I highly recommend Dr. Grubman and his office. Wait times were next to nothing and his staff was friendly, attentive, and helpful. Dr. Grubman himself is incredibly experienced and knowledgable - he is a pure professional with a great bedsidemanner, always asking the right questions and taking the time to listen to your answers. He is thorough and you get the sense that he really cares about his patients!

I don't think much of my visit only that it was a waste of time. I didn't get the service I went there for which was to find out what antibiotics I could take for an upcoming dental procedure. He seemedannoyed during our consult with my responses. He wanted to give me a test for an antibiotic that I have avoided my whole life because of a severe reaction I had as a child. He was impatient with my responses during consult and questioning my responses as if I didn't know my own reactions to medications. I thought he was a creep. Consequently, it was a waste of time and money.

A bit of a wait before I was able to see Dr. Grubman, but it was well worth it. Clearly a professional, he was careful to not over-medicate and was both calming and convincing in his diagnosis. I would definitely recommend Dr. Grubman to anyone!

Dr. Grubman was personable and attentive. He listened carefully, took notes, and asked questions while I described my symptoms. Although I was concerned about a single allergy, he ordered a series of blood tests, just to be safe. I am gladhe was so thorough, because the blood tests revealed issues above and beyond my original allergy. A less attentive doctor would not have connected the seemingly unrelated dots in my story and ordered the additional blood tests.

Very personable, down to earth and accessible - I didn't feel rushed out the door or patronized. The office decor is somehat unpreposessing (unrenovated) but in some ways that's feels less important if you're getting good service.

He got the job done - ultimately prescribed medications that finally put my condition at ease. He was sure to have me schedule follow-ups to make sure I was improving, which I appreciated. I was underwhelmed, however, by his bedside manner.He was somewhat rude and seemed irritated to be there.

Dr. Grubman is a very nice and competent allergist. I brought in 17 month old twins and it was clear he's more comfortable with adult patients. Also, his view on child allergies is to completely avoid the allergen rather than discussthe spectrum of allergic reactions, why it's happening, will it get worse/better/same over time, etc. The depth of conversation was limited.

Dr. Grubman is hands down one of the best doctors I've ever encountered. He has great bedside manner and creates a very comfortable space for open dialogue with his patients. He is also extremely knowledgeable and clearly explains your treatmentso that as a patient you are empowered to help yourself as well. I have recommended several friends to him and will continue to do so because he is an absolutely amazing doctor!

Dr. Grubman's office didn't receive my full chart from my previous doctor and didn't follow up with them. He doesn't tell you his plan for treatment, which left me confused and with a LOT of anxiety (surprise, people who can't breatheright have anxiety about being able to breathe!). I am a patient on a speciality medication, and I was approved for twice the dose meant for my height and weight due to the severity of my symptoms and his statement was "I don't know how you got approved for that, you're not that bad" and he sent me off for additional allergy testing without including all the testing need for authorization. His best medical advice? "Get a hotel room" (regarding holidays at a family member's home who has a cat) and "take a second Zyrtec" - Thanks doc, I never thought of that!
