A pretty horrible experience to say the least - I was given very strong anti psychotic medication after only being seen for about 45 min. I could have gotten any medication I wanted depending on how I tailored my story in my opinion - I was "diagnosed" based on my own comments and experiences about life and not established tests that would support my concerns. I think if I would've focused on being depressed I would've been given antidepressants no doubt. I was told that the medication given to me wasn't associated with diabetes which I am at high risk for yet found online that it truly was - with a lawsuit pending over people hurt by it no doubt! The medication I was given made me very suicidal on the first day and I couldn't reach a doctor for over 3 hours at their office. I was also overcharged and had to call to get a refund for the difference of what my insurance reimbursed their office. Stay away!! They just throw pills at you when they barely know you assuming it'll "fix" whatever problem you have. If you are seeking psychotic medication to fix you, check online for other ways first if possible - or at least a more recommended doctor!

Pros: Nothing - Quick to get you out of the office?! Wait, con!

Cons: Uncaring, too busy, unethical, horrible all around!

Dr. Gritz is fabulous-the best shrink I have ever be to. From his initial handshake onward he treats you with dignity, which is so important for those of us with bi-polar or other mental health issues. He patiently works with his clients to find the medications that will work for him. Prescribing psychotropic medications is not easy, and there are times of trial and error. One must be patient. No doctor can crawl inside your brain.

I am so impressed with Dr. Gritz that my daughter is now seeing him to manage her ADD. Her grades have improved and her teachers say that she is now focused in class. I have given positive references to my doctors and her pediatricians.

The decor of his offices are not cold and clinical. They appeal to kids to help put them at ease, and appeal to this adult, too. He doesn't look like a fossilized, uptight demi-god in a white coat. He is a genuinely kind man. You may have to wait for your appointment, but no longer than I've had to wait at any other doctors' offices, and usually less. I am glad that he is willing to give us extra time when we need it.

As far as the negative comments I have read on this site about his office staff, most seem to come from people who are egocentric and wear their feelings on their sleeves. Sometimes you have to hear what you don't want to hear, even if you are 45 and act like a 3 year old.

I am so glad I found Dr. Gritz. Bravo to him!

Pros: Caring, Kind, Knowledgeable,

I honestly have no complaints about Dr. Gritz or his staff. I was very comfortable discussing my problems with Dr. Gritz from the beginning and was pleased with his positive and optimistic outlook on issues. He worked diligently with me to find the right medications and dosages without forcing multiple meds on me - I would never classify him as a "pill-pusher". Although I have only had to call his cell a couple of times, he either answers right away or calls back within a few minutes (and will keep calling until he reaches you). His receptionist (who happens to be his mother) his very kind and helpful. Although I can see how people may dislike Mark's personality, he simply gets things done quickly without wasting your time with idle talk which is fine. I would highly recommend him to anyone (even if he does have a rather? interesting?sense of style.)

This is a great doctor and he cares about this patients. I always enjoy seeing him because he is so upbeat and postiive. He is a perfect psychiatrist. You know someone who was just born to be a psychiatrist. I can't imagine him being anything else. He is such a neat person and just a little quirkly so you don't feel bad telling him about your quirks.

I was refered by my therapist to Dr. Gritz (highly recommended). While I have only seen him a couple of times, I have found that it is not easy to reach him by phone when needed. I had a bad reaction to a new medication and called his office with a message twice. He never returned my call. The second time I called, an elderly lady on his staff was rather harsh with me and uncaring. I have never had an issue with his office manager, Mark. I do however believe he should put the elderly lady " out to pasture" . She obviously does not belong there- ever heard of retirement?

I've been seeing Dr. Gritz for several years, and can't say enough good things about him, and his staff. I actually live near the I-10/TC Jester office, but drive to the Richmond location because I appreciate the service that I recieve there. I have visited the other office, but found it to be a little "new age-y" and not as warm and friendly. In this day and age, it's nice to be able to visit with your physician's family, and the office manager having established a successful pet rescue is a refreshing change to the brusque "wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am" attitude experienced at some larger medical establishments. Keep up the good work!!

I have been to several psychiatrist in the past. I have been seeing Dr. Gritz now for close to a year and he is by far the best. He is very easy to talk to, he is charming and has personality but most importantly, he is great at what he does and is highly experienced in his field. Good doctors are hard to find and I'm glad I found Dr. Gritz.

The only complaint I have is with the receptionist staff at one of his previous locations at I-10 and TC Jester location. These ladies were rude, unprofessional. But luckily he's not there anymore. His staff at his main location (Richmond) is great and I have absolutely no complaints.

