Dr. Mark D Green has the following 2 specialties
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

What a disappointing experience I had there. Dr. Green is a Narcisist without any empathy for "Addicts" .The complete opposite of their website. He flat out told me "he doesn't believe me" when I told him exactly what happened. This guys a jerk. Don't waste your money on their "intake". He insulted and talked down to me the entire time. I left and burst into tears. He has it all wrong, he's the one who needs help.
Ran into lower than expected ratings for Green... felt urgency to leave my own review: talented, true acedemic, extensive breadth of knowledge, active with industry peers, professional, sincere, unafraid, quite compassionate, reacts quickly, truly listens and doesn't let me get away with anything. I too see him for anxiety and depression, not substance abuse, and consider myself lucky to have found him. The last two reviewers state they weren't seeking services for substance issues--their statements leave me thinking maybe they should have been.
I agree with the reviewer above who said Dr. Greeen is probably good as an addiction treater. Unfortunately, he is NOT a good treater for non-addicts. He does not believe in PRN's; in one situation multiple doctors who saw me at the ER were horrified someone with chronic anxiety attacks did not have a PRN, and actually tried to get in touch with him an extra time because they didn't believe me. Also probably because he's an addiction doctor, his attitude towards benzoes is even more troubling. Obviously benzoes have many many bad sides to them, but they DO serve a purpose, so to refuse nearly entirely to use them ...again, for a patient whose chief complaint was debilitating anxiety and had a history of having been on them without abuse for many years ...was almost cruel. I felt the closest to well I had in months when I took the Xanax the ER docs prescribed me, until my next appointment with Dr. Green whereupon he D/C'ed them, saying, he "doesn't like to use benzodiazepines." In conclusion, Dr. Green is a mixed bag. He can be great for some things, is very compassionate, and is really smart ...but if your problems at all center around anxiety FIND SOMEONE ELSE. I learned the hard way.
Dr. Green is extremely bright and seems compassionate and caring - for the most part, his bedside manner is excellent. I have been seeing psychiatrists for nearly twenty years, and both the rest of my treatment team and I had really high hopes when I started seeing him; it was pretty devastating when I ultimately had to walk away, mentally ranking him among the worst doctors I'd had - certainly the one who caused the most damage. Talking to him can be very comforting, and if he weren't so prohibitively expensive, I might recommend him as a psychoanalyst. Unfortunately, when it came to the psychopharm component of my treatment, Dr. Green was more than a dismal failure. He was at times extremely reckless, leading to my having suffering medical complications on more than two occasions; he also repeatedly refused to acknowledge that any of my emerging symptoms might beside-effects or otherwise due to changes he had made, even when the PDR, other specialists of mine, and some of the drugs' own websites made it crystal clear that my problems were actually common reactions to have - a doctor who won't take responsibility for his actions is a dangerous thing; aside from cutting existing medications, he only seemed comfortable making small tweaks and addressing minor issues, and essentially tried his hardest to find someone else to take the reins any time I went into crisis; by far the worst thing about Dr. Green, though, was that he didn't seem to know how to treat a patient who DIDN'T suffer from addiction. I have a suspicion he is an excellent doctor in that field and his manner seems like it would be very helpful to people suffering from addiction, but for other psychiatric conditions, especially complex dual diagnoses cases - and I actually hate to say this because he was nothing but kind to me - I would steer clear of Dr. Green.
