He also allowed me a choice for frequency of follow-up visit and is diligently watching my non-surgical hip for osteoarthritis. A comprehensive visit and a lot of ground covered in brief period of time.

Reviewed on May 14, 2019

My first contact with Dr Green was when he was still a Crystal Clinic physician, he performed a knee replacement there. I literally panicked when he left there to persue his career elsewhere. I had heard that he may have gone to Cleveland Clinic & was so relieved when I heard he had taken up residency at Medina. I've been with him & his associate, Corky Davis, ever since. He has done a total hip on me & my wife. He is truly an asset to this hospital, I have a great deal of respect for him & Corky. I believe he performs at a level worthy of this hospital's status. I will remain as one of his patients up until the time he moves on. It's a priveledge to be one of his patients.
