Great follow up to other doctors.

July 20, 2014

Jessica Greenwood was very sweet and addressed everyone of my concerns.

July 13, 2014

Dr. Greenwood is very knowledgeable and compassionate, I am very glad that she is my primary doctor.

July 12, 2014

I'm not sure why this follow-up appointment was scheduled, as the test results from the previous treatment were negative, and I had no complications. I received no new information during the visit. I was glad to have the extra reassurance from the doctor, but I felt this could have been just as easily communicated via phone or a message on Mychart. When I've had biopsies or certain treatments in the past, follow-up appointments were scheduled only if the test results or post-treatment complications required it.

July 12, 2014

Dr Greenwood answered all my questions to my satisfaction & took time to listen to what I needed to tell her. She works with me very well & I appreciate how she allows me to set my own course of treatment with her guidance. I have great confidence in her abilities & she is very easy to communicate with.

July 10, 2014

good

July 05, 2014

Dr. Greenwood is fabulous. She wanted to see how I was after surgery. I feel like she really cares.

June 29, 2014

Dr. Greenwood was very thorough in her thought process with me. She let me know her plan for treatment in the office and post care.

June 01, 2014

Although I am completely satisfied with the visit, the healthcare provided asked questions that I had already answered when the assistant first interviewed me; just not the best use of anyone's time to repeat questions.

May 18, 2014

Dr. Greenwood is amazing - I have already recommended her to others.

May 16, 2014

Dr. Greenwood is an excellent clinician. She is patient and kind and provides consistently excellent service

April 24, 2014

I always have a fantastic experience with Dr. Greenwood. She carefully listens to my concerns.

April 04, 2014

I really like Dr. Greenwood.

March 22, 2014

Even though the doctor was recovering from an illness and was not feeling up to par, she was attentive and concerned and took all the time I needed to address my concerns and answer my questions.

March 17, 2014

Dr. Greenwood is very personable. She uses good listening skills with her patients and is good at communicating information to them.

March 16, 2014

I recommend Dr Jessica Greenwood to all of my colleagues and friends. She is the best person I have ever seen here or elsewhere.

March 04, 2014

Dr. Greenwood is a fantastic listener and always addresses all the concerns that are brought up. She is very thorough in her explanations.

February 17, 2014

I have already recommended Dr. Greenwood to many friends from work. She is a terrific listener and great communicator. She helped me with a tricky situation and got me the referral I needed. She definately goes the extra mile.

February 13, 2014

Dr. GreenWood is excellent. She took care of every concerns that we had and explained very well. She is so caring. I highly recommend Dr.Greenwood.

February 10, 2014

I found this doctor to be a concerned and inviting listener. I was hoping for this response because my previous caregiver did not communicate well with me. I am fortunate to be fairly healthy so I did not see this previous doctor often, but I thought it would be best to switch physicians in case I might need more frequent care as I age. I was particularly impressed with the amount of time Dr. Greenwood took on this initial visit. I know that doctors are busy and need to attend to many people, but it was reassuring to know that she was listening to my history and suggesting preventative habits that might be helpful for the future. I believe I can sense whether or not I am in the presence of a caring individual or with someone who is treating me in a patronizing manner. I am grateful for this physician who treated me in a dignified manner.

February 03, 2014

Dr. Greenwood was very courteous, professional, included me in the decisions that were made and overall provided great care.

January 06, 2014

Dr Jessica Greenwood is the best Dr I've had in years. I hope to continue to see her.

January 05, 2014

Overall, good job!

December 30, 2013

Really needed additional info on dosage of cough medicine based on weight.

November 08, 2013

Dr greenwood is very personable, and I feel is knowledgeable and competent

November 04, 2013

Overall Dr Jessica Greenwood was very kind, courteous and professional. As always she showed concern for me, provided great care and gave recommendations for follow-up care.

October 28, 2013

I did not have any concerns about my medications. We did not discuss any follow up.

