January 30, 2017

Dr. Grossman is superb. I am lucky to be his patient.

January 28, 2017

Good experience!

January 24, 2017

The doctor called and discussed the lab results and plan of action. I was impressed that he would take the time to make the phone call himself.

January 22, 2017

good experience

January 14, 2017

Dr. Grossman and the other Doctors I have seen have saved my life. They are the Best and I highly recommend them to everyone.

December 31, 2016

Dr Grossman is the Best.. I recommend him every opportunity that comes up

December 14, 2016

Dr. Grossman is an excellent physician! He explains what he is doing and why. He answers my questions fully and completely. If I push back on his recommendations (simple excision vs. Mohs surgery, for financial reasons), he does not take offense as many physicians do, and considers my request without dismissing it out of hand. I really appreciate that!

November 18, 2016

Dr. Douglas Grossman is such an incredible doctor. I feel like when I am there I am getting the very best care available.

November 13, 2016

Dr. Grossman is excellent in all respects.

November 08, 2016

Dr. Grossman is an excellent physician in all aspects of the practice.

November 07, 2016

like that Dr. Grossman considers me for research trials/other opportunities to learn more about melanoma study I have recommended this clinic to others in Jackson, WY and they now come to Utah for skin exams

November 06, 2016

seemed to have a lot of expertise, but limited bedside manner. Seemed very rushed.

October 30, 2016

I know he is very busy, but Dr. Grossman always spends time with me discussing my health and life in general. I never feel like he is rushing me to get to his next patient.

October 18, 2016

I had mole mapping which was highly encouraged. My experience of the mole mapping was that it was just okay. I didn't feel like I could see the images closely enough to compare my moles. I feel like the exam was not as through as it should have been.

October 17, 2016

Dr Grossman does a good job

October 05, 2016

My only comment regarding this visit...easy, comfortable and excellent.

October 04, 2016

Extremely competent.

September 26, 2016

Dr Grossman is always professional, helpful and I trust his judgment

September 24, 2016

Dr. Grossman called with my biopsy results before you got this survey sent out. Now, that's service!

September 20, 2016

Concern for questions and efforts to include me in decisions about my treatment was only rated as fair because I felt like just because the insurance company wouldn't pay for something meant in the doctor's mind that I would not be willing to pay out of pocket for the treatment I wanted. It was never even discussed as an option.

September 12, 2016

Dr. Grossman is one of those amazing doctors who seems to really care about his patients, is knowledgeable and efficient, and communicates clearly. I was impressed that he remembered my first name (or he read it on the chart and had the respect to utilize the name I prefer, rather than the official name on the chart). He always is courteous and kind, but at the same time gets on with what he needs to do at the visit, so that you don't have to be there longer than you need to. An excellent physician!

August 27, 2016

Dr. Doug Grossman is the best! I have been his patient for many years and would recommend him to everyone!

We failed to receive the follow-up care written instructions.

July 03, 2016

Dr. Grossman was very patient with me and my questions and concerns. he was even patient when I called him back into the room first one more non-related question/need. he never made me feel like I was a bother or like he needed to move on with his schedule.

June 27, 2016

Dr. Grossman is a wonderful physician. I marked all choices 'very good' in all sincerity. I'm fortunate to be his patient.

March 21, 2016

Dr. Grossman is great--excellent bedside, thorough, kind, interested.

March 09, 2016

Dr. Grossman did a superb job of explaining the pros and cons of Mohs surgery, and responding to my concerns about the relative cost of the Mohs surgery as opposed to simple excision.

March 04, 2016

Always great.

February 26, 2016

Dr. Grossman is terrific!!!

Impressive experience.

January 10, 2016

I've sent people to Dr. Grossman.

December 15, 2015

Dr. Grossman is an excellent physician. I am happy to recommend him to others. He is approachable, not rushed, and takes time to show interest in the patient.

December 08, 2015

Dr. Grossman is an excellent provider.

