Outstanding physician! Dr. Greene has now replaced both of my hips. He listens to any concerns, answers all questions, is very polite and focused on my needs. His surgical skills are excellent. I have recommended him to several others who have also used Dr. Greene at my recommendation, and they are extremely pleased. By having a direct phone number to his PA, any of my questions and concerns that occur when I am not in the office are answered and resolved quickly. The CCF main call number at the call center is frustrating with long waits,numerous transfers, and lost calls, so I try to avoid that number. Access to patient care is poor if the CCF main phone number is used. I've learned to get a business card with a direct line to that office in each office I visit.
