    Dr. Grotefendt listens to his patients and takes their opinions into consideration.
    in Tennessee |
    Dr G himself is an adequate physician. When my visits to Dr G initially started he and his staff were very attentive to my needs and very respectable. After my first year as a patient things changed and so did the staff. His previous nurse Miss Merlene was fabulous but his new nurse nor the good Dr. will even return phone calls anymore. I have recommended many people to Dr. G in the past but will no longer do that.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
