Physician-client consultation time is finite. The exceptional physician finds ways to make his impacts scalable, leveraging results beyond that finite time, to the greatest client benefit. I’m very appreciative to Dr. Grabenstein for excelling at this art. Happy Doctor’s Day!
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
As a member of my MDVIP-affiliated practice I will be able to personalize your healthcare by emphasizing prevention and wellness. The ability to obtain same day evaluations will allow timely treatments to be carried out so that more serious consequences are less likely to develop.
I share my practice with my wife, Diane Fabricius, MD. We both care for people in Oak Ridge and surrounding areas and are affiliated with Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge.

My doctor talks to me and involves me in my health care decisions. It is nice to have a doctor talk to me - not at me. It is also nice to visit the office and not be stuck in a waiting room with sick people. Service is better since the office moved to MDVIP.
I want to thank Dr Grabenstein for his help after the death of my husband.

For almost 20 years I have , some times frequently, called Jeffrey with a list of facts about my immediate disease or pain. In a gentle, knowledgeable manner he tells me about reality which may use additional facts. That knowledge always relaxed my anxieties, and follow instructions with a smile on my face.
My doctor is excellent caring for my health problems, spends plenty of time to listen to my concerns and applies an answer to all my concerns, it might be medication or just adds advice to them.I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Grabenstien as my primary physician. Must add when I need to speak to him by phone, he is prompt returning my calls.
