Everybody there is very friendly. They create a comfortable environment and homey feel. I never have to wait long to get into a room or to see Dr. Grillo. Dr. Grillo is a very straight forward, no nonsense doctor. I appreciate this because he will not beat around the bush or sugar coat things. He was able to have a good idea of what was going on before any tests and when the tests came back they just confirmed his original diagnosis. He was able to explain things in a manner that it is eas

I'd first want anyone who reads my review to know that Dr. Joseph Grillo and his wonderful staff was very professional, caring, and understanding. Even though I didnt have any insurance I was treated the same way as if i did. My Wife finding Dr. Grillo was the best find ever, because what he and his staff did for me in the one office visit. Dr. Grillo truly helped me any so many ways and what he done for me is worth a visit. Dr. Grillo is very passionate about helping others. James L, Cape Coral

Dr. Grillo is an excellent podiatrist! On my very first visit I knew I had chosen the best physician ever. After being examined by Dr. Grillo and had my foot X-rayed, I realized I had the worst possible gout. I was in excruciating pain. After he administered a cortisone shot, I felt so much better. Within another week, I was back in his office with gout in my other foot. Again in pain, he got me in that same day, right away. His staff, yes, is also so amazing and so helpful!

He is very caring and considerate of the patients overall health. I felt involved in all facets of my care. He started with the most conservative therapy and is working with me to resolve my issue.

I recommend Dr. Grillo without reservation. Dr. Grillo is truly a caring physician. He worked with me to avoid any surgeries and obtain the best outcome. He is clearly knowledgeable and experienced. He immediately knew what was wrong after other doctors only guessed. Multiple factors showed me that Dr. Grillo is in this business for the right reasons.

Friendly, efficient staff. Dr Grillo was direct, honest and didn't prescribe over the top treatment. I was seen at my appointment time. Thank you.

I had an issue come up with my ankle that needed attention and my current podiatrist was out of town. His office staff (not nurse) didn't follow through in giving me an alternate in a timely manner. I found Dr. Grillo on line and I was able to get in the next day in the morning. His nurse Janet, the ladies in the front and Dr. Grillo were efficient, helpful, friendly, and professional. I really did like my previous podiatrist, but I've now moved on to Dr. Grillo for all my future foot issues.

When I moving to the Southwest Florida area in 2003, I was in need a not a good Podiatrist but a GREAT Podiatrist. My Dr. from RI told me about Dr. Grillo as they had gone to Medical School together. I suffer from Scleroderma and Raynaud's diseases. Both do terrible things on your feet. On my first visit with Dr. Grillo in 2003, I knew would be in excellent hands...he understands my issues and treats me with the highest standards of care and compassion. His entire staff are amazing!!!

Dr. Grillo and his staff are wonderful. I have a problem with my foot and they were able to get me in the day after I called. The entire staff in his office are so nice and friendly. Dr. Grillo examined my foot, he was pretty sure what was wrong, but wanted to take xrays. The xrays confirmed what he thought was the issue. I left with a boot and a prescription for therapy. Dr. Grillo is trying to avoid having to perform surgery. Also gave me written information describing my condition.

From the moment a patient walks into Dr. Grillo's office, both he and his staff provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. My husband and I have been patients for many years and yet every time we return we continue to be impressed with the professionalism and competency that we encounter. Dr. Grillo always explains procedures thoroughly and answers all questions. He always does a comprehensive examination. The facility is meticulously clean and has state-of-art equipment. Exceeds expectations!

Dr. Grillo is outstanding! I appreciate his straightforward, brutally honest attitude, and I'm one of those patients who need that. He is very informative and thorough, and very concerned for his patient's well being. I would recommend him highly and I couldn't have picked a better doc to help me.

I recently brought my mom here after she hurt her foot. The staff and the Doctor were all very kind, extremely patient, and took their time with her. She didn’t feel rushed at all, she felt valued as a patient and she walked out feeling comfortable about treatment. They also got her in for a next day appointment, which was a huge deal.

When my regular podiatrist was booked 2 weeks out and unable to see me for a painful foot condition, Dr. Grillo made time for me. His office staff felt like family from the first phone call and that feeling continued throughout my office visit. Dr. Grillo was professional and to-the-point, but compassionate in his manner. I never felt rushed and I felt confident in his diagnosis. I also appreciate that he is beginning with the most conservative treatment and approach, yet determined to fix it.
