This is the head of urology at Methodist Hospital. He is in the New York magazine Top Doctors issue pretty much every year. Which makes you wonder, how exactly do doctors get into this list of top doctors? A few years ago, this doctor told me I needed surgery to literally shave down the size of my prostate -- this has nothing to do with cancer. He said he would perform the surgery and talked about several techniques, one being green light laser, which he recommended against. I wanted to get another opinion before getting any surgery, especially something as bizarre as cutting down the size of my prostate, and so I went to see two urological surgeons at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University campus. They told me not only did I not need surgery, nothing needed to be done at all and I was fine. And that if I had needed surgery, the green light laser was the preferred protocol.
This guy Grunberger is a pompous ass who is always correct, who knows everything better than everybody. His waiting room is disgusting.
For those of us who live in Brooklyn, and these days that includes movie stars and every other sort of celebrity, a word of warning: step into a Brooklyn hospital at risk of your life. In an emergency you better get into Manhattan fast. If you're having a heart attack, get to Maimonides.
