What People Say About Dr. Abbot Granoff, MD

Dr. Granoff’s ego is much larger than his knowledge. He is nothing short of a ‘pill-pusher’... A ‘Doctor Feelgood’ who gets his patients addicted to benzodiazepines and then when they won’t pay his outrageous fees (note: he takes no insurance) for bored housewives and addicts, he quickly ‘releases them’. I have been tracking his unethical behavior for some time now based on complaints. He doesn’t believe in cognitive therapy, only pharmacology. Please, for the sake of your mental & physical well-being, find a verified therapist. Not a Psychiatrist who truly only believes in medication, which will only make things worse in the end. And for those who are with him, he’s in his 80’s. What are you going to do when he passes or stops practicing? No other modern-day professional is going to prescribe 5 XANAX per day. You will be left on your own with horrific withdrawals. Please. Be wise. And find a better solution. His wife/admin is amazing, however! Sorry, Ann.

Dr Granoff is the only Dr that believed my husband about his panic attacks. He was put thru multiple test through cardiologist, stress test, echocardiogram,etc. I found Dr. Granoff on the internet and made the appointment for my husband. 15 years later he is still doing great. His attacks seldom happen now but when he has one we know what today because of Dr. Granoff expert advice. Anyone suffering from panic attacks and anxiety should seek Dr. Granoff. Life is great when you don't have to worry about having a panic attack. Thank you Dr. Granoff!

I began seeing Dr. Granoff early 2018 for panic attacks, anxiety & depression. I had suffered until then with other psychiatrists in the area. Dr. Granoff leaves room in his schedule weekly for new patients so I didn’t have to wait months to get in! With his extensive knowledge & expertise he was able to accurately diagnose, prescribe the right medications & educate me on my conditions. I also must mention his wife & office manager, Ann, simply wonderful! Dr. Granoff gave me my life back!

Dr. Granoff is an exceptional psychiatrist. In today’s fragmented healthcare system, it was refreshing to see that “full service” psychiatry is still being practiced. His knowledge of psychopharmacology is extensive and he has tailored my med regimen to keep my symptoms in remission. He is also a skilled, insightful psychotherapist and has helped me a great deal in this regard. Ann is warm and welcoming and made me feel at ease from the first time I scheduled. One-of-a-kind Dr. and practice!

I became a patient of Dr. Granoff 23 years ago for treatment of panic attacks and anxiety. He put me on a regimen of alprazolam 3 times a day. I am still taking it 3 times a day and have experienced no negative side-effects. I now have the confidence to leave my house and live a full life without being a prisoner to my fears. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Granoff for his strong belief in what he does.

I started seeing Dr. Granoff in 1981. I was at the end of my rope. I was having serious panic attacks and anxiety to the point that I was becoming homebound. My GP recommended Dr. Granoff. I was scared. Dr. Granoff did a complete medical work up on me to determine that I had no obvious physiological problems. He then started me on a series of therapies including hypnosis. Dr. Granoff literally saved my life. Here I am almost 40 years later, a fully functioning woman and almost anxiety free.

This is the "GOAT" buy his book. Dude saves lives. If you KNOW you NEED HELP with life's situations,decisions,actions,consequences. HONESTLY Don't give up. You can't blame ignorance or other physicians. "Help me I think I'm dying" is the bee's knee's. Composed beautifully as it is unique as it comes to Honest Help Recieving Treatment. It's extraordinary the amount of knowledge this man has obtained and applied to his profession . To give back people the gift of life is the passion. ????
