Dr. Grizzanti is EXCELLENT. However, the office staff is terrible. I always have to call and follow-up on my refills because they don't send them to the pharmacy. I have been waiting close to 2 months to start a new drug therapy because they don't process the paperwork. Also, the wait time to see the doctor has consistently run 1 hour past my appointment time for each visit. I am willing to stand the wait but the incompetency of the office staff in their followup is starting to wear on me.

Well what can I say Dr. Grizzanti and his staff have been a God send. To make a long story short I went to a number of Dr.’s over a period of 2 years and when I finally made it to Dr. Grizz. He diagnosed me and came up with a medical plan. I was miserable and in and out of the Hospital. He and Liz (His Head Nurse) Are like family to me and make me feel like they truly care and I am not just a number. I would recommend him and his staff anytime!!!!

I have been a patient of Dr Grizzanti for the past 11 years. He is extremely knowledgable, caring and a wonderful human being. His staff are equally warm, friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend Dr Grizzanti to anyone seeking respiratory care.

An Awesome, Amazing, and very intuitive Superhero. Dr. Grizzanti dramatically improved the quality of my life (every day living in every possible way), controlled my 30+ years of not-well controlled COPD, got me off of 30+ years of daily steroids,and eliminated many-times-a-year hospitalizations. NO hospitalizations for my lungs since I started seeing the doc in 2001. Such a blessing to be cared for by Dr. Grizzanti and his very caring staff.

Doctor Grizzanti is great. His staff will not return phone calls or schedule an appointment in under 2 weeks so do not get sick! If you ask to have a prescription called in, they will not do it unless the pharmacy calls for you. Also, be prepared to wait an hour or so in the room.
