James C. Grotting, MD Reviews (343)

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Grotting has always been very considerate & his staff is also.

Breast Augmentation

All the staff members have been so nice and made me feel very comfortable. They have been so great with working with my work schedule, have answered any questions I’ve had and have all changed my life tremendously with what Dr. Grotting and his staff have done for me.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I always have a wonderful experience when I come in. Everyone is warm and welcoming. I have more confidence

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Grotting performed a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, and lipo on me and I had a wonderful experience. His work was exceptional and my results make me feel so much more confident. His staff is also wonderful and really helped make sure I had a good experience. They were always easy to communicate with and helped me every time I came in post op.

Injectable Fillers

Always pleased w/Dr Grotting.

Neck Lift

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I did not have to wait very long to see the doctor, they respected my time, even asking me if I was okay with the time that the consultation was taking. Dr. Grotting was kind and thorough through the exam, suggesting different options. Although I have not decided if I want to do the surgery or not, it really doesn't have anything to do with the staff or the money for the procedure.

Tummy Tuck

The doctor and staff were very informative and made me feel very comfortable.

Breast Lift

I was nervous going in. The ladies at the front desk were so friendly! Dr. Grotting was very professional and helped me to make decisions. And Vicki was just the sweetest in walking me through everything! I was referred to Dr. Grotting and I’m so glad I followed that recommendation.

Breast Augmentation

The office was quiet and private. Staff friendly and helpful. Surgeon had great bedside manner.

Face Lift

Dr. Grotting is very personable. He listens to all of your concerns regardless whether they are big or small. The overall process (office staff, first appointment, surgery staff, nurse, stay in hotel, after surgery visits) instills confidence in you that everything you made a great choice by coming to Dr. Grotting. [Single best thing is...] Having everything written out and in order (prescriptions, vitamins, emotion chart, etc) along with Ms. Vicki available to answer any questions made this experience awesome!

Face Lift

Dr. Grotting and his staff were professional and friendly. Dr Grotting explained the procedure very clearly, and I felt well informed.The before and after photos shown to me were very helpful.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Everything was great

Eyelid Surgery

All questions were answered.

Face Lift

Team was very thoughtful and thorough, showed pictures that would reflect after procedure results. Felt no pressure to move forward should I choose not to.

Breast Augmentation

I never thought I would get a breast augmentation, but after nursing two children I became interested in a subtle enhancement to better fill out my clothes & bathing suits. Dr. Grotting and his nursing staff took the time to listen to my specific needs and helped ease my fears about elective surgery. They never pressured me to do anything I wasn't comfortable doing. I am extremely satisfied with the results of my surgery.

Breast Reduction

I was extremely pleased with the overall outcome of the surgery and recovery. My back pain was completely resolved. The back spasms I had been experiencing were completely relieved by the surgery. I was hoping they would not get worse, but they went away completely. I wish I had had the surgery years ago. Also, clothes fit much better!

Face Lift

Dr. listened to all my concerns and worked on them all to give me the best result.

Face Lift

Dr. Grotting was kind, compassionate, and so very skilled. I’m so glad I followed his recommendation. The outcome is better than I could have ever imagined.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Grotting was great! He made me feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable. My results are excellent and the whole team is so kind !


Dr. Grotting listened to my desires and concerns and made sure I got the exact nose shape that I wanted. My results are amazing. The recovery was smooth, and he was available to answer all my questions before, during, and after the surgery. I am so grateful for him and his team, as well as my new confidence! My results are absolutely perfect. It has changed the way that I feel about myself.
