Dr. Grinsell is amazing with my son. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful while dealing with an active 8 year old. He genuinely cares about my family and remembers important things about our lives. We are incredibly impressed with him.UofU Patient June 24, 2013
Dr. Grinsell was fabulous! He quickly established a good rapport with our 13 year old daughter, who was quite nervous about the appt (as were her parents). He was very thorough and patient. We didn't feel rushed at all. He had a great sense of humor and had looked through my daughter's history and joked around with her about some of the entertaining reports he had read. He was able to quickly pull up records and test results and went over them with us. I would definitely recommend Dr. Grinsell to others, in fact I already have!UofU Patient May 20, 2013
Dr. Grinsell's beside manner is very comfortable and friendly, putting the children at ease. Much appreciated!UofU Patient April 19, 2013
We appreciate how concerned and courtious everyone was. Dr. Grinsell is great and very helpful for stressed mothers as well as the patient. He took time to get background and ensure the best care for our daughter. He also anwered all of our questions and made sure we understood what was happening. He also personally called us to give us updates and discuss further treatment. We couldn't ask for better care during this stressful situation. We know our daughter is in the best hands and care available.UofU Patient February 15, 2013
First comment from Dr was to accuse us of being 15 min late for a 30 min appt, now we have no time to evaluate. I explained we waited 20 min at front desk. They were backed up with only 1 receptionist, we were NOT late. He then said "then its because everyone else was late". He did not appologise for the wait or the comments and seemed irritated the entire appt.UofU Patient January 29, 2013
We were very impressed with the genuineness that Dr. Grinsell showed our son. He was very thorough, and made him feel as close to comfortable as he was going to feel (he has autism, so doctor visits can be hard on him).UofU Patient January 29, 2013

Having gone to a Nephrologist for years in North Carolina whom we loved, I was worried we wouldn't find someone as caring, knowledgeable, or personable. Dr. Grinsell exceeded my expectations.UofU Patient June 18, 2012
I was really impressed with everyone I encountered during this visit. I also loved how everyone treated Spencer and made him feel so comfortable.UofU Patient April 27, 2012
Dr. Grinsell has always been courteous, respectful and talked with me on a level I can understand. He's always shown concern for my daughter and what she's going through. I wish he was closer to us though! :)UofU Patient April 11, 2012
We never feel rushed with Dr. Grinzell. He always takes the time to answer questions and find out how Hyrum is doing. In his words, "He is the best!"UofU Patient April 11, 2012

I know that Dr. Grinsell is an expert in his field. I know he knows what he is doing and will take care of his patients, we just need to have all of the information ourselves to alleviate our concerns.
