Dr. Grech has been my cardiologist for about 5 years. I think he is very well qualified. My only complaint would be that Dr. Grech if very often late. Otherwise no complaints.

I have been a patient with Dr. Grech for about two years. I find him to be very profesional and caring, always taking his time to explain to you in detail, not rushing in and out, like some other Physicians do. I will definitly remain a patient.
in St Augustine, FL |
It's a wake up call to visit a cardiologist ... always hard to imagine that I'm not a youngster anymore. As I went through the full check up with Dr. Grech and the team at First Coast Heart & Vascular, I was impressed with their efficiency, and Dr. Grech's kindness and interest. All done, I had a very good report, for which I'm super grateful. I would highly recommend Dr. Grech and the FCHV team.
in Mount Dora, FL |
Dr. Grech greets you with and maintains a warm, friendly attitude. His explanations are candid and offered in layman's terms. He never makes you feel rushed and is open to further discussions and questions. We've moved from the area and will miss seeing Dr. Grech personally as well as professionally.

in Ormond Beach, FL |
Dr. Grech is brilliant. I contacted him for a second opinion. The first cardiologist totally misdiagnosed me. I was on meds that were dangerous and harmful to me since I did not have the condition that I was previously diagnosed. He was professional,kind and thorough. He carefully reviewed all my test, every page of (2) 24 hour holter monitors. I was feeling very ill from the anticoagulants and cardiac meds I was taken, I feel he saved my life. Totally recommend Dr. Grech.

Dr. Grech is very thorough with patient history and family history. He is also very meticulous about explaining every test and the results of each test.

My last experience was 2015. He was professional, down to earth, honest, compassionate, and informative. Thank you for being my and my husband's doctor. I recommended Dr. Grech to my husband under the worst of circumstances. Mu husband was in Orange Park Medical Center as a inpatient newly diagnosed with AFib when he met Dr. Grech. He connected with Dr. Grech from the very first moment. My husband was grateful to me and to Dr. Grech for standing by & taking care of him in a difficult time.

in Palm Coast, FL |
Dr. Grech listens to his patients, explains things to them, thoroughly, is understanding and pleasant. Both my husband and I like him very much and feel confident with him.
in Green Cove Springs, FL |
Always considered Dr. Grech to be a very sociable doctor who clearly and concisely explains your diagnosis and answers any and all questions. I had occasion to be admitted to hospital emergency recently with a completely separate but serious problem, but he was the first doctor to visit me the next morning, and explained what was going on. He also popped in to see me the next day, and it made me feel that he really cared. Outstanding man.
in Orange Park, Fla |
Only saw him twice. Had a lot of test done the last being a home sleep study back in October 2015. Waited a few weeks for results, never got a call, called them and was told they would have to look into it, called several more times and as of July of 2016 have never gotten those results or another call from this office. I was also supposed to see the vein doctor in this office and they would call and set up an appointment and have never received that call either. Will never use or recommend
in Orange Park, FL |
He makes me feel like a friend as well as a patient
in Elkton, FL |

from the first time I met him I knew he would be the Dr. I wanted by my side, friendly, understand and knows what is needed at time of need. Very close to his patients, explains situations the most easy and considering way.
in Palm coast,fl |
Just wish he would spend little more time with me trying to tell him things that are going on with me and my heart, pains and discomforts but he to me just to busy to listen my old doctor Dr stratienko always took time to listen and help me!
in Orange Park, FL |
Dr. Grech explains my medical condition thoroughly; then he asks if I have any questions for him. He has a dry sense of humor, which I particularly like, but he is very serious about my heart problems and makes sure I understand them totally. I would recommend him to all of my friends.

I would highly recommend Dr. Grech because he has an excellent manor of communicating. He made me feel so at ease while maintaining my confidence in his professional ability. I learned a friend who saw him soon after me had the same great experience. He and his wife liked him very much. With matters of the heart, you want this kind of assurance.
in Jacksonville, FL |
Dr. Grech was called in to see me following my stroke 7 years ago. His calm demeanor and knowledge managed to put me at ease during that stressful time. I decided to make him my regular cardiologist and have not regretted that decision over the last 7 years. Dr Grech and his staff are simply wonderful..

He put me at ease with his humor and his quiet calming explanations of my particular problem. Will return to him if I have any heart related issues in the future. Thanks to all the staff as well. All were very nice and mindful of the patients apprehension of just being in a doctors office especially when it is a heart issue.

Very professional and concerned about his patients.

Found him friendly and personable. First time anyone ever told me I had a leaky heart valve. Although he stated it was not an unusual condition for heart patients, somehow wish I hadn't heard .
