in Rancho Mirage, CA |
This doctor refused to see me unless I got Xrays. I went to get Xrays and then she had her receptionist tell me "we don't see anything on your X-rays, so you should just take advil for your pain and exercise. I went to see another doctor who diagnosed me with Ehler's Danlos Syndrome. I have a friend who now has CANCER from Dr. Greenwald's experiments. Be wary.

Her service and the way she treats her patients has rapidly declined over the last year. She has become easily agitated when pushed for answers. Very defensive and unwilling to compromise. 3 years ago I would have given her 4-5 stars. No longer. It's her way or the highway. Not willing to listen and compromise with her patients.

Incredible bed-side manner. Explains everything clearly. Extremely knowledgable about treatment opportunities. Would highly recommend her!
