Patient Comments (6)
in Goleta, CA |
Dr. Greaney is the consummate professional. He diagnosed my problem immediately and explained the medical options in a straightforward manner. I was able to schedule outpatient surgery for the next week and a problem that I had for over twenty years was fixed in less than an hour. My surgical recovery was painless and fast and I am back to all of my previous activities. Simply the best surgeon.
in Lompoc, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Greaney by my Doctor, Dr. Haig, to address a double hernia. He operated the next week and fixed the problem. I must say Dr. Greaney took the time to tell me exactly what to expect during and after the procedure and was most pleasant to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone.
Oxnard, CA |
I just had a mediocre consultation with Dr. Greaney. It was not worth the $20 co-pay. He failed to provide much information or advice. He was aggresive before I had a chance to say anything.
in Bakersfield, CA |
He is a life saver. He fixes problems. Very competent. The best doctor I have ever had.
Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Greaney is an uncaring, prejudiced doctor that does not want to help patients with complex health issues. He is not willing to treat the "difficult" cases or even consult other doctors. He seems to be there for the easy cases only. If you have more involved medical issues that require going the extra mile he is not your kind of professional. Very disappointing.
in Shell Beach, CA |
Doctor Greaney is a no nonsense and practical physician. He answered my questions, assuaged my fears, and was very professional yet compassionate. I left his office with confidence and a treatment plan for success!
