This was my second opinion, at the first, they would not give me the results and didn't seem to know what they were doing. Dr Grubb explained everything clearly and was straight forward with me

First visit with this Doctor and Staff...Just a wonderful experience. Everyone was so kind and professional. Much better treatment that the last time I had an Echo-cardiogram. The Technician explained every part of the test. She even gave me an explanation of the heart beats. Excellent - beyond my expectations......They were just so kind and friendly...Thank you...

Dr. Grubbs is personable and focused. He gets right to the point and comes up with solutions that work. His office is a pleasure to visit because the women on the staff are easy to deal with and whoever put all that art in the waiting room is a genius. Mary Page Evans did the triptych that makes the office feel like the Museum of Modern Art! It's almost a pleasure to have heart issues!

North East, MD – Feb 08, 2017
Didn't listen to my list of complaints - dismissed me and said absolutely nothing was wrong with me. Said I pretty much had no business being there as he rolled his eyes. 2 or 3 years later I find out I have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. Bad. Went into cardiac arrest to prove it. My experience shouldn't have happened like that. I lost my job, home and boyfriend of 3 years due to my lack of diagnosis. This could have been caught earlier.
