      Dr. Grizzell treated me last minute, I had to wait on insurance and it made my condition worse and when we finally got in to see someone I am so thankful it was Dr. Grizzell. He treated me quickly and went over the procedure with me several times, followed up after, and his office did a great job scheduling appointments in advance as well as squeezing me in between patients when I needed something small done. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Dr. Grizzell really cares about his patients.

      After having major surgery Dr. Grizzell doesn't seem to care to see his patients or do any kind of follow up. Appointments pushed back over 2 weeks. Cancelled once.
