When I found Dr. Grovit, I would take 3-5 trips to the bathroom a day, and be in there for 1.5-2 hours. His guidance has changed my life. Whether we are discussing nutrition and insulin ratios for the treatment of my type 1 diabetes, or supplements to support gut health for my celiac disease, Dr. Grovit proves that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You will not find a more humble, kind, and knowledgeable doctor outside of a Hollywood script. Dr. G is a true hero.

I can't say enough to explain how grateful I am for Dr. Grovit! He patiently taught me how to live with a colostomy and what is more, to enjoy eating again without any pain! He also taught me in simple terms what my body needs nutritionally and the best way to prepare all foods so as to avoid pain digesting them. I thank God everyday that my primary care doctor recommended I see him. Dr Grovit is a blessing!

When I was diagnosed with Crohns disease at age 12, I almost gave up on doctors because nothing they prescribed was working. Dr. Grovit is my guardian angel! He saved my life and because of him I'm finally living it, Thanks to his nutrition protocol.

I was diagnosed with UC three years ago. Last year I had a relapse and medications did not seem to help. Having heard of Dr. Grovit I traveled all the way from the Middle East to see him. He not only could understand my symptoms and explain them (something no doctor had previously been able to), he was confident in being able to treat me. A few moths later, I am feeling better than ever, out of the relapse. I am on the minimal course of medication. Dr Grovit is an excellent listener & physician!

When my daughter was diagnosed with UC at age 8, she was refractory to every medication she tried. With Dr. Grovit's expertise, we have been able to get her growing and healthy! While we haven't been able to avoid meds, the medications are working with her strong nutritional foundation!! My daughter is now 13 and thriving. Dr. Grovit is not only brilliant, he is sensitive, empathic and accessible. He has truly been our angel since 2013. There is nobody else like him in the world.

While trying to find options to help our very sick daughter with Crohns disease we came across Dr. Grovit. We made the decision to travel all the way from Ireland to New York see him. Besst decision we ever made. We spent about 4 hours with him in his offices and by the time we left we had a detailed and personalised nutritional plan in place which with which to finally start a journey of true healing. For the first time in years we felt hope. Dr. Grovit is an amazing doctor & an amazing person.

Dr. Grovit Is the most wonderful, knowledgeable, and compassionate Doctor we have had. He was instrumental in getting our daughter ( (IBD) into remission with diet and supplements. It's not exaggeration to say that he gave our daughter her life back! We traveled all the way from the west coast to see him. His appointments are thorough and he is incredible at modifying the treatment to address his patients needs! His understanding of autoimmune conditions is incomparable.

Dr. Melvyn Grovit has given our 14 year old son his life back! When we first met with Dr. Grovit over 2 years ago, we were heartbroken and weary from watching our child suffer the effects of Crohn's Disease. He was the answer to our prayers for healing. We have never felt more care, compassion, competency and hope from a doctor. Dr. Grovit is an expert in clinical nutrition and has proven over and over how one can manage illness and disease with proper nutrition, vitamins and neutraceuticals.
Plano, TX |
We travelled from Texas to NY to see Dr Grovit and he did not disappoint. He spent 4 hours with us explaining my daughters disease to her and outlining a plan. He has since been available to answer emails or phone calls with a quick response time. We are thrilled that her health has improved as she has learned to manage her symptoms with the tools Dr G taught her.
in Buffalo, NY |
When my 3yr old son was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, I was beside myself with heartbreak and worry. I wasn't sure where to turn, but after much research, I found Dr. Grovit. We traveled over 700 miles to see him, and I can honestly say it was one of the BEST decisions I have ever made. My son is doing amazingly well by following Dr. Grovit's nutrition protocol. I could not be more thankful for Dr. Grovit and all he has done (and continues to do) for my family. He has changed our lives!!
in Hollywood, FL |
Dr. Grovit is the one that have give us hope, the one that have listen to our concerns as parent regarding our son condition. He is guiding us and helping us every day. If we have a question or something to tell him or ask him, he will call us immediately! I really recommend Dr. Grovit to anyone!

Dr. Grovit has Been a light in the darkness for us. He has always given us hope, guidance, reassurance and sound advice. He has always been there when guidamce is needed. His compassion and level of professionalism is why we sought him out in the first place. It was the testimony of others that lead us to our own experience with Dr. Grovit which has been remarkable. We as a family can not say ENOUGH about how wonderful our experience has been and continues to be with Dr. Grovit.

From the moment we spoke with Dr. Melvyn Grovit, his expertise, knowledge, compassion, and care for our daughter's well-being was life changing! He is a dedicated Doctor that is a true leader in the field of clinical nutrition. Our daughter's Crohn's disease was extremely complicated and severe. However, she has been living a happy and healthy life for the past eight years, utilizing his nutritional plan. I highly recommend Dr. Melvyn Grovit. He is the answer to our prayers!
