Verified Patient Reviews
I am currently undergoing orthodontics treatment with Dr. Grinbaum, and she along with her team have done an amazing job thus far with preparing me for my upcoming oral surgery. Every individual in the clinic is very warm and welcoming, while efficiently ensuring prolonged time is not spent at each appointment.
Dr. Grinbaum was great!
Went through braces for a second time and the experience was great with Dr. Grinbaum, still going back for follow ups and always have a professional and polite experience
Dr. Grinbaum was professional, thorough, and answered all of my questions during the consultation. I enjoyed my visit and look forward to getting work done with her at her office. The staff was also very friendly.
She was very professional.
It was a good visit. Dr. Grinbaum and other members of the team are courteous, professional, and friendly. They were open to any questions and provided all the information I needed. The only problem was the long wait.
Dr. Grinbaum is an amazing orthodontist. She is super personable and skilled. Cheryl, the receptionist, is amazing also. Everything about my treatment from cost to expectations was explained to me with great clarity. I would highly recommend her.
I had a great braces experience with Dr. Grinbaum. I had incognito (behind the teeth) on the top and regular braces on the bottom. She gave very realistic expectations throughout the process (including how long the braces would likely be on for). She takes a lot of care to make sure your teeth look perfect and you're happy with them. Appointments sometimes feel a bit rushed, but the results you get are great.
Dr. Grinbaum was knowledgable and provided me with several options. I went for braces consultation. She took her time, examed my teeth and did a 3D animation of how my teeth would like based on which type of braces i went with. She wasnt in a rush amd her staff was just an knowledgable. Her office manager Cheryl reviewed the financials for each option. All in all a great experience.
She was incredible - i would highly recommend her! knowledgeable, patient (she took time to explain everything) and kind.
Very kind, patient knowledgeable Dr. Takes the time to answer all questions. Highly highly recommend her!
She is so nice, knowledgeable and professional. It's always an easy and painless experience.
You're just not going to find a finer orthodontist in New York. That simple.
Very helpful and answered all my questions. The staff was so kind and welcoming!
She's very knowledgeable, professional, kind and she explains very well. I appreciated she gave me 4 detailed options to address my issue and on top of that she's going to chek with my dental insurance and email me the respons.
She is a doctor who you can trust! She puts all her care and heart into her work and takes an excellent care of her patients. We had an overly positive experience. My teenage son even doesn't mind to wake up early morning to get to the city before the school, he trusts Doctor Grinbaum so very much and always is visiting her with pleasure.
I was visiting Dr. Grinbaum for braces consultation. She was very professional & knowledgable of the options she afforded. She gave me a full breakdown of the what my treatment plan would be along with an estimate of the price. Overall I would say my experience with her was A1 & I am most certainly looking forward to starting my treatment with her. #OnTheRoadToAGreatSmile
Karin is an awesome orthodontist. Very thorough with my Invisalign treatment.
Dr. Grinbaum is great. She takes the time to explain to you what she is doing and never makes you feel rushed when you have additional questions.
Extremely nice and honest Dr. Clean office, friendly staff! I highly recommend this dr. to others.
Let the assistant do almost all the work. Didn't bother to check afterwards and the job was poorly done...
Was all good except for the wait.
I went for a consultation and everyone in the office was incredible nice and helpful. They were very quick to see me and very patient with all of my questions and concerns. They didn't try to hide any of the negatives of braces from me to try and sway my decision and offered additional options to lower the cost and/or change the comfort level of my mouth during the treatment. When I'm ready to take the plunge, I'll be back!
She has been so wonderful, simply THE BEST! I got invisalign with her and she made me feel so comfortable and informed me thoroughly of my choices. I couldn't be happier with my results and they aren't even finished yet!
Love Dr Grinbaum! She is great.
Very professional but vey friendly as well
Dr. Grinbaum was amazing. She took the time to talk me through all of my options and was incredibly kind and patient through the whole process.
She is the best. The most accommodating caring Doctor you'll find.
Ortho was great but receptionist wasn't great. Tried having me fill out paperwork even though I booked on Zd. Didn't have water and her response was, "something wrong with the water".
So nice and very knowledgeable.
Blown away by the level of service. Professional, yet so friendly and comforting. Highly recommend!
She was so great!!! She gave me all the options I needed. I've had braces before but My top teeth have shifted over the years and my bottom teeth have stayed perfect due to a permenant retainer. I've been to another dentist that told me I would have to get braces on my bottom teeth again even though they're still perfectly straight. Dr. Grinbaum said there would be no need to get bottom braces because they're already straight! Such a relief. She gave me a treatment plan and went over pricing options and payment plans. She's awesome I would recommend her to everyone.
She was extremely friendly and professional. She got right to the point and gave options for treatment.
I am 25 years old and just finished roughly a year of incognito braces through Grinbaum Orthodontics. I could not be happier with my new smile. I did not have braces as a kid and had previously tried Invisalign but with limited success. Dr. Grinbaum and her team are incredibly warm and professional. I felt relaxed knowing I was in good hands. I highly recommend!
The doctor and staff were very nice and welcoming. Dr Grinbaum was very knowledgable, explained things clearly, answered any questions I had and was easy to talk to. The office is very clean and well maintained. Treatment options, their prices, and my insurance coverage amount were all emailed to me later on the same day of my appointment.
She is very kind and incredibly helpful
Very knowledgeable about the different braces styles while being upfront about the prices. Answered all of my questions and was a pleasure to talk to.
Waited for about 30 minutes, other than that, the consultation was informative and Dr. Grinbaum was very patient answering my questions.
