My comment about Dr Groth is primarily about his billing staff. They try their darnedest to try to double bill you as often as they can. Keep all records of canceled checks, and get a receipt af all payments made associated with the dates of service. They will bill you for payments made dating back 6 months to a year. Don't throw nothing out. Look and print information about your deductable. KEEP IT FOR REFERENCE. Very shrude billing staff. Attitude to you if you confront them

He is a very pleasant person. However, my visits with him last about 5-6 minutes, at most. I get the feeling that because I am a Medicaid patient, he may not want to spend too much time with me. Medicaid doesn't pay like a private insurance does. I have seen him spend up to 20 minutes with a patient. Maybe it's the $$$ insurance. I really don't know because I can't get into his head, BUT... I'm not thrilled. That is why he gets a FAIR from me.

Dr Groth was very nice. The staff seemed clueless. The wait time I am still here 2.5 hrs later. Almost an hour and forty five min later we were seen. Now it's been 50 min and I am still waiting for a shot. This is insane. I have been here since 12:00PM and it is 2:40 and still waiting. Waiting room over crowed no place to sit when we arrived. They kept saying we are a little behind schedule. When asked how long waitbwould be the front desk couldn't give me an answer, Great first impression.

I've been seeing Dr. Groth following an MVA in 2000. He is compassionate, attentive, and aware of the latest medical treatments for Chronic Pain sufferers. He genuinely cares about his patients, as does his staff. If it were not for the neck and knee injections, I'd never be able to move. I am grateful to have found him, and would highly recommend Dr. Groth to friends and family.

Dr. Groth has been my doctor for 5 years. HIs injections are head on, and give me months of relief. Especially the occiptical nerve block and radio frequency ablasion. Dr groth is patient, thorough, answers questions, and makes sure everything is going smoothly. He is on top of everything as well as the staff. HIs staff is very helpful, Amanda returns calls promptly and always professionally.I reccommend this office highly, you will not be disappointed.
