I would highly recommend Dr. LaGrand. He explaines everything very throughly and answered all my questions. I needed to have a total hysterectomy and Dr. LaGrand was recommended to me. He does the surgery laparoscopially using only one incision. Using only one incision is much less invasive and I was under anesthetic for a shorter period of time which meant my recovery period was much shorter! I only needed to use narcotics for the first two days. After that, over the counter pain meds worked just fine. I was driving and back to work four days after surgery. I did work part time the first few weeks after surgery. I did get tired more easily and found myself needing to take a nap most days the first two weeks. Overall, I felt really good! I had talked to a few other women who had a hysterectomy done with more incisions and their recovery peroids were 4-5 weeks. So I was really happy with my quick recovery!

My wife and I had twins back in April. We've had four kids through Dr. Lagrand and his office. Sarah was a huge help as well. Dr. Lagrand and his staff are by far the best office in GR and I would say the whole state. Maybe the country! Our first two pregnancies were relatively normal. Sarah delivered both kids and went very smoothly. We absolutely love Sarah. Our last pregnancy was a completely different story. My wife had multiple issues throughout the whole pregnancy. Every issue we had Dr. Lagrand, Sarah, and his staff were right there with us. Talking to us at all hours of the night and seeing us on short notice. My wife made it to 30 weeks and she had to be admitted to the hospital. Both John and Sarah came to visit us multiple times. As the husband, John would intentionally answer my many questions so I would understand. My wife delivered via c section performed by Dr. Lagrand. The procedure went seamlessly. After the procedure, John and Sarah stopped by again t

I saw Dr LaGrand after many years of trying to get other providers to believe that I had a problem. He was patient, kind and LISTENED! I didn’t feel like I was crazy or had to defend why I was there. He did a total hysterectomy for me and only 2 weeks out, I already feel better than I have in years! He explained the healing process and why I need to follow his recommendations in a clear and down to earth manner - always making me comfortable. Amazing doctor and so happy I found him.

Dr. LaGrand did a total laparoscopic hysterectomy on me April 28,2020. At my preop he was very informative and drew pictures so I would understand exactly what would happen and on the day of my surgery he went over it again. At my postop appointment today he again help me with what to expect in the coming weeks and cautioned me about over doing it at this point because I feel pretty good and drew me another picture(quite the artist). I have been pleasantly surprised at how well this has gone and Dr. LaGrand made it so it wasn't as stressful- he has a wonderful bedside manner. I have never had a big surgery like this and I can say I would definitely recommend Dr. LaGrand and Spectrum Butterworth.

Referred to Dr Lagrand by PCP because of prolapsed uterus. Did not know this surgery could be done laproscopically through belly button (only incision) and went home same day! Only on pain pills 3 days and surprised 5 at how amazing I felt. Dr Lagrand is highly skilled and knowledgeable in this procedure. Not many surgeons can do it this way. At my pre/post visits, I felt like I was his only patient and his great sense of humor made me totally relaxed. He thoroughly explained everything and did the post op teaching himself. He clearly has a passion for what he does and puts the patient first. He even held my hand until I fell asleep in surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone because of the great experience I had!! Words to describe him: highly skilled, meticulous, thorough, efficient, and compassionate. I wish I would have had this surgery done sooner by Dr Lagrand!!

I was referred to Dr Lagrand by my Breast Health care physician for a possible tumor on my uterus. After total hysterectomy, at age 66, preformed by Dr Lagrand, he noticed that my vagina was extremely atrophied. Yes, at age 44 I had gone through menopause. I had pain during and after intercourse for over 20 years attributed to being post menopausal. I have had the Mona Lisa procedure and it works! I'm extremely happy that I had this treatment. There is no more pain and my husband and I have a great sex life once again!! Thank you Dr LaGrand

I was referred to dr LaGrand by my PCP due to large Fibromas in uterus. He was very nice to my husband and myself, explaining and making sure we understood everything. I had minimally invasive radical hysterectomy. Took my uterus out through small incision in belly button. It was about 4or 5 times the size of a normal uterus. Two weeks later I feel.very good. Still healing of course;). Loved the attention and dedication that Dr John LaGrand gave to my case. He is an amazing surgeon, and a very kind and dedicated healthcare provider. I highly recommend his services. Great professional and kind human being.

