Ratings for Dr. Deborah Ginsburg
I was so hopeful when I started with Dr. Ginsburg. I was excited to have an MD who also understood functional medicine. Between my first and second visits with her I became pregnant. We discussed my pregnancy care, the prenatal vitamins etc. etc. She prescribed triphala to help with constipation during the pregnancy. After taking 3 doses I started bleeding. I started looking into the supplement and right on the bottle it says that it is NOT to be taken during pregnancy for risk of miscarriage! Every website I have found reinforces that it is not to be used by pregnant or nursing mothers. The literature I have read also says that triphala can be toxic to the baby. I miscarried the week I started taking the supplement. While I cannot prove it was the supplement that caused it I believe Dr. Ginsburg had a responsibility to warn me of these possible side effects. I did write to her and ask her about these concerns and she said that she stands behind the product and named a few doctors that believe that it is safe. If I had known there was any risk I would never have taken it! I am devastated that I could have caused the loss of life for my unborn. Please, read the labels yourself! I hope this was an oversight by Dr. Ginsburg but the trust has been broken and I will not return to her.
I needed to add my comment though I saw Dr. Ginsburg several years ago. Though she is definitely knowledgable; I felt her bedside manner was horrid. When I told her I was feeling blue and perhaps post-pardom after two kids 18 months apart; she asked me how long I breastfed my children. I tried as long as I could to breastfeed and had difficulty doing so - I ended up stopping within the first year not b/c I wanted to. I felt bad about this - you know what she said? As I sat crying in her office - she told me I DID A DISSERVICE TO MY CHILDREN. Really??? I cannot tell you how horrible that made me feel at the time. This smart Doctor needs to work on her communication skills BIG TIME.
Doctor did not review medical history submitted in advance but reviewed at the time of appointment while she was having tea. She did not perform a physical exam but ordered alot of costly lab tests. Not what I was loking for in a Holistic MD.
This is probably one of the best doctors on the east coast, if not the whole USA. She is a true natural/holistic doctor which means truly non vax friendly.Everything was super clean, thorough, friendly, on time, and squeezed me in last minute to accomodate me. Office is very easy to find as well. Will definitely continue to bring my toddler to her in the future. To the person who says she doesn't know anything, I am sorry you but are the one who is misinformed about autisms true causes if you feel that way. Five stars.
Had heard about Dr. Ginsburg for some time, and was pleasantly surprised she started her own practice and is taking new patients. Wonderful doctor for kids. I was taken right on time and knew in advance that she would spend a full hour with me for my first visit with her, She used the time well and was interested not only in my health issues but in the life issues around them, which influence them. Her website is actually www.healing-oceans-family-wellness-center.com
Dr. Ginsburg opened her own holistic medicine practice in September 2011. The issues with waiting to see her are gone. She is now taking new patients again. I am her office administrator. For more information you can go to her website at healing-oceans.com
Dr. Ginsberg is a very thorough doctor who cares about her patients. I have been seeing her for 11 years and she has provided me with excellent care throughout the entire time. She is a homeopathic doctor. She is open to health and nutrition options and recommends those options when necessary. She is an excellent doctor who sees the patient holistically and not in discrete parts. I highly recommend her.
