Dr Greco is fantastic! She listens and explains everything at a level that is easy to understand. She answers all questions and works with all my other specialists. I would highly recommend her.

I had one visit and waited 2 hours. When the results of my test came in, Dr Greco didn't call me. Her assistant gave me the results without expianation. The results required one as I was concerned since I have one kidney. I donated my other kidney.. I called back 5 times and have still not been...more

Doesn't listen well, dismissive. Intimidating. Discomfort or pain should be expected, like that's not particularly relevant to her. Stresses compliance. She needs to keep in mind other existing medical conditions besides CKD.
