Dr. Griem is an excellent doctor. She took wonderful care of me, answered my questions every one of them, spent as much time with me as needed, and 10 years later I am still doing well. I have kept in touch with her over the years, and she has always been very thoughtful and gracious. You could not ask for a better doctor to take very good care of you as you battle cancer.
I was hesitant about seeing this doctor due to a few negative reviews on her personality. However, her reputation as a skilled physician is outstanding, so I decided to see her anyway. I was very pleased with my visit. Dr. Griem was friendly and informative. She gave me her medical opinions on my situation, but told me the ultimate decision in my treatment was up to me. I also felt I was given enough time to ask all the questions I wanted. I have nothing negative to say about my experience with this doctor.
Her bedside manner was very dismissive. At times she was downright rude. She may be a fine doctor, I really wouldn't know. I would not go to her for treatment because I don't need to feel like she's doing me a favor by her presence. I would in fact be hiring her, although that will never happen. I need to be treated by someone who seems to care. Maybe she was having a bad day. I'll never know.
