely recommend. His staff is just as professional. Thank you. Calvin Barnhill
I like him because he is friendly, straight to the point, and listens to you. It's a very professional office, the staff is great, and I like that he wears a suit. I think it shows respect for his profession and for his patients.
I have been seeing Dr. Gruber for about 10 years now.. I would not go to any other orthopedist!!
Dr. Gruber was great! Very smart guy with a good heart. He provided good treatment and sent me on my way without making a bigger deal of my shoulder injury than was needed. I recommend him highly.
Appreciated the time he took with me. Very kind and personable.
Dr Gruber was efficient and to the point.
Dr. Gruber and his staff are thorough, friendly, and professional. My husband and I have both seen Dr. Gruber.
I had a great visit with Dr. Gruber. He was very knowledgable and had great bedside manner.
He was flat awesome! I left with the feeling that I will be well taken care of. I would advise anyone that needs a orthopedic surgeon, look no further.
Great guy.....Listened and took his time. Wait was longer than I would have liked, but guess he takes his time with everyone......a good thing. Maybe office should spread his appointments out more. Discusse all options and let me be the decision maker. Will be back and will recommend.
very professional, staff was polite. informative, and answered all my questions, online check in saved a lot of time and conformation was quick, maybe in the future they may have some pre paper work forms online
Work out just right
Dr. Gruber is easy to talk to and very understanding.In my opinion they don't come any better..His evaluations are right on target and his office personnel very friendly and courteous
Very informative & helpful. I understand perfectly what the treatment will be.
I really liked Dr. Gruber! And the staff is wonderful! Susan was delightful and very helpful! When Dr. Gruber came in he let me discuss what I felt was wrong with my left shoulder since I have had surgery on it in 2007! Then he had me do some arm raises and stretches! He felt the arm! And made a few determinations! He is very cautious as to treatment! He wanted to do a steroid injection and then PT before we do an MRI which could lead to surgery! So I did get the injection and will start PT! The injection was very easily, technologically, and painlessly performed by Dr. Gruber! Great office decor and demeanor too! I am happy my friend, who had her broken kneecap repaired by Dr. Gruber, recommended him to me! My husband is going to see him for his painful knee very soon!
He is the best. Very pleasant and patient! He did rotator cuff surgery. Have not had a problem since! Amazing!
I had heard Dr. Gruber was always late......I waited less than 20 minutes, I was happy. 1st time visiting him, hope that the office gets back to me soon with my follow up.......have no thoughts that they won't. all good.
Alway professional and compassionate.
Dr has very good rapport and is extremely knowledgeable. Explains things in detail and easy to converse with. Staff very friendly and caring
Always a little skeptical with unknown physicians - nothing to worry about here! Doc Gruber was fantastic! I had a very swollen knee, he was very nice, understanding, presented me all of my options and likely causes, and most of all...was honest! All went well. He knows his trade well, provided humor, drained the fluid, scheduled an MRI, and all is well. Office extremely comfortable, but the annoying "talk radio" crap was bothersome- that's the admin person's fault. I feel she had no consideration for my request to turn it down or off - it was her bubbly little world and I had to live in it - thankfully for a short time ( ever hear of satellite radio?)
Wait time was about 30 but it was my first visit and had paperwork to complete.
Professional and courteous
This office was very friendly and efficient. The staff was great and the doctor was great. I've been to knee Dr's off and on for the last 20 years and Dr Gruber is by far the best one I've seen to date. He explained all the options and we agreed on a course of action for me. The first thing he did was drain some fluid from my knee which provided instant relief. Not one of my previous Dr's even mentioned that! We will start with shots and go from there. So far so good.
I enjoy seeing Dr. Gruber, even when it involves a little pain now & then. Dr. Gruber always listens carefully about what's bothering me, and then discusses possible treatments in light of my medical history and current tests. The treatments I've received are successful and provide good relief. Dr. Gruber is quick & efficient but I never feel he is rushing or hurrying me to get to the next patient. A lot of credit goes to his staff who are invisibly acting behind the scenes to truly support the practice and make everything go smoothly.
