James C. Grotting, MD Reviews (282)

Face Lift

Very satisfied with the availability of Dr Grotting and Dr Patel. Dr Patel gave his phone number to me should I have any questions or concerns. I felt all my questions were addressed and comfortable with the recommendations of Dr Grotting. Dr Grottings suggestions were spot on. I had multiple procedures done on my face and 3 weeks post surgery I am very pleased. One of the most important aspects of the consultation was I never felt pressured.

Face Lift

Dr Grotting performed my breast reduction procedure years ago and am satisfied with his expertise. Dr and staff are very informative and nice.

Eyelid Surgery

I was most impressed that Dr. Grotting took as much time as he did during the consultation.Everyone I encountered was friendly & made me feel comfortable.


Professional and friendly!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Grotting did an amazing job on my surgery, the entire staff was super helpful, and very friendly!!! Truly a wonderful organization!! I feel more confident with my body!!

Breast Augmentation

I was treated very professionally, I felt very comfortable as the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The doctor was very good, confident and able to show me how my procedure would look and walked me through how it would all go. I was very at ease with his ability.

Breast Implant Revision

I was thoroughly impressed with the kindness of the doctor and his staff. Everyone was informative and nice. I did not feel rushed during my consultation. I plan on scheduling my surgery within the next month. I would recommend him to anyone and already have to 2 friends.

Breast Augmentation

One suggestion I have- when i visited other practices for consultations, I felt a lot more informed on all aspects of the surgery. I feel as though I felt I understood every aspect of the procedure, before and after from this other practice. However, I felt a lot more comfortable with Grotting and his practice, and also liked his aesthetic with my before and after pictures more. One suggestion I have is to educate patients more during the consultation.

Face Lift

Everyone was caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Grotting answered all of my questions and seemed caring and concerned.

Face Lift

The surgeon listened to me about the changes I wanted to make. He made a few suggestions and we were on the same page aBout what needed to be done. Everyone I met was extremely nice and all my questions answered. They told me if I had further questions after the consultation, to please give any of them a call back for answers.

Fat Transfer

Dr. Grotting did my face lift, etc., 11 years ago, after my researching online and being satisfied with his education, reputation, and his experience. Dr. Grotting was most professional but not warm toward me at any time. That was O.K. because he did did an outstanding job on my face! The visit this month, however, was different. Dr. Grotting was very warm and gracious, smiled more, and demonstrated a different level of interest and concern for me as a patient. I liked it. However, I came to him once again not for friendliness, etc., but for the excellent job he did 11 years ago. However, I will take this visit anytime!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Grotting and his staff were very professional and friendly. He explained the surgery very well and in a way that was easy to understand. He took what I had to say in consideration and really wants to give me the best look possible.

Face Lift

Loved the staff as well as Dr. Grotting! They were very easy to talk with and made sure I understood the answers to all my questions. Dr. Patel made sure I had his cell so I could call or text him at anytime with questions or concerns. I did make use of his number and he quickly answered my questions and concerns. Great experience dealing with Dr. Grotting and his staff. Wish I had known about him before now. Would highly recommend him to anyone!

Eyelid Surgery

Quality of care and professionalism. Cost was very fair.

Tummy Tuck

The price was much higher than anticipated and more than friends paid to other providers.


Professionalism & trust in the Doctor!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Grotting was extremely knowledgable and professional. I especially appreciated that he was honest about what was and was not possible for my body type. He would not let me get a breast augmentation that did not fit my body. I also liked that he was really only there for the parts that were absolutely necessary. As I was taking my before photos and trying on silicone forms, it was his female assistant who was helping me, which made me much more comfortable. Not because he was creepy (because he definitely wasn't) but just because those things are easier when it is only women in the room.

Face Lift

The experience was pleasant, the surgeon interested and answered all questions. i had a good feeling about the practice and the knowledge and interest of all of the staff. I did some fillers and botox as a result of the conversation and am very pleased with the results. All in all, the experience was what I would expect from a consultation with a plastic surgeon.
