Verified Patient Reviews
He is great! Very knowledgeable, reassuring, and kind.
He was very professional. He took the time to listen to me.
Great first visit. He is smart, thorough, thoughtful and kind. my headache problem is not yet solved (some tests need to be done) but I feel in very good hands...
life changing. only wish i had found him sooner.
I felt he was professional in his approach, thoughtful, and provided a strategic plan we will follow. He was also encouraging that perhaps we can get a handle on diminishing my headaches.
The only issue with this appointment was some confusion between the doctor's office and Zocdoc.
Dr. Green is THE best Neurologist in New York and beyond. He is very smart AND he listens!!!!!! I was referred to him from another doctor (not neurologist) at a different hospital who said, "If I was in need of a neurologist, Dr. Green would be my first choice even though he is not with this hospital." I couldn't agree more!!!
Dr. Green is an amazing neurologist. I would recommend him to anybody.
He is the most intelligent and kind doctor I have ever encountered (besides my brother)
The best headache specialist in NYC.
Very personable, friendly, knowledgeable, seemed genuinely interested in my symptoms and in me as a person.
My wife and I are both physicians. We brought our daughter for a second opinion. We were all wildly impressed with all aspects of Dr. Green's care. He is a remarkable physician.
I need to travel quite a bit to visit him but definitely worth it. He is very familiar with my rare condition and the office is very efficient. The visit is quicker and less frustrating than visits to doctors in my area and helps offset the travel time.
Warm, listened, respected patient, explained things clearly. I'm looking forward to working with him to resolve some of the issues we identified.
