What People Say About Dr. Gary Gropper, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Gropper performed 2 level ACDF just under 2 weeks ago. Already I have substantially less pain and feel younger/stronger. I am 39 but felt years older from pain/weakness. Before surgery, I was a prisoner in my own body from pain. Everyday tasks like feeding my dogs had become unbearable. Dr. Gropper and his team took excellent care of me. Dr. Gropper even called me to make sure I made it home the evening of my surgery! I haven't felt this good in years. If you have pain, make an appointment with Dr. Gropper and his team today.

I have been a patient of Dr Gripper for years now. My family and I entrust him with my care 200%, second to none. His bedsides manners and ability to empathize with his patients makes the scariest surgeries manageable. He is the best neurosurgeon.

I have never had any problems with this practice or it's doctors! I wish all my doctors are as concerned about my medical conditions as every doctor in this practice. Not only are the doctors concerned about my medical condition but so are their entire staff. What a fabulous medical practice and I would recommend this practice!

Dr Gropper is the best! After seeing 9 doctors in the past year, he had my back fixed almost immediately! I am walking up straight and feel 100% better. He and God have given me a miracle! The office visit was very comforting! I think he has a wonderful staff! Every member of his staff is very friendly and treats everyone as family! I have recommended to all my friends if they need his expertise, that they see him!

Great personality. he does not have the usual deadpan personality most surgeons have. He is friendly, engaging and concerned about you as a person, not just a surgical case.

Dr. Gropper is very professional and caring. He completed a successful ACDF in December. The numbness in my arm was immediately alleviated.

Dr. Gropper is the best. He performed a two level ACDF on me and it could not have gone better. He's an excellent surgeon and extremely good at communicating and ensuring I understand what to expect. Wonderful sense of humor as well.

Dr. Gropper was very professional. He was a bit stiff at the original exam, but warmed up at the next 2 office visits. complement him on sending me to a Neurologist for an examination. The Neurologist discovered I had a rare paralysis caused by my former diabetes combined some sort of auto-immune disorder. after 4 months in bed I have 98% of my leg function back without surgery. If he had not sent me I would have back surgery.

Dr. Gropper is an excellent surgeon. I had a problem with L4 and L5 that I delayed having surgery on. I had some epidurals that did nothing. The doctor doing the epidurals had indicated the injections may not work but Dr. Gropper is an excellent conservative surgeon and I would be in great hands with him doing the surgery. He was right! I had the surgery and I am so glad I did. I haven't had anymore pain. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. Its wonderful to be free of pain!

Dr. Gropper has been great. He was no nonsense in identifying what was the cause of my pain, identifying a treatment and getting me in quickly for surgery. My procedure went well, while I am still on the mend, I am surprised that my scar is barely visible and surprised and the speed of my recovery. He is a wonderful Dr throughout the process, explained everything and took care of short term disability within an acceptable amount of time. Would recommend to anyone who is having cervical fusions.
