Thank you for everything!

I have seen Dr. G six time preparing for Bariatric surgery. He explained the procedure the first time and had asked me if I have any questions each time. He is very personable and has a cute sense of humor. The nutritionist recommends him highly. This is pretty major surgery and I am confident putting my faith in him.
Punta Gorda, FL |
There is no likelihood of referring anyone to this doctor. My routine appendectomy turned into a nightmare as he allowed leakage of the worst bacteria into my body. I developed a cyst, lost 12 inches of my small intestine and days of 18 agonizing in the hospital plus home health care for 8 days. I also lost 18 pounds to no eating anything for 15 days. He was a pompous jerk when asked questions and came to my room to scream at us for requesting treatment for my 15 day Illeius, colon paralysis
Port Charlotte, FL |
I was very pleased with my overall experience. I felt valued as a patient.

Dr. A Gruneiro was the surgeon who did a routine appendectomy on me January 5, 2017. My appendix was inflamed but not ruptured. It should have been routine. The technique must have been flawed since it resulted in an abscess growing with 200ml of nasty germ bacteria by the time it was discovered 5days later. Missed in the first scan. Also, I developed Ileus which is a paralysis of the intestines. I could not have a bowel movement for 10 days . He refused to treat it. He is arrogant and rude
in Punta Gorda, FL |
This man is the epitome of the arrogant surgeon. He is brusque, non-responsive to patient questions and seems to think that his is the only opinion that counts. He was three hours late to surgery and provided no explanation to anyone for his tardiness. In spite of being told that I would not undergo major surgery locally, he attempted to schedule a complex procedure for the day after my laparoscopy (full open surgery). I subsequently have found that there are safer, less painful options. Avoid.

Wow, I am thoroughly impressed by Dr. Gruneiro's practice! He has an excellent bedside manner and takes time to explain things in detail. Extremely attentive and friendly staff. Truly a pleasure to be a patient in his practice.
in Port Charlotte, FL |
My husband had a pre-cancerous spot removed off his chest by Dr. Gruneiro. He did an excellent job! I felt very comfortable with him and his staff. We called for an appointment on Monday, was in the office on Tuesday, and my husband had his procedure on Wednesday of the same week. I have already recommended Dr. Gruneiro to many of my friends.
Performed my Nissen Provedure. Very good surgeon. Especially for Port Charlotte.
in Port Charlotte, FL |
This butcher opened my wife with abdominal surgeries 4 times starting Oct. 30th, 2013. After 4th he left her open, came to me and said I can't do it must send her to Tampa where she was evaluated and couldn't be helped. She died May 18, 2014. This man won't tell you anything. He yells at you and says she can do anything she wants to. SHE WANTED TO LIVE. After 4 attorneys and another medical opinion, I'm dropping her case. The legal and medical groups stick together.
