Dr. Jennifer Gruen - "Dr. Jenn" M.D.

An East Coast “lifer,” I was born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island. From the age of eight, I knew my life’s goal was to be a pediatrician. In 1988, I matriculated at Brown University in Providence, RI, graduating Magna cum Laude with a degree in Neurobiology.  Then I attended Cornell University Medical College in Manhattan, where I met my husband, David, a radiologist.

Next was a pediatrics residency at Babies Hospital of Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, also in NYC, where I was chosen to complete a fourth Chief Residency year managing 54 pediatric residents and a large inpatient service.

Then I spent ten years in large, busy Stamford and Wilton pediatric practices and three children followed. My family ultimately settled in Weston, where I found Children’s Health Services, my ideal small town practice, and Nikki Gorman, my ideal pediatric partner. Together, we are achieving my dream of Village Pediatrics, a home-grown, small town practice where I can provide a true medical home to my patients and develop close relationships with their families.

I love having a “small-town” practice that allows me to develop close relationships with my patients. When I’m not caring for my patients, I love doing crafts, baking, lego, antiquing and throwing great kids birthday parties. I am also known as the “1 out of 5” pediatrician who recommends chocolate to her patients who love it!! (In moderation of course…)

"Dr. Jenn" is a pediatrician at Village Pediatrics which serves Westport 06880, Fairfield 06825, Weston 06883 and Norwalk 06850.
