His surname may be a bit tricky (it’s pronounced “GROOT-wah-sink”…and it’s Dutch, by the way), but everything else about “Dr. G” is pretty easygoing.
“Becoming an OGBYN physician was a natural path for me,” explains Dr. G. “I love kids, I feel a special kinship and understanding of women and women’s healthcare, and there’s nothing like helping a family bring a new little one into the world. A pregnancy is one of the most joyful times in life.”
A 1991 graduate of the St. Louis University School of Medicine, Dr. G tends to be reserved about his many professional accomplishments. But that doesn’t stop others from expressing their praise. Described by patients as a “caring and skilled doctor,” Dr. Grootwassink has received many 100% ratings on the National Doctor Database (nddb.net). One satisfied woman summed up her experience this way: “My OB retired a few years ago—and I wasn’t sure anyone would be as kind and attentive. Dr. Grootwassink is both. He indicated I needed surgery to do a bladder repair and partial hysterectomy, which I just recently had. He took so much time answering questions—and always returns phone calls!!” From infertility to cancer screening, he walks patients through every step of the process.
Other patients have described Dr. G as “understanding and supportive,” thanked him for “making me feel comfortable,” and one raved that it was “rare to find an awesome doctor!”
