Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Dr Gross is a skilled surgeon- I feel lucky to have found him and highly recommend him. My surgery was perfect and his follow up was thorough. Needing a surgeon is obviously a stressful time in anyone's life. Dr Gross's staff was so helpful by getting me in quickly and being so receptive and compassionate. Dr Gross exudes confidence and professionalism - both eased my mind from the first visit. If I or anyone in my family ever needs a surgeon, Dr Gross would be our first choice. Feeling Grateful :)

I have been to Dr. Gross a couple of times and found him to be very professional and thorough. I was amazed when Dr. Gross came in on his day off to remove a painful cyst from my daughter - hard to find that type of dedication, caring and professionalism anywhere nowadays.

Dr. Gross is a professional and skill surgeon. I chose him because of his ability to tell me what to expect about the surgery while maintaining my humanity and leaving me with a calm confidence about having him perform the procedure. The outcome was perfect.

Dr. Gross' diligence may have saved my life. The results of both a mammogram and sonogram indicated my palpable masses were benign. Dr. Gross ordered an MRI, just to be sure. The MRI results indicated the masses were suspicious. So, Dr. Gross did a biopsy, right away right there in his office, and the results of that confirmed definitively the masses were cancerous. A less diligent doctor may have stopped at the mammogram/sonogram results and advised waiting 6-12 months for the next mammogram.

His office I'd clean, beautiful and a wonderful staff. Dr. Gross is professional and does beautiful work. He surgically removed a large melanoma and stitched it up leaving a clean beautiful scar. I go to him every 3 month after the surgery. He is extremely detailed and really cares.
