Dr. Robert Greenfield III, MD
I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon,specializing in conditions of the spine and joint replacement. My goal is to educate patients to the point they are capable of understanding all aspects of their care by reviewing their xray test results with them,using anatomic models and patiently answering all questions regarding their care. I ensure that each patient will understand their condition, the treatment options and expected outcomes. This should be the expectation of every patient. I have been in practice in Rockdale and Newton counties for 20 years, as well as treating patients at Emory Midtown Hospital. In a smaller community, I really get to know my patients, and that is one of the best aspects of working outside of the city. I am fortunate to have friendships develop out of physician-patient relationships; that is something you can't get in larger communities. These connections are valuable to me and I enjoy embracing that opportunity. My lifelong hobbies are photography, exercise and music.

Patient Comments (3)
in Conyers, GA |
I was given a correct diagnosis . Dr Greenfied explained the good bad and possibly ugly . He and his team did a 3 level fusion and did their part exceptionally well . I followed guidlines layed out by his office and gave myself every chance to recover. Back playing high energy sports . His expertise was very important in this surgery . They are a very busy facility . So direct, "hold my hand " through every step care is not what thy specialize in . Must be a driven individual to recover.

Told he didn't have time to go over all my ailments. He has other patients to get to. Don't go to this guy. Seriously, there are better options. Do not give him your money

I felt brushed off and he would not even listen to me describe my pain. I will be looking for a new doctor.
