Dr. Greenky replaced 2 knees and 1 hip with little or no problems. 2 years ago he replaced my right hip and sent me off to rehabilitation with no restrictions. In a lot of pain, PT was impossible. On the day that I was to have my stitches removed, the hip was x-rayed. My femur was broken. I COULD SEE THE BREAK IN the x-ray. I was sent back to the hospital, re x-rayed that evening and scheduled for revision surgery the next morning with another surgeon. Surgery was cancelled a few minutes after I was being prepped for anesthesia. Was the fact that the second x-ray showed NO break the reason? the difference between the two x-rays? I was lying down for the second and standing for the first. Post op x-rays are taken on a prone patient. The break, which probably happened during surgery, was not visible. Greenky denied that this was the case. I am unable to walk without a cane or pain. The cost has been both financial and in my daily life. Different post op image needed.

The best doctor! Dr. Greenky did a total left knee replacement on my husband. It's 6 weeks today. My husband followed all the instructions from Dr. Greenky and the physical therapists. Fantastic results. This doctor really knows his stuff. I would recommend him to anyone that's looking for a knee replacement ANYTIME!

Dr. Seth Greenky meet with me a couple times for my total left hip replacement surgery. He explained every step of the surgery and answered every question I had and more. Even moments before my scheduled surgery he came to see me and put me at ease. He did such a great job with my left hip replacement I had him do my right hip replacement surgery a few months later. I can not say enough good about how I was treated, how much time he spent with me, and what an amazing job he did on both my hip replacement surgeries. Wish I could give 6 stars.

I’m so happy I found Dr.Seth Greenky & SOS. A friend suggested him since he had done her knee surgery plus another Dr. in Auburn also advised me to see him, so glad I listened to them. I like Dr. Greenky so much and he is so easy to talk to and get any questions & concerns answered fully.

I first met Dr. Seth Greenky approx. nine years ago during an emergency situation in which I seriously broke my right ankle. My son suggested Dr. Seth Greenky be contacted and he ultimately performed the repair surgery in such a professional manner, I have NEVER had one minute of trouble with the ankle. Years later, Dr Seth Greenky performed total RIGHT & LEFT knee replacement & hip surgery due to numerous injuries sustained in my employment, sports and osteoarthritis. ALL PERFECT Paul Clapper

I don't even know how to begin saying how wonderful Dr. Greenky is. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a knee replaced.. He has done both of mine this year, July 6th, and October 26th. I feel like a new person. He is the easiest doctor to talk to, and even has a great sense of humor. I was so worried about having surgery on my knees, but once I got to St.Joes for the surgery, I couldn't believe how wonderful everyone was and how everything went so good.. Excellent surgeon !!!!!!

While I respect opinions about Dr Greenky's surgical skills, I have not chosen him to do my knee replacement. The first time I consulted with him, he was condescending and demeaning, showing absolutely no respect for me as a human being. When I explained that I was experiencing a great deal of pain, he replied, 'What do you want me to do? Prescribe heroin?" He was in and out of the exam room in a flash. For such a serious surgical procedure, he showed a callous disregard.

I was referred to Dr Seth Greenky by my family doctor for possible surgery. I assume he is a skilled surgeon but my initial meeting with him was disappointing. He was obviously rushed, running behind. He cut me off several times and made snide, disrespectful remarks throughout the very brief appointment. He spent far more time recording his remarks to his secretary than he spent talking to me. I appreciated his honesty, but I felt that he could not have cared less for me as a patient.

Dr. Greenky recently did my right total hip replacement. He explained everything I was to experience and never rushed me. At a followup appt there was an incident that needed attention and he put everything in motion to get me taken care of outside of his realm of care. I can't say enough about his care and the care from his nurses and administrative staff. They are the total package. I would recommend him to everyone I know who needs hip replacement.

I went to Dr Seth Grenky for a pain in my groin, only to find out after x-rays that it was my hip. I had a hip replacement last February. I have no pain and everyone can't believe I have a new hip. Dr Grenky is understanding and definitely is informative and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure being his patient.
