Patient Comments (7)

Dr. Grewe is an excellent neurosurgeon and a top Legacy trauma doc. His explanations were thorough and he took time to answer all questions. He has a reputation for being conservative with regard to procedures so I trust that he won't perform surgery unless it's really needed.
