I recently had a consultation with Dr. Greenbaum because his Yelp reviews were so strong.  Well, I'm joining the crowd of fans.  The way he handles his patients is so refreshing.  Doesn't rush you, wants to explain everything to your satisfaction, answer all of your questions and super honest.  In the end, I was sent to a specialist anyway but even after one visit, I'm a fan and would refer him.

I'll keep it short as the other reviews speak for themselves - I found Dr. Greenbaum and his staff to be excellent in all capacities and I could ask for nothing more.  I highly recommend him.I first saw him for a third opinion because I knew something was wrong with my knee and he saw something on x-ray that 2 previous orthos missed! If you need a first, second or even third opinion......see him! More...

Dr. Greenbaum performed my ACL reconstruction/Meniscus surgery in May and I couldn't be happier. This was my first time having any sort of surgery and I researched every orthopedic surgeon in Orange County before coming to Dr. Greenbaum.  I initially planned to meet with a few surgeons but I felt so comfortable with him that I scheduled my surgery asap.I'm now 6 weeks post-op and everything is going great.He's extremely knowledgeable and thorough.  It's great when you truly feel like a surgeon has your best interests in mind in every decision he makes.I could not recommend him more More...

Dr. Greenbaum is an outstanding orthopedic specialist and surgeon. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and highly competent. I'd been living with constant knee pain and decreased mobility for several years, pain that was unabated even after surgery and follow-up care by another doctor.  Dr. Greenbaum evaluated my situation with great care and suggested three potential courses of action (unlike the other guy, who suggested only surgery). Dr. Greenbaum performed arthroscopic surgery that treated all the things that were wrong with my knee, not just the one problem treated by the other guy.  His write-up of the surgery was impressively thorough--the kind of report you'd read in a medical journal.  With subsequent physical therapy, my knee feels better than it has in years. I'd also give a shout-out to his office staff, all of whom are welcoming and efficient.I recommend Dr. Greenbaum most highly. More...

Dr Bradley Greenbaum has been my Orthopedist for about 15 years - he has seen me through broken bones, various injuries and he repaired my almost-detached rotator cuff. He is the kindest, most knowledgeable, professional and best doctor I know. He is honest about what I can or cannot do in my injured states and he fixes my broken parts. He did an awesome job on my rotator cuff and I'm back to swimming 3,000 yards a day with some butterfly in there! Everyone I know who had rotator cuff repair by someone else said they can't do this or that: I have no limitations. Dr Greenbaum is the best!! His office staff is great, too. I can't say enough about him and I hope he never retires, lol. More...

Dr. Greenbaum was professional, attentive and thorough during my recent appointment. He offered several options for the next steps in my care, as well as suggestions and modifications for my regular exercise and recovery regimen. The office staff was also welcoming, professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Greenbaum to anyone looking for an orthopedic surgeon. More...

My husbands job usually means injuries unfortunately but ever since we have found Dr. Greenbaum we feel at ease that he has the best care around. I have referred several friends to him as well and everyone has had great experiences as well. More...

GREAT DOCTOR!!! Honestly have never experienced such a personal and information filled visit at a doctors' office. Dr. Greenbaum gives you all the options at recovery and does not want to force surgery like other doctors might. All around I would highly recommend if you're in the OC area---I'm glad I went to him over other orthopaedics in the area. More...

My name is Fatemeh,I met Dr Bradley Greenbaum on 1-23-18 for my knee, he spend time to explain everything about my knee. My previous dr told me I need surgery I was so scared. But Dr Greenbaum said I don't need surgery, I have found my new orthopedist, he is one of the best doctors I have ever been to, I would highly recommend him to everyone, and staff are very friendly and nice. Thank you Dr Gree More...

I would highly recommend Dr. Greenbaum to my family and friends. I went to see him for a problem I was having with my knee.  I happily found him to be a man of great experience in orthopedics and he had the wisdom and intelligence that goes with it to make me totally confident in what he had to say.  He and his staff were friendly and very well organized. The office was nicely decorated, clean and spacious. I could tell that he truly cared about helping me and was able explained very clearly what my knee problem was and gave me many helpful suggestions on things that I could do to improve my situation. I also found him to be very honest and he did not try to sell me anything.  He addressed the problem after he reviewed all of the results of the thorough exam that was done.  I could not be happier with my experience in his office!

