As someone else has said, Dr. Greenspan can be a bully. He can also be nice which can cause anxiety b/c you never know which mood he'll be in. Thankfully I only had 2 interactions with him. 1 time he was a bully and the other time he was calm and pleasant. If you suffer from anxiety I wouldn't recommend him! He is skilled at injections but I think his clinic forces them on patients in exchange for pain meds. No injections? No meds. Rather you need or would benefit from an injection or not.

The front office lady Tram Fultz is worse receptionist/ front desk I ever encounter. I was stuck in traffic and construction and it takes 1.5 hour instead of 1 hr to get there. But I am still 10-15 minutes before my appointment time. Tram gave me bad attitude on phone and in person that I did not fill out online registration form and come half an hour for appointment. Yes I forgot about the form and I was stuck in traffic and still has 10-15 mins before my appointment time to fill out the form. But she said “the doctor cannot take you because you did not fill out forms in advance and do not come half an hour early. Therefore you need to reschedule the appointment and refuses to take me. I request to speak the doctor after I finish paperwork maybe 10 mins into 1 1/2 hour appointment and she said doctor cannot see and talk to you, he is with another patient. How can you schedule someone on my appointment slot when I arrive 10-15 mins before appointment? Ridiculous. worse customer service

My husband & I retired from the the USAF after 26 years of service. During this time we transferred from one place to another and I always had to start over again with a new doctor, and from scratch having to go through the entire process over and over again. Even though I've already had all of the test injections and all of the diagnostic testing done I had to start this process again once more, however DrGreanspan and Johnny with nuvectra for the SCS gave me hope I haven't had in yrs

I have learned to not see a doctor who owns his own practice. He only helps who he wants, profiles you as a drug seeker. i'm 25, and it was his idea to give me oxycodone and he just kept me on that for too long. my last office visit, I confronted him that I'm an adult and he only takes me seriously if I brought a parent or my boyfriend. and I'm 25... he should treat me as an adult. His staff mostly is nice especially the younger girls, but he is on a powertrip. DO NOT SEE HIM.

I would highly recommend Dr. Greenspan to my family and friends, and have. The number one thing I appreciate the most, Dr. Greenspan, is when you have an appointment at ( American Pain Institute), you will be seen by a highly knowledgeable doctor who listens to you and actually wants to help you....nothing less.

He is absolutely wonderful. I am petrified of needles and he completely understood. I barely felt the needle and he explains everything he is doing which I like to know and I think he truly cares and he listens. I have had some horrific experiences. I am never going to another doctor. Thank God for such a wonderful person. I highly recommend going to him. I know he is going to help me get rid of some of my pain. And he is highly intelligent which is awesome and he is funny. Thank you Doc! Elizab

I was discharged before my fourth visit. I was going weekly. I was discharged for not , repeat not taking my medicine lorazapram. I took my suboxone nut because I was weaning myself off, he discharged Mr. He has called withdrawal meds dome of which I never hesrd of. I would understand if I was taking something illegal buy I wasn't. Im very nervous of what's going to happen. I just don't believe it. All he had to fo us not prescribed it anymore.. I find this very distressing. I'm shaking now.

DO NOT GO to him. He puts you on very high dose pain medicine. Then finds a reason to drop you. And has is office people tell you not himself. The he sends some withdrawal medicine to a pharmacy that I never used at all while I was seeming him. Because he sent to the wrong pharmacy they couldn't check on interactions with my heart medicine that could of killed me.

I was seeing Dr Greenspan for back pain, during this time one of my pee test showed Morphine, at first I didn't know why, the next day I remembered that I was at a cookout and having a lot of pain, someone told me they had a pain med that was same as what I was on. I called her and asked her if it was Morphine, she said yes,(very low dose) DR Greenspan put me on probation but called on day of my appointment and said he wouldn't see me! Very unprofessional, I am 57 and do NOT abuse drugs,

Do not go to this Dr. He only helps who he wants to. His staff will laugh at you when you turn your back! The place is a joke!
