we were sent to Children's by a provider in my son's pediatric group. we were very worried prior to this appointment because no one could tell us what was wrong. They made it seem like life or death. D. Greene however was very calm explained everything clearly and we left with the confidence knowing what was wrong with our son. thankfully he will be fine. Dr. Greene also took the time to ask other providers/interns in the office to look at my son because his condition is very rare. In her 15 years shes only seen a hand full of cases. this touched me because through my son and her efforts to teach more providers will be aware of the condition and will be better able to serve patients.
my appt was for 11 am and we were put in an exam room on time. we then waited, 2 hrs and ten minutes to see Dr Greene. No one came in and told us she had an emergency. Everyone went to lunch and we felt we were forgotten about as we sat waiting over 2 hrs after driving over 3 hours to see Dr Greene. needless to say, we were upset. No one was concerned that maybe we wanted to go get lunch too. I feel that the situation was handled very wrong.
she barely spent five minutes with my daughter, she didn't examine her at all... and said very little to me. we were just in for a yearly visit, but I'd still like more than a pass through from the doctor.
dr Greene is wonderful and has been extremely helpful with my child care and well being
We waited a very long time to see the doctor...nearly an hour past our appointment time
Everyone at UPMC was very helpful and friendly, from the check-in receptionist to the check-out. Everyone made my daughter feel at ease.
Dr Greene is very humble. She doesn't show any rush and takes time to explain things very well and give an opportunity to ask questions
it is nice to know that we were able to clear up our concerns about our son at a top notch medical faciliy. the appoinment was worth it
Everyone we interacted with at our appointment was very helpful and concerned about our sons health and treatment. Dr. Green and her PA were both very thorough and informative. they answered all of my questions and provided me an explanation of what would happen for future care for my son.
Dr. Green is outstanding! My family loves her! She's extremely knowledgeable & capable! We trust her judgement & we're grateful to have such a skilled, yet kind neurosurgeon for our daughter! She's kind, patient & always seems genuinely concerned! Dr. Greene is the best in our eyes!
Dr. Greene and her PA Katie were very kind and thorough with my son.
I was a little disappointed with the wait time, though I understand that medical offices become backed up due to unforeseen circumstances or emergencies, but it was very frustrating that she wasn't seen for an hour after her scheduled time. We were also not informed by the scheduler that she was supposed to get a CT Scan. I was unable to get the test done at the time due to my work schedule, so this will be another trip to Children's and we live an hour away. Again, I completely understand that sometimes a wait time can't be helped.
We felt that we were treated with respect and received expert medical care.
Excellent Dr Greene and her PA Jenna. very thorough and great bedside manner
Dr. Greene and her physician assistant are always the best. I always feel like my daughter and I are in good hands. My daughter is seen by many depts within Children's and the Neuro-Surgery dept is always the most efficient. Dr. Greene's secretary, Karen, is always so prompt in reminders, scheduling appt/tests etc.
Dr. Green's PA was very good with my daughter and made her feel at ease. She was more nervous when the doctor came in due to having so many people in the room, but she also interacted well with my daughter and explained everything to us well.
overall a good experience
Dr . Greene is kind and compassionate as are those which work with her. This experience although trying at times (diagnosis, surgery and recovery ) has had some bumps Dr Greene has always been prompt in returning calls, answering questions but most of all interacts with my daughter as a 13 yo. She speaks to her so she understands the process for next step in recovery. She has made this unexpected event doable with the least amount of unanswered questions and stress as possible. We are great full to have been under Dr Greene's care.
Dr. Greene is absolutely amazing. She has been providing care for our daughter since before she was even born. She has kept us informed, and we feel completely blessed to have had her care for our baby.
We had a great experience at Children's Hospital. All staff members were professional, compassionate, and very helpful.
Dr Greene did an amazing job saving my son's life.
Dr. Greene is great! She is very thorough and at a previous check-up reminded us of various symptoms to watch for with our son. We were hesitant to bring him for his last appt because we thought we may waste her time. She knew the right answers to ask our son to determine that there could actually be a problem. We appreciate her help and are thankful to have such great doctors to turn to.
This was an initial visit with this provider, therefore, some questions do not pertain. However, both my husband and myself were very pleased with how thoroughly Dr. Green's medical assistant questioned us concerning our daughter as well as with Dr. Green, who spent less time with us than her assistant but answered all of our questions and showed us MRI images explaining to us what she was talking about instead of just telling us. We really appreciated the deeper understanding that came from that.
Dr Green always takes time to talk with my daughter and answer questions. We never feel rushed.
very pleased with the discussion and lack of confusion. Many providers seem to be confusing to talk with but she was very direct and straight forward.
Extremely caring staff, thank you
Very good experience overall!
