Terrible customer service and follow up. Doctor and assistant do not provide discharge instructions and patients end up in the ER fue to their negligence.

Good doctor, TERRIBLE OFFICE STAFF. I dealt with NORMA to confirm insurance coverage (Blue Cross of CA) for a $25,000 surgical procedure Dr Grimaldi had recommended. Called her 2-3 times per week for 4 weeks. No calls were ever returned. I emailed. No emails were ever returned. Finally after 4 weeks of waiting I went to another Urologist who verified my insurance coverage in 2 days. Again, Dr Grimaldi may be very good at his practice, but the OFFICE STAFF JUST DOESN'T CARE.

This is the worst doctor I have seen in my life, not that I seen him much. of 5 times I consulted this doctor only once I was able to see him, most of the time it is his PA Sobing who does the consulting or the girls who perform procedures (I wonder if they have the credentials). After a failed procedure done by one of the girls I am worst, I am seeing another urologist and I am thinking of filing a grievence against this "doctor. I wonder if the good reviews are real or just from his own people

i have seen this urologist 5 times and I had only seen Dr Grimaldi once, every time I see his PA Noel Sobing. I had a procedure done in my prostate and not even that time the Dr bother to enter the room and check it. It was done by one of his girl assistants ( I wonder if they are authorized by the State to do this procedures) the results of this procedure is not good, now I am worse then I was when I first started seen this "doctor". I am changing to another urologist.