I went through about 15 years of undiagnosed and untreated pain, and had multiple doctors (and OBGYNs) literally shrug at my symptoms. It was such a relief to see Dr. LaGrand. He was the only one to validate my experience, and took the time to make sure I understood all of what could be going on. He was such a partner in making sure that I was comfortable with every step, up to and including a total hysterectomy and bilateral oopherectomy for endometriosis (turned out to be significant adenomyosis). I'm now incredibly pain-free, and there are no marks on my belly - he only made an incision inside my belly button, and it looks so normal I can still wear bikinis! I did not know you could get an organ out of my abdomen with just one incision. Plus, bonus, after 2 kids and nearing 40, I can work out again without any bladder leakage.

Wonderful, caring Dr. As a post menopausal woman I had a few concerns with bleeding , hot flashes, itching and uncomfortable sex. Dr. LaGrand explained that as you age , body parts age also. Very easy to understand and also talked to my husband. I had the Mona Lisa laser treatment done. What a difference in our sex life and itching went away. Yay. Took care of hot flashes with hormonal patch and IUD. Yes, IUD at 72. Works. Thanks Dr. Lagrand

Dr. LaGrand is the most kind & compassionate OB-GYN’s I have ever been to & his skill is unmatched. I had a single incision laparoscopic hysterectomy & bladder lift at age 36 due to uterine prolapse. He spent so much time with me and my husband answering all of our questions and held my hand as I went into surgery. His genuine care and concern for me as a patient for the last 10 years is why I highly recommend him. He is truly the best!

Dr. LaGrand is a kind, compassionate and highly trained specialist. His time and care before, during and after surgery are what make him stand out from the rest. Dr. LaGrand performed a minimally invasive complete Hysterectomy through the belly button with such care that I virtually have no scarring and had very little pain. He explained the procedure in simple terms with some humor spread in. I would recommend him to any one who is looking for a specialist while going though menopause.

Absolutely worst OB I’ve ever been to. Not only did Dr. LaGrand make me cry at my first apt, he belittled my midwife and tried to scare me that I was “going to end up with a child who would need care for the rest of their lives” I had a ultrasound a few weeks later, that I never got results for (it’s been a month now) AND they contacted my private midwife to tell HER they were dropping me as a patient, and to not plan on going to my apt/ultrasound the next day. I was told by John that even if I

I had multiple surgeries with Dr. LaGrand and he was one of the best doctors I have had. He had wonderful bedside manner and helped to put any of my fears at ease. He also spent as much time as I needed at an appointment explaining things and understanding my thoughts and fears. He is the only doctor in the area I know of to do certain procedures mainly thru the belly button. His staff was wonderful to work with.

Dr. LaGrand is by far the best doctor I have been to. He loves what he does and it shows. His level of skill, care and teaching are unparalleled. He even throws in some humor to help me stay at ease. My hysterectomy went flawlessly, and I appreciate the education and care every step of the way. Dr. LaGrand came recommended to me and I will continue to recommend him to others.

My purpose in writing this, is to let you know that Dr. John LaGrand is an excellent and experienced surgeon. Dr. LaGrand preformed my minimally invasive complete hysterectomy at the age of 65, due to prolapse. I was filled with apprehension about the procedure, until my consultation. He explained my situation and exactly what needed to be done. My surgery went well, with minimal pain. My regret, is that I waited so long. I wanted a better quality of life and Dr LaGrand gave me that- don’t wait!

He makes everything very clear and easy to understand, and is very thorough. He makes you feel very valued as a person, and not just like "another patient". He is very attentive to your needs and makes himself available should anything come up that needs immediate attention. I would HIGHLY recommend him!
