One can only describe Dr Kendra Grubbs as "striking" at first glance with blue eyes and symmetrical features. At second look, the word "competent" comes to mind and thirdly, "pleasantly caring" finishes the list. I can't imagine how mentally and physically exhausting performing 8 hours of heart surgery is, but that is the time Dr Grubbs spent performing three bypasses and replacing the mitrel valve in my heart. I am so thankful for her and the team at Jewish for everything. ??

My husband and I truly blessed by her expertise.. Would we recommend her to family, friends, and strangers..ABSOLUTELY.. God Bless her, the staff, and the entire orginuzation..

All I can say is horrible,rude,I don't care attitude. A few months after bypass surgery was having trouble found out the bypass failed waited for her to come see me and was told by nurse she had nothing to say to me. How horrifying.

Distracted and rude to other staff. Self absorbed
I think you may have the wrong physician. Although I trained in New York, I have not practiced there in over three years. I am a Cardiovascular Surgeon specializing in minimally invasive and transcatheter cardiac surgery in Louisville, KY.

I would recommend Dr. Grubb to family friends. She saved my husband's life. He had an Dissection of the Aorta, which he could have died or had a stroke, he is a miracle THANKS to Dr. Grubbs and staff. GOD puts people in our lives for all reasons and seasons and Dr. Grubb was put in our lives for a blessing. My husband is recovering and we are blessed that Dr. Grubb and her staff were in our lives when needed.

My husband was diagnosis with Dissection Aorta and Dr. Grubb performed an Open Heart Surgery(emergency surgery) on him and saved his life. She explained in details what she was going to do and even after the surgery, she explained what had to happen next and even draw pictures. We are from Philly and we are grateful for her and her staff, for the kindness shown us. GOD puts people in your life for all reasons and seasons and we feel that Dr. Grubb and her staff(nurses) were placed in our life

Dr Grubb performed open-heart on me several weeks ago. Her and her staff saved my life and gave me longevity in my life. I am grateful to her as she is a talented surgeon and a straight shooter when explaining my procedures and rehab. I would refer any one you know or a loved one to Dr Grubb, she is an asset in the Medical community as she cares about the patient and the healing process and follow up.

dr. grubby simply in the game of collecting money;occupying a bed, not treating a patient. Not interested in addressing and respecting the dementia patients.
I am a Cardiothoracic Surgeon specializing in minimally invasive and transcatheter cardiac surgery. I do not specialize in the treatment of dementia, although I care for many patients with the devastating disease. The unfortunate remarks, and derogatory use of my name, do not represent my practice.

She operated on my mother and did an amazing job with her. obviously she knows what she is doing i will continue to recommend her to others.
