Granite Quarry, NC – Oct 03, 2017
My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Grubb for 10 years. We both feel he is excellent and my wife has told him he can't retire until we are dead. He is very knowledgeable on all phases of medicine and we feel in many cases may have a more accurate diagnosis than the specialists he sends us to. We have moved to a location 2-1/2 hours away from his office but still see him as our Doctor.