***THE BEST ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON****I highly recommend Dr. Greenbaum. Finally, an orthopedic surgeon that's not interested in always pushing for surgery. I've been having knee issues for years and finally found out that I don't have any cartilage left behind the left knee so I opted for Stem Cell. While chatting in the waiting area with his patients, they were telling me how they weren't able to walk without a cane or a walker prior to having stem cell. And now they walk without a cane and Walker so I decided to go for it. It's only my first month and it takes awhile for it to work so I am hoping to have excellent results from this. We've had some of my friends from my mountain biking Meetup that has gone to Dr. Greenbaum when they tore their rotator cuff or did something to their shoulder or knees that required surgery. Years later they've had no complications and full range of motion and have been very pleased as well. More...

I hurt my rotator cuff some time ago and did not realize it... finally went looking for recommendations, for a good Ortho. I found him on yelp, I got an appointment easily, he really knows his stuff and recommended a good place for physical therapy my insurance would pay for... so far I like that place too. Highly recommended More...

Woke up with excruciating pain on my right shoulder that I could not move my arm at all.  I went to Newport Orthopaedics had my X-ray & MRI taken.  They gave me steroids meds for 6 days for the inflammation & pain.  Prescribed 6 weeks of physical therapy.  Follow up to see doctor Gazzaniga 2 weeks later.  I was waiting 45 min out front and Dr. Gazzaniga only spent 5 min and said I don't need surgery & just do PT.  If I still have pain, then he would do cortesion shots.  No explanation of what I have & why.I wanted 2nd opinion so I made an appointment to see Dr. Greenbaum.  I waited only 5 min out front.  Dr. Greenbaum took the time to review and explained in detail of my symptoms based on the MRI & his testing of my arms movements.  He explained that I have calcific Tendonitis but my really issue is the bursitis is thinning due to my weak muscles.  Conclusion is no surgery needed but I need to strengthen my muscles so physical therapy is needed for 6 weeks and continue with my exercise.  The cortesone shot only helps my pain & inflammation but with weaken muscles, I will still get the pain.Dr. Greenbaum is caring & taking the time to explain in detail of my symptoms & why I have it & what I need to do to avoid the symptoms .  I highly recommend him.

Dr Bradley took his time to explain my injury and recovery timeframe. Also potential issues down the road as well. The staff was also friendly and quickly responded to my questions. Would recommend you visit him if you broke or fractured anything. More...

Absolutely loved him! He treated my frozen shoulder, from which I had been suffering for months. I could not take it any more, and he put me to sleep and adjusted it. Working through the PT and recovery was SO worth it. I really liked his office staff and his in-house physical therapist as well. All in all the best experience one could have. Highly recommend.

We first met Dr. Bradley Greenbaum when my Daughter needed Emergency Surgery on her elbow that broke during school recess and lodged a Bone chip in the Joint.  He did such an outstanding job for her that both my Wife and I have been going to him for our Knee and Shoulder Issues.  He takes the time to help you understand your options, and offers several alternatives to try to avoid Surgery.   He repaired a torn Meniscus 6 years ago in my right knee and now I have a different knee problem that we are trying to resolve with Physical Therapy and are making progress.  As a coincidence, I have had several friends also go to Dr. Greenbaum and all have come away with the same Positive Feedback. UPDATE TO POST on 10/10/18.   I am 5 weeks out after Dr. Greenbaum repaired the torn Meniscus in my left knee and my knee feels great.  Most people are surprised by the speed of my recovery so I am guessing Dr. Greenbaum did a great job.

First visit to Dr. GreenbaumHow refreshing it is to have a doctor/orthopedist spend time with explaining what your physical issue is.  My knee 'fixed' itself over the weekend and was not in that bad of shape when I saw him, but he still took the time to help me understand what happened and how to hopefully prevent. Staff very friendly as well.I have found my new orthopedist.  Thank you Dr. Greenbaum. More...

It's been about ten days since the arthroscopic operation on my knee. Healing quickly, great relief after a year of constant pain. Every aspect of the contact with the Doctor and his staff was outstanding. Sorry I didn't go there a year earlier. More...

Dr. Greenbaum is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. His bedside manner is amazing, he is always super honest with you and has a gentle touch. I was in there this week for a broken patella and I have been in before for other knee issues. Always super thorough and informative. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is ever in need of a great sports doctor. More...

I was happy I was referred to Dr. Greenbaum. I was seen quickly and Dr. Greenbaum was very helpful. I had been having some hamstring pain and I like to be active outdoors and doing group interval fitness classes, so I wanted to make sure I should keep exercising despite that lingering pain. He was friendly, asked me questions about the issue, showed me some stretching I could do to gain flexbility in related areas, etc. All in all, it was a quick but very informative appointment. I didn't have to take time off of exercise but I am taking my flexibility and stretching more seriously now. I would definitely recommend his practice. More...

