Dr. G. practices/continues to practice for the RIGHT reasons: NOT money, NOT ego, but a sincere desire to help people. This is obvious to me every time I talk to her.

I am a new patient and this was my first visit to the office and to the advocate system. Overall my experience was positive and the people I interacted with were helpful, friendly and overall professional. As this was a first time visit, I needed to fill in various forms with my information. Though not as important...the layout and the condition of the forms were messy and the words fading as if they had been photocopied too many times.

Dr. Gravdal has cared for me for years now and I feel blessed with her friendship.

Dr. Gravdal has been my primary MD for many years. She remains knowledgeable - compassionate. I highly recommend her. Getting appointments can be challenging.

Dr. Gravdal has been my Family Dr. for quite a few years. I always prefer to see her but sometimes when it's an emergency I have to see an associate. Recently I ended up in the hospital & I had to see an associate for the follow up but she did stop by while I was there to personally ask me how I was doing.

Reviewed on August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

She is very helpful and provides a lot of information. I like that she will consider a conservative approach to issues first.

Appreciate Dr Gravdal always washes her hands before touching me. She always seems so rush at the end to go over the paper work or documents after getting them from the office.

Dr. Judith Gravdal always does an outstanding job in taking care of me and seems to get the referrals necessary to get the answers to take care of my medical problems.

dr g is a great physician. I really enjoy going to see her. her support staff is good. I was a little upset that they called my home phone and left a message but didn't attempt to call my alternative number with test results. In the future they should attempt to call the second number if the person does not pick up the original number.

Reviewed on February 2, 2018 6:00 PM

I haven't had a medical professional take so much time trying to get to know me and my medical issues and concerns since I was a child with a family doctor who made house calls! It was quite refreshing. I sincerely felt like Doctor Gravdal was motivated by a desire to help people.
