Dr. Gruber took more time with me than my GI specialist. He also explained the concerns over new medication I was given that my GI doctor never went over with me. He called me after his long day to follow up to see how I was because he knew how scared I was of some new symptoms. Dr. Gruber has been helping me since June navigate GI issues and blood work.

Dr. Gruber is the best! I always feel he's attentive, knows what he's doing, and cares about me as a patient. If he's busy, I don't even mind, since I realize that means he's devoting his attention to another patient as conscientiously as he does with me. How can I mind him doing his job properly? Answer: I don't mind, since I don't expect a human to act like a machine.

I could not praise Dr. Gruber more highly! He is attentive and alert to different aspects of my treatments. He addresses himself to whatever condition I am there for, asks the right questions. Because he would not overlook my A1C reading going up over the last three years (unlike his predecessor who did not alert me to my pre-diabetic state), I have now been given the right medication, and have lost 21 pounds. I have lowered my A1C thanks to Dr. Gruber, and am doing better than I was last year. I will continue to follow Dr. Gruber's recommendations and treatments, and feel confident I am heading toward better health, even though I am asthmatic and diabetic. He is an excellent doctor!
