I saw Dr. Gruen today. My first time come to and I found all staff here are so nice and friendly. Dr. Gruen is the nicest dermatologist I have even seen. She is professional, warm, kind and very helpful. She helps me inject my acne scar, recommended a very professional pharmacy and laser treatment to me. She tried her best to help me avoid high cost but get the very best treatment. Dr. Gruen has a such a warm , kind and generous heart. I appreciate it a lot. I believe that’s why all her staff in this office are so nice too. Great people make a difference. Thank you all.

I had a FANTASTIC first appointment with Dr. Gruen. Not only was she able to give me context on my concerns, she also took one look at another spot I had had for over 10 years and told me there is a medication to treat it! Every other doctor I had gone to ignored my concerns and referred to the issue as non harmful and therefore not requiring treatment. If you are a brown person like myself, I HIGHLY reccomend her. She has done extensive study on patients of color, and knows the skin conditions that affect them more than the white population. On top of her knowledge, she has fantastic bedside manners, made me feel like I was just talking to a friend. She is bubbly, patient, and never makes you feel rushed out. Will be coming back if I ever need a dermatologist again :)

I saw Dr. Gruen at her Greenwich Village location. She’s knowledgeable, smart and friendly and has a great bedside manner. She took a conservative approach in my diagnosis, which saved me from a biopsy and scar. She even called my father, a retired dermatologist, to discuss the diagnosis (and he said she sounded great). Would definitely recommend!
