Dr. Green replaced my shoulder in August of 2017. I will admit I was a bit apprehensive going into this procedure as this was my first major operation. Dr. and his staff made me feel quite at ease from my first office visit and, after the operation, my care in recovery could have not been better. I am well pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Green to anyone that needs shoulder repair. When it is time to do my other shoulder I will definitely a call Dr. Green again.

I met Dr. Green 18 years ago when a family member needed emergency surgery on their arm. He is my arm Dr. now and I don't think I could trust any other Dr. for treatment of my arm as I do him. He has years of experience. I have referred several family members and friends to him. All feel the same way. He is very easy to talk with and has a great bedside manner which is almost non-existent with orthopedic surgeons.

Don't book here if you want to be seen on time or even close to your appt time. At least an hour behind schedule always. Not sure why they even give appt times.
Elgin, SC |
Dr. Green repaired my elbow after I fell on it and broke my radial head. It's been a long recovery, but Dr. Green told me it would be. I believe he treated me well and 9 months after my surgery I am 90% back to normal which is not unusual from,ymtype of surgery. I feel like Dr. Green is a good doctor.

I love Dr. Green! I have been going to him for several years getting injections in my thumb joints. I have arthritis that has cause joint damage. He just did joint reconstruction surgery on my right hand 4 months ago. All of my former pain is gone and my hand is healing and doing great. I will be getting my left hand done in the near future and you can bet that I will be letting Dr Green do it. I have no complaints with him or his staff!

I had Carpal Tunnel surgery done by Dr. Green. I have a wonderful result and couldn't be more pleased. He is a great doctor and surgeon. I highly recommend him and his team!
in Leesville, SC |
Dr. Green operated on both of my hands. If I were not satisfied I would have stopped after the first one. He was very attentive to my questions and he answers in layman terms. His staff was very efficent & courteous. Only problem I had was the extremely long wait the day of surgery. The first time I waited 4 hours from the time of my appointment until I was taken to pre-op. No explication or reason was given. The 2nd was a shorter wait about 1 hour. This is for a 15 minute surgery.
Columbia, SC |
I've never been so disrespected or talked down to so much by a professional in my life. He walked in, recorded our convo, and barely introduced himself. He talked down to me like I was a child, didn't listen to any of my concerns or questions and acted like my issue was not important. It almost seemed as though Dr. Green did not believe what I was saying. He left the office while I was still talking to him. If you want someone who cares- HE IS NOT THE PERSON
in Blythewood, South Carolina |
Dr. Green is a very talented orthopedic surgeon who did an excellent job repairing my traumatic thumb amputation. Explanation of the process was thorough and his use of visual aids helped make the surgical process understandable.
in Pomaria SC |
I hated having rotator cuff surgery but I'm glad Dr. Green was recommended by a friend. He explained what needed to be done and did it. Since he has had the same surgery I felt more confident that he has more insight on whathe it feels like before and after and during rehab.
in Columbia, SC |
Dr Green was knowledgeable in both surgical and non-surgical treatment methods for my hand problem. Being a surgeon, I was pleased when he recommended the non-surgical treatment to reduce my cost, pain, and recovery time. He answered all of my questions and proceeded at a faster pace for my benefit since I don't' get into a lot of bedside manner polity.
