Ratings for Dr. Morris T. Grabie
My 95 y.o. grandpa who has chronic heart failure was seeing this MD. During one of the visits doctor displayed almost rude behavior: upon walking into the room he did not even acknowledged my grandpa (no "hi", no "how are you"). Doctor seemed to be very irritated, rushed into the room, asked about my grandpa's current medications. Unfortunately, grandpa forgot the list at home. That was the beginning of the nightmare. Doctor literary asked us why we came if we have no list of current meds. Then he sent my grandpa to the lab to get current blood test to see how much Lasix he should take. That was the last time we ever heard from MD. We tried to reach the doctor for more than a week, calling twice a day (!!!), to see what the blood test results were and if grandpa's dose of Lasix should be adjusted, but the doctor would not return phone calls. His secretary said that MD already called us and talked to us, but it's a lie, since I have only cell phone and every call is recorded, even a missed one. Finally, doctor's secretary told us that doctor forwarded the results of this blood test to granpa's PCP and that "the doctor doesn't wish to see this patient any longer", because "we are being rude!". Us! being rude!! for trying to get hold of md!!!! Unbelievable!!! I have never seen a doctor who refusing to talk to a patient. What kind of a human being is he?! Rude, unprofessional and horrible. We will look for another nephro doctor.
Dr. Grabie has been ourPCP for over 20 years. I'm a 70 year old male and always been treated courteously, professionally, and accurately. Things that have always helped is to be prepared with issues to be discussed, asking questions that are relevant to whats going on, follow through with referrals as prescribed, and being your own advocate to medical care and treatments. Our experience with Dr. Grabie leads my wife to refer most of her geriatric clients through Dr. Grabies office and follows up with his referrals. He is a caring physician but demanding and exacting in what he prescribes or who he provides referrals for. He is a top echelon provider and we count on his expertise and guidance. Those that have written negative ratings here may not have had reasonable expectations of what was needed or were unprepared to discuss their issues appropriately. I highly rank his and his staff on everything they accomplish.
Dr. Grabie was rude and uncaring about my 87 year old mother's condition. He did not attempt to a certain the cause of her medical condition but instead put her on pain medication to mask the problem. He should not be practicing medicine. If you need care, you are better off going to webmd rather than Dr. Grabie.
Dr Grabie is rude and does not care about his patients. It's all about business. When my mother was at Saint Johns hospital after she fell and broke her hip, he insisted that she go to Seaport Nursing Home for physical therapy before she was ready to go home. It was horrible. I ran into him a couple days after she moved there from the hospital and he was in the office with a man who looked out at me, made a comment in another language and laughed. They ignored me and might as well have shut the door in my face. Luckily I was able to move her to another facility right down the street. NIGHT and DAY!
My mother ended up under his care while in the hospital. He was impossible to get in touch with even during medical emergencies. When finally we did get in touch with him, he was unable to explain any of the medical care or even to answer the simplest questions.
One year ago I was admitted at Santa Monica UCLA Hospital on an emergency basis. Dr. Morris Grabie was the internist assigned to my case. He wrote four reports during my hospital stay, three of them had medical inaccuracies and irrelevant personal/subjective comments. After nine months of following UCLA regulations to have Dr. Grabie amend HIS multiple mistakes he has systematically refused to do so. I submitted letters and reports from other doctors (including UCLA physicians)who opposed his inaccurate statements but he still refuses to make any correction. Fortunately I will be able to take this case to a higher level but I wonder how any elderly person unable to think clearly could defend himself/herself from the dangerous consequences of this type of false, incorrect reporting. Based on my personal experience Dr. Grabie should not be part of the medical staff of a prestigious hospital. In my opinion, he is the worst doctor I have ever met in my long life.
