in La Porte, IN |
by Michael Bell on Jul 28th, 2016 I went to this doctor for a meniscus repair. The meniscus repair ended up at only a 5% area on outer edge. He also decided to "clean up a little of that cartilage." I've been in pain and a trip around the grocery store is about all I've been able to handle these last two years since the operation. He did lubrication shots (no help, more money for him.) Finally he had me try a voltaren gel and said if it didn't help "I don't know what to tell you." That was

Great doctor. Straight forward and doesn't sugar coat diagnosis. Honest with how he tells you the outcome of your surgery will be. Did 2 shoulder surgeries on me. Will defiantly use him for anything else I may need. Also he has treated my wife and son. Trusted dr. Gruszka fully with my loved ones.
