I've been seeing Dr. Grubb for 19 years. He has been nothing but professional and he always ask how my family is. Remember people this is a teaching hospital, so he does oversee many docotrs. His staff has been helpful and patient. I will continue to see him until he retures which I hope is never. Thank you Dr. Grubb for everything you do and for your outstanding staff. Ed M.

Arrogant jerk. Talks at you instead of talking to you. And when you call him out on it, he admits it and keeps doing it. I would rather stab myself in the eye than see him.

John Doe in New Brunswick , NJ – Jul 11, 2018
Dr Grubb has helped me for 2 years to manage my pain. After having CRPS and charcot foot for over 5 years, Dr Grubb recognized, diagnosed, and is treating me appropriately. His fellows are thorough and extremely competent. I feel I'm getting the best treatment possible and really appreciate the care and compassion I am receiving. Thank you Dr. Grubb!

While his wait time leaves a LOT to be desired at times, I have come to know and trust him and his staff. This took time and now very happy with him

john grosso in Newark, NJ – Apr 30, 2017
Like some of the other reviews stated, he spends very little time with you My first visit was ok and I generally liked him but on the second visit, he was like a different person. My third visit was a procedure and on the day of the procedure he mentioned something that I had no idea about and was never discussed with me. I actually had to yell at him to come back and explain what he was going to do. This was as I was being wheeled into the operating room. Totally unacceptable. I never returned

The worst so called doctor ever he's a true gadget boy fills his pockets. You do not see him you see young kids and real wise guys like grubb. They are training supposedly. Then grubb like in the worm comes in like he thinks he's God and he's a far cry from any god. Save your time stay away from this nut bag GRUBB IS A WORM LITERALLY

Michelle in Perth Amboy, NJ – Jul 04, 2016
#1, his interns spend 15-20 w/ me doing all his work before he comes in the room and gives me no more than 5 minutes of his time. #2, he refused to pre-approve my meds (Lyrica) for me, that were the only meds to work for me and that I was on for a few years. #3, I refused to take a urine test until I squared away billing with my insurance and the company who checks urine because they send bills for over $800. He terminated me as a patient because I wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna get billed.

Audrey in Matawan, NJ – May 22, 2016
Mostly his interns see patients and waiting time always has been very long, mostly over an hour and sometime even over 2hours. Hardly explain anything about problem and what treatment plans to do and doesn't answer questions
