in Grayslake, IL |
Dr. Greenspan is very caring, listens and makes decisions based on YOUR needs - not just whatever is the latest and greatest. I highly recommend him.
He's fantastic. He is caring, knowledgeable and always makes time for his patients. If I ever have a question and call the office, he personally calls me back, usually within an hour or so. I think he may be the only doctor I've had that personally returns calls. The staff is excellent and friendly and helpful. I consider myself lucky to have found this practice - my quality of life has improved dramatically since I started seeing Dr. Greenspan.

He listens. He is smart, and his insights are perceptive and help me understand my issues and feelings. He is sympathetic in an appropriate way. He is never impatient. He remembers my past issues, conflicts, and relationship concerns, and he integrates them into current discussions when pertinent.

Dr. Greenspan is a caring and understanding professional. Something constructive always comes out of our sessions. He knows his patients and recalls previous discussions. That provides a comfortable and meaningful dialogue. At times, he will challenge a patient's thinking which I find beneficial and not confrontational. He gives appropriate attention to medication needs and considers possible interactions with existing medications. He is always accessible and has a wonderful staff.

A friend recommended Dr. Greenspan to me 13 years ago when I was suffering from severe anxiety. I had been seeing my GP for the anxiety and he had me on tranquilizers, sleeping pills and controlled release Paxil. I was in loopy land/orbit with so many drugs and was not getting any better. I went to see Dr. Greenspan, and within 2 weeks he had me totally stable; off sleeping pills, tranquilizers and on the CORRECT dose of Paxil. I continue to see Dr. Greenspan 2x/year. He's a GREAT doctor!

in Beach Park Illinois |
After suffering for months from depression which was not alleviated by any medicines that my family doctor prescribed I was referred to Dr Greenspan. Immediately he took control and built up a very effective regimen of medication and ended my paralyzing depression. Over the course of years of treatment he has tweaked my medication for various reasons even taking into consideration my formulary and the cost of name brand drugs. I call him my medicine magicia. I recommend him without reservation
