initial visit was satisfactory. following the visit some other symptoms occurred . I called the office numerous times asking to talk to Dr Gruber or the audiologist who performed hearing test. although the receptionist understood my problem and told me that I would get call back or appointment I have not received any follow up call. I sent the email to audiologyst Dr. De Julia. no answer received. As a retired physician who was associated with Advocate Christ Hospital for over 30 years I was very disetisfied with follow up care

Spent 5 minutes gave me a list of foods not to eat & come back in 3 mos. I was hesitant to ask questions his manner was very brisk as if he was too busy and my problem was mundane.

Reviewed on December 4, 2017 6:00 PM

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.
