My wife has been going to Dr. Gremillion for many years now, and while she likes him as a doctor, his office staff, regardless of how many new people they get, is always rude, unprofessional, and careless. They refuse to admit if/when they make a mistake, and we have had several instances where they tell us my wife was denied a pre-authorization for a prescription and to not bother reaching out to the insurance and medication companies because they can't teller her anything. I told her to call t

I was diagnosed with Discoid Lupus 10 years ago via biopsy. Since my flares were getting worse it was recommended that I see a Rhuematologist so I set an appt here. Although he had my biopsy results right in front of him he looked at me and told me that it was highly unlikely that I had lupus and only a blood test could tell. WRONG. I told him my ANA has always been negative but he didnt listen. I ended up having another biopsy done AFTER him which is POSITIVE for SLE. Avoid this arrogant jerk!

He is so thorough and kind. I do not understand the bad reviews he has received. He's so thorough. He saw something that alarmed him in a blood test that was unrelated to my RA. I had a tumor in my parathyroid. (thank you so much!) Then at another visit, he grew concerned about my lack of strength on one side of my body. He wanted me to see a neurologist. Had AVM. After receiving treatment from him my RA completely went into remission. It is now back, and he is getting a bit more aggressive

Dr. Gremillion is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever met. He spent an hour and a half with me and answered all my questions and concerns. He ordered a full panel of blood tests, and gave me suggestions for my arthritis that actually worked. SO thankful there are doctors like him that still care!!

I found the office staff at South Valley Rheumatology to be very efficient and affable. Their policies are very fair and understandable. I saw the doctor quickly (despite waiting many months to get in), and he was very thorough and listened intently to my comments and history. He performed a full examination and then explained my diagnosis to me in terms I could understand. He has a very pleasant personality and even enjoyed a joke with me. It was a very rewarding visit .

I went to Gremillion today. In January he did not order 2 arthritis panels that he was supposed to and his nurse lied and told me they were normal . Because of this, We ruled out arthritis and went to several other Dr's because my pain was getting worse. Thanks to one amazing dr who finally saw the mistake and ordered labs to find out I do have rheumatoid. I went in today and Gremillion was upset I saw other Dr's and instead of helping me sent me back to my pcp. Total jerk. Do not go here!!

I did significant searching to find a new doctor when my old one retired. I picked him based on reviews for the type of negative ones as much as the positive ones, at the time he was rated at a 3.5 just like my old one. I wanted someone who would tell it to me strait! I've read that he's arrogant on a 1 Dr. Dolittle to 10 Gerg House scale he's a four Dr. Mark Sloan from "Diagnosis Murders". A doctor needs a healthy ego or they won't survive internship. From visit one my quality of life is better

Dr Gremillion's staff is less than awesome. But Dr. Gremillion is above all expectations in care and concern. I waited a long time to get an appointment with him because of the severe shortage of Rheumatologists in Utah, this is going to be an ongoing issue for the foreseeable future, be patient, he's worth the wait!

Dr. Gremillion has been a very patient doctor and spends good time explaining doubts and concerns. My husband and I have been very happy with his consultations and appreciate the way he gives a detailed explanation regarding the medicines he prescribes and how things go about with Rheumatoid Arthritis. His ratings in Healthgrades was a concern to us before we met him but all that got cleared from our very first appointment.

Hi blonde chubby nurse is moody and rude, his wait time to schedule new appoinents is ridiculous for the level of care given. He keeps prescribing the same medicine with no results.

Terrible! I had to see him after my rheumatologist had to retire. He basically shrugged me off and refused to help me because my arthritis is most likely related to my Crohn's Disease. My first rheumatologist diagnosed me with drug induced lupus, and Dr. Gremillion wouldn't even consider helping me. I would NOT recommend him, not now, not ever!!! Plus, years ago, my husband had seen him for gout and Dr. Gremillion was NOT aggressive with treating him and he now has permanent joint damage.

I never felt like I mattered to the doctor or staff. I was just a number they ran through the motions. I missed an appointment that I wasn't aware I had since it was scheduled 2 months in advance. I never received a reminder call and was still charged $50.00 for the missed appointment. I was lucky enough to get in to another Rheumatologist that is 100% better.
