Dr. Gratch was highly recommended to me by a trusted colleague. After years of putting up with cervical spine shots, physical therapy & chiropractic appointments to alleviate pain & stiffness that was caused by a herniated disc in my neck, I finally decided to get a professional opinion on my situation. After reviewing my MRI, surgery seemed to be the best option. I only wish I had done it sooner and saved myself from years of pain & suffering that were unnecessary!

I am a building contractor and was involved in an auto accident 5 months ago that caused damage to my back to where I was in constant pain, developed foot drop and could not walk correctly. I was using a cane to help me get around safely. As a result of Dr. Gratch's surgery on my spine I am now pain free only 7 weeks after surgery, currently in PT and my walking has improved to where I am back to work light duty and should be at 100% in a few months. He is an excellent surgeon, Great staff.

Dr. Gratch was forthright with information and very approachable with questions and concerns. His bedside manner was excellent and I felt secure in my decision to have surgery. Both he and his staff were wonderful and took excellent care of me throughout my ordeal. I highly recommend Dr. Gratch.

He correctly and quickly diagnosed my problem. He operated immediately and returned feeling to my legs allowing me to walk again. Hw was on time for appointments, took time to explain and acted professionally.
in New Britain, PA |
I had my spine surgery with Dr. Gratch in early May, 2016 and the surgery was a complete success. I am now free of the pains in my legs and am currently walking over a 1/4 mile daily. I felt very confident with Dr. Gratch as he took the time to explain what he planned to do and I am grateful to have had him as my surgeon.
in Huntingdon Valley, PA |
I could not have asked for a better experience. It was easy to make an appointment and I was seen promptly. The staff is friendly and caring. Dr. Gratch gives you all the time you need to explain your issue. I never felt rushed. He also takes the time to fully explain everything. I was very impressed that he personally called to see how I was doing after the surgery. All went well and I am happy with the result.
in Chalfont, PA |
Was highly Recommended by a doctor and friend that he worked on. Bedside manner was impeccable. Very confident prior to surgery because he explained the procedure very thoroughly. Answered any questions we had plus some we didn't think of. We have recommended him to quite a few people since.
in Doylestown, PA |
Dr. Gratch is a seasoned professional with excellent skills. I lived with extreme back pain and sciatica for years. I spent five hours in his surgery center in December of 2015 and walked out on my own. Within eight weeks I was taking two mile walks, pain free. After three months I am fully recovered and have resumed all of my normal activities. I am 66 years old and in better all around health than I can remember for several years. Dr. Gratch is a trustworthy physician.
in Phila pal |
Good experience but he mentioned surgery and I am a coward!
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr Gratch is qualified; as well as comforting. Reassuring @ every phase. I suffered for 20 years with Sciatica; then 2 herniated discs. Felt relief almost immediately; once Dr Gratch performed surgery--which went perfectly.
in Lansdale, PA |
Dr. Gratch not only listens to a patient but hears the patient. He presents the patient's specific problematic area, informs the patient what procedure is to be performed and how it is to be performed. He follows up, suggests PT if needed and meets the patient again to ensure all is ok. He is gracious, affording and the 'best' surgeon in my book. I have undergone two laminectomy's and highly recommend Dr. Gratch.
in Quakertown, PA |
My whole experience with Dr. Gratch was phenomenal. He was very easy to talk to, explained everything totally and that I could understand. I was not afraid to ask questions and he gave advice on everything I asked. My surgery was handled with the most skill and knowledge and I was not afraid to undergo surgery with Dr. Gratch. He respects his work and it showed. Surgery was successful and I am on my way to a full recovery. Bravo to him.
