We trust this doctor with our 2 year old 100%. After reading so many negative comments it's clear many were written by the same angry person. Gillette does follow up on any complaints. Disgruntled and ignorant patrons are at any practice. Educate yourself before believing some of the negative claims. And if you're easily offended and have no sense of the neuro world at all, maybe stick with a doc that will literally hold your hand through all of it. I fully appreciate Graupman's humor and have never seen anything out of line. He is extremely intelligent and I could see some people simply not being able to understand any of the complex topics he deals with. That's not his fault. You can't fix stupid.
First of all, if you are told that your child needs surgery, get 4-5 opinions from different places. You may find out that your child does not need the surgery at all. Also you may discover a problem that you never knew existed. Never trust Gillette's one opinion, and this doctor's in particular. You'll be doomed and absolutely married to a miserable way of life, if you do. Take a look at what Gillette's neurosurgeon did to a boy from Texas on KARE11 "Medical Miracle or Medical Torture" My daughter was almost victimized the same way by Dr.Graupman. At Gillette, they have a method of aggressively putting a patient in hospital by offering an immediate surgery (including unnecessary). When exposed, the doctors blame parents for their own malpractice. In the TX boy's case the mother was blamed for "duping" the doctor into performing multiple unnecessary surgeries on her 9-year old son. In our case, the mother was blamed for not consenting to an unnecessary cord detethering surgery on a spinal cord that was not tethered and for getting additional opinions that exposed Dr.Graupman's con. In the TX boy's case the NS did not look at the boy's medical record. In our case, Dr.Graupman made his "diagnosis" without reviewing the MRI that he himself had ordered. In his pursuit of multiple higher-paying elective surgeries that would have secured our child as Gillette's patient for years to come, Dr.Graupman did not tell us that the child had a brain tumor. We had to find that out from Boston Children's neurosurgeons. There is a good reason why Gillette is not nationally ranked in neurosurgery. This hospital promotes surgery for money. It sweeps complaints about its doctors under the rug, and takes part in medical records alterations to cover up for its doctors' malpractice. AG of MN supports this hospital no matter what. Dr. Graupman is untouchable by virtue of his connections. If this doctor hurts your child, you will have no recourse. You may save your child and yourself a lifetime of unnecessary pain and misery by avoiding Dr.Graupman's "services".
Hmm..Amazing doctor Graupman? We already know that you think you are amazing. Not that there is anything wrong with healthy self-esteem, but it does not seem right that you should sign your self-review with someone else's name. Likewise, it does not seem right that you should remove reviews written by people who experienced your amazing services, from other sites. Finally, congratulations on having a son of your own - that had to be really something.
