I came to the practice from another state. My background was research in brain function. Dr Grosberg is an excellent doctor and researcher. He knows what he’s doing. I highly recommend. I will note that initially the road was a bit bumpy getting into the practice, however Dr Grosberg went out of his way to ensure patient satisfaction.

Sorry , but I cannot give a good review. I got no relief from my left sided headaches that are probably the result of long term changes in the shape of my skull from a very invasive neurosurgery done decades ago. If you have chronic migraines you may be very happy here- once you get and appointment and that can take months. Dr. Grosberg is charming but he is a migraine specialist and tried to get me to get an MRI despite not knowing if the metal intracranial clamps in my head were MRI compatible. Fortunately two of my other docs said" not worth the risk". Also , the stiffness in my left eye was ignored which makes my ability to read and use a computer very limited- I had to retire early. I continue with daily headaches that are probably the result of structural changes in my skull causing tentorial tension which is causing tension on the nerves to myleft eye. ( makes reading very tiring). I continue with hours of daily headaches

Dr. Brian Grosberg is the best headache doctor you can have treating you period! He is also a caring, warm and friendly doctor which helps when you have chronic migraines. In my case I also have other neurological issues and is always on top of my care with the other factors and making sure nothing will trigger seizures or bleeding in my brain. The office is always scent free and low lighting! All around a wonderful place to be treated.

I saw Dr. Grosberg because by doctor wasn't available that day. He was amazing. Very kind and he LISTENED to what I had to say and asked questions. He wanted to try new things to help my migraines. He explained things in ways that were easy to understand and offered new solutions. He also had a good sense of humor. I would absolutely give him 5 stars!

I have been a patient of Dr. Grosberg for years. I followed him from NY to CT. He is the best doctor I have ever had. He genuininly cares about his patients and knows his craft. He doesn’t rush you. He takes his time and treats the whole patient not just one symptom. I can’t say enough good things about him.

I cant say enough good about him. However, I am in the middle of a medical crisis and let the office staff know. They could not give me an appointment with anyone till March. I am disabled with pain due to CSF leak and cannot wait. The office staff explained they could not do anything. No attempt to let him know that a patient was in crisis nothing. This is not how he would like his office run. Megan Kozak

I drive 88 miles to see Dr Grosberg and I would travel anywhere to see him. He is the most caring, compassionate, and thorough Dr. He responds to all emails and takes the time with you to review your plan of care. He will communicate with your other drs (my surgeons and ob/gyn) about best treatment options. With a 3 hour round trip drive, his office staff is always accommodating to my schedule and they are also the sweetest women.

So glad to hear, Deborah! :)
Dr. Grosberg is an excellent doctor. He is a great listener, a skilled doctor and a very compassionate human being. I am very grateful to have him as my physician. I would be disabled without his care and I now work as a therapist about 55 hours a week. I followed him from the Bronx to here to continue to work with him.

We appreciate your positive review, Daniel.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr Grosberg and his caring, professional staff. In the two years that I have been under his care, he literally has given me my life back. My debilitating chronic migraines kept me from life outside my home. His caring and highly professional manner afforded me the opportunity to work with him and discuss a treatment plan to start me on the road to better management and better quality of life. He is my miracle and will be yours also.

So kind of you to say, Karin! Thanks.
Dr. Grosberg is one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate doctors, and arguably people, that I have ever met. He is on the cutting edge of his field, and cares very deeply for his patients. He has an incredibly gentle bedside manner, and will stop at nothing to make sure that he is getting to the bottom of your pain. Those of us with migraines know how grueling it can be, but Dr. Grosberg is a bright light at the end of what can be a long and dark tunnel. Highly, highly recommend!

Thanks, Lindsay.
I have been seeing Dr. Grosberg since april of 2016. He has helped me tremendously by trying to help find a solution to my chronic migraines. I have suffered with migraines since childhood. I have seen numerous doctors over the years but none have been as patient and persistent in trying to find a treatment that would give me relief from these debilitating headaches. If he suggests a treatment that does not give optimal relief he continues to work to find a new solution.

Dr. Grosberg is the most caring neurologist I have ever been to. I have never met a doctor who has such a wonderful bedside manner. He cares and empathizes with his patients. He has gone way out of his way to help reduce my pain. For ex, even calling me way after hours. I have dealt with migraines for 23 years which is most of my life. He is literally the smartest person I have ever met. He has so much useful knowledge. The world needs more doctors like him. CT is so lucky to have him!

I have suffered from migraines for 10 years. I’ve seen now 4 different neurologists to try and better manage my migraines and decrease the intensity and frequency. My first appointment with Dr Grosberg changed my life. I have since decreased my migraine frequency and intensity and cut out unnecessary medications. Dr Grosberg has a vast variety of knowledge and builds off of his personal knowledge and research studies to treat his patients. He will do anything and everything for his patients.