Office is modern and lovely, Doctor is friendly yet professional! The staff was great as well--such a breath of fresh air in this day and age. So far, the best medical practice I've seen in Phoenix thus far!
Very personable. Took the time to answer questions and to explain all treatment options.
Great staff, comfortable office and Dr. Gruber has been my Doctor for over two years. He is an excellent Physician, very caring, and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else!
Dr. Gruber is a wonderful physician. Extremely thorough. He has a great bedside manner, listens and answers questions with care and integrity. Truly understanding his patients needs, questions, thoughts and working together with his patient as a team to deliver a great experience and treatment plan.
He is always professional and great bedside manner
I have been seeing Dr. Gruber off and on for 8 years now. Two surgeries and help with the bursitis in my hip... I will just say that I would not go to any other Orthopedist!
Really knows what he's talking about. A super cool guy too.
Dr Gruber and his assistant, Susan, are both awesome! Both are very kind and patient with me...never make me feel rushed and I woudnt go anywhere else.
Terrific staff. Doctor actually listens! Well done!
Excellent. Had great bedside manner knowledge treated you as a person not a number.
Very personable, thorough & great listener. I felt comfortable asking all my questions in which he took the time to answer.
Dr. Gruber and his whole team really care about you. They are not only professional, but friendly, efficient, and timely in assisting you. For example, I was able to make my appointment online for the next day, unlike some other doctors where you can wait for weeks. And while his office was busy, my wait to see him was less than 15 minutes. How Integrated Orthopedics operates -- from the time you make your appointment to when you leave after seeing Dr. Gruber -- is a model for the rest of the profession.
They were professional, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Thorough, professional and on time!
Excellent! Love the new office!
From the woman receptionist to the person who took my information, the x-ray tech all were very friendly and professional I like the Doctor very much, he listen to the problems and came up with a well thought out plan of action. I would go to Dr. Gruber again for any joint problems.
Very professional, great listener, and offered a solution to my shoulder pain.
Very professional office personnel. Everyone seemed very knowledgeable, from the PA, X-ray Tech, and Dr. Gruber. Dr. Gruber explained everything carefully. Also is great that they have a physical therapy office right there.
Dr. Gruber has always been honest and professional regarding the treatment and recovery from the injury and surgery.
Dr. Gruber is thorough and knowledgeable. He actually listens to you which is rare in most professionals anymore. I've had great outcomes with anything he has suggested.
Dr.Gruber was excellent, they x-rayed my knee and performed a minor shot. his staff was courteous and friendly.
Excellent doctor! Well trained and attentive to my concerns. Professional office makes you feel comfortable.
One stop shopping, knee was swollen like a grapefruit, quick diagnosis and treatment! Thanks Dr Gruber and staff!
I ma severely disappointed I have been waiting almost 4 wks to get an MRI scheduled. It was denied initially because the office did not submit their clinical with the order. It has now been another 3 wks that I have not been able to get this reolved.
Very friendly, the advice was about what I expected, didn't try to rush to surgery. Overall very pleased.
From the minute you walk in, you are made to feel welcome and confortable. They staff is very accommodating and helpful. Loved my experience here.
I made my decision to see Dr. Gruber based on many positive reviews. As others have stated, the office staff are indeed a pleasure to deal with. In fact, they contacted me the day of the appointment to explain that the Dr. had been held-up unexpectedly in surgery and asked if I could re-book. When I explained that I was already in the area and had traveled almost 70 miles, they were very gracious in accommodating me later in the day; that is the only reason for the one-star rating for wait time. Booking an appointment on ZocDoc was easy and intuitive. I came to Dr. Gruber expecting that he'd tell me surgery was inevitable, but after a frank and open discussion, we came to the conclusion together that a more conservative treatment would be a better way to start. It is refreshing to deal with a professional who truly listens to the patient and engages them in their own treatment decisions!
Very knowledgeable, got right to the issues I was having with my knee and gave me a quick diagnosis. Very happy with Dr. Gruber and would recommend him to anyone.
Wonderful office. Professional staff. X-ray, office visit, and injection in less than an hour.
