Dr. Avie A Grunspan has the following 2 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Grunspan is one of the most caring doctors I have ever had or witnessed. He gives above and beyond all of his time and attention to the patient. I felt completely comfortable and confident with Dr. Grunspan's personal and professional skills. I would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing sleep issues. Wonderful man and doctor!
If you rely on a CPAP machine, there are usually issues. It gets a bit complicated, and I needed a doctor who would listen to what wasn't working well for me and help me find a solution. Dr. Grunspan is great. He listened, took time to ask questions for clarifications, suggested we try such and such and said if that didn't work, we would try something else. The doctor I had previously would just look at me like he was bored and say there was nothing he could do. Since seeing Dr. Grunspan, I'm sleeping so much better and my overall health is better too. I highly recommend this physician.
I loved that he took the time to talk and examine me thoroughly. Dr. Grunspan's staff were very courteous and along with him went the extra mile to ensure that my needs were met. I just think that he is the greatest and I am glad that my primary care doctor sent me to him. Two days after my visit with him, he has taken care of a referral that I needed.
This man is very good at his work. He has obviously stayed on top of his game and will still burn the midnight oil to do anything from research to outside consulting in order to deliver a solid diagnostic solution.He spends time listening instead of merely hearing. He employs procedures and methodologies to his pursuit of problem solutions. And he has the tenacity of a terrier.I enjoy not only being his patient, but working with him to help support his finding of answers for me.He gives sleep issues the respect and serious attention that they deserve. And he gives respect to his patients by having highly qualified and personable staff who work at customer service.Love his standards. They make me work harder. Love his ideas. They make me think more. Love his ability to go the extra mile. I will sit this one out.My rating: 100% to Infinity & Beyond
