5/22/2017

Total confidence in *Dr. C. Greven.

5/16/2017

Dr Greven is a remarkable Doctor. I can't say enough good things about his knowledge, his expertise and his compassion. I have lost one of my eyes going to a different practice and heard about Dr Greven and he saved my other day. As far as I am concerned his is the best of the best and I am forever grateful for this Angel.

5/8/2017

I have been a patient of the Eye Clinic at Wake Forest Baptist since 1999, visiting 1-2 times a year. This is the first visit I've ever had in which I felt my attention from the doctor and the visit with him was rushed and I did not receive the kind of care that I associate with the clinic. I had come with a specific problem for which I was seeking answers, even if at a later time, and as I said, the experience just seemed overly rushed. If this had been my first experience there, I would not be back. I do know that the clinic had many patients waiting to be seen and the staff and Dr. Grevenfelt some urgency to have them seen as soon as possible.

5/3/2017

dr Greven is probrably the best health provider I have ever had he lets you know what he is going to do what to expect. he shows that he is concern and listens to you

I have a problem keeping my eye open when being examined but everyone was patient with me.

3/28/2017

The time I waited before being examined by the physician was appropriate, because my eyes were dilated for the exam. Dr. Craig Greven is an excellent physician & surgeon. He has earned my confidence and complete trust. I give him the highest possible rating.

1/7/2017

My care and treatment were all professionally done.

1/2/2017

Dr. Greven is very patient and verbal (explaining things to me). He always shakes my hand when entering the Examining Room and lets me know that I did well during the treatment....by telling me "Perfect" as he exits. Some may think a doctor may be talking to himself...but NOT Dr. Greven. He encourages his patients and happy that I have relaxed!!! (My treatment is an injection of medication into my eye.)
