    During my pregnancy Dr Growdon was an outstanding physician. I’m 42 years old, so considered a high risk patient. He was never in a rush- has a very caring personality and called me himself to discuss care. I had a C Section and there were no post procedure infections, the healing was perfect. A drainage tube was placed to prevent infection and the removal process had minimal pain. I highly recommend him. I really trust him and was thankful to have such an amazing physician.
    Dr. Growdon is an amazing doctor. He is really good and i trust him. I highly recommend him. He has a very warm personality. He will personally call you to make sure everything is ok.

    Dr. Growdon was the best doctor! We are very pleased that he guided us through our first pregnancy and we would love for him to deliver our next baby if possible. Aside from his professionalism, I loved that he was so open to listen to my concerns and desire to have a natural birth.