My experience with Dr Gruber was fantastic. I was greeted by friendly staff and seen ontime. Dr Gruber was polished and professional. He took the time to listen to personally listen to me, not just send in a medtec to gather the notes. I had xrays done onsite and it was very quick. Dr Gruber joined me again and discussed by films and treatment options. He administered the shots himself and used ultrasound equipment so make sure the shot got to the right place (I watched it too). No guess work!. Unbelievably, Dr Gruber called me on the weekend to see how I was doing!!!! Unbelievable customer service experience. I highly recommend Dr Gruber.
**note I wrote this reviews after multiple visits to the office** I had a lisfranc injury that became far worse after visiting a Doctor someone had recommended to me. I was in so much pain, I woke up at 2-3am and decided to look up for another Doctor at Zocdoc. I'm glad I found Dr. Gruber on Zocdoc. The office is clean and modern. In the few visits I had so far, the staffs particularly Ruby and Susan, were pleasant and had more than once went out of their way to make me feel comfortable (knowing I had limited mobility). This is a night and day compare to the previous Doctor office that had further injured my foot. They were chaotic, rude, non-emphatic and certainly unhelpful. Dr. Gruber has also been far more approachable. Moreover, they also offer physical therapy within the same floor (Jessica is a great therapist!). Highly recommend Integrated Orthopedics. Ps: better treat the staffs well and try to keep them. They make all the difference in keeping the business running. Somehow this is missed by many other Doctors I've dealt with in the past.
Dr. Gruber is so bright, is so on top of his game in his field of orthopedic medicine, and the care that he shows for each of his patients is quite simply the best. As a 66 year old lifelong, avid runner, who wants to remain so for many more years, I feel blessed to have Dr. Gruber as my orthopedic doctor! If there was a sixth star on the ZocDoc rating scale, Dr Gruber as a doctor and skilled surgeon would warrant it!
One of Dr. Gruber's greatest skills is simply listening. He was clearly very talented at finding the right diagnosis and in making sure we understood available treatments, but I've never been to another doctor that truly seems that interested in the patient's real goals in treatment. I felt like a consultant in my own care rather than just a customer.
I was very impressed with the office, staff, and doctor. It was professional, yet friendly. I felt very comfortable. Dr. Gruber took time to ask questions and explain his recommendations and reasons for those recommendations. I did not feel like he rushed me through…..I felt like a patient/client and that I was important. Highly recommend.
I thought the people were real nice, but I did not like that my appointment took an hour and a half.
Very knowledgeable and kind
Excellent visit, I would recommend him to anyone!
He is excellent!
I thought he did a good job listening and gave great explanations for what he thought was going on.
First time patient, completed paperwork online, had to redo paperwork at the office, still don't know why. Dr. Gruber spent about 10 minutes initially then another few minutes to assure me that what he suggested was the best way to proceed- drain the fluid and inject steroids, then if MRI was necessary, we would determine that at the next appointment. At least I was to call and we could make a decision at that time. The procedure was as explained, he showed and explained as he completed the procedure. I liked his direct approach, took the time,making sure I understood his diagnosis and prognosis. If you are looking for a Knee Othro Dr. He would be a good one, I certainly would go to him again. Now I did not have any surgery, so I can't speak to that. I will say I didn't want to do what I did, his approach calmed me enough to proceed and not 12 hours later, I am satisfied!
Dr Gruber is the best orthopedic surgeon I have even had treatment and surgery from!! I have had knee problems for over 15 years and Dr. Gruber has fixed my knee!! I have seen several orthopedic surgeons and they all said their is nothing they could do for me. I have had an orthopedic surgery from Gruber and then an ACL surgery from him and both were amazing! The recovering is so quick and the therapists at Integrated Orthopedics are THE BEST! Dr. Gruber really cares about his patients and I am so thankful for his expertise and patient care. I would recommend him to ANYONE! Thank you DR. GRUBER!!
Dr Gruber is very professional and LISTENS to you. I highly recommend him. You won't be disappointed.
Very professional, great personality, you feel very confident in his abilities. I was in and out within 45 minutes. I drive all the way from Parker, Arizona just to see him.
Really good doctor
Great new office right off the 101 at Tatum. Friendly atmosphere.
