On initial consult Dr. Gruenwald was very polite and professional, explained any and everything about BA from risks, complications, benefits, pros and cons. His staff is exceptionally nice and friendly, made me feel very at ease with the process. I met a couple of weeks later with Jackie for preop, she was very knowledgable and helped me a lot to choose the right size for me. I chose 450cc silicone under the fascia. My procedure was at Lake Surgery Center, they were awesome. I was extremely nervous and they were all so gracious in helping to relive my fears. Dr. Gruenwald came in to see me before the procedure, very nice and professional. Everything went absolutely smooth, and then I was headed home. Piece of cake, don't know why I should've ever been scared! Jackie called to check on me the next morning, and have seen Dr. G in his office for post op. Great experience, would definitely do it over again! Wish Dr. Gruenwald a great retirement!

My first visit with Dr. Gruenwald was short but I felt he answered all of my questions. I did not feel rushed at all. He was very professional and straight to the point. My pre-op appointment was with his nurse, Jackie, who was very knowledgeable and answered all of my additional questions. The day of the surgery, he was very personable and friendly, and even joked a bit. I felt he was very careful and precise with his measurements and markings. I saw him the next day following my surgery, and he was again very reassuring and friendly. I felt very comfortable with him and his staff.

I had my consult with Dr. Gruenwald today, 10/22. His office was right behind my dentist so very convenient location, and I never noticed it before!!! It's close to my work (not even 10 minutes away) and only about 15-20 minutes from my house if that so good location. I like this as I won't have to go too far for return visits. As soon as you walk in the door, you see a beautiful, unique chandelier on the ceiling. Then in front of you is an enclosed glass waiting area with sofas, chairs, tables and reading material. The furniture inside was pretty cool and comfortable. There were two other ladies in the waiting area with me who had breast augmentations by Dr. Gruenwald. They both were very satisfied with their results. One had a full D and the other had a DDD. The only thing I wished was in the waiting area was refreshments as the waiting time was a little long. I waited 40 minutes before I was seen and the two ladies before me were waiting 40 mins and 1 hour. I was a new patient, but they were just there for their follow up appointments after their breast augs. Behind the glass waiting area, you could see a courtyard that had a small fountain and a Dr. Gruenwald sign. This is what I recognized from online. I just expected it to be in the front of the building. The whole office was a little smaller than I expected but was nice none-the-less. There was a hall to the right of the glass waiting area that had rooms for exams and a photo area. The room I was placed in once seen, had a chair in the corner, a small table with flowers on it, a chair for the patient, a rolling chair for the doctor and a table with some implant samples on it. Dr. Gruenwald came in to introduce himself then left so I could get into the robe. He came back in about 10 minutes later. We then went over why I was there and he went over the complications, risks, and general questions. Most of the questions I had written down for him he answered before I had to ask. He also picked out exactly what I wanted before I even told him! He chose for me a silicone gel implant, size C or small D, placed partially under the fascia through the crease under the breast. That's exactly what I was thinking so was amazed he thought the same way. I then proceeded to show him photos I had printed. He said they will be taped up on the wall during my surgery. I then asked the few questions he hadn't answered already. I discussed with him the coolsculpting I had done and if he thought lipo would be a good idea. He was skeptical that coolsculpting works and said some lipo would help but eating right and excersing was best.. I already eat right but I guess I should start excersing again. I also asked him about lipo for my neck. He said that was a bad idea as it would leave me with hanging skin on my neck. I was surprised as I thought my neck skin would bounce back cause I'm young. He recommended a neck lift called a lipectomy. Dr. Gruenwald is know for his facial surgeries so I have to trust his judgement. I will still do my research on this though. He then said his goodbyes and then left. Dr. Gruenwald was well mannerd, polite, knowledgable, professional and well educated. He has over 3 decades of experience and is board certified. Overall I had a good visit. I made an appointment for 12/18!!!! My pre-op is 11/25. Unless I get cold feet, have an emergency or meet a better surgeon, I'm booked!!

I has this done in 2011 and finally decided to write a review because I saw Dr. Gruenwald name pop up somewhere and he deserves the credit. I was originally going to stay local, which meant price would be 8k+ the least. On top of the that, did not feel comfortable with any of the doctors. Found Dr. Gruendwald on mmh, where i shared my experience, and it was the best choice i ever made..... Dr. gruenwald is not only price affordable, but he is so kind patient and truly cares about you. He emails you personally and answers EVERY single question you have...i had over 1000! he also does other aesthetic work, but I've never seen them personally. BEST DOCTOR FOR LABIAPLASTY! changed my life, i am so much for comfortable in my body now :)

Dr. Gruenwald's staff is what brought me to him and after meeting him I know why he is surrounded by such complimenting people. This whole experience has been nothing short of wonderful. I will recommend him to anyone wanting a positive experience. From the first visit I felt comfortable with Dr. Gruenwald, what you want matters. Surgery went well and my results are amazing. His pricing is far less for more work as compared to other BR doctors. Great experience, great staff, and very professional!!
