I was escorted to a room by Shannon within five minutes of arriving. Dr Greenky arrived a couple minutes later, and after catching up on my history, he immediately took care of the reason I was there. I have been a patient of Dr Greenky at SOS for over 15 years, three surgeries along with several appointments. His professionalism and how I’ve always been treated is nothing short of excellent. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Dr. Greenky replaced both of my hips and I have never had a problem since. In fact i felt like he gave me my life back! He is very patient, explains everything in terms I can understand and always asks if I have questions. I have recommended him to many of my friends and relatives. I think he is the best.

I had left hip replacement Jan 2018. I instantly realized my left leg was shorter then my right leg. Dr. B Greenky did not agree with me kept saying everything looks good. I still have pain in my thigh and now have daily low back pain which I never had prior to surgery. This has effected my daily life. I realize Dr. Greenky has a good reputation but I was not one of his success stories. It was suggested to get a nerve block for my back pain. He never suggested getting MRI. I don’t know where to turn. The doctors I met with at SOS spend about 5 minutes and can’t wait to walk out that door. Before surgery I should had MRI to better evaluate my hip and spine. Don’t know what to do. It’s no fun knowing I will have a limp rest of my life.

Dr Greenky replaced my rt hip twice. The first replacement lasted 9 years before the plastic broke down; not his fault. The second replacement was never right, and after suffering through two years of pain I saw two other orthopedists who confirmed it was improperly affixed. My third replacement, done at another facility and by a different doctor, has been working fine for six years.

My first appointment with Dr. Greenky was a very good and comforting experience. Dr. Greenky put me at ease almost immediately. He is easy to talk to, seems to have ESP and made me feel he is as good as everyone says he is. He speaks in terms you can understand. I'm feeling much better about my upcoming surgery. I'll have my second appointment with him in two weeks just before my surgery.

I would recommend dr Greenkey to everyone that need a hip, or knee replacement. Dr Greenkey gave me a much better life after being in pain for six years. No one seemed to know what was wrong. They thought it was my back. When I found out it was my hip, I was lucky enough to get dr Brett Greenkey. I cannot say enough about him. Fabulous results have come from my surgery.

My experience was as great as it possibly could be. I had a carpel tunnel operation in the 90s. The results were successful & have remained that way 25 years. Dr. Greenky's professionalism, attitude, & kindness haven't changed. He also takes as much time as the patient needs. This is the exact reason why I came back to Dr. Greenky. He will be doing an operation on the other arm soon. My finance' was with me. He was extremely impressed. Both of us would also refer him to anyone.

Dr. Greenky explained exactly what the procedure was going to be and what to expect after my total hip replacement. All information was accurate. My recover has been wonderful, and the pain way less than I had expected. For the past 5 days I have only used Tylenor for my pain. At 10 days post op I am able to walk/move around my house with the aide of a walker, do some stairs with the aide of a cane. I'm very grateful to Dr. Greenky.
