  • Dr. Grumet was very kind & carried himself well that makes you have confidence as him as a doctor. My only criticism is that you could tell he was very much "on to the next" like he was busy and saw so many patients after getting my meniscus removed by him and all the appointments i'm sure i have spent less than 15 min total together (where i'm awake lol). Not sure if he could pick me out of a crowd. But great bedside manner and made me feel comfortable with my surgery when I did get the chance to talk to him! Also must have done a good job because my knee is healing well and very minimal scars!

  • I believe Dr. Robert Grumet is one of the best orthopedic surgeons if you need rotator cuff surgery. I have been told Dr. Grumet loves what he does, and makes good decisions. How could you not trust and feel safe with a doctor who has these things said about him. His anesthesiologist is the one who mentioned that to be just before my recent surgery. I would not trust or have anyone else but Dr. Grumet! You would never be sorry, plus he is a very nice man!! He will take good care of you definitely!

He is very skillful and professional on operations He repaired my ligaments in my knee and shoulder. He made good recommendations on treatment and rehabilitation before and after the surgery, He is a doctor that I trust and recommend to all without any hesitation.
