Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grannell "When I recommend treatment for my patients, I ask myself what would I do if this was my mother or my child, and the answer is usually pretty easy. Because I know I only recommend what I think is best for them. Sometimes the decision to have surgery is hard for patients and their families. I want them to know I understand."

I saw Dr. Grannell for a severely damaged finger. He was very direct and did not hesitate to tell me what we needed to do and scheduled surgery for the next day. I like the fact he did not beat around the bush and took control. My finger is now almost back to normal. Yes I would recommend Dr. Grannell.

I enjoyed being Dr Grannell's patient he's is very friendly. He's says it like it is no sugar coating what's going on with you. So glad I got to meet him.
in Sturgis, MI |
Dr. Grannell is a wonderful doctor. He did carpel tunnel surgery on both hands and I can't be more satisfied with the outcome. He covered the problems, reasons and what to expect from surgery and after. He was thorough with details of things I needed to do for post-surgery care. I would recommend him to anyone needing his specialty. I had heard his bed-side manner was rough, but I did not experience that. He was pleasant with me every time I met with him. Great person and doctor.

Fantastic doctor and staff! They always made sure I knew what needed to be done and what was going on when my daughter broke her arm.
in Sturgis, MI |
Straight forward and frank about the diagnosis and options for treatment and care. Friendly and patient while trying to understand the problem. Good Doctor!

Dr. Grannell performed the surgery to rebuild my knee following my run in with a tree around 2002. His thoroughness, follow up care, and wanting to see me get as good as "new" are why I figure today I can still use my knee with out a prostatic.
in Niles, MI |
he has been our doctor for years. He is honest, straight forward, and tells you your best options. Sometimes is isn't what you want to hear, but he tells you what your best options are for your problem. He doesn't just rush you off to surgery like a lot of other surgeons.
in Edwardsburg, Mi |
Doctor Grannell likes to label chronic pain patients as Drug Addicts . He believes that anyone who uses pain medication so that they can have better quality of life are Drug Addicts . He also says that chronic pain patients should be in methodone clinics for there drug addiction . If he does surgery on you expect to only get pain medication after surgery for two days after the surgery . I'm sure this is fine for a healthy person who has no other health issues .
