Specialties

Dr. Denise D Gribbin has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr Gribbens does not listen and SHE was late for most of my appointments. For one of them, I waited for hours. When I was forced to call in to cancel a appointment due to illness, I was charged a missed fee.( I should have been charging her.) I tried to speak with her office about this and got no help. I am changing doctors. She is not compassionate, and considering her field, I expect much more from a psychiatrist. I would think that a patient should feel better after therapy not more depressed and leave crying . If I could give her a 0 on the rating scale, I would.

From the very first visit I liked Dr. Denise Gribbin very much and she was very helpful to me and she was so easy to talk to and she got me to talk so easily. I'd never been to a psychologist before so had no idea what to expect so I was quite nervous. From the moment I walked into her room I felt at ease and surprised myself at how easy it was for me to talk with her. I really enjoyed the visit!!

Office doesn't even answer the phone

Very disappointed, I called to set up a new patient appointment (option 3). Called 7 times over a time span of a few hours and continued to get a voicemail. On the eighth time, I left a message. It’s been a week and I haven’t received a return call. When I call to get my vehicle serviced, there is always someone available to answer my call. I am told that a persons health is far more important than that of a common vehicle. But so far my experience tells me that this psychiatric office doesn’t share my opinion. I guarantee that every professional there is $300 per hour and they won’t splurge $12 per hour on a receptionist?

Best Psychiatrist in Grand Rapids, MI

I highly recommend Dr. Gribbin; she has been my saving grace. She is down to earth, very knowledgable and compassionate. I trust her whole heartedly, and would recommend her to anyone & everyone. I have been her patient for approx. 11 years, and pray that I never see the day when she decides to move, or where I have to switch Dr.'s. I would be lost without her, and I have to say being treated like a person and not just a number is priceless. She has a heart of gold, and when I could not afford my medication co-pay one time, she actually did something I have NEVER in my lifetime seen... She gave me the money for my co-pay. Because she cared enough that she did not want to see me go off my medication. That is definitely going ABOVE and BEYOND her duty as a Doctor.

Very blessed to have Dr. Gribbin for my Dr...

I have been a patient of Dr. Gribben's for about 10+ years and I honestly believe my Primary Physcian (Dr. Cavacece) and Nurse Practioneer (Jane Visser) did right by me by giving me a referral to Dr. Gribben. I could not be more appreciative. I have done one in patient stay at PR, and one out patient. And the whole time, Dr. Gribben has been very supportive, and helpful. Dr. Gribben has a warm & caring personality, and she is so knowledgable. I would HIGHLY recommend her to any of my friends, family or strangers. I don't feel like just a number with Dr. Gribben (or the other Dr. & Nurse Practitioneer mentioned above); I have the BEST Drs...
