I think that every patient deserves a personalized treatment plan and should be treated like family. Educating my patients about their diagnosis, what it means, and all of the treatment options available allows us to become a team – which is how I view our relationship. As a team, we make informed decisions together to come up with a treatment that is best for them.

Due to covid restrictions in place, the visit was different than I expected. However, everyone was very attentive and easy to talk with. They were on schedule, ready to do what was necessary and did all they could to make the visit as relaxed as possible. All post care was well explained and asked to make sure I understood and was comfortable with everything.

The office people were friendly and helpful with the check in procedure. The medical assistant was knowledgeable and patient in getting us settled in the patient room. Dr Gruber inspected the nose he had operated on and pronounced the healing was complete with very good results. I agreed with him that it would be difficult to find any visible signs of the stitches. He also answered and gave helpful explanations to my questions.

Dr. Gruber’s bed-side manner is unmatched! He made an awful experience as enjoyable as it could possibly be with his friendly, fun personality and calm, reassuring demeanor. Reflects in his staff as well!

Dr. Gruber and his nurse, Jill, made the whole experience easy! They really put me at ease by answering all my questions (before I even asked them). I would highly recommend them to anyone needing MOHS!
