He is very informative and explaining what's wrong, in my case with a meniscus tear. Bottom line is he's a straight shooter. I trusted him for that but also because he went through his residency at cook county hospital with my brother a whole bunch of years ago.

Dr Gryzlo and the entire staff or terrific to interact with. They spent a lot of time with me after getting the x-rays and going over the MRI that I brought there. He suggested that I get physical therapy rather than proceed with a full knee procedure at this point in time. I really appreciated his candor.
