Dr. Greco is very compassionate and tailors a step by step program for the patient in order to determine the best pain relief for your symptoms.

I had an intra Articular injection in my hip by Dr Greco, wow what a relief! It really worked and the experience was so wonderful. His bedside manor is so friendly and caring as his other staff members were also. His nurse and himself talked me through the procedure and I even got to watch. I was suprised, no pain, he was so gentle! His nurse Olivia sat with me and made sure I was safely out the door. I would defininitely reccomend Dr Greco and guess what, the injection started working that day.

Just had an epidural injection from Dr. Greco; the entire experience was excellent; the admitting and presiding nurse was outstanding; Dr. Greco was also outstanding: a.) he explained what he was doing throughout the procedure; b.) his application of the injection was perfect; I would give this experience an A+.

Dr Greco performed a series of epidural injections into my back (spine). His technique is absolutely flawless. I was expecting pain or discomfort and at each of the sessions I felt nothing!!!!. He was remarkably kind and caring during the procedure as was the surgical center staff. I am not satisfied with the intake required at each follow up visit. I was asked exact same questions; whose answers are not likely to change. (Like my smoking habits in the past and other redundant questions).

I just seen Dr. Greco for the first time today for my wife who is handicapped. Dr. Greco lacks interest and point. JUST STUPID! He came in the office with one toe in and the rest out the door. He did not sit and talk to my wife were as he just asked a few questions an left in less then three minutes. A doctor that rush's his duties is not a person you wound want for any medical treatment. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND UNDER ANY CONDITIONS DR. GRECO.

Dr. Greco is very thorough, listens, and adjusts treatment to information you give him. He has a great sense of humor and bedside manner. In operations (I had an epidural to the cervical spine), he and his staff are watchful and caring. I am one of those who despite meditation during waking procedures will begin to go down near the end. They monitored all of my symtoms until my blood pressure was up, checking for each stage, lying to upright, and wouldn't let me go until they were assured I
My husband was turned away in severe pain due to an insurance issue..he had insurance, they just would not verify !!...The office staff is the worst we have ever encountered. Dr. Greco will be made aware of the treatment we received as an Eisenhower physician, you would expect to be treated with care and respect..not the case with this office staff.....shocking the way my husband was treated... I will be reporting the issue to management.
I apologize for you and your husband's poor experience during this stressful time. I hope that I may be able to offer you services again in the future as your experience is not at all indicative of my patient care standards. Office management will be informed.
Dr Greco is awesome! but the front desk staff is unhelpful, somewhat rude,and seems like they would rather continue discussing they're personal lives with each other then helping the patient/ customer. To bad dr Greco doesint fire them and start over!
Thank you for your kind review of my medical care. I apologize for the lack of ease with your scheduling. Please visit my website dgrecomd.com to leave detailed feedback.
