January 8, 2020 7:24 AM

She's a wonderful dr.

December 27, 2019 12:15 PM

I really appreciate that this practice always seems to run on time. My time is valuable and fitting medical appointments in can be challenging. Knowing that I will be seen promptly is a big plus.

November 19, 2019 8:11 AM

good experience

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

As per usual it was an excellent experience.

November 7, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Judith Gravdal has been my primary physician for many years. She consistently provides a thorough evaluation of my health & lifestyle & a caring personal responsive delivery of services.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

When I arrived the front desk was friendly and kind. I had a short waiting period before seeing the doctor. I like my doctor very much, I wish she worked full time or had more time availablity.

August 13, 2019 7:00 PM


July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good.

June 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. G. practices/continues to practice for the RIGHT reasons: NOT money, NOT ego, but a sincere desire to help people. This is obvious to me every time I talk to her.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM


May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent always

March 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Gravdal is a good listener. I feel comfortable sharing relevant information with her. She's compassionate & committed to her patients.

February 12, 2019 6:00 PM

The doctor listened to my concern even though my labs from recent physical exam were good.

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

My experience & relationship with this dr., is top of the line, she listens and cares and pushes for follow thru going forward with patient and other medical service facilities if needed - I trust her -

November 19, 2018 6:00 PM

Terrific - as always. Dr. Gravdal is my rock.

November 16, 2018 6:00 PM

I am a new patient and this was my first visit to the office and to the advocate system. Overall my experience was positive and the people I interacted with were helpful, friendly and overall professional. As this was a first time visit, I needed to fill in various forms with my information. Though not as important...the layout and the condition of the forms were messy and the words fading as if they had been photocopied too many times.

October 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Gravdal has cared for me for years now and I feel blessed with her friendship.

September 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Gravdal has been my primary MD for many years. She remains knowledgeable - compassionate. I highly recommend her. Getting appointments can be challenging.

August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Gravdal has been my Family Dr. for quite a few years. I always prefer to see her but sometimes when it's an emergency I have to see an associate. Recently I ended up in the hospital & I had to see an associate for the follow up but she did stop by while I was there to personally ask me how I was doing.

August 5, 2018 7:00 PM

She is very helpful and provides a lot of information. I like that she will consider a conservative approach to issues first.

June 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Very nice Dr.

June 5, 2018 7:00 PM

My best provider I ever had. She is easy to talk to me about my health issues.

April 26, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. G practices medicine the right way, with great concern for the patient, and for the RIGHT reasons (NOT ego or money). I hope she does NOT retire any time soon.

April 22, 2018 7:00 PM

Appreciate Dr Gravdal always washes her hands before touching me. She always seems so rush at the end to go over the paper work or documents after getting them from the office.

April 9, 2018 7:00 PM


February 12, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Judith Gravdal always does an outstanding job in taking care of me and seems to get the referrals necessary to get the answers to take care of my medical problems.

February 2, 2018 6:00 PM

dr g is a great physician. I really enjoy going to see her. her support staff is good. I was a little upset that they called my home phone and left a message but didn't attempt to call my alternative number with test results. In the future they should attempt to call the second number if the person does not pick up the original number.

December 22, 2017 6:00 PM

I haven't had a medical professional take so much time trying to get to know me and my medical issues and concerns since I was a child with a family doctor who made house calls! It was quite refreshing. I sincerely felt like Doctor Gravdal was motivated by a desire to help people.

December 1, 2017 6:00 PM


November 28, 2017 6:00 PM

Always a good experience to see Dr. Gravdal.
