Patient Comments (3)
Clearwater, Florida |
I was extremely disappointed in this practice. Dr. Greenidge either can't or won't explain much. This practice is very corporate. Patients are not treated with respect. The fees for getting copies of medical records are very expensive. They do however, make a big deal about passing out free cookies and coffee in the waiting rooms.

dr. greenidge is the best doctor we have ever had for our daughter. he loves his patients and is very caring, professional and experienced. we love dr greenidge and we highly recommend him.

Good doctor but can be quite abrupt and rude; does not listen to patients. I have had two surgeries with him and seen him 20+ times in the last six months. I have tried to be pleasant and have a short list of questions---at times he is decent, other times quite rude. I would change doctors if I knew of someone else close by who was a good glaucoma doctor.
