Made a plan to figure out what's wrong with me

Sought her as a second-opinion after she'd been recommended by a friend. Happy to listen, asks all the right questions, and set me up with a team of specialists and a slew of procedures to finally figure out what's wrong with my insides. Restored some hope that I will one day live as a normal, healthy person.

One Star

I've been on the fence about writing this review. But because I use reviews to make decisions, I am hopeing this could help someone else. I visited Dr Grucela earlier this year. She checked out the area of concern and immediately said I need to have surgery to have tissue removed. She did this without taking any samples or conducting a biopsy. I have never had a problem with a doctor before so I didn't question her diagnosis. However, her very poor bedside manner gave me pause after I had already scheduled surgery so I went for a second opinion. And I am very glad I did. the second doctor took a biopsy, actually sat me down to discuss what he had seen and asked me to wait for results. The biopsy came back negative and he sent me to a dermatologist. This doctor was also great and confirmed that all I had was irritation of the skin (!!!) and was shocked that a doctor wanted to operate. After a week of using a topical ointment, my issue is completely gone. The thought of having gone under the knife unnecessarily is very scary to me. I recommend a second opinion if you visit her.
