I adore Dr. Granieri! I wish I could have her as my primary care physician because she is so thorough. I trust her completely. Dr. Granieri looks at me as a whole person and answers my questions about more than she has to. I always leave feeling satisfied and cared for. I truly appreciate this. My only suggestion for improvement would be to reduce the amount of time I have to wait in the examining room before she sees me. On two previous visits, it was an hour wait after the nurse talked to me and took my blood pressure. If I'm going to wait a long time to be seen, I would rather sit in the waiting room and have someone let me know how long the wait is expected to be.
