What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Grosslight, MD

Dr. Grosslight and Ms. Sykes began treating me for pain after a leaving a Pain group that I felt treated me as an afterthought rather than as a patient. It has been my experience that they both will listen to my concerns and are deeply committed to helping reduce my everyday pain level. I feel respected as a patient and I highly recommend them and their staff to become your caregiver for treating chronic pain problems.

Staff rarely explains anything to you. They’ll tell you one thing on your first visit, then it’s a totally different story at the next visit. Dr. Grosslight ended up causing a lot more damage to my back after a procedure and is too incompetent to be able to fix it. And as others say, this is a pricey place, so make sure you have lots of money and time to spend here.

I was not impressed w this Dr. Their office is very rigid. I went for back pain and he began treatments of shot to back area nerve to see if he should ablate a nerve with no x-ray ever taken! I changed doctors after 3 visits due to lack of confidence in him!

Leslie and Dr. Grosslight are really Batman and Robin! Instead of Crime, they fight pain. Best part is they actually take the time to listen to you!! You are not just a number to them!

I am sad I can no longer see DR. Grosslight, he's a good man who tried to help me. Be warned, the rates charged are stout even after insurance pays. After 6 months of treatment I can't say I am one bit better than walking in the door the first time. If you have a pocket full of $ you are in business.

Dr. Grosslight has just begun to see me for possible hip issues. I found him to be very kind and a patient listener. He’s methodical with diagnosing issues and overall a genuine person. I am looking forward to continuing patient care from him.

I've been in Dr. Grosslight's practice for over three years now, although I have switched to his PA. I have an injury to cartilage which has no means to heal itself and after about two years of seeing him for my chronic pain he suggested that I should try to wean off of the medicines because "It should have healed on it's own by now". I asked for a second opinion and started seeing his PA Leslie and she is the best provider I could have ever asked for!

I have been a patient for 2 years. My last attempt to make an appointment was a nightmare. I was told he had an opening that afternoon so I drove from Lexington to West Columbia. When I got there I was told I had to see the P.A. I did not drive all that way to see someone I've never seen. Since then I have tried twice to make an appt and the office manager has blocked me from APPTS. Today she was very rude to me and told me that this is policy. This treatment doesn't sound like the Dr.G I know

VERY shocked to see any bad reviews. Dr. Grosslight and Leslie are by far the best doctors I've ever have seen for pain management. They are thorough, compassionate, and caring. I've recently moved 2 states away and am going through hell trying to find a Dr"s office even remotely close :-(

Thought he was good to begin with. Boy was I wrong. Stopped giving my back injections. Said I had to wait half a year. Disregarded my shoulder pain. Then gave me radio frequency in my spine. The results gave me problems. The staff started changing, then they brought me in one day after an hours drive and told me I wasn't supposed to be there. Told the doctors pa that I wanted a second opinion, then she became combative and unruly. Even broke my next at appointment, in case I changed my mind.