Came in for a knee problem that wasn't straightforward. Dr. Gruber spent a lot of time talking about relevant causes and what to do about it. Even encouraged followup with him to let him know how I was doing.
Dr. Gruber is very nice, great bedside manner and very efficient.
Office is awesome clean new current. dr. gruber is excellenct and trust him fully he knows what he is doing.
A great place to go and be treated well, by both Dr. Gruber and his staff. My 2nd visit, with consistent quality orthopedic care. Everyone there is a pleasure to work with on my recovery.
As always, I was treated courteously, quickly and professionally. Dr. Gruber has a way of explaining things for anyone to understand. Consummate professional.
Very personable physician.. He listened to my concerns and made recommendations . I did not feel rushed and feel like I am good hands as I proceed with treatments.
Very good, staff were all wonderful. The only problem was wait times were a little long.
Professional manners with genuine concern for my health needs. Waiting room was nicely decorated and comfortable.
Physician very concerned with making sure I felt better soon.
Great doctor/surgeon. Wonderful staff and cool new office!
Love Dr. Gruber! Staff is great, too. Loved the "no" wait today!
Dr. Grueber was friendly and had AMAZING bedside manners. He answered all of my questions and was not in a rush to get out of my appointment. The nurses were super friendly as well and even after I left I had a question and I came back to the office a few minutes later and they answered my question. I hope I never need to go back, but if I do I would see Dr. Gruber.
Very professional, easy to speak to and friendly. Would recommend
The staff was really nice and friendly. Not like most doctors offices I've been to
Dr Gruber is thorough, listens to your concerns and makes recommendations. He has a great manner that makes you feel comfortable. I have seen him twice before and have been pleased with all of his care.
These people make my head spin they are so professional. Very nice, respectful, kind, innovative in treatment, state of the art. Does try alternative methods before resorting to surgery. Thinks of the whole person. Someone there to ask questions to, including full time person to help with insurance claims. Honest and straightforward.
The entire staff was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Susan had me ready for the doctor in very short order and Jason was quick and efficient in taking x-rays. Dr. Gruber was wonderful - extremely professional, friendly, reassuring, confident in his diagnosis, patient in explaining my x-rays, and gave me my knee injection himself - I was impressed!
Dr Gruber and his MA Susan were fantastic! Very personable and professional at the same time. I would highly recommend Dr. Gruber!
I was very early and expected to wait but no! I was out 2 minutes before my appt time. Dr was fantastic. This was a 1st visit did not feel rushed he took alot of time to talk with me. The MA was very kind. If I ever ever need a ortho dr again this is where I would go without hesitation. The front staff is friendly. Xray guy was funny and had patience. Highly recommend.
Dr. Gruber seemed to be in a hurry this visit. I didn't get a chance to ask him my questions before he left.
He is very knowledgeable, patient, and informative!
Dr.Gruber was an absolute delight. He was genuine in caring for my well being and treatment plan. I have never broken anything before and felt safe and confident in his hands. The staff was very pleasant and assisted with my insurance and future scheduling. I have already recommended friends in need of care to Dr.Gruber, and will continue to anyone in need.
great staff, very personable doctor!
I was extremely impressed with the service, the advice and aftercare instructions I received from Dr. Gruber and his assistant. I'd suffered for far too long with this injury and had 'put a band-aid' on the problem by visiting another doctor. Within 10 hours after my visit with Dr. GRUBER, I was no longer in pain, muscle spasms had ceased and range of motion issues were no longer problematic. The instructions I received post treatment will ensure I won't visit his office too soon.
My wife did a good job choosing a doctor fort knee problem. Dr. Gruber was very nice and knowledge. John
He's incredibly professional and extremely knowledgeable. He makes you feel very comfortable with every decision in the process.
Incredible-dr, assistant and receptionist
Courteous, prepared, helpfully & professional
Excellent Doctor ! Very Caring !! Very Professional !!!
Dr. Gruber's office was very efficient. I was seen in a timely manner, all office staff were pleasant and professional, and I am pleased with the result.
Everything went smooth and professionally. His assistant (whose name I can't remember!) :( Dr. Gruber came in and we talked for a few while he checked my foot. He took care of me and I was on my way! Highly recommend!
