I truly believe that Dr. Greene is not taking enough of an active role in my recovery. It has been 8 months since my surgery and I can barely walk - yet appointments have been scheduled 2 months apart. I contacted Dr. Patterson and I got the distinct impression he would take an active role in my case. I have not heard from him in months. I have been treated as an afterthought. I am suffering and only the therapists seem to care. At this point I wouldn't recommend the Clinic to my worst enemy. I NEED HELP!
