Ratings for Dr. Jacob Green
I have never been to a doctor that was so condescending, rude and abrasive in my life. Dr. Green has extremely poor bed side manners and a total lack of compassion for me as a patient. I would not recommend anyone seek medical advice from Dr. Green if you are looking for a doctor to explain your condition or tests without being patronized, embarrassed and offended. I am a highly educated business person and Dr. Green talked to me and treated me as if I were a middle school student. He actually yelled at me because I could not complete one of the tasks he instructed me to perform during our exam. This guy is a piece of work…I am amazed that he has any patients left!
Very inefficient operation. Had to go back three separate times for mri's and cat scans because Green ordered the wrong tests. When Dr. Green finally ordered another mri, his office failed to schedule this last (and only relevant) mri after two weeks so I finally made arrangements with my new doctor. Dr. Green doesn't listen very well. I got the impression that he heard only that which fit into his preconception.
Went to the office with a person that knew him socially; gave me a mental status exam then when I couldn't recall something and couldn't do the quantitative part, he got up, walked to the door, and said, "I can't help you". He gave neither the mutual friend or me the reason. It was very odd. It looks like, from previous reports that he must dismiss a lot of patients for unclear reasons.
While many tests were performed, I really am no closer to a cause or condition. Dr. Green was very arrogrant and rude at times. In my opinion if he wasn't constantly patting himself on the back and telling his patients how great his is with neuro and pain management perhaps the patients would get more out of the appt. After several appts. and rude comments I told Dr. Green that I didn't appreciate it and needed his expertise on neurologic items only. He ended the appt. and pushed any further appts. off on another doctor there. I require a neurologist doctor's assistance but do not plan to return to this group.
Wonderful doctor! He tells it like it is! He is an excellent at dianosing and pain management. He has NO patience with drug seekers. I have a Masters in Nursing and I know if a doctor is good and this doctor is competent, professional, and knowledgable. I have been going to him for over two years and I fully trust him to make judgments and recommendations concerning my healthcare.
I took my husband to see him and when he finally asked me a question which required more than "yes" or "no", he yelled at me and told me to "shut-up! You're not the patient!" His standard answer seems to be "Go to the Mayo clinic and get a team to figure you out." That simply means I don't know and you're not important enough for me to care!
