Prescott, AZ |
I saw Dr. Gross for an exam the day after a surgery performed by his associate Dr. Dao. This was my only experience with Dr. Gross. Gross was rude and arrogant. When I moaned a bit about having to take multiple drops 4X a day and would have to have my caregiver come additional times to help with the drops, Gross leaned into my 92 y/o face and shouted, "What?! You can't put drops into your own eyes?!" Gross made additional rude remarks in answer to my questions. Stay away.

I thought it was just me. I just recently went to Gross (i can't call him dr., i don't have that respect for him) to have a check up because of a recent examination that worried me. I waited 5 weeks to see this man, this rude, condescending man, who's my age and talked to me like I was a child. I heard he's the best at what he does; maybe that's the cause of his arrogance. I have one more visit before my eye surgery. If he pisses me off one more time, I will call everything off.
I have been seeing Dr. Gross regularly for 14 yrs. Unfortunately something has changed. He is rude and demeaning and has been for the past few years. He should Improve his attitude and demeanor if he plans to keep practing medicine

My appointment was at 915. Arrived early to fill out paperwork. Got into the room about 930, Dr Gross didnt arrive until 1015. No apology just how are you. Started asking about what eye medications I was taking and when. I started to tell him who prescribed what and was cut off and told he did not care who gave them to me. He QUICKLY explained how he was going to take a culture and he said they would numb my eye and I said so I wont feel anything. He says Thats what numb means and on it went

He explained everything very well. After visiting Dr. Gross I'm not as worried about my eyes as I used to be. A Dr. at J.C. Lincoln hospital's ER made an appointment with Dr. Gross, late at night, and I was seen by Dr. Gross at 8:30 a.m. next morning. I would recommend Dr. Gross to my family and friends.
