I would absolutely use Greenberg again and would recommend him to a friend. Dr. Greenberg did laparoscopic surgery to remove my tubes and ovaries. He was great about answering my questions and even better at dealing with my anxiety. The surgery went well and I had minimal post op pain. For this reason (and his background and experience of course) I think he is a skilled surgeon. Dr. Greenberg called to check on me at home the day after my surgery and then called again several days later to let me know that the tumor he removed from my ovary was benign. I feel lucky to have found him. He and his staff treated me with respect and kindness. An added bonus: he has a good sense of humor and is quick to laugh!

Dr. Greenberg has been great during my first pregnancy. He always spends tims answering my questions after he completes the required portion of my appointments. I hope the person that wrote the negative review below realizes that hardly anything happens at the appointments unless you have a problem. Urine sample, weight, blood pressure, heart beat check. However, he WILl spend a lot of time with you after those things. I ask 3-4 questions per visit and he really elaborates very thoroughly. He's funny and laid back, too, which puts me and my husband at ease. We love him!

First, I would fair to say that Dr. Greenberg is a very intelligent man. The only issue was that I did not like the expereince within his office. Since this is my first preganancy, and I moved to a new city, I was hoping for a joyous expereince with my doctor, husband, and myself. It felt, however, that I was just another number in the office rather than establishing a "patient-doctor" relationship. I felt that he was off-putting because he would conduct very quick visits, and afterwards I felt like we were just another face in the crowd. When I called him about an infection, his receptionist tried to diagnose me over the phone and instruct me on what to do. I understand that she works in a medical practice office, but what credentials does a receptionist have to tell me what to take for an infection. Even so, she yelled it around the office, in direct violation of the HIPPA laws, and totally embarassed me in the process. Prior to that, I called about a back issue, and the office took a week to respond to my calls. Dr. Greenberg seems very occupied with other things, and after reading the reviews, he seems like someone to go to for other woman issues, but maybe not the best person for that "personable" pregnant experience.

I've been seeing Dr. Greenberg for a little over a year. I have many issues, endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, etc. This man is so compassionate, he understands the grueling pain women like myself go through with endo and he really cares. He's a straight shooter, will bring you into his office to talk about treatment plans. He did surgery for me this past week and he was very kind. He even called me that the evening of my surgery to check and see how I was doing. I have never had a doctor call me on his own like that. Usually the nurses or someone in patient follow up will call and see how things are going, but the doctor himself...no way. Wonderful, talented doctor.

I have had Dr Greenberg since he left began private practice. He has a warm kind heart, with a sense of humor. His diagnoses with me have been on the mark, but I have mostly healthy. Little goofy but lovable..You are in good hands

Extremely knowledgeable but still talks to you in a compassionate and caring way. No b.s. he tells the truth and is great at what he does. If you are lucky enough to find him, you are in very good hands.

Dr James is very good in treating fibroids and many uterine gynecological problems, well recommended. Waiting time in the office can be more than 15mins but I am very please overall.
