Cardiac Surgery / Cardiothoracic Surgery / Cardiovascular Surgery

About Jacob Kriegel

Jacob earned a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in American History and Biological Sciences from Columbia College in New York, NY. He then went on to obtain his Doctorate of Medicine from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, NY.

He completed a Biodesign Innovation Fellowship at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas where he developed a medical device that is currently being studied as a potential new therapy for congestive heart failure. He completed his Cardiothoracic Surgery training at the New York Presbyterian Hospital at Columbia where he gained in-depth experience with multiarterial revascularization, valve repair, complex aortic disease and mechanical circulatory support techniques.

Jacob feels that empathy and compassion are critical to delivering great care. He feels that it is his job to guide his patients and their families through the process of cardiac surgery so that they can feel comfortable and confident. Although cardiac surgery is something he practices every day he keeps in mind that surgery is a very daunting experience for patients, filled with anxiety, uncertainty, and fear. Together he and his patients work towards a goal of getting them back to living life and feeling better. The technical aspects of the operation are only one part of the equation. Everything leading up to and after surgery is equally, if not more, important for achieving a great outcome.

Growing up Jacob was surrounded by influential practicing physicians, such as his father and many aunts and uncles. His father, a cardiologist, would have Jacob join him on his rounds in the hospital. It was there that he was able to see what a privilege it was to care for people and help them through challenging times. He chose to be a cardiac surgeon because of its high impact and potential to dramatically improve or save people’s lives. 

When not at work he enjoys skiing, hiking, and playing tennis.

Provider Ratings

Why aren’t there any ratings?

We do not have a rating for this provider for one of the following reasons:

  1. Provider was newly added to our survey process and has not yet received the minimum number (30) of survey returns.  Check back soon for results!
  2. If this provider’s biography page does not specify practicing at Southcoast Physicians Group or a Southcoast hospital site (Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital), he/she is affiliated with Southcoast Health Network but not employed by Southcoast Physicians Group.  Our affiliates are not included in our survey process.
  3. If this provider’s biography page specifies practicing at Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital, without reference to an outpatient practice, he/she delivers care in the inpatient hospital setting only; inpatient surveys do not include questions about individual providers.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
