She is the sweetest woman! Finally found a doctor i love!
Appt went smoothly. Appreciated the no-nonsense approach to explaining her analysis of my symptoms. Good rapport established early and a positive experience overall.
They have no digital system of record keeping/updating patients - way too old school for me. Won't be going back. Also, very long wait.
Dr Greenier is great. You can tell that she is very knowledgeable, but is also able to explain things to you in common language. I think I just found a new primary doc
My appointment with Elise Grenier was quick, pleasant and responsive. Dr. Grenier was kind and friendly and obviously had a good rapport with other patients in the waiting room and staff. I've been looking for a new doctor for awhile and am happy to have found her! Thank you!
Pros: - On premises lab - Easy to schedule - Convenient location Cons: - Dated office. - Office machines Windows XP (insecure; 2016) - Uncomfortable chairs and cramped examination room - Extensive delay in appointment without updates (inattentive staff) - Doctor did not address concerns thoroughly - Poor integration with Zocdoc platform
It was the first time I was seeing her and she was really nice ! Seems like it was my doctor forever. I will definitely go see her again and I recommend that you do the same ;) !
She was quick to figure I had an allergic reaction and made me instantly feel as ease.
The doctor was nice but this office is really scammy and makes me question what she was involved in. Legitimately the worst clinic office have been to. They were late about 40 mins. They bill for everything including asking you about how you are and then charge you for it. My blue cross blue shield even said my doctor was charging every single code possible and thankfully my insurance was able to cover most of it. They also try to get you to come in to get your lab results which most insurance don't cover unless you have something wrong with you. As a patient I really should be entitled to see my results. I rather not go get my results from normal blood work as who knows what other bills will come thru. The billing department here was not helpful at all and they don't really remind you about appointments. I 100% do not recommend going to this doctor's office. Read everything you sign and make sure your insurance is covering it since they will try to run random exams on you that they probably know are not covered if you just go in for a preventative care appointment. I think they just invoice and harass you to the point you just pay (which I did) since it's so complicated and useless to get them to fix anything. I feel bad for my insurance company.
Dr. Elise is friendly and has good bedside manner.
She's really sweet and I recommend
I saw Dr. Grenier for my annual physical. It's normally difficult to get these appointments because a lot of the other offices get booked up weeks in advance. When I got to the waiting room, there were 5 other people waiting. It's difficult enough to make time for health check-ups during work hours so I was hoping to be seen on time. This wasn't the case because there was a back log and I waited 1.5 hours until I was seen, making me extremely late for work. I gave her the benefit of the doubt, but when I had my follow-up appointment to go over lab results, the wait was over an hour again so this is just how this office works. Either overbooking or taking too many walk-ins. The other issue with the visit was that Dr. Grenier asked me if I had any pain/problems to address. When I told her I did, she billed me for my annual physical as well as a regular office visit. I don't know if this is the normal process, but I felt like she was trying to swindle me. The last problem I had, which was very unprofessional was that she went over the lab results with me after my physical (2nd appointment) and told me I was low in iron. I asked her what food items I should be eating more to increase my iron level and she told me to Google it. Why would I waste +2 hrs out of work and pay money to have someone tell me to Google this information if she's the expert.
Dr. Grenier is wonderful. She addressed my issues and didn't dismiss my symptoms as other doctors have done before. I genuinely felt like she cared about what was going on with my health and it made me feel great. I haven't walked out of an appointment and felt that way in a really long time. If you are lucky enough to get an appointment with her, you should do it.
Definitely recommend! Came in for a routine check up and she did not hesitate to run tests when I had some questionable symptoms. First time a doctor actually ran tests when there were some red flags with my health.
Dr. Greiner was very personable and easy to talk to. Parts of the physical, including the lab work, seemed very thorough. There were times where I wish she spent more time discussing my history or specific concerns. Compared to doctors I've had previously, I did not feel like she asked a lot of specific follow-up questions. As part of the physical, they take blood at the office, and ask you to come back a week later to discuss the results. I was a little dissapointed that I needed to take time off work to come back for a mid-day appointment, especially since it was a very brief appointment since my results were all normal. I'm not sure why I needed to come in. During my follow-up appointment, I was also very thrown off that the office had done their research on additional shots/vaccinations that my insurance covers. I did mention I had travelled years ago, but they said I have great insurance and should consider getting some additional, seemingly rare, vaccinations. I could be way off - perhaps they were just doing their homework - but I felt like they did more research on what additional vaccinations my insurance would cover than research for the existing conditions I came in to discuss. I left not feeling very good about that entire situation.
Best doctor ever. I've never known a doctor to spend so much time talking deeply with me. She genuinely cares. Highly recommended <3
She is open and warm and listened to all my concerns.
She is very nice and communicative. Explained every aspect of the visit and made sure I understood the process. Office is small and a bit cramped but that's SF for you.
Dr. Grenier was very friendly, approachable, and detail-oriented. She made me feel very comfortable to disclose sensitive information and offered advices and fair recommendations. While I had to wait a little while, I was also late myself which may had caused the issue in the first place. Overall, great experience!
It is a busy office, but I felt like I was given the attention that I asked for. I will be returning.
She was an attentive physician. She asks the right questions and gives you the opportunity to ask questions in return.
Basic check of sore throat that Dr Grenier helped work through. Didn't need extra medication than over the counter allergy meds. She listened and we had a great interaction.
Excellent service and same day appointment available which was so helpful.
She was very understanding and put me at ease very quickly. She had to be one of the best doctors I have seen in a long long time. Thank you!
She was so great! Very friendly and to the point. Was also very
Very quick. Very personable. Enjoyed it.
Dr, Grenier was super easy to talk to and made me feel at ease! I was seen quickly and she made the process hassle free. I have peace of mind thanks to Dr. Grenier!
She is great!
Insisted on various tests without explanation or need. Very unhappy with experience. Facilities are old and appear unclean.
My wait time was a little long (~45 mins), but other than that it was a great experience. Dr Grenier was warm and personable and she treated me quickly. Would definitely go back
