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.
