20/02/12 3 2 3 3 He was the best Dr. until he allowed me to have a constent contraction due to not monitoring the machines. That caused my placenta to tear, me to start bleeding to death, my son's blood pressure to drop. I also had am allergic reation to epidural and passed out due to lack of oxygen. My son now has developemental delays, stutters and needs to see alot of different specialists. He was the friendliest, best dr I ever had till that happened. meet him in camrose one day and it was a shock! I moved away and he's now moved close? weird.  Respond

01/05/09 5 4 5 5 He is the most wonderful doctor in the world. He is the only doctor I have ever gone to in Camrose that seems to really CARE about you and your concerns. He was there for almost all of my labour, missed the delivery by 6 minutes because he had to go do hip surgery. The next doctor on call didn't even bother to come in to relieve him and luckily the OB/GYN was walking the hall and ran in to catch my little girl. I absolutely love Dr.G and hope he will be on call for my next child! I have seem him in the ER for both myself and my daughter and he's always been extremely knowledgeable, polite, helpful and encouraging! You just CAN'T get a better doctor than him.  Respond

28/08/08 5 5 5 5 An awesome doctor. Dr. G was my doctor in High Level and is greatly missed. It took a number of years for me to become pregnant and he knew how much I wanted a baby. I have never before or after been seen by a doctor that was as caring, compasstionate helpful. Through out my labour Dr. G spent much time with me reassuring me that all was going well.  Respond

05/02/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Groenwald was our family doctor when he was in High Level, AB. He is by far one of the nicest, compassionate, kind doctor that we ever had. If i could contact him i would say "Thank you Dr. Groenwald for the wonderful care that u did for my uncle". He would come in to the hosptial even when he wasn't on call to see my uncle who had cancer...you are one of the best doctors that we had in High Level.  Respond

14/11/07 4 4 5 5 This Dr is awesome, very personable. He remebered me from being in 6 months earlier, by name and case. This is how all Dr. should strive to be!  Respond

28/05/07 5 5 5 Dr. G was my anesthesiologist when I was in inactive labor(even though my contractions were 8 seconds apart) with my twins, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to stick a needle in my back!! He is by far the best doctor I have encountered, he is compassionate, kind, and genuinely interested in his patient's well-being. He was not the one to deliver my babies, but he actually came to check on us a couple times during our hospital stay and was actually interested in how we were all doing. Every doctor should strive to be like this man! If he were to open his own practice, I will definetly be the first in line!!  Respond

25/05/07 3 2 2 I agree this doctor's bedside manner is great....until everything is not running smoothly. I saw Dr. G for my first pregnancy. I ended up with a 39 hour labour, a baby with a 'corner' on the back of her head where he tried to turn her with the vacuum, a bottom that was ripped to shreds because I couldn't push out my large-headed, large baby who was coming face up and no one figured that out until it was too late. I was refused a c-section, lied to about how far I was dilating (to 'encourage' me), and not told ahead of time when he broke my water. At the point when it became apparent that I was in dire difficulty and the baby was not appearing, 3 more doctors were called in and Dr. G faded into the background. Another doctor took over and by the grace of God (no thanks to the doctors present) I was finally able to push out my baby. After that experience and 6 months to heal from it, I don't put much stock in 'bedside manner' anymore. I will take actual knowledge and honesty.  Respond

17/05/07 5 5 5 i saw him once in a walk in clinic! he was AMAZING! my only complaint is that he does not work at the clinic in camrose so you cannot see him as a regular doctor which is too bad because he is by far one of the nicest doctors i have met and i agree that he should be teaching other doctors about bedside manner....especially in camrose where finding a doctor with compassion is like finding a pig that can fly!  Respond

17/04/07 5 5 5 THIS IS THE DOCTOR OF ALL DOCTORS. HE SHOULD BE TRAINING OTHER DOCTORS RE: BEDSIDE MANNER, COMPASSION, CARING, KINDNESS AND ABOVE ALL ELSE KNOWLEDGE. I HAVE SEEN HIM AT ST. MARYS IN CAMROSE. HE WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. HE REMEMBERED THAT I HAD AN OPERATION (AS I HAVE DEALT WITH HIM OUTSIDE OF HIS PROFESSION, THROUGH THE COMPANY I WORK FOR) AND HE ENQUIRED AS TO HOW MY SURGERY WENT! WOW! NICE TO BE REMEMBERED. HE IS JUST AS KIND AND CARING WHEN NOT ON DUTY. I WISH ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE THAT HE WOULD OPEN HIS OWN PRACTICE HERE IN CAMROSE. WE ARE A VERY FORTUNATE LITTLE CITY TO HAVE HIM.  Respond

03/04/07 5 5 5 He was great! I had Dr. Groenwald at the prenatal clinic, as well as when I first went into labour. He was very thorough and gentle when conducting his examination, and did not make me feel the least bit uncomfortable -- cosidering the situation.  Respond

27/03/07 5 5 5 I and my husband were patients of Dr. Groenwald when he was practicing in High Level, AB. We have never met a more compassionate or caring doctor since. You always felt that he really cared about you as a person and had lots of time for you and was willing to take time to explain everything to you. He was a heartfelt loss to the High Level patients he left behind and to me and my husband as we moved away a year before he moved to Camrose. If he had a practice in Camrose we would be first in line to go back to him. A very caring wonderful Doctor. I really wish we had more like him.  Respond

17/03/07 5 5 5 He gave me an epidural for the delivery of my son and was very thorough. My blood pressure became very high after receiving my epidural and he stayed with me the whole time to make sure all was well. He should have been paid for my delivery rather than the physician that did eventually make it to just catch my son. He also attends the pre-natal clinic and he is very personable and I really wish he had a practice in Camrose as well!  Respond
