An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions.

Dr. Green has gave me relief and a way to control my allergies with patience, dedication and so much care. He is compassionate, so thorough in his examination and knowledgeable of his profession. Thank you so much, I am so deeply grateful to have him as my physician. A true professional in medicine! He is also very accommodating, I had the wrong time of my appointment, coming earlier for a couple of hours and more, and he and staff accommodate me in no time. The 10 minutes wait was nothing, and I was so grateful that because of my mistake, he took time to see me in his busy schedule! thanks again!!!

Would Not Recommend
Self-verified patient of Dr. Richard L Green - Posted on January 6th, 2014
This place is simply a money machine. They did not talk to me about my condition, treatment options, costs, or alternatives. They simply rushed me straight to testing and treatment - I kept thinking we would be discussing treatment OPTIONS or COSTS but none of this was explained. I requested additional treatment options and was told "no". I requested they code my visits differently for insurance purposes and they told me "if you don't like how we code, go to a different doctor." Very unprofessional.

Dr. Green is an excellent caring doctor; he is extremely knowledgeable in his profession. There was a little wait but itâs well worth it. The office staff are cheerful, always smiling and well very polite. The atmosphere is very friendly. I would recommend this doctor to anymore who is suffering from allergies and asthma.
Waits 4 ever

Don’t get caught in the trap I’m in. Doctor is cutting staff at patents expense. It takes more than an hour to get an allergy shot. Terribly overbooked practice with no options. Consider another practice. Remember, once you start it is very difficult to quit as you would need to start from scratch with another doctors serum. Shameful!!!
