I would definitely recommend Dr. Gruen to others! She is knowledgeable, caring, and took the time to answer all my questions. I will certainly go back to her for any skin issues.
I never write reviews but Dr Gruen is a dermatologist fairy godmother. I have had acne prone skin my whole life. Dr. Gruen was the first dermatologist that I've met who was able to prescribe medications that actually worked with my skin. Thanks to Dr. Gruen I have clear skin. She understands every patient is different and takes the time to tailor a plan to each patient. A co-worker referred me to Dr. Gruen and now I refer her to everyone when I am asked about my skin regime.
I went to Dr. Gruen with hair problems. She was very ironic and not professional. Instead of helping me, she told me that, hopefully I will find a rich husband one day and he can pay for my hair transplantation. I should really give her 0 stars.