October 28, 2013

Jessica Greenwood is fabulous. She really listens. I realize that due to policy she is limited to the time she can spend with me, which is not her fault. I just wish management would realize that 15 minutes is not enough sometimes.

October 08, 2013

Greenwood is an excellent provider. She is caring and great to work with.

September 30, 2013

Dr. Greenwood was very kind, thorough and professional as always. She showed great concern for my overall health and recommended the next steps to be taken to improve my health.

September 09, 2013

Dr. Greenwood was empathetic, caring and kind. She's a terrific doc!

September 02, 2013

This was such an excellent experience with Dr. Greenwood. She went the extra mile as far as time with me and fully discussing all concerns thoroughly. The only thing I would like to have discussed further were possible side effects of medication for depression. I felt no rushing, no irritation, nothing negative. I felt that she really validated my concerns and was willing to move forward and discover the underlying cause of the acid reflux/heartburn issue. I felt that she really wanted to help me. Thank you so much, Dr. Greenwood. The phlebotomist, Lisa, is the best I have ever had--no discomfort at all.

August 26, 2013

Dr Greenwood is the most caring and competent MD I have ever had the pleasure of being a patient of.

August 19, 2013

I have already recommended her to others. she is quite possibly the best Dr. I have ever encountered.

August 19, 2013

When seeing doctors, I enjoyed seeing Dr. Greenwood. She was thorough and prompt when working with me in getting my diagnosis.

August 12, 2013

1st rate experience.

August 12, 2013

she is the best physician I have ever had

July 16, 2013

Good experience.

July 08, 2013

I appreciated the printed instructions for my new prescription and the time Dr. Greenwood spent explaining what to do and expect.

June 25, 2013

during the visit itself, i was a little disappointed by all parties. i also found that phone calls were not really the best or most enjoyable form of communication with nurses/PAs. however, communicating by email on mychart directly with the doctor has been great. very responsive. also, the front desk staff are always respectful and responsive, and caring.

June 17, 2013

I enjoyed getting to work with Dr. Greenwood. I felt that she listened to my concerns and that she tried to get to know me on a more personal level.

June 03, 2013

All good. Wish turn-around time on non-urgent emailed questions through MyChart were within advertised time frame. But they were all non-urgent. Maybe if the PCP cannot respond when MyChart says they will, it could be changed to one week turn-around for non-urgent questions.

May 14, 2013

Dr. Greenwood was very courteous, professional and inclusive. She provided guidance and direction in regards to what steps I should take and the follow-up that would be necessary.

May 13, 2013

This was my second visit with Dr Greenwood and she is excellant. She listened to my needs and addressed the problem. She is fabulous.

April 29, 2013

I just wish she were available for my 26-yr. old daughter's health coverage!

April 23, 2013

I feel I may have found my tribe.

April 01, 2013

First time seeing Dr Greenwood and it was a great experience. She was friendly and understanding.

March 26, 2013

Good

March 18, 2013

Dr. Greenwood spent more time with me than any other Doctors I have seen in the past. She was very thorough, friendly and respectful. She provided quick followup on all tests that were performed and helped set goals for me to work toward in regards to improving my overall health in preparation for the next followup appointment in 3 months.

March 18, 2013

My doctor took extra time to solve a difficult problem concerning the needed medication. It is no longer made in the US & she came up with the brilliant idea to have it compounded which the University Pharmacy was able to do for me.

March 12, 2013

The only reason I may not recommend the doctor is because you may have to wait over a week to get an appointment with her.

January 30, 2013

My doctor made it clear to me that she cared about my health, and that she took me seriously. I have had trouble in the past talking to doctors because I smile too much and am shy, so they think that I have no health problem. That is not the case with Dr. Greenwood.

January 28, 2013

I find Dr. Greenwood very pleasant to work with, very knowledgable, sharing with me why she might want me to do a certain thing or why something is happening in my body. On a scale of 1-10, her bedside manner is a 10! I also appreciate her quick communication with me through the My Chart email & that we make all decisions concerning my medications together as a team.

