Dr. Robert Greenberg is an excellent orthopedic doctor who has treated me for various problems that I've had, each time he was able to help me and solve my problem. He has a very professional and compassionate bed-side manner, very caring and I highly recommend him to anyone needing an orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Greenberg is straight to the point and told me what to expect with my rotator cuff surgery. He is very experienced and I definitely recommend him. He also treated my daughter with a fractured wrist and we were very pleased with him and his staff then also.
in Smyrna, TN |
Dr. Greenberg performed my medial meniscus surgery in January of 2017. I would highly recommend Dr. Greenberg and his staff should you ever require an orthopedic surgeon. From my first visit, he was spot on with his diagnosis, and the scheduled MRI confirmed his findings. He is very personable, and has a great sense of humor, in addition to being a most knowledgeable and professional surgeon. The entire scheduling and procedure went very smooth. I know that Dt Greenberg should be your 1st choice
Manchester, TN |
Didn't have time for me and over charged. Performed no examination on my hand. Was there a total of 5-10 minutes
in Shelbyville, Tn |
It was a rough start. But by the time surgery got here I could not ask for a better doctor. Dr. Greenberg done an excellent job on my shoulder. I have had little to no pain . He is always willing to answer any question and/or concerns I may have. It is easy to get in to see him and is always on time. My incision looks amazing. It is perfect. Thank you Dr. Greenberg for doing a great job.
in Smyrna, TN |
My first meeting with Dr. Greenberg was in the operating room for emergency surgery due to losing the tip of my thumb between two doors. I was unaware of the severity of my injury until the first follow up visit. Dr. Greenberg kept me calm & comfortable during the surgery. He took the time to explain what he did & what his concerns were & even drew a diagram for me at my follow up visit. He will be brutally honest but will say it in a very compassionate manner. He is very easy to talk to.

Great doctor, tells it like it is.

Dr. Greenberg is very professional, thorough and knowledgeable. i have been treated by him for various issues and will do so, if needed again.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr. Greenberg is one of the most conscientious orthopedics one could choose. I have seen him regarding 2 separate sports related injuries and on both occasions he has presented himself as a physician that can be trusted to explain to you what is going on and providing you with your options. He takes the time to know the patient and their lifestyle, and as such, his recommendations come with a great sense credibility. I trust him as my Orthopedic, and value his professional courtesies.
in Smyrna, TN |
He "repaired" my meniscus tear and 45 days later I was experiencing the same horrible pain in my knee with extreme swelling. It was so horrible and severely debilitating. Upon a follow-up with Dr. Greenberg his exact words were, " I fixed your tear so I don't know what else you want me to do." No exam no concern for the pain I was in. My PCM was furious and referred me to another surgeon who did repair the tear, reattached my patella and smoothed out the cartridge.
in Tullahoma, TN |
The doctor is easy to meet, very comfortable to be around, and informative. Had a total of 4 surgeries with him, all turn out well. I would use Dr. Greenberg again.
