Patient Reviews (7)
He is very good at managing my medications. He is a little hyper which could be a little overwhelming for some - but again I stress he was good at finding the right meds for me. He's not going to be a very warm gentleman. I figure that's what therapy is for. He doesn't want to hear about your problems. He's been very honest with me about his beliefs and feelings about different meds. I believe he is very competent. Just hyper and not warm and fuzzy. A good fit for me - probably not for some.

Dr. Gratzer made me so uncomfortable that I have decided not to return for any more follow-ups, risking running out of medication. He has made very weird inappropriate comments to me more than once and I would rather skip my medication refill appointments than have to go see him. Aside from comments he has made he is very "uppity"; he walks very fast and flails his arms while he walks, he talks fast, and it seems like he even thinks fast as most of my appointments are about 5 minutes long.

Dr Gratzer is friendly and enthusiastic to work with. He is not someone to tell your troubles to. He is great at working through medicine issues.

The Bad Dr. has written every one of the raving five-star reviews in 2016 since being fired for incompetency. My proof: they are all identical in form, feedback, most words and how he spoke (former patient who will be suing him also), no names included, the reviews were all negative in prior years and he has used those negative comments and turned them positive (brief and rushed is never good w/ controlled subs.). He is a quacks quack. No testing?just writes scripts while talking politics.

I have seen Dr Gratzer for 10 years - I would and have recommended him to dozens of people - he specializes in what I call hospitality industry stress - seeing him was the best decision I ever made. Flexible scheduling options make seeing him convenient.

15 years of positive experience. Some may find his style somewhat unorthodox, but why must people equate different with bad? Based on my experience and that of the many who have seen him based on my recommendation, his results are excellent. Maybe if you prefer style over substance you should see someone else.

Had Dr. Gratzer for many years and was the best Doctor I had. Always listened, very patient and understanding and a remarkable Dr. that genuinely cares about his patients. I cannot say enough good things about him and I highly recommend him.
