Patient Reviews

“I am writing to express my experience with Dr. Robert Greenleaf, who performed two laminectomies as well as spinal fusion surgery on me on Friday, February 26, 2021. During 2020 I lived with significant pain every day. I had exhausted every possible remedy, such as pain injections, physical therapy, and acupuncture. Nothing helped. The decision to have the surgery was one that weighed heavily on me. However, I finally reached the point of no return. Dr. Greenleaf is an exceptional physician and surgeon. I am in awe regarding how well I have felt since the surgery, and every day I feel better. I had my follow-up appointment with Laura Ann today, and it went very well. Dr. Greenleaf is a master of his trade, and his bedside manner is stellar. Throughout the process of occasionally meeting with him during 2020 to discuss the pros and cons of surgery, he was always honest about the nature of the surgery and the recovery and healing trajectories. He never promoted the surgery; instead, he was informative, thorough, and realistic. He is a God-send to me. I can NEVER repay what he has done for my health, state-of-mind, and quality of life. My recovery is going better than I could have ever imagined, and that is because my surgeon is outstanding. I am singing his praises and I will until I take my last breath (please excuse the drama, but I am sincere). If there is ANYTHING I can do to promote my indebtedness to Dr. Greenleaf, please let me know. I want to recommend him to anyone who wants to be pain free and who wants to feel the joy of being so. Very truly yours.”
