Debra Brown-Grossman's bio

This content was provided by Debra Brown-Grossman "First and foremost, I am an experienced registered dietitian/nutritionist who has been in the field for almost 40 years. I have experience in many aspects of nutrition counseling including over 20 years as a pediatric nutrition specialist and subsequently as an adult weight management specialist. In these two roles, I developed and directed several group weight management programs including one of the first multi-disciplinary programs for child and adolescent weight management in the country out of Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans. In the New York Tr-State area, I worked as a weight management specialist and pediatric growth specialist at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, Mount Sinai Medical Center and Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn. About twenty years ago, I obtained my Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) certificate which involved many hours of supervised work in diabetes counseling and nutrition and passing a difficult exam. Since that time, I have enjoyed counseling people during many of stages of this chronic disease including Pre-Diabetes, Types 1 and 2 and now 1.5 or Late Onset Type 1 Diabetes. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Debra Brown-Grossman "All of my recommendations are based on sound scientific evidence and are clinically confirmed through studies.I strongly believe based on my years of clinical experience, that THERE IS NOT ONE PARTICULAR DIET OR WAY OF EATING THAT IS SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE! There are many diet models that I present to my clients to choose or that I might recommend based on the individual's food preferences and eating style, finances, medical and family history and emotional/behavioral habits. Goals in terms of eating, physical activity and behavioral are set at each visit and reviewed at the revisit."

She leaves her office door open and I could hear what was going on with the other patient. She made fun of me in front of my son, she went on and on about a subject that was mute.

She knows a lot about nutrition. Beyond that, she's very unprofessional. Her office was cluttered so I could see other patient's info. She was on the phone with a provider speaking about someone else. She overcharged me for the visit. She was a half hour late. I wouldn't come here again.

Debra is a quality provider of nutritional care. She does not pull punches - if your health is in danger she will be frank. She is not selling a nutrition plan and is not co-opted by a food system. She will direct you to other quality professionals and likely bariatric surgery if you qualify. If...more
