What others say about Dr. Greenberg. (Patients' Choice Award: 2008)
"Dr. Greenberg has seen me through diabetes, high blood pressure , and amazing weight loss of 137 pounds. Without his constant encouragement, I don't believe I would have succeeded. I will always be grateful to him for his caring attitude and belief that I could do it. "
"Dr. Greenberg is the best doctor I have ever seen. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 1993. I was so unhealthy. I had seen at least ten different doctors prior to Dr. Greenberg. None of the could provide me with relief. Dr. G listened to me and put me on a higher dose of synthroid. After a few weeks I was a different person, my hair was growing back. I felt more energy and more alert. I was well on my way to becoming a productive member of society, which I wasn't before. I will appreciate what he did for me forever. Keep your head up Dr. G. Your patients love you. "
"Dr. Greenberg is the best doctor I ever had. he is attentive, never in a rush and listens to his patients. Dr. Greenberg also took care of my brother as his physician for many years. I sincerely wish the best for him."
"I've been a patient of Dr Greenberg for many years. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful physician! Very knowledgeable, personal and kind. I was always able to get an appointment to see him on a very short time notice and he was so so helpful in cases of emergency! I've also sent to him my friend (she had pneumonia) who did not have any insurance and had very limited financial abilities --he was so prompt and helpful!!! And very kind! Dr Greenberg was a primary care physician of my son for many many years. I can truly say that he's saved my son's life. When my son told Dr Greenberg about his tiny lump in his muscle, Dr immediately sent him to the best orthopaedic doctor in the area -- in a week my son had a surgery at Georgetown hospital Cancer Center to remove the tumor(sarcoma)... My son is doing well now just because of the early detection of the tumor. Dr Greenberg is a real family doctor we are missing so much in our era of commercialism!"
"I have a been a patient of Dr Eric Greenberg for many years. I found him to be an excellent doctor who, unlike many other doctors, takes his time to listen. He's very knowledgeable and always remembered my health issues no matter how much time elapsed since my last visit. He was compassionate and he seemed to truly care about his patients. We need more caring doctors like him, who show compassion and the human element which most times is absent in doctors."
"Dr. Greenberg has been a very good doctor for me. He is very smart and knowledgeable (he's amazed me with the depth of his knowledge).

" Doc G is a good guy. He is smart, caring, understanding and just an overall good guy. He is difficult to understand but is a genius. I have been to a few docs in my days, but he is quick, efficient, and to the point. But if you want to chat you can."
"Dr. Greenberg is the most talented diagnostician and competent physician I have ever seen. He is charming and has a great sense of humor."
"After being to at least ten doctors for a thyroid condition, I finally received permanent positive results from Dr. Greenberg. He really listens to you. He's a little hard to understand but believe me he is worth the trip. I'll never go to any other doctor again."