Dr. Grinbaum is amazing! And the whole office is great, too. I was 10 mins behind because of train delays and the secretary was incredibly nice about it. I was seen right away and Dr. Grinbaum answered all of my questions and gave me some great cleaner for my retainers. So rare to find a good doctor after just moving, so I am really happy that I found Dr. Grinbaum on my first try. Highly recommend!
Once I was seen, this was a really quick appointment--Dr. Grinbaum and her assistants were extremely helpful and efficient. If you want to see whether your insurance covers a specific procedure or item, call the office and have them put in the request a couple weeks beforehand! And weekend days seem pretty hectic for the office overall.
This is my third time to see Dr Grinbaum. She is very professional, knowledgeable, experienced, proficient, and straightforward. Anyway she is perfect. I totally trust her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an orthodontist.
Karin had an easy and clear bedside manner. She listened to my concerns about my retainer and immediately identified the problem. She offered me three reasonable options and helped me weigh the reasoning behind each. The office was clean and bright. The staff were all polite. I couldn't have asked for a better time at the orthodontist after a long time away.
She is very nice and very professional. I like her.
Dr. Grinbaum was very professional and patient. I went in for an invisalign consultation she gave me her honest opinion about what would work best for my situation and the price points for each. I did not end up getting braces but the visit was very informative.
The office is very well run and they follow up-- What a rare find!
The doctor was very personable, professional and informative. She covered all the orthodontic options thoroughly. Couldn't ask for more.
I gave this office very high marks even though they did not accept my insurance. My only feedback is to update what insurance you do and do not accept on ZocDoc as this would save both yourselves and potential clients time.
Very professional, nice and quick. Receptionist was very pleasant and helpful.
Loved Dr. K! She's super quick and very sweet :-)
Very pleasurable experience. Shannon rules and is very polite, and Dr. Grinbaum explained my orthodontic options thoroughly.
She was very friendly and very eager to help me understand the options available to me.
Friendly, thorough and competent. What more could you want??
She was very thorough. She reviewed all of the options, Explained the process, timeframes, cost, advantages, and disadvantages. She was very professional but personable. I read all of the reviews before scheduling and everyone shared the same experience that I had. Typically I dont trust reviews but all of these were dead on. I will be scheduling my appointment soon. I would reccomend everyone go see her. Just save up for the deposit (which is typical regardless who you go too).
I left Dr. Grinbaum's office slightly in shock at how easy and pleasant the appointment was. The office staff were extremely helpful and efficient, and Dr. Grimbaum saw me with almost zero wait time. Dr. Grinbaum was super friendly and professional, and I couldn't be happier with her work fixing my retainer. Highly recommend!!
Dr.Grinbaum is great! She was very patient and provided me with really good advice regarding my concerns. The rest of the staff was really helpful and kind, which I loved!
She was very professional and explained my options thoroughly.
It was awesome.
Karin is friendly, courteous and a professional. She was patient with me and explored all the treatment options available to me, explaining time frame, prices and any initial discomfort I might experience. She also recommended a few dentists around the area I could register with for regular dental check-up. I received an exceptional service from her.
The Dr. is professional, knowledgeable and patient. She answers all your questions and explains everything clearly. I highly recommend her to anyone needing braces, retainers, bite plates, etc.
She is very informative and has great bedside manner her staff is veryprofessional
genuinely nice. gave me a free consultation and even polished my teeth when i asked her about cosmetic work.
Karin is very professional and gave me a load of advise and food for thought. My best dental visit ever! Thanks
Dr. Grinbaum is professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly nice. I felt completely comfortable trusting her with my orthodontic treatment, and haven't second-guessed a single decision yet, which is very unlike me.
I got my incognito braces last month. She is great and very friendly. Her bright smile makes any kinda pain go away.
The Doctor was very professional and kind. I might have waited for a bit, but she apologized for her busy day and took her time to answer every question I had. I highly highly recommend the Dr.
Nothing - love her.
Dr. Grinbaum is absolutely amazing! She is very sweet and extremely professional. I highly recommend her!
She is excellent. She truly listens.She is very smart and gives you her opinion with advice for care immediately. She was right on target for me. What other orthodontics ignored, she immediately pointed out.
Can you say heaven sent! After numerous failed attempts at getting braces.Dr. Grinbaum was everything I've been hoping for. She was sweet, knowledgable but most importantly HONEST. From the moment I stepped in for my consultation I was amazed at how professional and sincere she was. Of course I had no hesitations to start this life changing experience with her. First week with braces were painful to say the least, but Dr. Grinbaum was there for any questions or concerns. Point blank, if you want someone who genuinely cares about your teeth just as much as you do... Go see Dr. Grinbaum.
Fantastic and friendly service. Got to meet with Dr. Grinbaum even before my schedules appointment time. Awesome!
Fantastic!! Seen right away...she made my daughter feel real comfortable in getting braces.
Very knowledgable. Highly recommend.
Dr. Grinbaum was very honest about costs and timelines for the various treatments. She walked me through the options and described the various drawbacks as it related to adult patients. Overall experience was great and looking forward to continuing treatment with her.
Great. I went in expecting to buy something and was advised to save my money! Plus, saw me on a Saturday.
Awesome Orthodontist! Loved her.
She was very professional, and explained me all details. Dr. Grinbaum rocks!
Our visit with Dr. Grinbaum was wonderful. She was extremely welcoming and friendly, which immediately put my daughter and I at ease. She was patient and offered a lot of information. She took the time to answer my daughters questions; all of them. My daughter left feeling very excited and I left feeling very optomisitc and informed.
My visit was very calming and helpful. Dr. Grinbaum saw me right away and answered all my questions and concerns. The office is in a very convenient location, clean, and modern. A big thumbs up for being open on the weekends!
Dr. Grinbaum is extremely caring, understanding, and explains everything well. She's also straightforward about my treatment and definitely puts me at ease!!
