Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
Dr. Greenwald has been our family doctor for over 30 years. He delivered my daughter. Jim has been not only a great diagnostician but a great human being who treats people with respect and kindness. He saved me this year through a diagnosis which over 12 doctors and emergency rooms could not figure out. I was allergic to a drug and he knew it within one minute of me telling him my symptoms which I had been living with for over a year as I had moved out of the area. We thank God for him.
