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!

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.

I am a retired physician, so I am pretty critical of physician care. Dr. Grillo takes a lot of time to examine and explain your foot issues. He answers all questions. His office is clean and efficient. I am extremely satisfied with my care. His technician staff is friendly and competent. I recommend him highly.

Dr Grillo and his staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I had this foot /ankle problem since July and after seeing many drs and having different tests and told it was nothing.It wasn't until my endocrinologist Dr Luna sent me to see Dr Grillo in December and he knew right away what was wrong with me . He knew I had a torn achilles tendon even before he sent me for an MRI. He did ever thing he could so I wouldn't have to have surgery, since I am a Type 1 diabetic. I had to wear a boot, then wear special sneakers, rest my foot and it healed beautifully. I am now playing Pickleball again with no problem. Thanks to Dr Grillo and his great staff. I would highly recommend him !!

Initially the toes was treated in the conservatively for several weeks. During this time Dr. Grillo told me that I may need surgery. I did have the surgery and it was basically painless. Dr. Grillo is professional and caring. He is a great educator for the patient to learn about the issues and surgery needed and post operative care. Dr Grillo gets right to the issues without sugar coated information. I like his no nonsense approach. I am very happy to have him as my podiatrist who is a foot surgeon as well.

I went to Dr Grillo in late December, 2020 with extreme heel pain, after no luck with an orthpopedic doc. He spent as much time with me as needed, answering my questions, and trying to find the underlying problem. Not much was happening in the first month to relieve my pain, and I was growing more and more frustrated that I hadn't been able to walk without pain for 4 months. Even tho Dr Grillo could not pinpoint the problem immediately, he never gave up, constantly trying to find the culprit, and talking everything thru with me. Yesterday was a huge breakthru in my pain, as he was possibly able to finally figure it out, perform a small procedure/injection in the right spot, and all I know is that EVERY BIT of my pain went away almost immediately during my visit. His unending quest for the origin of my pain has truly helped in this difficult diagnosis. Now, I just pray we can fix it !!! And his office and staff are outstanding as well - highly recommend Dr Grillo. !

I wanted to take this time to reflect on my experience with Dr. Grillo and his staff. I suffered with a fractured toe for twenty years. I am an avid runner and cyclist. Dr. Grillo was my second opinion and was highly recommended by my neighbor who recovered so well. My first appointment was like a stage performance with Dr. Grillo’s office staff. Everyone had a part and all I could do is applaud them. They were very professional, friendly and experienced. Then I met Dr. Grillo who took his time answering my questions and explaining the pros and cons of surgery. He thoroughly explained my X-ray. I left his office with a feeling of relief and trust. He is extremely passionate about patient care. Expect him to take X-rays, suggest medical boots, medical shoes, compression socks, sneakers, provide his cell phone number for after hours, crack jokes, be serious and straight up. I am doing extremely well. No pain and back to my cycling. It is truly a miracle. Thank Dr. Grillo!

I had an appointment last week with Dr. Grillo. I am a nurse by trade so I know a bit about health issues and how to treat them. I must say I loved my treatment. Dr Grillo was straightforward, honest, funny and kind. He did not push any treatments but instead offered solid suggestions and gave me the opportunity to select what I wanted to do. The staff were also wonderful. You are in good hands when visiting them.
