Recently suffered a knee injury and sought the treatment of Dr. Greco. I have to commend him for his compassion and concern for my well being. He made a diagnosis and referred me for an MRI. MRI results showed a meniscus tear, and Dr. Greco recommended to a colleague...an orthopedic surgeon for further treatment. Dr. Greco is a man of integrity and operates his practice with the highest professional standards. The care, compassion and concern he showed to me was greatly appreciated. I reco

Dr Greco is able to explain your treatment in a simple way which is easy to understand and reassuring. His manner is kind, gentle and caring and the procedure he used to treat pain in my hip gave me great relief.

I have spinal stenosis and also suffered an injury to my back a little over a year ago. I have received two injections from him and they have helped tremendously. Dr. Greco is very knowledgeable, confident and professional. He is easy to talk to and his nurse Cynthia is the best!

Both my husband and I are patients of Dr. Greco. After seeing many doctors both in the Chicago area and in the desert, he is the first one to help alleviate post back surgery pain for both of us. In addition to his skill and competence, he truly listens to and is present for his patients. His caring, friendly manner is reflected throughout his staff. We feel so very fortunate to have found Dr. Greco.

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.
