I love Dr Grillo and his staff..Dr Grillo is one of the most through and doesnt play games like alot of other doctors.He found what was wrong with my feet and told me what i had to do to fix it.He is very conservative with his treatment and does what is needed not what you think needs to be done.His staff is very kind and compassionate.and would recommend you give him a try to fix your feet like he did with mine.Thank you Dr Grillo and staff formy my feet feel better.

I highly recommend Dr. Grillo. HE cares and it was a blessing to "find him" years ago when I first started having problems with my feet. He provides excellent health care and information on your health issues. Dr. Grillo and his staff are caring and the office atmosphere is terrific. He doesn't play around with words. He gives it to you straight. Gruff manner but a teddy bear inside! If you're having problems and you need a podiatrist he's your doctor to go to. You will not go wrong.

The office staff is so sweet - they treat you like they've known you all of your life! Dr. Grillo is the 5th (!!) Podiatrist I saw before I got a diagnosis. He explained everything to me. The nature of the problem, the order in which we would try treatments, and gave me advice on proper shoes to wear. I will go back in four weeks, hopefully with improvement with the least invasive treatment. If no improvement, we will move on to his second choice. He so so kind, smart and takes his time!

I have been with Dr. Grillo for a couple of years now and always had a great experience with not only him but the entire office staff. They always remember who you are, even when you call, sincerely care about your well being, and are always upbeat and personable. It is a pleasure every visit. Back to the doc... He did a fantastic job with both of my ingrown toenails and has gone above and beyond to help me find relief with my RSD/CRPS pain that I suffer from. I highly recommend this office!

My son needed to see a specialist and we couldn't be happier! Not only is Dr. Grillo thorough & informative- the office staff is so friendly and welcoming. There's never been an issue with getting scheduled and no wait time for appointment! My son loves going to see his foot doctor!
Dr. Grillo is the best. He is the first doctor to actually find out what has been causing the pain in my foot and is going to do something about it. I've suffered with this for 5 years and have seen 3 different doctors and none of them took the time to order an MRI to find out what was wrong. I am so greatful to have found Dr. Grillo.

Dr. Grillo and his staff are amazing! Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable with a great personal touch and bedside manner. Not a grumpy soul in the place and I never felt like just another number.

First of all, his office staff is wonderful; they are very friendly and efficient. Dr. Grillo has a great bedside manner and I was very impressed with him. He asks questions, listens and explains things thoroughly. I believe he diagnosed me correctly and we are trying a conservative treatment first before we even think about surgery as an option. I feel very fortunate that I have him as my podiatrist!

Dr. Grillo is a wonderful doctor who takes the time to really understand your concerns. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew just what to do to relieve my foot pain. He performed three procedures on one foot - did an outstanding job and I now have no pain! He set the proper expectations for my recovery and end result.