I went to Dr Greenbaum at the suggestion of my chiropractor. I was treated so well by his staff I immediately felt comfortable. Instead of suggesting surgery right away on my knee he tried several other things. I really appreciated that. I am Now going to have surgery and am not the least bit apprehensive. I trust Dr Greenbaum. More...

I want to see Dr. Greenbaum for an onset of acute shoulder pain after looking at my MRA surgery was scheduled and after my 3 month check up my shoulder is completely healed. He worked within my time frame to schedule the surgery before year end. I liked the friendly office staff and never had a long wait like most specialists. I have recommended Dr. Greenbaum to my friends and would highly recommend him for any orthopedic care that anyone needs. More...

Our family has been going to Dr. Greenbaum for many years. We enjoy the atmosphere, friendly staff and most important, a great doctor you can talk to about your issue. Thank you very much for making this most recent challenge a positive one. More...

Dr. Greenbaum is an amazing surgeon with a wealth of knowledge and experience! He did both of my ACL knee repairs with tremendous success. I tore both of my ligaments within 2 years of each other and he repaired both of them with no problems. In fact, I feel much stronger than ever before. I play sand volleyball twice a week, play very competitive  tennis weekly and climbed Mt Whitney with 50 pounds on my shoulder with absolutely no pain in my knees. I highly recommend Dr. Greenbaum for your orthopedic needs and Mark Allen who successfully rehabilitated me over several month through physical therapy. More...

I have been having an issue with my wrist for about a month.  Finally decided to make an appointment with Dr. Greenbaum to get it checked.  When I arrived, I was greeted by the friendly front desk staff.  I was quickly taken to get X-rays by the nice X-ray technician and taken to a room to wait for Dr. Greenbaum.  It was a very short wait, which is always good!  Dr. Greenbaum quickly diagnosed my wrist situation as De Quervain's Tenosynovitis and discussed treatment.  Dr. Greenbaum was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. My family has used Dr. Greenbaum's services many times in the past for various sports related injuries as well and have always had a very good experience. More...

I saw Dr. Greenbaum for a second opinion for an injury of my right knee during the summer. And I'm so happy I did after reading his Yelp reviews.  I won't name any names but the first Ortho I saw is supposedly one of the best in Orange County from South County Orthopedics Specialists whom just delayed my care and was negligent.  I'm an Emergency Room nurse and I even knew I tore something in my knee when I was only told I had a patella dislocation and physical therapy would suffice after having a positive MRI.  Well Dr. Greenbaum didn't disappoint.  He was attentive and answered all my questions.  He was with me longer than 15 minutes for my first consult.  The first Ortho doctor maybe was in the room with me for less than 5 minutes and didn't even assess my knee.  Dr. Greenbaum considers your age and activity level for his recommendations.  He is straightforward and tells you like it is.  He won't waste your time.  You can tell he is passionate about his work.  He said he could give me my second best knee.  He knew I had either partial torn or completely torn my ACL on the first appointment, based on his physical assessment and listening to my signs and symptoms.  I had my ACL reconstruction on 9/7 and I am happy with the results.  His office staff is also attentive and very helpful. I'm grateful and blessed I found Dr. Greenbaum to help me with my knee.  I will be referring all my patients from Saddleback to him based on my experience.  He should be a recipient of the Best in OC award in Orange County.

My wife was suffering from knee pain. Based on yelp reviews, I called to book an appointment with Dr Greenbaum. The front office person was really friendly and pleasant to speak with.Our appointment went really smooth. The doc explained the cause of the pain. He said that the most lasting change would come if my wife started exercising regularly. He recommended the forms of exercising to favor and forms to avoid.He said injections etc were an option but best is to just start taking care of the body more. I loved the fact that he didn't push any meds or invasive treatments etc. He educated us and encouraged us to take more responsibility of our health. Though I hope we don't need to go back, but if there were ever a need, Dr Greenbaum would be my first choice. More...

Greenbaum did a total ACL reconstruction on me and I am pleased with the results!  He is a very honest and straight forward doctor and I have recommended him to a few friends. The office staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.  the whole experience is positive and the physical therapy was very helpful as well.  You get quality one on one time that allows you to individually progress.

