Dr. Grunberger review 12-18-14.

Expect to wait a long time for an appointment with Dr. Grunberger and an equally long time in the waiting room. Time actually with him is brief and don't expect prompt follow ups by phone. He may or may not be knowledgeable (nothing accomplished for me after 2 visits) but he and his staff are very unprofessional and a pain to deal with.

Arrogant, behind the times, go to NYP/Columbia

This doctor told me I needed surgery which he would perform, and he specified what specific procedure, since there are several. To get a second opinion I went to the superb urology department at NYP/Columbia. I was told that I didn't need surgery at all, and that was years ago, and I'm fine. Plus, the doctors at NYP said the proper surgical procedure would have been the one Grunberger opposed. This doctor isn't interested in what you have to say--he is always right. If you disagree, he becomes really angry. Also, he waiting room is disgusting, overcrowded and not air conditioned.