I love Dr. Gritz. He is always positive, seems to really care, and - added bonus - will see you at all hours of the day. Even on Saturdays sometimes! I have had some really negative experiences with psychiatrists, so it was so refreshing to find him. I'll never go to another one as long as he stays in Houston. My only complaint is about Mark, his office manager. Though he can be perfectly nice, he is often very abrupt, especially when he's busy. I've gotten used to him and realize that it's nothing personal, but he did make me feel uncomfortable the first two or three times I spoke with him because he seemed rude. I think it may be partially the juxtaposition of Dr. Gritz's sunny disposition with Mark's more dour one. Either way, the overall experience is FAR better than anything you'd get at a regular doctor's office.

Pros: Friendly, Caring, Quirky, and convenient hours

Cons: Mark is a little rough sometimes.

This is a good doctor with a kind heart. He is very busy so you have to wait a while beyond your appt time to see him. He is worth it because he takes time to listen to you and help you with your problems. He is friendly and shares a little about his life so you can get comfortable. He has a unusual sense of style and this makes you like him even more because he has such diverse interests he can make anyone feel better after seeing him. He does not over prescribe but will give you what you need. I can't say enough good things about him. HIs office staff are not always warm and cozy but they do get the job done and since the office is so busy I understand they don't have time to be your friend. I go to see Dr. Gritz not his staff.

Pros: Excellent doctor - you receive excellent care!

Cons: NONE

This is a doctor who is very easy to talk to about your problems. You can tell he really cares about his patients. Pretty office on I-10 (Heights). I can't imagine liking a psychiatrist more. He is very busy but that is to be expected since he is so good. He calls right back if you call with a problem which is a real plus. He has helped me so much I can't imagine where I would be if I had not found him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gritz for sometime. Without medication, he always lifts my spirits. I am not sure why someone would post about his mom working there. Guess what, his brother is next door. That tells me his family is pretty damn tight. And the comment about his office manager being gay. Wow. You must have limited exposure to a big city. His name is Mark, and he has been with Dr Gritz since I have been seeing him. And for the record since its an issue, I am not gay.
Mark takes all the calls, calls in prescriptions, handles office duties and patients calls. Plus, he has a dog rescue which comes out of his pocket. So if he seems business-like, its because he is WORKING.
Maybe you both had an off day. But, the office help and Dr. G has been life altering, without judgement. Ya might try the same.

Pros: no question is too embarasssing to ask him

Cons: I have bumped into people I know in the waiting room..strange feeling.

.

I have been seeing Dr. Gritz for quite some time now and he is a fantastic psychiatrist, a great person and has chosen a great office manager. Dr. Gritz worked with me to get me on exactly the medication regiment that I need to be on while being kind and understanding about my problems. Yes, there were times that I had unpleasant reactions to medications but, "I TOLD HIM ABOUT IT", and we changed to medications that didn't do that. It's not an exact science. Precribing psychiatric medications is, to an extent, a trial and error process. The office is very warm and welcoming unlike the cold, unfriendly doctor offices I've been to in the past. The office manager, Mark, is a wonderful person and Dr. Gritz is extremely fortunate to have him. I have worked in a doctor's office before and I have to tell you, the amount of work he does usually requires a staff of 3 to 4 people. I have never had to wait due to "personal calls". The only calls he has taken while I'm there have been from pharmacies or other patients. They may sound personal because he talks to Dr. Gritz's patients like human beings, not just another file. In regards to him being called "cavalier" on the phone, if you call him at the office and act like an ass...expect to be treated like one. I made this mistake once during one of my out of medication periods and he was blunt and honest. It wasn't nice or what I wanted to hear but, it was the truth. So I don't hold that against him. So I will continue to see Dr. Gritz for all of my psychiatric needs. Oh and, by the way, unless you have recieved services from Dr. Gritz, you shouldn't post your comments here. So any problems you may have with Dr. Gritz on a personal level, outside of his practice, need to be kept to yourself.

Pros: Great psychiatris, great staff, great office

Cons: sometimes behind schedule, but everyone is helped

I have been seeing this doctor for several years for bipolar disorder. I do feel I need to see him more often but schedules med checks every 90 days (I hear the current standard of care for a psychiatrist unless you are changing medications). I am really trying to help myself, take my medications as prescribed. I am making it because of his excellent care but I feel I need to see him more often. He did refer me to a therapist but I still need him because we just click when we talk and it is so much easier to share things with him including my suicidal thoughts than with my therapist. I don't hink he is odd at all??? where did the previous person get that - he is not your conservative surburban doctor - he is far more interesting than that!! Lots of different interests and you are not speaking to a blank wall - he shares just enough of his life to help you open up to him. This really is a great doctor and I should know since I have seen many psychiatrist in the last 20 years since being diagnosed. He is by far the most human one I have every been to see - most put up a wall and you can't get near them - or their thoughts. I hope he never retires because I don't want to have to look for someone new - luckily he is young so that should not happen for a while.

Pros: RE: Kind doctor with open and fun style of commuication

Cons: Mark has been at his job too long - cavalier about helping you when you call....

