Dr. Kenneth M Gruenberg has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

Do not take you child to this quack!

I wish I could give him zero stars instead of one. He manipulated and worsoned our childs problems for years, until our son begged to no longer see him. Our son improved vastly with another therapists care. Dr. Gruenberg is only in it for the cash. He doesn't like to communicate with parents, and only when threatened by an attorney, will render a diagnosis. His treatment plan is never ending, unless your cash or insurance runs out. Bottem line is: Seek help anywhere else.

Shocked by what I'm reading on here...

Someone who is not willing to write their name here obviously has a personal vendetta against Dr. Gruenberg, and has probably made multiple usernames to just to smear Dr. G. Perhaps it's a rival psychiatrist writing this garbage? I don't know, but PLEASE do not believe a word of it. I saw Dr. Gruenberg from ages 6-12, and he helped me to become a young adult who can express and understand his thoughts and emotions. When my single-parent mother lost her job when I was 10, Dr. Gruenberg accommodated her situation so that I could continue to have appointments with him. Sometimes he and I would draw together and he would analyze my drawings and tell me what they revealed about my subconscious thinking. I remember how much that amazed me. He was like a benevolent father figure to me. He's an insightful, generous and caring man. Do not read these reviews that depict him as a money-obsessed devil, or a satanic prescription drug-pusher that ruins lives. He NEVER prescribed me anything in the 6-years that I knew him. Any anger-filled 1-star reviews about a renowned child psychologist should raise red flags in your mind. It's so off the charts and extreme that it has no credibility. Thanks Dr. G, I hope you're doing well!

Do not ever see this man.

Psychiatry is one thing, but this man should never be allowed to practice any sort of therapy. He took full advantage of my insurance policy, and has required me to see him once a week for the past 7 months for therapy. He kept me on medicine that was prescribed to me by a man who only met me once, and will not continue to prescribe if I do not see him. I had to seek outside help and pay out of pocket to get any help, and he is now threatening to have me involuntarily committed to a mental health institution. He has called me crazy and a liar multiple times. I will be filing formal complaints and have already contacted multiple lawyers about this man. There is more evil in his eyes than I can stand to look at.

Perfectly fine

I have taken my 11 yr old son to Dr. G for several months. We have seen definite improvement in my son's ability to handle stress. Dr. G's appraisal of my son's issues is consistent with my observations and also those of my wife. Psychiatry and therapy is as much art as science; finding the right fit for your/your child's needs is key. I highly recommend Dr. G.

One Star

He has screwed up my son beyond belief. Dr Gruenberg is arrogant, and believes that he can save the world himself.He is no role model for any child. He is a liar, and a money grubbing little weasel.
