What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Grier, MD

I have my own story to share along with others in my family who have had horrible experiences. My husband has had bowel issues his whole life and went to see Dr Grier in 2016. Dr Grier basically made him feel foolish for being there and told my husband that it is “all in his head and his anxiety about bowel issues is causing IBS”. For a specialist, his diagnosis was as pathetic and my husband would have received better advice from a walk-in clinic. My grandmother saw him for years and she was in the ER for a possible bowel obstruction she went to him with the ER results and he told her sarcastically to “calm down- your not going to die”. Little did he know she passed away less than 12 months later (December 2018) from colon cancer that aggressively spread to her liver and through-out her body. He was the one who performed her colonoscopy over the years, yet his arrogance would lead you to believe he couldn’t have possibly made a mistake and missed something!

I have been seeing Dr. Grier for years and I would never change doctors. He is caring, kind and has a wonderful bedside manner. He is also informative, educational and proactive in my care. I know that he cares about treatment and always makes sure I know exactly what is going on with my treatment. Also, his staff is friendly and very helpful.
