Dr. Grzeszak's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Grzeszak "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grzeszak "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."
