Dr. Grace is the person that you want as your surgeon and as your advocate as you recover in the hospital. Do as he and his office requests pre and post surgery and you'll be dancing with the stars in no time. The good doctor removed a lobe of my lung and preformed a sleeve resection and he said that I would be back hiking the mountains soon. He was correct. It was/is a challenge but I am doing it. As with any surgery there can be complications and you are made aware of any that can arise.

In Jan '15 I went in the a complete occlusion of the femoral artery. Stents from a previous procedure by another doctor failed and collapsed causing no blood flow to the leg. 6 of no flow and finally getting flow, Dr. Grace saved my leg. 15 months later, the artificial artery became infected and the infection spread. Dr. Grace one again, did the procedure. One other point. My wife was beside me during all of this - and Dr. Grace took the time and care to tell her to go home and rest.

My husband was diagnosed with an aneurysm 2 years ago and it was frightening. However, after talking to Dr. Gary Rada our primary physician who said he knew just the man to send us to see. He said Dr Grace had the best skills of any Dr in the Valley and people sought him out because of his ability to put sleeves on aneurysm's which took all the fear out of the procedure for my husband. Dr. Rada said He is the best and I would never send a patient of mine to anyone else. He makes it look easy

Dr. R. Grace was rude and condescending to me and family while my husband was recovering from lung cancer surgery at Honor Health (JCL North Mountain) in December, 2015
