Arrogant & rude
When Dr started lecturing me about where I bought my shoes that he felt caused my problem and I responded, he pulled down his mask and told me that “if I wouldn’t listen to him I should leave his office”. He treated me with such complete lack of professionalism, such arrogance and rudeness, I will never return to his practice and will advise others to not go to him for “care”.

Honesty, honestly!
Somehow I got crosswise with the doctor about what I wanted and what he was willing to do. I got a long patronizing lecture on my honesty vs. HIS honesty which I didn't appreciate. This afternoon I ran across Diogenes and sent him to Dr. Grillo's address.

My experience with Dr Grillo and his entire staff was exceptional. I had foot pain for a long time and after taking X-rays Dr Grillo explained the problem and provided me with options. I had out patient surgery and follow up. The Dr and his staff are professional and caring. Dr Grillo has great credentials and seeing him was the best choice I could have made.

Dr. Grillo was honest, real, compassionate & funny. He encouraged me to lose weight by sharing his struggle with being overweight at times in his life, rather than making me feel bad. He had great, non-invasive solutions to my foot problems. Looking forward to taking his advice and attending my follow-up visit.

This is one of the best physicians I have ever been to see. Dr. Grillo is passionate about his field of expertise and truly cares about his patients. I appreciate his honesty and frankness. So many medical professionals avoid telling patients the truth about their medical condition and that helps no one. His staff are so friendly, nice and helpful. I highly recommend anyone with foot problems to go see Dr. Grillo. I immediately went out and purchased the shoes and socks he recommended for me and my feet already feel better. He truly wants his patients to avoid surgery, if possible. I wish there were more caring, knowledgeable physicians like him. I am blessed to have found him.

Too often, people are quick with their criticism, and slow with their compliments about a service or product. In catching up, I want to extend an overdue appreciation to Dr. Joseph Grillo. Dr. Grillo takes a personal interest in getting to know his patients, and explaining a route to his assistance to his patients. He is a good listener, displays attention to detail, is conscientious, and has a high energy level. Where there is a sense of urgency, he explains this to his patient. His entire office staff is also outstanding. Dr. Grillo sets the tone. During my last visit, I had the opportunity to also be initially seen by Melody. She has been with Dr. Grillo for 29-30 years, and was exceptional for my prep with Dr.Grillo. Dr. Grillo and Office Staff are the best.

Dr. Grillo and staff are professional, knowledgeable, and caring. The office is clean and I never waited longer than 5 minutes. My case was taken seriously with empathy along with a conservative approach both medically and financially. I cannot say enough great things about my experience under the circumstances. And I can honestly say that I’m going to miss seeing them regularly now that I am healed! So thank you all so much!

It has been awhile since I have seen Dr Grillo. I called to make an appointment and let’s just say after 7 minutes on the phone and still nothing set up, I decided to ask why this was taking so long, after being put on hold 3 times. She rudely told me she had other patients and that he was going on vacation. I cannot support a business that is rude for asking a simple question.

My first and only appointment with this doctor was a terrible experience. I should have read the poor reviews. He was rude, arrogant, and has absolutely no "bedside manner." He became agitated when I questioned his treatment suggestions. When it became apparent this egotistical "Dr" was a bad choice, I had to tell him what I thought of his attitude and got up to leave. He literally screamed at me with vulgar expletives. I write this review for the benefit of others who are also looking for a podiatrist. Stay away from this one.
