It turned out Dr. Grossman is not in my network. However, he saw me anyway. I perviously went to Dr. Tyorkin for a fractured elbow. Dr. Tyorkin barely saw me for a minute and made a couple of referrals. I wasgiven a brace without any instructions. Dr. Grossman sat with me, explained my fractured and what to expect. The differences between the two doctors were night and day. Dr. Grossman, knowing that he wasnt getting paid for my visit, took his time during my visit and almost made me want to go out of network to keep him as my othropedic.

Dr. Grossman was polite but did not show any concern about how I felt. He sent me to do a xray next door to his office and instead of the technician telling to take off my shirt because it had rymstoneson it he told me to leave it on and proceeded with the exam. When viewing the x-rays with Dr. Grossman all you seen was the rymstones on the x-rays and Dr. Grossman just laughed and said it's your shirt and told me he can't help me and referred me to a pain management doctor. What a waste of time and money.

Very kind and genuine concern for his patients. Dr. Grossman performed spine surgery on my lower spine removing a disc and inserting a cage in it's place. My pain prior to surgery has been corrected and I am recovering nicely. Ihighly recommend Dr. Seth Grossman to anyone suffering with back pain and in need of surgery.

The compassion and care is unbelievable. His staff is friendly kind Juliana that is my girl thanks for all your help. I would recommend him to anyone any day.

I went in on December 24th for a bad disc herniation which I can barely walk. I didn't have a recent copy of an MRI so he sent me to go get on done right away and saw me as soonas I was finished. Coming back from the MRI screening the same day, I was shown exactly where the problem was. He proposed two options, both surgical. I went with one of them called a Microdiscectomy. Being that I couldn't even walk, I was admitted to the ER 4 days later on the 28th and the 29th I had the surgery. I have never felt so relieved from my back pain and I highly recommend this surgery and also Dr. Grossman for anyone who has severe back pain.
