Ratings for Dr. David Greenberg
Hi there, Last July and throughout the year I went through numerous procedure from surgeons at a hospital and all of them were a botched . I had put my faith in surgeons thinking as most would that they know what they are doing , I was wrong. I was so discouraged all of sudden my life seem to revolved around my feet/ toes which never happened before I found myself for the first time in my life having a to deal with the mess they had done and the pain and the inability of even walking very far, I had not only endured before but after each procedure at this hospital, I started to see in my future walking with a walker which I never have before but had started to use , in other words I was almost giving up the idea that I would actually walk as I normally as I did before that's not an exaggeration either . Finally a nurse who was coming to my place for a while suggested Dr Greenberg I didn't have much hope because of what happened to me before hand. Despite that I decided to make an appoint and low and behold he knew exactly what the problem was and has been looking after me ever since . I never been more grateful in my life for someone to really listen to me and to diagnose the correct problem and to fix it . I not only see a ray of hope but sunshine at the end of this tunnel . He already has done a few procedure and soon a few more, for someone like me who became a puddle of anxiety and fear for anyone to touch my feet/toes because I did become fearful , I had nothing to fear after all , the care that Dr Greenberg and his staff have provided me with by far the best I have ever received in my life . I was truly amazed by the knowledge and expertise and the attentiveness frankly to me, mind blowing . And I don't use a walker anymore either . I never expected much before I had a consultation with Dr Greenberg . I am not the type write any reviews in fact this is my first one but I couldn't help myself I wanted to share with all how Dr Greenberg and the staff continue to help me. I'm full of appreciation and continue to be in fact so much so I mention to anyone who wants to listen to go see Dr Greenberg you wont regret it, I even mention to my family doctor about Dr Greenberg and the care I received that he started recommending Dr Greenberg to his patients . Thank you so very much , J Gould.

David has been in practice for a long time and I mean a long time. Took several weeks to get an appointment and then had to wait for ages to be seen which means after all these years in practice can still not manage his time. That turned me off but he seemed knowledgeable and seemed to diagnose my problem even though the visit was just mere minutes. I am still deciding if I will follow up with the prescribed surgery.

Thank you for your review. It's very helpful for us to read these ratings as it gives us better insight on where we need to improve. We are aware that there are times when our patients have to wait longer and we are definately working to fix that . Each patient is unique in their foot related problems. Some are quick appointments and some take longer. We give every patient the time that they need to address all their foot ailments. Sometimes, this can back things up a little, especially if their is an emergency. We apologize to patients that have to wait longer than expected. We care about all of the needs of our patients and strive to give you the best experience when you are here.

Be careful what you say to the person below. I also had a cyst in my foot. When I went to my family doctor, she told me no cyst. In fact, it was my doctor who was wrong. I too had a cortisone injection. It helped temporarily until the cyst got bigger and I had more pain. I had surgery to remove it from Dr. Greenberg and I have never felt better. To the comment below, Dr. Greenberg makes recomendations based on the knowledge he has had for 4 decades. How can a recomendation for surgery deem someone a "crook"? Would you say the same thing if it were covered under OHIP? Btw...at no time was I ever on crutches. Sugar coating a review to suit your own needs is in my point of view, disgusting!!!
I saw Dr. Ron Barron in the summer of 2015 and was happy with my visit and orthotics, and wanted to get a second pair. Dr. Barron is no longer with Dr. Greenberg's office but they said I could see Dr. Greenberg. I simply wanted a second pair. After waiting 45 minutes for a 5 minute appointment with Dr. Greenberg, during which half of the time he tried to sell me a $220 calf brace, I left with him scoffing at Dr. Barron's prescription for my orthotics and suggesting a whole new route, even though they were working out perfectly fine for me. Dr. Greenberg's office also seriously overcharges. $730 for a pair of orthotics, including having to pay $45 for adjustments in advance even if you don't need adjustments!!! I called a few other offices, which in hindsight I should have done before, Dr. Hayles charges $65 for new patient visits compared to $85 for Dr. Greenberg, and $425 for orthotics including all the scans and adjustments.
If a king is only as good as his court, then a doctor is only as good as his staff, and the staff at Greenberg Podiatry is amazing: polite, professional and knowledgeable without exception. They work as a cohesive team and they enjoy their work. Doctor Greenberg himself is an epitome of a proverbial "ideal" doc: after his visit you will feel better whether he does something tangible or not. In my case I had to undergo an unexpected foot surgery after a tumble down the stairs, and he and his staff were as caring and informative as I could ever wish. I can't offer a valid opinion on pricing, because I am from the States and tend to be in general favorably impressed by Canadian healthcare costs. Still, I think Dr. Greenberg's charges were very reasonable, especially considering the amount and quality of the post-op care.
Responding to this guy who posted below. Get your facts straight. The other podiatrist being sued was not "trained" by Dr. Greenberg. He was simply on probation working at the office. If it was recommended to you that implants were a good option for you then it's probably because it was. From my own experience with him, he gives the best possible recommendations to help solve the problem. Isn't that the job of a good practioner? Meanwhile....you went with the more conservative method. Orthotics.....so what is the problem exactly? Hello....I think after 42 years in practice his reputation speaks for itself.
