I needed to have an emergency gallbladder removal. Megan was prompt and caring. After the surgery she checked in on me, listened to my concerns, and kept us informed. Never felt in the dark. I can't not recommend her highly enough.

Dr. Grunander is an excellent doctor, excellent bedside manner. She really listens, puts you at ease and cares about her patients. I would give her 5 stars plus five more - she's the best of the best. I highly recommend her to anyone without reservation--she knows what she is doing!! My surgery went very well and healed without leaving a big ugly scar--it is impossible to see now--only a top surgeon would be that careful to care about the after surgery appearance. Thank you doctor!

If you need a surgeon, Dr. Grunander is who you want!!!! She is the PRIME example of what a Dr. should be - listens, explains with detail, not rushed or bothered. She even took time out of her busy, surgery day, to see me between patients, to assure me that surgery was healing properly, and what to do about excess fluid. Her nurse Jennifer is -- awesome -- she answers when you call or calls you right back, and gives great advice, for concerns, doesn't brush you off.
