Much admiration and respect for Dr. Grasso along with everyone on his office staff. My problems are explained. Solutions are provided along with seeing it all on a large monitor screen in his office. Located on the patient side of the desk, it makes the images easy to see. Dr. Grasso is extremely knowledgeable and is one of the leading Doctors in the country in his field. Instead of the office calling with results of biopsies, the patient is instructed to call the office for results.

This was the first colonoscopy where I was provided pictures and thoroughly examined. Dr. Grasso took the time to talk to me and listen to my concerns. In addition, his staff is very caring and professional with patients.
in Bel Air, MD |
excellent facility, staff, and the complete information dr. grosso gave me.
Baltimore, MD |
As an educator, I'm held accountable for my actions. Response to communication from parents is held to a 24 hour window. I have patiently waited for over a month for someone to remedy a specific situation with me, related to a scheduled colonoscopy with Dr. Grasso that was confirmed by the hospital and that I showed up over an hour early for. I was told by the hospital (after fasting and taking all laxatives) that Dr. Grasso had cancelled the procedure. No one from the office called to tell me
Waited exactly an hour without explanation. Doctor seemed distract. He asked me if I had a symptom three times in my short visit, even after it was the reason I said I was there. He scheduled me for serious tests without explanation.
Ellicott City, MD |
Dr. Grasso is excellent at what he does and he has become an important part of maintaining my health and managing dysplasia. He also did my colonoscopy. Over time he has developed a rapport with me that I appreciate - informative, courteous, to the point, and efficient. His waiting time is always very long but I build that in because he's the best there is, and my health is important enough.
Excellent service. Proffesional staff. Great facilities.
Churchville, MD |
I have been a patient for 7 years and Dr. Grasso has performed surgery for Diverticulitis. He has always been very professional to the point of visiting me in the hospital after surgery.
in Glenwood, MD |
I had a hemorrhoidectomy recently and my experience was horrible. Dr. Grasso didn?t prepare me for the pain in my pre-procedures consult, he didn?t use the proper amount of local anesthesia during the procedure so I felt every cut and stitch and post op he wouldn?t change my pain medication when it made me sick to my stomach. He is quite possibly the worst physician I have ever been exposed to. I work in the medical field and have been exposed to hundreds of doctors and he is by far the worst
