I was recommended to Dr. Green by my family doctor. I had both my shoulders replaced, and they had to be reverse implants. He is very professional in every way. He explained to me the options I had and always spoke to me with respect. I would highly recommend Dr. Green to anyone who needs their shoulder replaced. His staff is also very courteous.

Dr. Green is excellent but speaks to all his staff- from xray tech to secretaries in arrogant and unprofessional manner. He performed surgeries on both shoulders with success. It’s very uncomfortable listening to him bark, yell, use sarcasm to his staff, as his skills as a surgeon are wonderful.

Dr. Green exhibited a professional persona and had an excellent bedside manner. He was thorough, considerate, and clearly explained the surgery that I needed in detail. He discussed the recovery details as well. He answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns. I was completely satisfied with him and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Discussing my care with Dr. Green I felt as though he was honest, and sincere. He considered what was important to me and didn't push me into surgery. He gave me the time and space to talk through the best option for my individual case rather than just pushing me through a dogmatic protocol. Would highly recommend for those with shoulder injury, though I can't attest to surgical outcomes.

Dr Green is excellent. Rude employees. His male assistant does not have experience and is rude.

I had a Reverse shoulder joint replacement in Nov of 2016. The result is amazing. The chronic pain I had been experiencing is no longer & my movement is great. I can now do the simple things like washing my hair without pain. I thank Dr. Green for making this possible. My shoulder turned out so well, my sister is going to have hers done in the fall.

I am a double total shoulder replacement recipient. To describe what Dr Green and his ENTIRE STAFF have done for me in 500 chrs or less borders on a joke. He has literally set me free. NO shoulder pain....NONE. He took it from me. Afraid of the first, i pushed for the second. No 500 characters can explain or repay what meeting this man has meant to me and my family. If you need shoulder help, there are none better. Do as he asks. You will be rewarded. It takes two, he's got his part down. You?

I would strongly recommend Dr Green for extremely professional work. He performed reverse rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder last October: I have 160 degree range of motion, no pain, and will see him this coming Tuesday for possibly increasing my limits for use of the shoulder. I am presently limited to 20 lbs weight. He has excellent bedside manner and answers all questions. His staff is also excellent in all aspects.

Dr. Green came highly recommended from numerous friends (they call him the Shoulder Guru). I did not take their advice and researched the surgeons in my area. I had 2 different Surgeons and I still felt I needed better explanations about surgery and I needed more questions answered. I then travelled to Providence and met with Dr. Green. He answered ALL of my questions and explained every detail of what the surgery entailed. I had a Total Shoulder Replacement and wish that I hadn't waited!

I heard many things about Dr. Green and the most important one was that he was the best shoulder surgeon in the state. My examination was very thorough and he took the time to explain my injury to me and tell me all my options to treat it. My experience overall from start to finish was excellent. Did not wait too long and the staff was very kind and pleasant.

Eight years ago I had my right rotator cuff repaired by Dr. Green. Last year I had my left rotator cuff repaired. Dr. Green calmed my nerves and on both occasions explained the procedure so that I would understand what to expect. I am more than happy with the results!! I am back to work as well as quilting which was becoming harder and harder. His office staff was pleasant, accommodating and very patient with me. I highly recommend Dr. Green!!

Dr. is very competent but with no bedside manner. Getting an appointment is nearly impossible and the office staff is beyond rude.
