Dr, Grondel has replaced two hips for me. I found him very attentive and willing to answer any questions that I had. Both hip replacements are still doing great. I especially appreciated his kindness and skill when I developed MRSA staff after my second operation. In no way was this the surgeon's fault, but his concern and care during this time were wonderful.

He was great and the staff was great. And I
in Henderson, NV |
He made the most sense of any Dr. I spoke with and told me my options and that even with the MRI he would know more once he was able to look inside. He was very through did what was best for my knee. I believe I received the best from him. The procedure was done at St.Rose and the anesthesia and assistants were fine. Once I awoke (the hospital) staff wanted me to leave right away.

I believe Dr. Grondel is a very good doctor. However, if I were to recommend him to a friend I would advise the person to be prepared to wait at the minimum of at least an hour past their designated appointment time before seeing the doctor, and very likely longer. I would also advise them not to expect Dr. Grondel's staff to be especially sympathetic, if they should express dissatisfaction about the excessive wait time. They don't seem to be concerned about your wait time.

Dr. Grondell is the best. He did 2 knee surgeries on the same knee and I have enjoyed his work he did. I wouldn't consider going to anyone else.