I think Dr Gruber is fantastic. Very professional, bright, friendly.
Very informative and listened to my needs
It does not get much better than this. They are kind, professional, intelligent, and down to earth. Everything is done efficiently and without drama, and they don't waste your or their own time being disorganized, etc. The guy is a surgeon and he is good at what he does. Trustworthy. I have a scope done on my knee and arthritis clean up and meniscus repair. My knee was a mess. it was an easy surgery and went well. Relax and consider yourself lucky if you found this guy.
Dr. Gruber is great, he is completely competent and helped me make the best decision about my health by presenting the options and discussing what makes the most sense. Highly recommended!
Excellent care by Dr. Gruber. It was my first visit to his office, so I arrived 30 minutes early (8:15 for an 8:45 appointment). I was in an exam room by 8:20. That is PHENOMENAL and unheard of to be seen early. Staff was friendly and very helpful. I will definitely be back here for any future orthopedic needs.
Staff and doctor friendly, informative, and listened to my information.
He took time for me and cared about what I needed..
Friendly, organized an efficient. Wish more doctor's office were this way.
I am a nurse practitioner and I am telling you, This is the ortho surgeon you want! Dr. Gruber's office staff, assistants and PA's are friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. Dr. Gruber is friendly, experienced and knowledgeable with a great bed side manner, and sense of humor. He takes his time to explain your diagnosis and options. In my case, I required a surgical repair. Dr. Gruber spent time to explain all details and answer all questions. So refreshing during this time where MD's are so pressed for time. Follow-up visits post surgery with him and his PA-C Rob were just as great!
This was my second visit. I can't believe how well run the place is, how friendly and alert are the staff. It's like clockwork efficiency. Also, he does not rush you, acts like he has all the time in the world, does not rush you. He gives you advice, and leaves the decision making up to you. He is supportive and intelligent. I had to contact the office between visits because I had some problems, my knee got worse. I had to wait for an appointment but the P.A. called me back and same deal, he acted like he had all the time in the world and did not rush me, but gave me suggestions, information, and pain medication. The suggestions were spot on, and helped. I cannot think of anything critical to say, other than it takes a long time to get an appointment, I think because he is so highly recommended.
Very calming. I was a bit nervous.
Dr. Gruber takes the time to really explain everything. The staff is awesome.
It is a very big, clean, organized, warm and friendly place. They are very efficient and on top of everything. For example, lots of places can't access your "pre-appointment" stuff you fill in on ZocDoc, but the nurse had already scanned it and put it in my file so I have only a few papers to sign, and to hand my ins. card and pay my co-pay. The Drs. PA, a warm and pleasant man escorted me back to the Drs. office and LISTENED carefully to my concerns about my knee. They did an x-ray right there down the hall in another warm, pleasant area, and it was not rushed, but expedient, Did not have to put on a gown, any of that stuff. I asked for a copy of my x-rays right there, so she gave me a disc for my records (it's my right free of charge,) and then the doctor came in, wanted to hear my story first hand, as well, LISTENED and then put up and talked to me about my x-rays, and issues, gave my knee a shot, (I swear, swear, it did not hurt; I don't know how he did that.) They all seem very healthy and happy at this office, and genuinely intelligent. He recommended PT at a place with his protocol right near my house. No follow up unless I need it. I am glad I booked with him, it was worth the wait. I booked while I was looking for another possible doctor, because he book pretty far out there, so I was glad I decided to go with him, I was fully out the there on my way home 1 hour later start to finish, and never rushed.
Everyone was super friendly. Very knowledgable and explained everything yo me
Dr. Gruber was very informative and I was relieved to finally see a doctor who gave you options. I highly recommend him!!
This is after my first visit, but so far I'm very impressed. The Doctor and his staff were all great. Highly recommend them.
He is wonderful. Takes time to talk and answer questions. Very knowledgeable and caring doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Gruber.
Took forever to see my son and when finally came in room he was so quick didn't ask my son any question and then walked out without giving him a chance to let him know about other problems or concerns he had!!!
Dr. Gruber was cordial and provided immediate feedback, including treatment options.
