I had a growing ovarian mass, my ob/gyn, suggested its time to have it removed and that I find a Dr. that specializes in laparoscopic gynecology/oncology. After an extensive internet search, I narrowed it down to 2 Doctors. One Doctor was much closer in distance – but, after meeting Dr. Gretz, I knew between his credentials and surgery plan, he was the Dr. for me. No, he did not coddle me and tell me what I wanted to hear ---he didn’t tell me surgery is no big deal, you’ll be fine, no, you don’t have cancer , etc. – He had a detailed surgery plan for me which included how he would proceed with surgery if lab results tested positive for cancer. Was it scary to hear? Absolutely, but he has to tell you the best/worse case scenario and how he will take care of it. My surgery at White Plains hospital (also high recommended) was booked within a few weeks I found his personality fine- he joked, smiled, took his time answering my questions, there is nothing wrong with his personality. He is a very focused, detailed, professional experienced surgeon. Even only after meeting with him twice, I had complete confidence in him, which was verified as soon as I woke up from surgery in the recovery room with no pain and my mass removed, the nurse remarked all of Dr. Gretz patients recover so well. I’m 2 weeks out from surgery and I’m completely amazed how well I recovered. Dr. Gretz is a brilliant doctor and surgeon, I highly recommend him!
Absolutely an awful experience by this man very rough during my internal exam, no bedside manner, rude, inconsiderate , spoke down to my husband and I. Left he's office very upset with no clarification on my issue. I would hate to be a newly diagnosed patient have to go and see him. He's nurse Linda and PA were lovely women I don't know how they work with such and arrogant man
I agree with the patients who rave about Dr. Gretz' competence, seriousness, and esteem among colleagues. I've never before encountered a specialist who every other professional recommends is "excellent" and "the one" to see. that is how I came to be Dr. Gretz' patient. I had a complicated fibroid case and felt very comfortable with Dr. Gretz performing the surgery. He answered all my questions in detail and never once talked down to me or made me feel awkward for asking so many questions or for discussing my anxieties with him. The surgery was a success and I recommend him to anyone who wants the best.