January 20, 2013

I love Dr. Greenwood. I think she takes each patient as a new opportunity to think about the causaility of the illness and how to approach the patient in terms the patient can understand and do. She is definately not of the "one sickness, one cure" school of thought.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Greenwood is great!!

December 19, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is not my PCP but if I already did not have a great one, I would go to her. She knew what she was doing, made sure that I was informed and answered questions that I had.

December 10, 2012

Everything Dr. Greenwood discussed with me was "spot on!" She addressed all of my questions and concerns. I also felt like she was NOT in a hurry. I already have recommended her to other family members and friends.

November 26, 2012

Dr Greenwood is very approachable, caring and open to discuss concerns. She is able to see things from the patient's perspective and provide interventions with that perspective in mind. This ensures excellent compliance and understanding.

October 30, 2012

She was fantastic. This was a delicate area but she made me feel totally at ease and so did her assistant.

October 29, 2012

My Dr. was very caring and her diagnosis was excellent.

October 18, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is a great provider. really nice and very professional dr.

October 15, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is an excellent provider. I have been seen by other good physicians at Madsen, but Dr. Greenwood is outstanding. She takes the necessary measures to inquire about the symptoms, issues, challenges I am undergoing. Dr. Greenwood also is conscious of explaining the medical terms/analysis. Furthermore, Dr. Greenwood is the only doctor that has taken preventive steps to finalize my health issues. In addition to the excellent care she provides, Dr. Greenwood is friendly, thoughtful and sensitive to the various health issues shared.

September 18, 2012

I was a little frustrated with the wait time between when the (extremely nice!) medical assistant took me to an exam room and when Dr. Greenwood came in. But... she was incredibly nice, knowledgeable, and approachable. Even with the same wait I would return because I liked her so much. But it would have been nice if the wait was a bit shorter, or I was at least kept updated about the wait a bit more.

September 17, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is an amazing woman. She truly cares for me and probably all of her patients, she is interested in my well being and never hurries me out of the office. I love this doctor and have and will continue to recommend friends and family to see her.

September 10, 2012

Dr. Greenwood was very personable and treated me with dignity.

August 27, 2012

I think that Dr. Greenwood is helpful, listens well, and is a very good doctor.

August 16, 2012

I had been a patient of Dr Greenwood before and am very happy to be able to see her again with my current insurance. She is very kind and empathatic.

August 15, 2012

Very happy with Dr. Greenwood's care!

August 13, 2012

Jessica is GREAT!!!!!!

August 06, 2012

I went in with no answers and left with no answers. Good and bad news. I would have liked to get more information about what could have been going on, though. I didn't like leaving with no conclusion.

July 30, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is the best physician I have ever seen. I recommend her to as many people as I can when they ask who I see. She's super

June 18, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is always properly concerned with what I am needing. Better than a lot of doctors I have had in the past that were not connected to the U.

April 19, 2012

Dr. Greenwood has been so very encouraging to me concerning my health. She takes the time to explain and has encouraged me to keep up my exercise and eating habits. She was very pleased with my progress. That made me feel very good and I want to continue to do better.

April 12, 2012

I felt uncomfortable at first because I felt as though Dr. Greenwood was a bit rude. I did not realize that when I received my PAP in January, the doctor also conducted a regular physical exam. Dr. Greenwood asked me right away, "So, why are you here? What do you want me to do?" and I felt stupid. I came to get a physical exam because I assumed that bloodwork is done (which did not happen during my PAP). She assumed that I knew I had a physical and seemed to think I was there for no reason. After I explained why I was there she became more friendly, but I did not get a good first impression.

March 10, 2012

Dr. Greenwood is quite possibly the best physician at the U of U. She spends quality time with me and I am certain she must be as good with all of her patients. I really feel like she cares about me and I can tell that she loves her job.

February 23, 2012

very good experience

February 11, 2012

Dr Greenwood she is great provider takes her time with patient

January 12, 2012

Although I have seen my care provider multiple times she did not remember me and although I realize that she sees many patients it would be nice if she at least had some recognition of me seeing how she is my main care provider.
