This Dr is all about shots that don't work! If you have an emergency or change to your condition you get to see his assistant she is horrible. He doesn't see you unless he is stabbing you with a needle

Easy to talk to. Listens to you, and never makes you feel rushed. Explains in depth what his suggestions are and does not pressure you. Addressed my pain issues without medication which is exactly what I wanted. Process of having my nerves burned in my back has given me a whole new life without the pain I've been having for 10 years. Wish I found him sooner! Staff is friendly and always willing to accommodate you.

Dr Griver is probably the best doctor I have ever met, he is compassionate, he gives ample time to examination, explaining the diagnosis, the options and to treatment as required. He is very good at what he does. He is always available and will even call back to see how his patients are doing the day after the procedures. He has even called back on weekends. I would never chose any other Doctor.

Dr Griver was recommended by my regular Md for fibromyalgia pain. After following his recommendations, my pain is noticably reduced, and I find myself able to be so much more active. I highly recommend Dr Griver to anyone dealing with chronic pain! His recommendations for me have been spot on and I can't express how grateful I am! Be ready to do your part, and good luck.

I have been with Dr Griver for about 7 years now. I followed him from the practice he was in to his own practice when he left. I know he listens to what I have to say and councils me about medications and treatment.

So impressed with Dr Grover and his abilities, that when he left the practice to open his own office, my husband and I followed the Dr to his new practice. Have been patients of Dr Griver since 2009, and don't want to see another pain management Dr. He will keep trying things until he finds the best solution for his patients.
Outstanding. I was in agonizing pain he addressed it until it was resolved.