December 02, 2015

Dr. Grossman was very informative concerning each step of the potential procedure. This insured me that I was being treated by a very concerned physician. And after the procedure was completed the doctor informed me as exactly how I should handle my 'wounds'

November 27, 2015

I didn't realize that I was coming in for a surgery. For some reason I just thought I was going to have a little bit more scooped out. So I was surprised by the extent of the surgery but glad to know that Dr. Grossman is doing everything to keep me cancer free.

October 27, 2015

The entire experience was very good.

September 27, 2015

Introduction to a new sunscreen was greatly appreciated and so was the explanation of skin changes that are inconsequential and age-related

September 07, 2015

Dr. Grossman show genuine concern for my wellbeing.

September 04, 2015

I was unclear about the "ointment" on the biopsy wound. The check out receptionist was great in clearing up my concern by checking with the MA.

August 18, 2015

Dr. Grossman has been wonderful in his friendliness, thoroughness, concern for us, and ability to communicate the best course of conduct for our well being.

August 10, 2015

I appreciate that Dr Grossman is my Doctor.

July 15, 2015

Dr. Grossman is excellent.

July 14, 2015

very good

July 13, 2015

Although cancer is the topic, I would recommend you to everybody.

June 20, 2015

Dr Grossman was very thorough and professional. I felt like he was really addressing any concerns that I had and I love that he explains why they use the photo-comparison technique. I am a shy, reserved person and I didn't feel uncomfortable at all during my exam/photo comparison. I also appreciated that he called me personally to give me my biopsy results over the phone. I'm sure he is very busy and could easily have an assistant make the phone calls. That sort of attention and care is why I have recommended him to several friends.

June 20, 2015


June 16, 2015

I don't much care about friendly. I do care about competent, kind and attentive. Dr. Grossman and his nurse/MA are all those.

June 10, 2015


June 01, 2015

Dr. Grossman answered all of my questions and took the time that was necessary. I did not feel rushed through my appointment.

May 24, 2015

I love Dr. Douglas Grossman! He assured me that it was okay that I called and came in because if I have a concern about a mole/mark because that is what they are there for. I couldn't ask for a better, friendlier, more personable doctor!!

May 23, 2015

I know this might look like a "very good" boilerplate, but I sincerely thought that the care provided couldn't' have been better.

May 19, 2015

I always feel the exam is cursory and certain areas are routinely avoided by, even though they should be checked. I expect a total body mole check which should include areas that it might be uncomfortable for the MD to check. I never feet that my skin is checked thoroughly or carefully-only the most obvious and grossly abnormal areas would be identified given the method used.

May 03, 2015

I was shown every respect and kindness

April 26, 2015


April 26, 2015

Dr Grossman is excellent! Very knowledgeable.

April 07, 2015

Dr Grosman does a good job.

April 06, 2015

Excellent, Dr. Grossman explained every thing that he was about to do in regard to my condition. He then did exactly as he explained the procedures before enacting/applying them. And he informed me that he would contact me with the results. Excellent rapport with me and as a result I always felt totally comfortable.

April 04, 2015

I am loyal and am always impressed

April 02, 2015

The care was above and beyond normal duties.

March 21, 2015

Dr Grossman worked me into his schedule on a very busy Friday for him---which I appreciated very much

March 04, 2015

I have coming down to the Huntsman for several years. I have come to like Dr.Grossman very much and I feel very confident in his expertise. I do wish when he asked a question to me he would listen before moving on to something else. Other than that, I would recommend him to anyone I know.

February 17, 2015

I've sent four new patients.

February 15, 2015

I tell people all thew time to go to Huntsman

February 10, 2015

dr Grossman is the best.

February 03, 2015

Extremely pleased with and have great confidence in Dr. Grossman!

February 03, 2015

It is great to know that Dr. Grossman is my physician

January 26, 2015

Dr. Grossman was very friendly and listened well. He also offered the best explanation for my different skin spots that I have ever received. I was very pleased with Dr. Grossman's care. I would highly recommend him.

