We are so sad to hear about Dr Grello. He was the nicest, kindest Doctor I've ever met. He talked me through two very difficult emergencies, one including a fever of 105. He always knew what was wrong and made you feel that everything would be ok. The world has lost a great Doctor as well as a great person. My thoughts and prays go out to his family during this very difficult time. He will forever be remembered and we will miss him very much ...God Bless
