Review for Dr. Grodsky

She is by far the best doctor I have ever seen. She takes the time to truly listen to what is going on. You become more of a partner in your own care than just a patient being told what to do. It's an exciting time that Dr Kyle is back in Eau Claire seeing patients!

Review for Dr. Kyle
