I have been going to Dr. G for about 10 years and I think he is absolutely wonderful. I have chronic bronchitis and do not always have a need to go to the office. He is very understanding and will prescribe what I need and never over prescribes. I am now living in Nashville and wish I could have brought him with me. I do agree that Marlene was a sweetheart and his new nurse not so much. How ever the new staff since moving to the Ooltewah office is hands down the best office staff.....ever!

Dr. Grotefendt listens to his patients and takes their opinions into consideration.

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.