January 25, 2015

Dr. D. Grossman was very thorough and explained things to me very well.

January 24, 2015

Great experience! Will recommend you to my friends!

January 20, 2015

very good experience with dr. grossman

January 13, 2015

Dr. Grossman is always very friendly and professional during exams. I recommend him to anyone interested in a seeing a great dermatologist.

December 27, 2014

Dr. Grossman and the clinic staff are highly professional, helpful, friendly and thorough. I am always pleased with the services I receive at Huntsman and from Dr. Grossman.

December 12, 2014

Dr. Grossman is terrific--thoughtful and very professional

November 29, 2014

Professional and thorough....have recommended Dr. Grossman and the Huntsman Center to others!

November 24, 2014

One of the best experiences I have ever had visiting a physician.

November 20, 2014

he didn't spend a lot of time with me but I didn't expect him to. he was efficient, covered everything he needed to and got me in and out and I appreciated it.

November 16, 2014

I know this was a time saving measure, but I would have preferred we talked then did the exam, rather than doing both simultaneously. Also I didn't love that I had to change into the gown BEFORE meeting him. I know there's a tight schedule but it wasn't very comfortable.

November 11, 2014

Dr G is the BEST!

October 06, 2014

I will always keep coming back to Dr. Grossman.

September 12, 2014

I quite like Dr. Grossman. Because there was no new problems the visit was short, and there isn't too much to talk about this time, but I can't complain about "no problems" Yea. It was just a yearly check up because in the past there have been very minor issues, and the doctor has always taken care of the issues.

September 10, 2014

I have to admit, I'm dealing with a paradigm shift. My previous physician, who is now retired, was very aggressive in hitting every little spot with liquid nitrogen, marking me up with red blisters all over my head, face and arms. Dr. Grossman didn't do any of that, which now having talked to others, seems like the right approach.

August 29, 2014

I have been seeing Dr. Douglass Grossman for approximately 8 years. He has always described my condition clearly and has made suggestions for maintaining or improving my health.

August 25, 2014

Very good information was provided by Dr. Grossman about signs of melanoma.

August 18, 2014

Both as a patient and as a referring physician, I have been pleased with the care provided by the U of Utah health care system. I still feel that a summary of the care provided to patients needs to be sent to referring physicians on a more reliable basis.

August 17, 2014

The Grossman is a great doctor and I have been seeing him for several years. He is caring and informative. He also listens to his patients and spends as much needed time with them until they feel they have gotten all the care they need.

August 02, 2014


July 07, 2014

A very good experience as a result of Dr. Grossman's information on the given care and the necessary information for subsequent treatment via the Hospital and home treatment.

July 07, 2014

I have already recommended Dr. Grossman to several people. I have high confidence in him and his staff. I appreciate the card he hands out to patients with good sunblock information on it. He always uses hand sanitizer upon entering the rooms. Also I feel protected during the exam as he always tries to keep privacy intact. He is great and trusted!

July 04, 2014

Dr. Grossman is the best!

June 24, 2014

Very good experience and Dr. Grossman explained in detail all procedures he implemented and forecast for future follow up.

June 19, 2014

I have recommended the Huntsman Cancer Center to friends and family.

June 09, 2014

Dr. Grossman Was caring and professional as are all the staff at Huntsman. could not ask for better care.

May 23, 2014

excellent physician patient skills

May 11, 2014

have always had a pleasant experience with dr. Grossman and have the atmost confidence in him

April 23, 2014

Dr. Douglas Grossman always does a thorough skin check head to toe.

March 21, 2014

totally dependable and ecellent dr. kind concerned attentive

March 20, 2014

Felt like provider was rushed and did not have time too discuss much about what I was being seen for and my questions.

March 17, 2014

the treatment and care received was comforting and allayed my concerns

March 14, 2014

I appreciate the ability to see Dr. Grossman, and his knowledge and expertise.

