Dr. James C Greenfield has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I do not recommend this doctor or his practice. when you call there 9 times out of 10 you will get a voicemail and when you leave a message its seldom returned. once you do finally get them to call you back, you have to wait quite a while past your appt. time until your seen. then you will be seen by at least 2- 3 people . one takes your vitals and all then they sit you in a small waiting room and after a 1/2 hour or so an intern ( or sometimes 2 at a time ) will come in and ask you a million questions . then after another 1/2 hour or so the Dr. will finally come in and he listens to your problem. but its like talking to a wall... he already has his mind made up on how he is going to treat you from what the interns reported to him and left outside on your waiting room door. you time with him will be about 15 minutes and he doesnt seem to care what you have to say but what he figures is the best treatments for you. most appts I had at the Frackville office lasted about 1 and a 1/2 hrs. thats alot of time. especially if you have places to be and other things to do. now lets talk about BEFORE and AFTER you see him. the waiting room does not follow your arrival and appointment times. several times I was there and signed in ahead of my appt. time and someone else who was more familiar or a more preferred customer would come in after I signed in and they would let me sit until this person who had a later appt was seen. the staff is not that friendly after your 1st visit. its hard to get seen if your a newcomer it seems. the staff seems to be doing alot of nothing except maybe 1-2 people. I have called there to confirm an appt. and no one would answer but you would get voicemail then I show up even though they never returned the voicemail or confirmed the appt and there would be 2 or more people standing around talking and usually someone up front on the phone and I just cant see if there are that many people in that office why they wont answer the phone when you call... ??? now about the staffs knowledge of whats going on... most of them are interns in the doctor area the people making the appts at the frackville office dont know what insurances they take and tell you to call your ins. co. to find out. ( my ins. co laughed and said we dont know..." we are in another state. " good luck with this guy. he should know what insurance he will accept or his staff should find out for you. . so... I went there taking a chance . on my very 1st call where I actually got to talk to a person I told them I needed help with pain management and that I was thinking of leaving my present family doctor and they said sure we can help you with all of that. but when I got there and finally saw the dr. he said no we dont have anything to do with pain management and wanted to send me to a dr. 60 miles from my home ... but while I sat in the waiting room I saw and heard several people get prescriptions for pain meds and others calling in for refills. ... now the insurance bit.... I gave them my ins. cards and they said OK we can accept this ins. so I saw him a few more times until it was clear this was not the place for me. it just took to long for them to accomplish anything. So.. I decided this dr. was not the dr. for me and found myself back at my old family dr. and had him refer me to a pain management guy , I have been seeing the new dr. for my pain management 4 months later I get a bill for quite a bit of money . it was listed as what medicare didnt pay I dont think they ever bothered to submit it to my secondary carrier after medicare wouldnt pay it. 4 MONTHS LATER ?? I was going to pay it off $5 a month but figured I want to wipe my hands clean of this quack and his staff. so I paid it in full ( which wasnt easy ) . I had talked to other people who said he is kind of shady and I was hesitant about even trying him. and it seems his staff cannot even get any medical records from another hospital by sending a fax or by making a simple phone call... it does seem he treats some people different than others and his staff has 1-2 people that are actually in the know, the rest are young people looking to serve an internship. this dr. isnt that old either. I could easily see him having affairs with his interns or staff. as for his helping me ... it was just a temporary bit of help I knew I had to go elsewhere within 4 visits. but I had to go back a 5th time because they couldnt get all my medical records from other hospitals and even the ones I gave them ready . I left there without ever making a follow up appointment . do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. its a 5-6 yr old business... they dont have an established method of doing things and seem to be just learning as they go along.
DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR YOU WILL NEVER SEE HIM I WAS A PATIENT AT ONE OF HIS MANY PRACTICES YOU WILL SEE A RUDE AND CRUDE NURSE PRACTITIONER THAT DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SHE IS DOING AND BLAMES YOUR WEIGHT ON EVERYTHING SHE DOES NOT HELP YOU WITH ANY KIND OF PAIN LEFT ME IN TEARS FROM A SYATIC NERVE FLAIR UP AND GAVE ME TRIAL PACKETS OF TYLONAL ATHRITUS ALSO REFUSED TO SEND ME TO A PAIN MANAGEMENT DOCTOR AFTER MY CA SPECIALIST STRONGLY RECONMENDED IT... THE EXPERENCES IS FIGHTNING
