On a personal note, Dr. Grossman has numerous outside interests. Family is very important to him. His wife, Pamela, their 4 daughters, and eight (as of this moment) grandchildren, and their three giant standard poodles Red, Montana, and Lucy – always come first. Besides family and close friends, his interests include golf, working out, traveling, reading and writing, films and film making, collecting fine art, and occasionally painting.