February 12, 2014

I appreciate having Dr. Grossman on my team.

February 01, 2014

Offered treatment alternatives. I should've asked for more detailed info about the optional scalp medication. Pharmacist filled in the blanks.

January 27, 2014

Very intelligent and easy to talk to. He asked appropriate questions. Sometimes would ask a question then switch to another topic before getting a chance to answer. So, was much easier to answer with yes or no.

January 03, 2014

Dr. Grossman and his staff are always highly professional, concerned and competent. I am especially impressed with Dr. Grossman's availability for biopsy appointments on short notice. This is very reassuring.

December 18, 2013

this was a visit to discuss a problem that had come up and Dr Grossman was very helpful in our discussion

November 28, 2013

Dr Grossman is always professional, thorough and efficient.

November 21, 2013

All aspects of this appointment were very favorable. Yes, I will recommend!

November 15, 2013

I know I'm in great hands with Dr. Grossman. I really trust his expertise and he gives me great peace of mind. I will keep coming to him for as long as I can.

November 11, 2013

He's very knowledgeable and helpful at explaining what to look for.

November 08, 2013

Dr.Grossman is great. Even though this was a follow-up exam, he took all the time he needed, was through, and gave me excellent information about my prognosis and continued care.

November 01, 2013

Appreciated the explanations and time Dr. Grossman spent with me; he did not seem as rushed this year as last.

October 28, 2013

I am telling everyone I know about the Huntsman. I live in a state where health care is very poor. Clinics and hospitals are horribly understaffed, wait times are beyond ridiculous, and staff are usually poorly educated, stretched too thin, and rude with patients. What a tremendous difference at the Huntsman. I was amazed.

October 25, 2013

Provider always seemes rushed...

October 21, 2013

Rushed. Didn't get to ask all the questions I had. Good for covering all the serious concerns, though.

October 16, 2013

I think Dr Grossman is a great doctor, he listens, he informs, and he cares.

September 23, 2013


September 23, 2013

I have recommended your clinic

September 09, 2013

The nurse was willing to answer my questions afterwards, since I was not totally prepared for what happened to me. It was done very quickly and efficiently by the doctor, yet, I felt it was just done without much explanation. I would have liked some more details, but I did not feel like I could ask the doctor. He was very nice and courteous, yet seemed rushed.

September 09, 2013

Dr. Grossman was very professional and performed the procedure with care and sensitivity to my personal needs and concerns

September 02, 2013

I love this clinic. They are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient! They keep us totally informed about our conditions and treatments. The wait time is always minimal and that is so very appreciated.

August 23, 2013

A very good and comforting visit

August 19, 2013

The entire visit was conducted in a very professional, but friendly atmosphere.

August 12, 2013

Dr. Grossman tried to strike up a casual conversation, but then wasn't interested in my responses. I know he's busy, but if he wants to act like he's interested in my life as a retiree, he should listen when I answer and not be pre-occupied.

July 29, 2013

my initial surgery was at huntsman and this is my fourth of 6 month checks, all my experiences have been great. I love all the people at the Huntsman Center and I am thankful that this wonderfully run center is in Salt Lake City.

July 23, 2013

Dr. Grossman is amazing. He is so great and understanding of his patients needs. He is very personable and a good listener. He is also very good at discussing treatment options and explaining everything he is doing. He also called me personally today with my pathology results and to make a clear plan of my treatment options. He was also very clear about wanting to see me sooner (6 month) for follow up. I think he is the best and would recommend him to anyone.

July 22, 2013

Dr. Grossman is excellent.

July 03, 2013

The exam seemed rushed. I did not get to ask him questions about my scalp problems.

July 03, 2013

I will always recommend Dr. Grossman. I trust his judgement and knowledge on skin cancers and screening. He gave me a handout of info on sunscreen which is great. Very smart and have all the confidence in him as my dermatologist.

