Dr. Grigore was very solicitous in responding to my questions regarding the impending open-heart surgery. She spent a considerable amount of time with my wife after the operation explaining the results and reassuring her that the operation was completely successful. As a result of her efforts an the primary anesthesiologist, I will resume a better-than-previous active life once my rehabilitation period is completed. I certainly have no hesitation in giving the highest recommendation regarding Dr. Grigores professionalism.
