I recently had my second radiofrequency ablation in 2 years with Dr. Greenwell. My experience with Dr. Greenwell has always been a professional one and I highly recommend his services if you have lumbar /cervical pain. Dr. Greenwell answered all my questions and I received great relief from the procedure. His staff was also very friendly and made my visit awesome.

Totally non-compassionate, doesn't listen or care about patient concerns, poor technique and injection results. Seems to just go through the motions to collect the easy money. Doesn't seem to know California State laws. Likes the easy money, doesn't want to attempt procedures so must not have competence and confidence in himself.

I highly recommend Dr. Greenwell. His expertise and experience in knowing where to give injections have helped me with my pain. He is sincere, empathetic, and kind. He is highly skilled, and we are so fortunate to have him practicing here in Sonora. I have had two spine surgeries in nine years, and Dr. Greenwell helps me with my pain management when the debilitating spine symptoms come back, thus enabling me to live a normal life nearly free of pain.

Takes the time to truly understand the cause of the discomfort and discuss various treatment options. Appears to have a good bedside manner.

Doctor Greenwell is very through and very professional. I am a Polio victim since I was 6 Years old as I got older I have had more back and leg problems. Three other Doctors just wanted to plain it on POST POLIO SYNDROME. It was Doctor Greenwell who listened to me and found a nerve problem that he could treat that changed my life. Thank you Doctor Greenwell
