My heart is so heavy! I can't believe this.. Dr. Grosch will always be the BEST doctor in my eyes. Every time I saw him he was so proud of telling me stories about his motorcycle and kids.. He loved his family so much! I've been a patient of his since I was a kid. He performed a few surgeries for me and I saw him weekly for years to get my allergy shots. He TRULY was a kind, funny, caring, generous man! With a heavy heart my condolences and prayers go to his wife, family and girls. Rest in peace to a doctor who had a heart of gold! You will be forever remembered for your kindness and love..
