Dr. Grunsten has been a life saver for me, I was suicidal from a wrong diagnosis from a past psychiatrist and dr. Grunsten immediately gave me the correct diagnosis and medication. I have recommended him to family and friends. He is very kind and compassionate and I can tell he actually cares about his patients. Because I don’t have insurance he works with me to help find the most affordable medications for my budget.

I've been seeing Dr. Grunsten for a few years and recommend him to friends and family. He is one of the best doctors I've ever had. Always feel better after seeing him even if it's just a quick visit. He is supportive, down to earth and great with technology and appointment reminders! Honestly would recommend him to everyone.

I have been a patient of Dr. Grunsten’s for about 6 years now. He is easy to talk to and I trust his medical judgement very much. He has kept me on the lowest possible doses of all medications and has never pushed a particular medication in me. He always has a great show recommendation or funny meme to show me. It’s very easy to schedule my regular appointments with him as well as on the rare occasion that I’ve had to reschedule a follow up. He can be reached by text message for scheduling which is very convenient. I am always seen on time or within 5 min of scheduled time and the (shared) waiting room is clean and comfortable. When you’re looking for a first time psychiatrist appt. or looking to switch/2nd opinion, it can be stressful and a little anxiety provoking. Dr. Grunsten made feel at ease from the get go and I highly recommend him. Best of luck to you! Keep your chin up, it will get better. :)

If I could give Dr G a 10, I would in an instant. He's a wonderful human being,on top of being a great doctor. He truly cares about his patients. Go see him once and you'll understand. Honestly the best doc I've ever had (and I've had a lot of them!)

Fantastic doctor! Really understands the frustration of the weight gain which some medications bring. He was able to adjust my meds and I dropped 35 pounds and I feel great! Highly recommend him especially if you are struggling with the weight gain with medicine!

Dr. Grunsten changed my life for the better! I am beyond grateful I met him!

He is very kind and very accessible! When you need him he goes above and beyond. He is accommodating even understands sometimes public transportation is the reason behind a delay. I moved away from the city and still come to town for my appointments! I have seen a lot of docs and I am so very grateful for his knowledge compassion and dedication to his patients! Don't miss out on a life changing experience!

I have been seeing Dr. Grunsten for ~10 years. I had previously seen a number of psychiatrists who were very ineffective. I can not speak any more highly of his expertise, professionalism, dedication, and flexibility. He is always quick to respond to communications. He makes a great effort to provide ways to get medication and treatment that would otherwise be unaffordable. I have responsed negatively to most medications. However, he recently suggested a new medication that has changed my life.

DR. Grunsten is a excellent dr. I have been his patient for many years. He is kind and always gets back to u right away. Now a days with Drs that is very rare. If he doesn't have a appointment time that fits ur schedule he always does his best to move things around or stay late to accommodate your needs. Dr. Grunstren is extremely knowledgeable in is his field . I strongly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a new physician. He is extremely compassionate about his patients and his work.
