Disappointing. For years I've had exceptional experiences at Planned Parenthood. However, I followed up with an OB-GYN regarding results and after months of scheduling, I was finally rescheduled with Dr. Greiger. Two weeks later, on the day of the procedure, I was asked to re-fax over the results (they were apparently lost) and asked to sign an agreement stating that myself and the physician both knew why I was having the procedure done. Once in the room, I was asked to leave my clothes on as Dr. Greiger had only JUST looked at my Hx results. She insisted that there was "no reason for me to be there," unprofessionally arguing that I was overreacting, despite following her colleague’s advice. After I complained that I had put down a procedural co-pay, she defensively said I could withdraw it. Walking out to the main office minutes later, she had already billed me for a "20-minute consultation." I called Billing and they immediately apologized, removing all the charges.

I met with Dr. Greiger for the first time today and she is so comforting, caring and gifted. She eased a lot of my anxiety and concerns. She was very patient with me and I can tell she really cares. I am so happy to have found her.

Dr. Greiger took care of me through my first pregnancy (twins) and now for our third, and she has been exceptional. She takes the time to answer every question and I always feel like she truly cares about me and my comfort and concerns. Her knowledge, warmth, and calm demeanor always make me feel at ease and that I am fully informed about my health. It is hard to find a doctor who is so easy to trust, and I would recommend her to anyone!

I would highly recommend Dr. Greiger! She honest and true to her word. I like that she does not sugar coat anything and will be honest with you. She and her team are supportive and I love that she has flexibility when it comes to making appointments.

To the person below, a pap smear is part of a regular, healthy check of your body for cervical cancer - it does not matter (and has absolutely nothing to do with) if you are virgin or use tampons because you can develop cervical cancer without ever doing either. If you want preventative care for cancer then you get one. Yes it hurts and is scary the first time, but everyone experiences that, that's not something unique to your daughter.

makes patients wait for over 30mins. Always late and "stuck in traffic" for morning appointments. Very frustrating.

My daughter saw this doctor. She was told she needed her first pap smear. My daughter is a virgin and does not use tampons. Dr. Greiger was rude and very abrupt with her and made her feel awful!! My daughter was scared, the procedure hurt, which actually she ended up not able to do, and when she asked my daughter if she wanted her to stop, she did and just left the room. She may be fine with adults who have been through this before, but I would NEVER recommend her for a first internal!!!

I absolutely recommend Dr Greiger to all. She is caring and has wonderful bedside manners. If not for her I would still be in pain and discomfort.

I have been a patient of Dr. Greiger for 3 1/2 years and through 2 pregnancies. I originally became a patient when she was at Southboro Medical Group and followed her to Wellesley Women's Care. While Wellesley Women's Care is farther away from my home, it is well worth the extra time spent driving. Dr. Greiger is extremely knowledgeable and always willing to spend the extra time to answer any/all questions. I can't recommend her highly enough!
