I worked for Dr. Grisales for 1 yr. Only because Dr.Barsa didn't care for me and he was rude & condescending with bo respect. However Dario and I. Became close... we worked well together! Best Dr. I ever worked for in 10 yrs. He understands all patients are in some kind of pain. He will get the bottom of it for a proper diagnosis & best treatment options. Which include everything from pain management meds like Oxycontin, MS-Contin, Methadone, OxyIR 30mg, Duragesic Fentanyl Patches at proper doses with titration. He will offer Injections and other options that most patients take and they work because he is one of the BEST in the FL top 5 hands down. Seeing Dr. Grisales!He not only the best I overworked for, at times he trusted me so much he would hand me the chart and say Michael...tell me ..what do you think? Really you want my input. After my visit with pt and history. His pain meds needed doubled. He agreed! Pt couldn't afford the Fentanyl pump. Many pts the Injections helped alot!

I come from a family of loyalty, trust and respect. I have seen this doctor since before he opened his own practice. Now, it seems as if every time I go, I speak to a stranger who doesn’t listen to me and acts as if I have never been there before! On the rare occasions I see the actual doctor (not an Advanced Registered Practical Nurse), I hear more about the clinic’s problems — not mine. It has come to a point where I RECORD EVERY VISIT.! I fear the all-cash THC (“medical marijuana”) side-business has taken priority over legitimate patients in need! I am searching for a doctor who is much like the once loyal, trustworthy and respectful Dr. Grisales used to be.
