      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Grzeszak says...

      I graduated from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1976. After I finished my internship in 1977, I made the commitment to serve patients and their families, and I have had a family practice in the Alger Heights neighborhood for 30 years.

      I have many patients who have been with me for more than 20 years, including some families whom I have had the privilege of caring for over 3, 4 and 5 generations. I respect and value my patients, as they have trusted me with their health and the health of their families.

      I believe continuity is important to providing the best patient care. My nurse has been with me for 29 years, my medical assistant over 16 years and my receptionist for more than 15 years. Together we work with patients to improve their health and to keep them well.

      Dr. Grzeszak's Care Philosophy

      I provide thorough yearly physicals and am persistent when it comes to determining a diagnosis to any healthcare concerns. I find that carefully listening to the patient’s description of their issues often helps in making the correct diagnosis. If I cannot determine what is affecting a patient, I have access to a whole network of specialists whom I know and trust to refer the patient to – that is what a patient-centered medical home is all about.

      With the help of my office staff, I provide excellent care to my patients with diabetes, achieving very good scores on the diabetic registry.

      As part of the care I provide to my patients, I also offer osteopathic manipulative therapy, using my hands and gentle stretching, pressure and resistance to help diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury.

      As a family medicine physician, I perform a variety of primary care services, such as yearly physicals, diabetes care and osteopathic manipulative therapy. We also provide lab draws for our patients.