.

Unfortunately, I have been to quite a few psychiatrist myself, looking for a good one. Is it me or do some of them seem like they should be seeing a psychiatrist themselves? Gritz is very caring and has a positive attitude, but quite odd. I will keep seeing him because I think he is honest and is not a pill-pusher like many of them. His office staff could be more considerate. I always have to sit around afterwards, while he is taking personal calls and doing his own thing, instead of taking a minute to get me out of there quicker. Sometimes I spend more time with him than the doctor just to give him my payment. Quite frustrating.

Went to dinner once with this dude SEVERAL years ago ( he sure was proud of his Jaguar - hmmph ) and then he got all bent out of shape when I didn't return his calls immediately. He then tried to psychoanalyze me and said I was selfish and rude... But in reality I was just BUSY! Sheesh!

I have to agree with some of the other assessments on here that the guy is just generally pompous and self-absorbed. Sounds like he may need a shrink himself. ha

And I say that because Dr. Gritz has treated me and talked to me like I'm an idiot 3-year old. He never lets me finish what I'm trying to say. He makes me feel pathetic. Unfortunately, a coworker highly recommended him. I went to see him after NOT seeing a shrink for a couple of years. I guess he doesn't like me at all, and treats me accordingly. Well, I don't like him either. I will NOT be treated like a 3-year old. I'm 45 years old, dammit.

Have to say to the writer regarding Dr. Do-Do - you must have caught Dr. Gritz on a bad day. This was never my experience. Coming into his office with issues of my own was not only a painless task, but it also opened my eyes to the "non" pretentious, "non" pre-madonna and "non" malipulative style of psychiatry that I had experienced previously. If other docs picked up his easy going style, coupled with his deliberate goal for helping his patients, the bad wrap of psychiatrists might not be so prevalent. Have not seen him in many months, but when I call, he is always available to see me and pick up where we left off.

I really like this doctor. It is hard to put into words how much I like him. He listens and really does his best to help you. You do have to open up to him and tell him about all your problems but he makes it easy because of his caring personality. He also keeps up with the latest on psychiatric medications so you will get the best care possible. He is just the best!

I agree with the person before me in that I don't usually do reviews but I hate to see a good doctor maligned in print. No one really loves going to a psychiatrist because that means you have a problem that needs to be treated but if you have to go I highly recommend Dr. Gritz. He is not arrogant in fact he is just the opposite. He is kind hearted, friendly and always professional. It is so much easier to talk to him because he does share a little of his life. You need to tell him private, intimate things about your life and he makes that easier by sharing a little bit of his. He does give you his cell phone number and is very responsive if you do have to call him. I called him because I had medication question and he called me back in 15 minutes. Unfortunately psychiatric medications react differently in everyone so you usually have to try several medications before you get the right med and right dosage. I was lucky and the second med he prescribed really helped me but I know from prior experiece that sometimes you have to try many medications before you get the right one. This has nothing to do with how good the doctor is. This doctor is bright, young, energetic and very easy to talk to about what is going on in your life. If you need a psychiatrist call him! You will be so happy you did.

This has nothing to do with how good the doctor is. This doctor is bright, young, energetic and very easy to talk to about what is going on in your life. If you need a psychiatrist call him! You will be so happy you did.

Pros: Doctor's personality, nice office staff and easy parking

Cons: NONE

I never do this but after seeing the Dr. DoDo review I had to respond. I have been seeing Dr. Gritz for a couple of years. He has been amazing to me and for me. There were times that I also had problems with Medication. But all I had to do was tell him and he was very helpful. I mean how many Doctors do you know that will give you their Cell Phone Numbers to call anytime. Yes he talks about his life and we talk about my life. He is not some clinical Doctor and I am not just some number. If that is what you wanted you are right to not go back. But if you want a real person a real Doctor and someone who you know has your best intrest at heart This is the guy to go to.

This "medical professional" left a lot to be desired. He was rather arrogant and condescending from his initial handshake until he saw me out of the office. He talked a little too much about his personal life on my most recent visit. I feel that he over prescribed psychiatic medications, and all his prescriptions left me in a fog and unable to function. I was doing better before I ever saw him. I had a positive experience on my first few visits, but after my most recent visit I won't be going back.

Two Thumbs up, WAY UP! for this doctor. Excelent manner, great listener, sympathetic and very energetic. Made me feel welcomed from minute one to when he personaly escorted me to the front desk for my follow up appointment.
This is what the field of medicine needs to have mor of. Great experience the whole way through!

Dr. Gritz has helped my teenage daughter improve her focus at school tremendously. He is a empathetic person who will really take time to understand your problems. Many psychiatrists spend 10 minutes with you if you are lucky, but I never feel rushed with Dr. Gritz and that is unique. His office is easy to find and parking is free and readily available.