Dr. Gruber is great. However, his front-office staff are ill-prepared and understaffed. This office needs to either stop taking new clients or expand.
Dr. Gruber is very friendly and knowledgable . He is precise and professional. All of the staff were friendly and seemed happy doing what they do. A sign for me of a professional and stress free environment.
Dr. Gruber was friendly and did rush me through this appointment. I like the way he sat down and visited with me in a relaxed manner. I know there were more patients to be seen but he made me feel like he had all the time in his day to hear me and help me understand what my concerns were. I liked that I was able to make decisions concerning my treatment plan and yet he was still looking out for my best interest. I loved meeting Susan, she was incredibly friendly and efficient. I enjoyed seeing Rob again. He is always a delight.
The office is very friendly. Dr. Gruber, Rob the PA, and Susan the nurse are very interested and caring...
Listened to my concerns and agree to perform surgery on my Achilles Tendon when 3 other surgeons would not.
Front office is in disorder and not friendly, but the nurses and back office is very good. Don't bother arriving early I guess. Doesn't seem to matter.
It was good, although the problem still persists=- must schedule followup
Very friendly, knowledgable and personable. I really like him.
Very professional. Appointment handled well. I arrived about one hour before appointment time and I was able to see the doctor about 45 minutes before my appointment time.
I love Dr. Gruber. Gets the job done, doesn't waste your time! So Don't waste his
Dr. Gruber was extremely friendly and provided his expertise on my knee problems in a manner in which I could understand. I never felt rushed, and he listened to (and addressed) all of my concerns. The office was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful as well. This is one of the best physician appointments I have had and plan to continue to see Dr. Gruber to remedy any bone/joint problems that occur. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
It was a very courteous and definitive visit (i.e., cause of foot and ankle pain, excluded fx.) and provided device to gradually reduce pain-- a boot which seems to be helping, but a ways to go.
Dr. Gruber made me feel very comfortable. His manner and presence were engaging and genuine. I felt I got good treatment, good instruction, and good care. I do want to say that I took a good amount of time the day before to fill out forms online in preparation for my meeting. I don't recall seeing anything on the website where I filled out that information that asked me to print them off and bring them with me. If that was in fact on the page, it was not evident to me and I completely missed it. You may want to fix that. But, if it wasn't there at all, then what happened when I arrived was all the more frustrating. I got there 20 minutes early for my appointment, and was handed about ten pages of material asking pretty much the exact same information I had taken the time to fill out online when I made the appointment. I was very exasperated when I was told to do them all over, having taken to time to forward that info to your office through the webpage. When I told the attendant I filled it out online, she said, and pretty curtly, I might add, that unless I printed all that material out and brought it they had no way to access it. Needless to say, I was disappointed and frustrated to have to sit there and do that all over again.
Great visit. He provide a concise understanding of the issues and the various approaches available to me. He recommended course of action that made the most sense.
Very professional and genuinely interested, great staff too.
Brian understands individual patient's needs and accommodates to them to meet each patients expectations. I highly recommend Brian.
I made my appointment online for 9:00 but when I got there they had me listed at 10:30. I just sat and read my book for about an hour and was called a little after 10:00. I was very satisfied with the visit.
I feel informed, he explains everthing to where I actually understand. He extremely competant. It's been a long time since I've trusted a doctor, and didn't feel as though I needed a second opinion.
I've been suffering for 2 months. He was very understanding, thurough, and took very good care of me. His staff is exceptional as well. The whole feeling of his office is "you're with caring family". Best bedside manner. I just can't say enough. I finally found a very good doctor!!!!!!!
Very personable, professional and took the time to listen which is rare these days w/ doctors.
Firstly, I have to say that he is a brilliant doctor! It was a bit awkward between us since I'm not a very open person. The wait time was okay with being a new patient. I highly recommend Dr. Gruber!
Very good appointment. Hoping for a good outcome.
I felt comfortable the moment he walked in the door. And I felt great the next day and since.
Great personality and beside manner- I appreciated the time he took to explain my issue- really nice person!
Dr. Gruber is an excellent orthopedic doctor. Listens to all your concerns and is vert polite. I would highly recommend him for anyone who is having knee problems. You will be fully satisfied!
