Dr Grebenciucova was professional and knowledgeable she demonstrated an interest in the reason for my visit. She came in already having reviewed my past medical history. She listened attentively to symptoms that were of concern to me and reviewed with me the test results I had brought in. She explained possible diagnosis, the need for further testing and she explained the particular test themselves. She suggested referrals and gave great feedback. I would highly recommend Dr Grebenciucova to anyone that is in need of that particular specialty area of care.

Dr G & her Resident were very thorough, never had a 2 hour appointment, listened to my experiences/concerns and while reassuring that Dr. G didn't think I have what the previous neurologist diagnosed me with, gave me hope that I'd get definitive answers at NMH! Obviously Dr. G is a specialist w/in the realm of neurology but if someone I knew had MS or an auto-immune disease then would refer to her.

I had an appointment and was running late (drive is nearly two hours for me). Dr. G's staff alerted her that I had arrived. I clearly saw her headed home for the evening. Then she immediately stopped, greeted me in the lobby and said give her a minute and she would see me soon. In today's world where everyone's time is being pulled in many directions; this was outstanding service. Dr. G, then took time to have small talk with me and did her full medical visit with me. Thank you, Dr. G! You are truly an amazing doctor.

Dr. Grebenciucova is THE best MS doctor that I have EVER ENCOUNTERED! Not only is she an immunologist but she is a neurologist also- thus providing her with the knowledge and expertise to evaluate an MS patient. I feel that my care is so individualized with her, and I am am the person making the final decision on my care. She gives me numerous options. This has not always be true historically in the treatment of MS, as there were few therapies in the 90s. She spends a good deal of her time talking with her patients and looking over the charts and the MRIs. Additionally she does consult with her team to refine any questions that she has. I LOVE this physician and she is amazing.
