doctor and staff were very pleasant
Dr Grunwaldt literally changed my life. I was experiencing really bad chest dysphoria and shes the one who performed my top surgery and took a weight off my chest (literally) I really truly feel 100x better than I did before her help and I can't thank her enough. she did a really good job with the surgery and results are fantastic.
I would highly recommend Dr. Grunwaldt. She is a consummate professional and an amazing surgeon.
This was the final follow-up appointment for our daughter after her breast reduction surgery. We were pleased every step of the way with Dr. Grunwaldt. We had the best care possible...from the initial consultation, to the surgery and to this final visit. Dr. Grunwaldt's expertise and positive outlook really made this difficult process much easier to maneuver. Her administrator, Maria, worked with us and made the scheduling and billing easy, which was much appreciated.
Dr. Grunwaldt was very knowledgeable and was very respectful of me.
She was wonderful! Spent time with me and answered all of my questions. Very friendly and professional.
Wonderful doctor - very caring and informative
The doctor made my daughter feel as comfortable as she could and that was greatly appreciated.
Dr. Grunwaldt met or exceeded expectations. She has provided me with information and confidence to move ahead with my care.
Anytime we have to use Childrens services at any location. The employees are always compassionate.
Everything medically related was great and what I expected
Dr Grunwaldt was exceptionally knowledgeable and nice
Dr. Grunwaldt is very respectful and knowledgeable when it comes to transgender and non-binary patients. She treats you with respect and uses your name and pronouns. She is a wonderful surgeon and was very responsive whenever I had questions or concerns.
She was very thorough, but she was very snappy getting through the appointment in a way that made it feel rushed. I wished she had gone through it all a little bit slower so I would have felt like I had a little more space to talk through the surgery I'm getting or to voice concerns. She definitely asked me if I had any questions or concerns. It was just how quickly she went through everything that made it feel less personal.
She always seems to care about my health and wellbeing and is down to earth.
She gave me all the information I needed.
was very nice, clearly explained things
knew my sons history before coming into room- much appreciated - dr and PA were caring and professional and truly wanted to address all concerns to make my son and myself comfortable.
The surgeon didn't need to apologize for examining what I was there to have examined. As a trans man happy to have access to top surgery from a talented surgeon and proven track record of good top surgery results, I don't need the provider to apologize and attempt to commiserate with me while examining the body part that I'm there to have examined and eventually reconstructed. I also felt like I didn't receive a direct answer when I asked why I received information about the surgery support psychologist when I'd already stated that my psychiatrist had the required letter of medical necessity on the way. If the surgeon had a concern about mental health issues pre- and post- procedure, I would want to know so I can address those concerns ahead of time with my regular psychiatrist. Transgender patients have historically been treated as if they are "crazy," by medical professionals, so explaining the reasoning behind sharing information about mental health evaluations is very important thing to avoid unnecessary patient anxiety from misinterpretation. With that said, Dr. Grunwaldt clearly was concerned about treating trans patients with respect, and her portfolio of top surgery results was excellent. I look forward to working with her top-notch support team and her very professional scheduler Maria. Despite the initial awkwardness in my first in-person interaction with Dr. Grunwaldt, which was only an issue of the two of us being overly-cautious about stepping around issues of properly communicating with each other, I feel like I am in very capable and trustworthy hands.
I was very comfortable with Dr. G. she made me feel better. I know she will take very good care of me.
always receive amazing care from our dr!
on time, thorough. answeres my questions as well as my daughters.
Very happy with level of care.
we arrived 30 minutes early and were in and out before our appointment time. The doctor was very gentle with my daughter and answered all of my questions.
I located Dr. Grunwaldt by searching the internet and had no idea what kind of an experience I was going to have with her. It turned out to be the best thing I could have done for my daughter. I can't go into all of the ways that Dr. Grunwaldt has helped all of us by helping my daughter, but there are many and they are heart-warming. All of us should be so lucky to have found our calling in life like she has found hers.
Dr. Grundwaldt was informative, patient and most importantly compassionate with both myself and my son.
she made me feel very comfortable with the decision to proceed with surgery
I would highly recommend Dr. Grundwaldt to anyone needing a plastic surgeon . She is kind caring and a remarkable doctor
Unable to answer questions pertaining to MRI requested. Disregarded our concerns about procedures for our daughter.
The doctor was fantastic and gave us great options on moving forward. Should we decide to move forward we will definitely be contacting her.
She answered all of my questions and helped with whatever I needed.
dr was wonderful!
the people their are great. very nice.
Other than having to wait 30 minutes to be seen I was otherwise pleased.
just very helpful and definitely great with advice
Dr. Grunwaldt and her staff were kind, knowledgeable and professional. Great experience!
Dr. Grunwaldt is an excellent surgeon and physician. The most valuable trait she possesses is that she humanizes all of it and has complete compassion for what she does. I have been so blessed to have her as my surgeon.
very happy with care received
The provider was very knowledgeable and we feel a lot more comfortable with the care that our child will be getting from this provider. All of the local providers in WV were not very helpful with our child's condition, but Dr. Lorelei set us at ease. Thank you.
great attention to detail, all questions/concerns addressed with thoughtfulness and concern
The doctor was informative and took time to explain to my child and myself her findings ans then explain the plan she would have to help resolve his issue.
My daughter and I we're both VERY pleased with the professionalism, concern and support we received.
