Dr. Greenspan is one of the most professional and sincere doctors I have had the pleasure to be associated with. He has done surgery on my back twice now, and I have been completely satisfied with his work, professionalism, and sincere kindness, concern and care he has shown toward me. He is there for me on a moment's notice. Dr.Greenspan is a wonderful and talented surgeon who I would go back to in a heartbeat.
Some people evidently think Dr. Greenspan has little to no "bedside manner." I disagree. I saw him at his Glens Falls office today, and I was totally satisfied. He did not "talk down" to me, thank God. Too many Doctors do that, acting as if you could not "chew gum and walk at the same time."I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a neurosurgeon. I cannot comment on "Follows up after visit" because I have not had follow up yet.
Dr. Greenspan and his surgical team saved my life after I suffered a subdural hematoma and couldn't be flown to Albany. Follow-up after my release from the hospital was excellent and he took a conservative approach to more CAT scans. My impression is that he doesn't order procedures just to be doing something. He also explained clearly and answered all my questions directly. He is not a back-slapper or glad-hander; he is a surgeon. If I wanted a buddy to drink beer with, I would look for a buddy to drink beer with. I don't want to repeat the experience of my injury, but if I were to repeat the injury, I would want Dr. Greenspan as the surgeon.
I was only seen for about 15-20 minutes. I was told I should be referred to another specialist, there was no surgery needed. A referral and report was to be sent to my pcp, and we were supposed to get a link to the practice website. We have nothing, our pcp has nothing. We called the office and was told there is nothing listed in the file from the dr. "Sometimes he hits the button too soon and things don't go through". I was transferred to someone to inquire about the website link, but she never picked up the phone. He may be well trained, but he shouldn't be dealing with the public. A ZERO for follow up. That is the lowest we can go! We didn't even get a summary sheet for the visit when we left. One of the worst experiences ever.