June 17, 2013

He said I would have results in a couple of days - he called me personally when he said he would. I was so relieved that I didn't have to wait until after the weekend.

June 17, 2013

Dr. Grossman is an excellent doctor and a consummate professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

April 30, 2013

I have visited with Dr. Grossman every six months for 9 years and always found him to be thorough, professional and informative. We have almost become friends now. My visits with him and the staff are as comfortable as possible for the nature of the visit. My concerns are always welcome and discussions helpful. I am always invited to call at any time if I need to have something checked. I know that he would fit me into his schedule if it was needed. He is very interested in making sure we do not miss anything that leads to another surgery.

April 29, 2013

i can add nothing other than to say perfect

April 29, 2013

Dr. Grossman not only does his exam, he is willing to help lift the patient from his wheelchair to the exam chair and back--clearly above and beyond what most doctors do. He also spends probably twice the time with him.

April 01, 2013

Dr. Grossman and Dr. Bowen are personable, thorough and always take time to explain things completely to my satisfaction. I trust their care and would not consider going anywhere else for my dermatology needs.

March 26, 2013

My only negative comment is that my exam still seems too hasty. I have a large number of moles and it takes more time to look at my whole body carefully enough.

March 11, 2013

Dr. Grossman is very knowledgeable & kind.

March 07, 2013

very pleased with the care provided

March 05, 2013

great followup

February 26, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Grossman/Huntsman Cancer Institute to others who wish to receive the care/services I am receiving, and I will continue to do so.

February 25, 2013

Dr. Grossman is friendly and very knowledgable.

February 20, 2013

Dr. Grossman even offered to instruct family member on what skin changes to note.

February 11, 2013

Both my daughter and I came for initial appts. I have had 2 different melanomas and my daughter was extremely anxious about the appt. The doctor quickly put her mind at ease and presented the option of body mapping to check the atypical moles. I have recommended this doctor to my other daughters who will come in for body mapping as well.

January 29, 2013

I appreciate the chance to see Dr Grossman for annual follow-up.

January 29, 2013

I always know I am in good hands with Dr. Grossman.

January 28, 2013

I'm always impressed with the access, responsiveness and speed of follow up from this clinic. It couldn't be any better!

January 21, 2013

FIrst time for me to see Dr. Grossman. I appreciated the time he spent. He didn't appear to be rushed and was thorough and listened carefully to me. PA Scerpico has been seeing me every 6 months for about 2 years now. Each time i see him I am astounded by the compassion, support, detailed explanations and over all care he puts into my appointments. I feel blessed and lucky each time i visit Hunstman based on the care i get from PA Scerpics. This feeling is supported by the front desk staff at Clinic D. Also the the overall cleanliness of the facility adn beautiful finishes and good food help too!

January 14, 2013

I had never been to that clinic or seen that doctor before, yet the nurse and doctor saw on my chart that it said I had been there before. That made me worry a bit that they had the wrong chart. I've never had a dermatology check before so I have nothing to compare it to, but I don't feel like I got a very thorough exam because he didn't look very well at every part of my body. I guess he saw enough though. An administrator asked if she could sit and observe the exam so she and the nurse were sitting on a small sofa in the exam room and it felt weird - like I was sitting in someone's living room while they sat there watching without assisting or commenting.

January 05, 2013

Dr. Grossman is a very good doctor, he is responsive and honest in his conversations with me. I appreciate this in him, and those working with him. The University of Utah is lucky to have a fine Doctor like Grossman.

December 22, 2012

Dr. Grossman is a great doctor. He has been taking care of me for quite some time. He is friendly courteous and proessional at all times. He is a good communicator.

December 04, 2012

Dr Grossman is a professional of the highest standard.

December 03, 2012

Dr. Grossman is always friendly, professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and shows genuine concern for me as a patient. He is thorough and thoughtful with his patients.

November 29, 2012

Some of my concerns were not really given much attention.

