WAITED TWO MOTHS TO SEE HIM. DUE TO MARKET PLACE MISTAKE, I HAD TO PAT OUT OF POCKET $385 FOR CONSULT. $125+$35 FOR FOLLOW UPS. TOLD HE DID NOT WRITE SCRIPTS ON FIRST VISIT, BUT WOULD ON FOLLOWING WEEK, AS LONG AS YOU HAVE YOUR MRI'S AND PROVEN HISTORY. I GAVE THEM ALL. DAY AFTER I SAW HIM, HE SENT REGISTERED LETTER THAT HE COULD NOT TREAT MY ISSUES (SAME AS EVERYONE IN WAITING ROOM, BY THE WAY). THEY DID NOT EVEN SEND MY URINE TO BE TESTED, WHICH FORM THE $385 CHARGE WAS $35. HE IS A FAKE, PHONY, WHAT KIND OF PHYSIATRIST DOES NOT TREAT DISC BULGES, OR DISC DEGENERATION, OR TEARS? HE GAVE NO REASON WHY HE COULD NOT HELP. HE DID NOT PROVIDE NAMES OF ANY OTHER DOCTORS WHO COULD HELP.
I think that the most important and memorable thing that occurred, was that both the doctor and his wife cared and including his technician, they all listened. Basically 88-90% of what I said to him was transcribed exactly without a machine, just his ears listening. He cares about his patients. He did his best to make me as comfortable as possible even though it was an extremely uncomfortable test.
DR. Gruskin is one of the best in his field, caring,follow up and thoroughness. One of the first specialists I've met who listens to the patient and cares for that need with great thought and kindness. I wish he were closer to where I live - I traveled 6 hours several times for his expertise.
