She seems genuinely concerned about getting a remedy to the problem. She wants all of my providers to look at this together to find out what we are looking at. She is not positive that it is something for the Rheumatologist alone to figure out.

Dr Grismer is very easy to talk to, very thorough, knowledgeable, and empathetic. This was my initial visit and I felt that Dr Grismer was very interested in diagnosing and getting to the cause of my issues. She scheduled testing and bloodwork to determine what might be causing my issues, as well as some neurological testing in case my issues are outside of her discipline. She approached my care in a logical and thorough fashion. Very pleased with her approach to my care.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Grismer and she exceeded my expectations. She seems very caring knowledgeable and empathetic to what I'm dealing with. I like that she doesn't want to medicate without finding the source of the problem. She recommended a test that I feel is important to getting to the root of my illness that none of my past doctors have ever mentioned and I greatly appreciate that.