November 19, 2012

over all very good

November 07, 2012

A most efficient and caring facility for what can sometimes be a negative medical reason for coming. Replaces hope and ease with fear and great trepidation.

November 03, 2012

I think dr Grossman is one of the best doctors I've ever seen

October 31, 2012

I am confident that I had the best of the services directly administered to my condition

October 30, 2012

Dr. Grossman is good at what he does, so in that sense I feel confident in his care. However, he did not listen well to me, and seemed to be in a hurry.

October 23, 2012

Dr. Grossman was very friendly to me and my wife. After the body exam, he showed my wife what signs of mole growths, to look for! He was more open and informative than in past. In the past, he seemed preoccupied with other concerns!

October 15, 2012

Dr. Grossman is superb. I have great confidence in him and I like the way he dealt with me.

September 17, 2012

Dr. Grossman tries very hard to make this as good experience as possible.

September 06, 2012

He was thorough with the examination a d questions and answers. I felt that my worries were taken care of and that I could trust his judgement.

August 28, 2012

excellent provider and facility.

August 09, 2012

Dr. Grossman is a good listener and a credit to the Dept.

August 08, 2012

I felt a bit rushed. My questions were answered but somewhat abruptly. Doctor disappeared at end of examination as if he were late for another appointment. I would have liked him to say: "Do you have any further questions or concerns?"

July 31, 2012

Dr Grossman has been seeing me for over 10 years and in that time have diagnosed basal cell and melanoma. I honestly believe without their mole mapping program, these cancerous moles may not have been caught in an early, treatable stage. I can't say en

I Really appreciate Dr. Grossman - his professionalism, how thorough he is, how personable he is, and I feel I can ask ANY question (even though it seems a little embarrassing to me to ask) he still is extremely patient and answers each question very straightforward yet kindly.

Sometimes I get the impression from my physician that he thinks I'm overreacting/ overly anxious

Dr. Grossman included me in the decision making process, this was excellent. He proposed that my husband check my skin monthly, which was good. He combined ths visit with my annual follow up tests, which was very helpful.

exam was a little hasty, skipped my scalp

I am a little concerned about a little pink mole, on my top right hand, that was of little conern to me or the doctor that has turned out to be cancerous and will need futher surgery!

March 10, 2012

It was a checkup, so I have no "follow up" until next year.

February 25, 2012

Doctor didn't take any attention to my problem. Very rude and was not listening to anything. Spent only 5 or 10 minutes that too in hurry.

February 25, 2012

Dr. Grossman is always great!

I have already recommended Dr. Grossman to a friend. I am very pleased with the care he provided and I will be back each year for my follow up visits.

I appreciate the chance to see Dr Grossman

January 04, 2012

I dont feel like the care provider (DR) really cares much for my concerns. I get the feeling like he feels I am waisting his time. Like my concerns are not severe enough to be bothering him.

Academic Bio

Douglas Grossman, MD, PhD, is an investigator in Huntsman Cancer Institute's Melanoma Program and an associate professor in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He is a co-leader of the Cell Response and Regulation Program. He sees patients at risk for melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer, with a special interest in patients who have a personal or family history of melanoma; numerous and/or atypical moles (nevi); a personal history of basal or squamous cell carcinoma; or a history of excessive sun exposure. Grossman runs the Mole Mapping Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute.

Grossman's lab studies the regulatory mechanisms of apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in melanocytes and keratinocytes, and dysregulation of apoptosis in both melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. In addition, they study nevus senescence and the role of UV-induced oxidative stress/damage in the development of melanoma. In collaborative studies with other investigators at Huntsman Cancer Institute, they are developing novel antioxidants to be used as chemopreventive agents in patients at risk for melanoma.

Grossman received his MD and PhD from Baylor College of Medicine, completed an internship at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and completed a dermatology residency at Yale. He remained at Yale for a research fellowship in cancer biology, and then joined Huntsman Cancer Institute and the University of Utah School of Medicine faculty in 2001.
