  • Tiffany Tonasket WA 12.14.12

    Dr. Grady and the urology team at Seattle Children's took care of my granddaughter who was only 1 week old. Dr. Grady did an outstanding job caring for my granddaughter--- and her parents. With an unexpected need for a major surgery in the ealry days of life, Dr. Grady handled her situation so wonderfully. We felt very blessed to have him as her surgeon and would highly recommend him to anyone! He has excellent surgical skills as well as an amazing bedside manner. He will for sure be her surgeon until there is no need for one. Thank you Dr. Grady! You are amazing!!!

  • Renee Snohomish, Wa 07.08.11

    My son has been seen by Dr. Grady and the staff at Childrens even before he was born. Dr. Grady first examined him in person when he was 4 days old and he is now 6. My son has a rare urology condition that Dr. Grady had never seen before. He has performed 4 outstanding reconstruction surgeries on him and he is perfect now. He's an amazing surgeon and his bed side manners are outstanding. My son gets so excited to go see Dr. Grady each year for his follow up appointments. He and my son seem to share a very special connection. At least that's how Dr. Grady always makes us feel. He has always gone above and beyond I would recommend him to anyone!! I feel Dr. Grady is a blessing handed to our family and to my son. I would travel where ever I needed for my son to continue in Dr. Grady's care!! So please Dr. Grady stay at Seattle Childrens until Ethan is 18!!

  • Lauren Fairbanks, Alaska 12.06.10

    Dr. Grady sees my son, Steven, we travel from Alaska for clinic visits. Dr. Grady not only took care of Steven's urological issues, but went the extra mile to connect us with everyone else we needed to see. We always enjoy our visits when we have appointments with Dr. Grady, and want to say thanks for all he has done!
