Our experience with Dr. Gristus and staff was beyond our expectations. Everyone from Sue "Wonder Woman" at the front desk of the office to Holly at the procedure center and OR staff were not only professional but incredibly kind. I have worked in healthcare for many years, and this staff is top notch! Dr. Gristus puts you immediately at ease and you know you are in capable hands.

The office has a pleasant atmosphere and receptionists are super friendly. The doctor took his time to go over my case and I never felt rushed. He took my insurance too, which was a big plus as I was looking for a surgeon for a while. Now I am booked for my gastric sleeve and can not be happier!

Dr. Gritsus is the best! He is a excellent surgeon! Great bedside manner and very patient. He will answer all your questions. You can call he anytime and he gets back to you right away! The staff is excellent! Very efficient. I was so impressed by the way they were so organized. I had the gastric sleeve done plus my gallbladder and hernia removed at the same time. I recovered with no pain. I am 65 years old. I highly recommend Dr Gritsus! You will not regret choosing him as your surgeon.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gritsus for 3 years and love his care! The office environment is very welcoming without making you feel like a number. I have been to many doctors and unfortunately sometimes you feel like they do not care about you, just your insurance and paperwork. NOT DR. GRITSUS!!! He totally will listen to you. And yes, he DOES RETURN YOUR CALLS !!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Gritsus for several years and I can attest that he is one the best doctors I ever was treated by. The office has a warm, friendly atmosphere you do not see that often nowadays, with corporate medicine taking over. In Dr. Gritsus's practice you receive top care and you always feel welcomed!! I never had to wait for more than 20 min for appointment and all calls are returned promptly. Great office staff as well as the Doctor.

Competent doctor for complex cases. Dr Gritsus has been a lifesaver in case of my mom's complicated situation. He has been able to help her with his great abilities. His office staff is also very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with on a daily basis. Thanks!
