Specialties

Dr. Phillip E Green has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

huge disappointment

I've suffered for years with headaches, and neck and shoulder pain. I was referred to Dr. Green. I met with him and he seemed very nice and said that he wanted to set me up with a certain neurologist and then would do a nerve block. He said I would hear from his office in just a couple of days or to call them. After a week, I called. The lady looked at my chart and said he hadn't done the typed dictation. She seemed nice and said she would personally handle it and get my appointment. After no word another week later, I called back. This office person didn't seem to care and said the dictation hadn't been typed yet and would fax it to the neurologist herself. It's been 4 weeks and I've yet to get the office to handle setting up my neurologist appointment required. I've been in pain and could've found a new and caring doctor over these past 4 weeks. Unfortunately, I've never been treated this way by a physician and/or office and took them at their word. Now, I've lost 4 weeks of being on a waiting list somewhere to receive help. This has been a frustrating situation. If an office cant even return a call in 4 weeks, Im afraid to even think of being treated there! Now that I've read the reviews, I feel this may all have been a blessing from God that I didn't receive treatment from this dr. Seems there are several complaints of his procedures and staff. I will be searching for a good and caring doctor and a staff that can be honest, helpful and do their job. Their incompetence seems to be a blessing in disguise!

Dr. Green has always been a very knowledgeable, caring and experienced doctor with my care. The only downside is his office personnel. If there is an emergency they are horrible at reacting. They do not know how to hand that situation and/or ignore you and don't call you back. Typically there are no emergencies but I have had two occassions where I really needed to know information after a procedure and they did not know how to answer basic questions. Dr Green, himself, is wonderful.

I was referred to Dr. Green for Trigger Point Injections and I can honestly say until my visit to Dr. Green's office I have never had someone fall asleep while inputting my information into their system. I then waited an hour and 20 minutes (when I arrived at the office I was the only patient there). Once Dr. Green did finally show up, he didn't bother to explain exactly what it was he was doing and I had to ask what I was being injected with. My appointment lasted exactly 14 minutes and when I asked about any type of follow-up care I was told there wasn't any and as if that isn't enough, my pain is worse now than it was prior to the injections.
