This doctor is a true professional. He has a wonderful bedside manner and truly cares about the well being of his patients. His demeanor is more like the old time doctors...he is absolutely there for each of his patients...a rare find these days!

Dr. Gridley is absolutely THE BEST doctor I have ever had. He is extremely thorough with explaining the "what and why's" of what is going on with you. He makes himself available to his patients at all times. He wants to know all the details of what's going on with his patients. I have the utmost respect for him. I wish that he could be my doctor for everything. You will not be disappointed in selecting him as your surgeon.

Dr Gridley is one of the most professional and personal physicians that I have ever seen. He takes a true personal interest as well as his staff in insuring the best outcome possible. I can't say enough about him his nutritionist, nurse and office staff. I am a new healthy person because of my bariatric surgery. I recommend him daily.

Dr. Gridley is an amazing doctor. When I had my surgery he gave me his cell phone number and told me to call if I need him. Six weeks later I needed him and he was there. He called and texted up till 10:30 pm checking on me. I have never had such an amazing caring doctor like this man. Anyone considering Bariatric Surgery this is the best doctor.

When I 1st met with Dr Gridley I was up front that bariatric surgery is excluded on my insurance & I would likely proceed in Mexico. Surprisingly he still spent over an hour with me discussing what would be best for my specific issues & how to start changing my diet & habits. Then, about 6 wks later I ended up referred to him for a hernia repair. Bc of my history he felt RNY would be best & spent 3-4 wks convincing my insurance of the same. I'm now 5 weeks post op, healthier, lighter, & happier.
