Dr. Gruber is a great guy! I met with Dr. Gruber last Friday and he took the time to review my MRI studies and explain in words I could understand what was going on in my neck. Finally after all of these years in pain and convincing insurance I needed an MRI of my neck, Dr. Gruber explained why I need to have surgery on my neck. I completely trust Dr. Gruber and I look forward to having surgery on my neck! Thanks Dr. Gruber for listening to me and ordering another MRI!

I tried to schedule an appointment with Doctor Gruber but his female employee said he wouldn't see me because I used to go to another neurosurgeon. I explained that my former doctor no longer accepts my insurance and that I cannot afford to pay the out of pocket out of network costs - Doctor Gruber is in my network. She stated that he wouldn't see me as I had started with someone else! I have never heard of such a thing anywhere and his Accepts New Patients ad doesn't say with conditions!!!!

Dr. Gruber and his staff are fantastic. He is very caring and understanding. He took his time explaining everything and listened to my concerns and answered all my questions without hesitation. I am very greatful to him for all he did for me. I am pain free for the first time in many years.
