We traveled from Rochester NY to see Dr.Greenfield for a second opinion for our daughters Chiari Malformation. From the moment we meet him we felt at ease. He took the time to explain things our other surgeon never did. We decided to move forward with surgery and have no regrets. Dr.Greenfield has allowed her to be a normal little girl, no more feeding tube, no more apnea. THANK YOU Dr.Greenfield!!!!!

Dr. Greenfield is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. He took all the time we needed and answered all of our questions. It was worth the trip from Syracuse, Ny. If we need anything in the future we know where we will go. Thank you Dr. Greenfield and staff.

We traveled from VA to New York City to see Dr. Greenfield because there were no pediatric neurosurgeons in our area who saw the problems with our son. We were not disappointed. Dr. Greenfield and his staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable even arranging for us to stay at the local Ronald McDonald House. I would very highly recommend him to anyone looking for a kind, extremely knowledgeable, and patient neurosurgeon. He was fantastic.

I was desperate by the time I reached Dr. Greenfield. He quickly diagnosed a condition everyone else missed. He took time to explain it and answer all of my questions. I never felt the least bit rushed. He performed surgery to correct the problem. The surgery has greatly alleviated symptoms and improved my quality of life by 1000%. I will be ever grateful to Dr. Greenfield.

Dr Greenfield diagnosed my daughter with Chiari Malformation after 2 plus years of seeing doctors for debilitating symptoms that no other doctor could diagnose. I took my daughter to 3 of the best hospitals in the country. 2 of them told us her MRI was normal and the 3rd aknowgled the Chiari, but felt that being measured under 5mm, it was not the cause of her symptoms. Thankfully, Dr. Greenfield did not dismiss us as others did. He performed her surgery and gave us hope. We are so grateful!

Dr. Greenfield was amazing. He explained everything to us about our daughters Chiari Malformation. This was our second opinion. We couldn’t be more happy with our visit. He recommended trying to wait a little longer before we do surgery. We were glad to hear he wasn’t just ready to cut into her. He wants other tests ran which were not suggested my our other medical provider. When it’s time to have surgery we will be reaching back out to him. He was amazing with our daughter. Thank you!

Dr. Greenfield is an expert in his field. He genuinely cares about his patients and gives patients enough time to ask questions while going reviewing the diagnosis and treatment plan. His NP Davina is fabulous and very knowledgeable. The office staff cannot be more accommodating and caring than they already are. I’m traveling from FL to see this MD and I work in the healthcare system. That says a lot in itself!

Excellent. Doctor is respectful and receptive to answering your questions. He is not intimidating or mean spirited, like some other doctors. Certainly worth the trip to manhattan to find a kind knowledgeable genuine specialist. I feel extremely grateful to have the opportunity to know we have seen the best and he gave us peace of heart.

Dr Greenfield is a caring and very skilled neurosurgeon. We traveled from Ky to see him about my 4 year old granddaughters Chiari and he did her surgery. We were out of the ICU after 24 hours and everything went well. I am an Rn and he is the best ever!

Dr. Greenfield is an extremely knowledgeable and compassionate neurosurgeon. When my daughter was diagnosed with Chiari 1 malformation and was in excruciating pain, he was the only doctor we found who was straightforward and confident in is approach. He performed surgery to correct the malformation and was amazing from beginning to end. Dr. Greenfield and the surgical staff were wonderful throughout the surgery and hospital stay. He literally gave my daughter her life back!
