Dr. Greenbaum Says:

As far as "CP" is concerned- I am an MD because I do- as you agree in your ratings - take the appropriate amount of time with each patient in order to appropriately address their individual concerns, one by one. Most of my colleagues hire "techs" - nonprofessional technicians to take the patient's history, and perform individual parts of the exam so that the MD can, as you say "process" patients...

I am visiting Dr Greenbaum for the past 20 years.. He cares a lot about each patient he has. He is so good that my daughters & my niece - are under his excellent supervision.. He is very much dedicated to his profession. My blessings to him & his family. Meenu

This is the most thorough eye exam and the best explained findings I have ever received. There was little wait- but I would have gladly waited much longer rather than be rushed through, as I was at my now former Eye MD.

He is a great doctor (knowledge and patient treatment). However, I noticed few things quite often and therefore I had to change my doctor:His assistant overbook appointments and the doctor processes patient slowly, hence the big crowd. Last time, I got an appointment at 9, I arrived on time, and there were 2 patients ahead of me, I was not processed until 10 and I left the office and there was still 1 patient ahead of me when I left. Dr. has to realize that our time is important too.
