Very intelligent man. Helped me with many problems. Lovely wife.
The problem was not because of him, it was his OFFICE people. I had 2 appointments with him, referred from one of my other doctors for pain mgt. All was totally fine, everyone was sweet and understanding, UNTIL i needed some assistance with medication, his OFFICE STAFF ladies miscommunicated my message to the dr. -ended up to be my fault -He didn't even ck with me to find out what really happened. Those ladies ruined it for me unfortunately and because of them, he won't see me now. SO upset

I saw this clown over 20 years ago. I had 6 back surgeries. I was receiving some narcotic.. He was having trouble (He told me) with his wife. But we got along well! So after all this time and lots of P/T and different doctors. I went back. His wife still told him when he could go the bathroom and who and when he could see! He he didn't remember me. Liar! He was like a beaten puppy now. His wife ran the office like it was hell. Still the awful woman at the window. Terrible office! He ignores u!

I saw Dr Gruskin for help with my peripheral neuropathy pain. I wanted to stop taking Lyrica because of the bad side effects and to instead be moved to a Med with less side effects. My initial office visit was less than 15 minutes and he spent more time typing on his computer than even looking at me.He did not conduct any type of exam whatsoever . when I subsequently had a serious side effect to the Med he prescribed he failed to return my phone calls - I thought I was having a stroke
