I recommend Dr. Gritsus to anyone who is interested in weight loss surgery. His office will help you to qualify with your insurance and the services are top-notch! Could not have been happier!!
in Paramus, NJ |
I was very happy with the care I received in this office! They took care of me the entire way from start to the aftercare. No complications and I even did not take any pain pills after my surgery!!
in Fair Lawn, NJ |
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 !!!
in Teaneck, NJ |
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.
in Suffern, NY |
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!
