I waited in the lobby for an hour. Then, the dr. came in and didn't introduce himself and started making rude and distasteful jokes about my age and health. I asked him to stop but, he continued. He called me old. He mocked my vegetarian diet.

My experience with my provider Dr. Gruber was excellent! I was so nerves at first, then when he came in the room and started talking to me I was so relaxed after that! And everything that I thought was negative about my body, was positive later.

Visiting this provider was a complete waste of my time and money. The provider was condescending and did not take the concerns identified by my general practicioner at all. I left the appointment feeling defeated because the doctor did a basic surface level examination that offered no information that addressed my concerns. I am very concerned that I should seek a second opinion because my exam was not thorough at all. The concerns of black women in this country are too frequently ignored by medical professionals. I feel that my experience is another example of the quality of care health care disparities present in the US. Based upon my doctor's concerns and mine additional testing should have been conducted. I hope that this feedback is shared with the provider.

There is one thing I do not like about the way I get in contact with my primary doctor or Dr. Gruber, I used to be able to call direct before and get actually talk to the doctor's receptionist. Now I have to wait til the doctor's office calls back & there have been times I can't pick up. Which leaves me playing phone tag with the doctor's office.

I was very disappointed with the care I received from Dr. Gruber. While he did stop my nose from bleeding, he did not introduce himself when he walked in so I had to look on his lab coat to find out what his name was. He also made very crude statements some that were borderline racist. Then he shared a story with me about a previous patient that he had and how she didn't like that he called her fat. He then looked at my chart and examined my neck and told me that my previous doctor was wrong about the lipoma diagnosis and that I just had a fat neck and needed liposuction. Lastly, when I looked in my advocate portal for the summary of that visit I noticed that vital signs were recorded however no one took my vitals. I did not and will not return to him for follow up care. I have also shared my poor experience with Dr. Gruber to others and would never recommend him.
