Testimonials

I started seeing Glenn in March of 2017 because of overall stress, anxiety, insomnia and infertility. I was impressed by the professionalism of his office and staff and the cleanliness of his office. As part of the new patient process, I was required to fill out a very comprehensive questionnaire/health history form. My first visit with Glenn was approximately 2 hours and he wrote detailed notes about my health history and reasons for being there. I have never had such an in depth visit by any medical doctor before. It was reassuring to know that Glenn was interested in trying to understand the root of my current issues.

Glenn performed acupuncture on me with each visit. The rooms were comfortable, clean and relaxing. One of the very first things that he also did was, because he suspected that I had PCOS (from my health history and general symptoms), to put me on a strict PCOS fertility diet, as well as vitamin supplements. I started the diet immediately and followed this very strictly. Glenn also tested me for adrenal stress, as well as thyroid imbalance. He found that I seem to be showing signs for secondary hypothyroidism, which explains all of the symptoms that I had reported during my intake form.

What I like most about Glenn is that he is very interested in partnering with mainstream medical doctors to find a solution that works best for his patients. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable in hormonal imbalances, especially as they relate to the thyroid and women’s reproductive health. I saw Glenn approximately every week for 2 months. The PCOS fertility diet and supplements I started when seeing him dramatically increased my overall energy levels and decreased my food cravings, so even though it restricted a lot of food types, the benefits were so overwhelmingly positive that I didn’t mind. The improved energy was probably the best effect. I felt like the first time in my life, someone had taken the time to truly take a deeper look at me and help me to understand why I had been feeling the way that I had been feeling for so long. With Glenn I began to take control of my own health through acquiring a better understanding of what my root issues are.

To make a long story short, in two months time, after following the strict PCOS diet and supplements that Glenn recommended, as well as receiving acupuncture approximately every week, I became pregnant! My husband and I had tried for over a year, so I attribute much of the pregnancy to the healthy lifestyle changes that Glenn helped me to implement and achieve.

I would highly recommend making an appointment with Glenn if you are struggling with your health and are interested in seeing a practitioner who will take the time to help you to understand what is truly causing your issues. His prices are fair and upfront and the  tests that he does come with an upfront prices that are affordable. Where possible, he works with you to do any testing with your current medical doctors so that tests can be covered under health insurance. Overall, Glenn is very competent and professional at what he does and I highly recommend him! I plan to continue seeing Glenn in the future for continued good health.

I have no words to show my gratitude for all you’ve done for me and my family, especially for my daughter. She has shown a lot of improvements since the day she was diagnosed with that mental illness.

This place is amazing! Glenn is extremely accommodating and beyond knowledgeable in his field of practice. I’ve been suffering from severe neck and back pain from my work as a dental hygienist. Since Glenn has been treating me with acupuncture and cupping the pain has subsided substantially! Glenn is a skilled, gentle presence whose focus is reaching the root of the problem and underlying issues to help live a happier and healthier life!

“Over two years ago, my husband and I decided to start a family.  I went off birth control in preparation, and initially it seemed as though my cycles would regulate.  However, after roughly two months of regular menstruation, my period abruptly stopped.  Initially I waited for it to come back but ultimately made an appointment with the gynecologist.  After progesterone therapy proved unsuccessful, the gynecologist suggested I restart the pill to “get back” my cycle, which is what I did.  Six months later, I again went off the pill, hoping that I would initially get my cycle like I did the first time.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t the way it worked.  I never got a period.  I again went to the gynecologist and this time she told me that I had secondary amenorrhea and would most likely never naturally menstruate again.  She also suggested that I contact a fertility clinic to help me get pregnant, which I also did.  After a myriad of tests, the fertility center came to the same conclusion – I have secondary amenorrhea, I will never menstruate on my own again, and I would need their help to get pregnant.  At the very least I would need hormone therapy and at the worst IVF.  Neither option was very appealing to me because both carry side effects; however, I want to be a mother so I was prepared to move forward.  Around the same time I met an acupuncturist, Glenn Gruby.  Glenn urged me to try acupuncture and Chinese herbs before undergoing hormone therapy because he said, “my body wanted to function normally – it just needed a little help.”  I decided to take his advice and try acupuncture and Chinese herbs for one year.  If I still hadn’t gotten my period after one year, then I would pursue the more traditional treatments.  I am very happy to say that I have had 3 cycles since I made that decision, and I am at the point where I am taking my basal body temperatures to test for ovulation.  For two years, every doctor I spoke to said that I was a lost cause, and they looked their nose down at me when I said that I was going to try acupuncture.  My particular story has to do with fertility; however, I think that many of us can relate to a time when conventional western medicine just didn’t cut it.  I think in those situations, its important to know that you have options and that you can get better.  I am truly grateful to Glenn for all of his help and I wholeheartedly endorse his service to anyone who needs an alternative to traditional treatment or just wants to give acupuncture a try.”

Glenn is a great acupuncturist. The treatment I’ve received has changed my life dramatically. He takes the time to talk with you and is always there to answer questions.

I’ve been suffering with fibromyalgia for over 10 years. And because of the treatment I’ve received from Glenn I no longer need to take prescription medication. I also have more energy, way less pain, and have lost 26lbs. I feel like a new person. Even though I went to him to help treat my fibro, he didn’t just focus on that. But he focused on making me healthy all over.

At one point I was having issues with sciatica nerve pain. One needle and the pain was gone and 8 months later it has not returned. I spent months in physical therapy to relieve that pain and never was able to relieve it.

I highly recommend Glenn. You won’t be disappointed.

Just wanted to thank you for all your help and to let you know that for the first time in many, many years I was able to fall asleep at 9:00 pm. The pain on my shoulder went away I am totally amazed thank you so much and look forward to seeing you soon.

I have been receiving acupuncture treatments at Camden County Acupuncture since  June, 2014 and have had nothing but excellent  experiences. Glenn Gruby is fantastic. In just a few treatments several of my symptoms became non-existent.  I must admit that I was – at first – apprehensive about going for acupuncture.  However, I now would most highly recommend the treatments and most highly recommend Glenn. In addition to being very professional, he takes his time explaining the causes of the symptoms and explaining the treatment in terms which are quite understandable. Glenn has been an enormous help to me and I am very confident in his expertise.

The best decision I ever made!

I had never tried Acupuncture before and was somewhat skeptical as to whether it would help or not. I found that the side benefits to this treatment were amazing and are too numerous to go into. It helped most with my sleeping problem and my general sense of well-being. Believe me when I say I am suggesting Acupuncture and Glenn Gruby L.Ac. in the same sentence to anyone that has a problem with chronic pain. Again, Thank You very much.

Glenn performed the most sensitive, empathic acupuncture treatment and massage.  His ability to assist in stomach distress related items was nothing short of a miracle.

Our entire family,including children and grandchildren, depend on their care and caring for us.

These doctors have kept me able to function at age 85. They are caring as well as competent and always willing to do extra if needed. I personally went to them in despair as I was barely able to keep up with daily life of caring for elderly relatives. Our whole family realized gradually what chiropractic and acupuncture could do for us that regular physicians, although educated and willing, could not provide, and have found that a combination of the cares have really benefited us. These doctors have taken extremely good care of us and we would recommend them to anyone needing help.
