The team was great and I really like that they listened to me, asked my thoughts, and what I would like to achieve in the plan instead of creating a plan and putting in orders. There was real communication and I really appreciated it.

This specialty office is amazing. Dr Grosberg has helped me tremendously. I cannot, however recommend them, as they are extremely busy and I've had to book beyond the 12 weeks for treatment.

I was in awe of Dr. Brian Grossberg from my first visit. I'm incredibly impressed with his compassion and ability to incorporate his patient's concerns/wishes into his ultimate medical decision(s) and his understanding 'the human condition' and how to navigate those issues.
