What People Say About Dr. Gregory Middleton, MD

If there was a half of star I would give. I went to see Dr. Middleton in February 2019. He was very dry and offered no real long-term advice on managing my osteoarthritis. I would not recommend him to anyone. He was not helpful at all.

Nice guy. Professional demeanor. Listens carefully, but never has any useful advice on how to get healthier. Saw twice. Explained to him how PCP's meds had odd side effects. He said they we caused by underlying condition - WRONG! Said very helpful cortisone shots given by pain mgmt specialist were only offering temporary relief, yet he offered nothing beyond lengthy physical therapy, which wasn't helping after 15 sessions. He treated me like I was a test subject. Won't be returning.