Although I have never personally been here, their customer service over the phone deserves this review. I called in and explained my situation to the lady who picked up the phone. She listened patiently, was extremely kind, and even directed me to a foot and ankle specialist to find a solution for my problem instead. Judging by the phone call, this doctors office is professional and knows what they're talking about. More...

Dr Greenbaum did arthroscopic knee surgery to repair my ACL and Meniscus. He explained the surgery and what to expect in detail. My results have been unbelievable!  I have very little pain and the healing has gone better then I could have expected. Having my other knee done a few years ago by a different surgeon, I am more then satisfied with my results! I highly recommend Dr. Greenbaum and his staff. More...

I went to Dr. Greenbaum for a second opinion on my knee issues.  The first orthopedic told me I needed arthroscopic surgeries on BOTH knees.  What I really like about Dr. Greenbaum is that he didn't recommend this surgery right now and suggested other less invasive treatments first!  I just finished my 3rd ortho-visc injection and hoping that helps for now.  I always have lots of questions and Dr. Greenbaum patiently answers all of them.  It is a small office unlike the previous one I went to.  I much prefer a small office with just one doctor. . . more personal and they know you by name!  Also, the office staff is great!  Now I'm off to play tennis!!!

Dr. Greenbaum performed my ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. I was referred by a friend who had the same surgery a few years prior. The doctor really took a lot of time explaining my options and what to expect. I really appreciated his small office and wonderful staff. The procedure went very well and I'm now 8 months post op. I have already referred 3 people from my office. More...

Dr. Greenbaum has done two arthroscopic surgeries on my knees to repair torn menisci. Both surgeries held up well for numerous years. Now that I have developed arthritis, I am receiving ortho-visc injections to assist the thinning cartilage. What I like about Dr. Greenbaum is he is knowledgeable and up to date on the newest and least invasive procedures to help his patients. I also like that Dr. Greenbaum takes the time to answer my questions and that he does even minor procedures like my injections himself. You will not find a better qualified, more skilled and caring orthopedic doctor than Dr. Greenbaum. His office locale is shared with an equally excellent physical therapist, Mark Allen. Together, they make a winning team! More...

My husband has end stage arthritis in his knee and is in terrible pain. Even though Dr. Greenbaum as a surgeon had to tell us that my husband is not a candidate for knee surgery hespent a great deal of time with us with detailed information in such a kind way that I would highly recommend this caring doctor that is forthright and knowledgeable. I can't imagine any other surgeon that once they know they cannot operate on a patient being so generous with their knowledge. I have wanted to "YELP" many times mostly to vent but Dr. Greenbaum was so outstanding that this is my first time ever to take the time to Yelp! More...

Dr. Greenbaum is the best arthroscopic surgeon in Orange County. He is super friendly,  highly skilled, very knowledgeable, and compassionate. Knee, hip, or shoulder pain are his specialties. There is also an awesome physical therapist right on site. Mark Allen. The close relationship adds an extra layer to increase chance of success and recovery. More...

Personable, professional, courteous and knowledgeable.  I came in as a first time patient (with cranky toddler in tow) to get some knee pain looked at.  Dr. Greenbaum took great care to not only diagnose and then dump knowledge my way, but to make sure that I understood what was being explained and he even demonstrated several exercises to help my body as a whole. He did all this with a smile on his face while my child was crying loudly.  Nothing but great things to say about Dr. Greenbaum and staff.  I highly recommend them! More...

Dr. Greenbaum is the third doctor I have been too.  The first one didn't do a great arthroscopy and I ended up in the ER.  The second one  said I have Arthritis, "deal with it"...He is amazing and went through all my MRI's & after surgery photo's.  I was recommend by Christine in there office when I was trying to sell them a Medical Device.  I am so glad and I start treatment in a couple of weeks, can't wait!Thanks again Christine!!!Dianna Hund More...

Dr. Greenbaum did my total knee replacement almost 6 months.  His name kept popping up from my associates, so I decided to change from the ortho I'd been using over the last couple years.  Glad I did.  The surgery is a fairly brutal one but I was pretty mobile within a couple weeks and now I'm fully functional.  Barely a scar.  I used to need 3 or 4 days to recover from a round of golf and I played 3 times last week without any after effects at all.  The only thing I'd do differently is have the surgery at his in-patient surgical center instead of using Hoag.  Hoag tangled up some insurance paperwork and tried to over-charge me on the anesthesiologist bill.  Dr. Greenbaum got involved in the issue and fixed it with one phone call.   He even called me personally to explain it was done.  If you are looking for an ortho to fix your knee issues, call Bradley Greenbaum's office in Irvine.
