Accepting new patients

I treat each patient as an individual. Like many orthopedic foot & ankle specialists, my career began in orthopedic trauma. My practice has a dual focus, on orthopedic trauma and foot & ankle disorders. I favor non-operative strategies whenever possible, but I am ready to intervene with surgery to optimize outcomes. As Chief of the Foot & Ankle division at Columbia Orthopedics, I perform all kinds of reconstructive surgeries ranging from simple tendon repairs to complex limb realignment, ankle replacement, arch reconstruction, and arthroscopic procedures.

Patient Comments (12)
in Bronx, NY |
I fell down stairs and broke my ankle in three places. After spending a night at a trauma center I was transferred to be treated by Dr. Greisberg and his team. My ankle was reset properly and I received superior care. My surgery was a challenge and four months later I am walking unassisted and back in a gym. I am grateful to Dr. Geisberg for his professionalism, accessibility, care and surgical skill. This team is with out a doubt the best in the city.
Paterson, NJ |
This doctor is incompetent, he misdiagnosed my condition making me waste 6 months of my life. He miscalculated the severity of my broken ankle and the condition I have with osteoporosis. He didn't schedule me for surgery and the broken ankle didn't heal. In six months my ankle had only healed 10%. I changed doctors, and had a competent doctor do the surgery, but still I had to suffer for 6 months before having the surgery.

If only I could put more stars I would! Dr Greisberg is such an outstanding and caring Doctor; he surpassed all our expectations! His expertise and level of care are unique! He was so caring about my well being before during and after my surgery. He listens and accommodated to all my needs. And the results: thanks G-od outstanding! Everyone is impressed by the results and my physical therapist told me in his 35 years career he never saw such a well done surgery!
in Bogota, NJ |
Dr. Greisberg is amazing. He performed surgery on my ankle and it is stronger than ever. I no longer have the pain and discomfort that I previously experienced. I would definitely recommend Dr. Greisberg to others.
in New York, NY |
The best! I only wish he had operated on my foot in 2003, instead of the surgeon I used. I recommend him constantly.
in Kew Gardens, NY |
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to Dr. Greisberg for his fantastic job on my toes. He performed the surgery in March 2017, and my recovery post-surgery has been outstanding, with incredibly minimal pain. I also appreciated the deep care I received from Dr. Greisberg during my subsequent visits. I am extremely happy with the results on my toes. Thank you, Dr. Greisberg, for enabling me to walk again without any pain. I was so fortunate to be your patient! You're an Exceptional Surgeon!!!
Ughhh! Arrogant, self-absorbed, cold. Turn off. Regardless of alleged skill.
I am terribly sorry to hear you had a bad experience with me in the office. I strive every day to give my patients my best, including thorough discussions in the office. The comments you have written are opposite to the things I work so hard to deliver and I can assure you that I take feedback very seriously. If there is a way I can help you, or make up for the bad experience, please call me in the office.

I had a great experience with Dr. Greisberg. He stepped in midway through my Achilles tendon recovery; first surgery had been done somewhere else and gotten infected. Dr. Greisberg did the 2nd surgery and was super for the entire journey: working with the infectious disease doctor, seeing me through (and doing!) the 2nd surgery; and overseeing my recovery and rehab. He was straightforward, clear and friendly the entire way. I hope to never see him again ;) but he's who I'd pick for anyone else.
in New York, NY |
I've not had a better experience with a surgeon. Dr. Greisberg knows his stuff and knew how to get me out of the pain I was in. He is optimistic about outcomes, LISTENS well and has had answers to all of my questions. And he is courteous. The surgical experience was organized and went extremely well. Even the decision about the kind of anesthesiology that was used during my surgery was explained in detail to me. The nursing staff and surgical coordinator were quite helpful.
in Oradell, NJ |
Went to him as a second opinion after there was growth under my toenail. He is very knowledgeable and cared about my needs. He helped save my senior track season and preformed a minor surgery on my toe/toenail at the beginning of summer. When complications would arise, he always found a solution. Very efficient and gets to the point.
Weehawken, NJ |
He barely looked at my x-rays of my bunion. I guess because I wasn't a surgery candidate he didn't want to waste much time with me helping me with pain management. I found him to be rushing, matter of fact, and even said his foot looks better than mine (ah duh you never wore heels in your life). I felt like I was dismissed when I was expecting more solutions than just Advil or Alieve and comfy shoes. Maybe he's a good surgeon, but compassion and help with pain management isn't his strong suit.
in NYC, NY |
Unfortunately Dr. Gresiberg's poor communication skills very much got in the way of treatment. He might be an excellent surgeon, but when asked questions he continually talked over me and ignored my questions and concerns. It made it incredibly hard to trust him with my care and after two visits I switched doctors only to discover that in his not listening, there were a number of things he had missed in his diagnosis.
