Sally Greenwald was excellent!! Highly recommend.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Greenwald meets and exceeds all expectations of a physician. I am very lucky to have her and hope she will always be here to help me.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Greenwald is the best doctor I've had in my entire life. She makes me feel empowered and informed about my gynecological health. She always takes the time to listen to my concerns and questions and never seems rushed. Appointments with her feel like visiting with a friend and I can honestly say that i look forward to them.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Sally Greenwald is amazing. She pays attention and knows me pretty well now and tries to remember as many details as she can about how I prefer my care to be done. In particular, she remembers my labor/birth plan from previous pregnancy. She preemptively told me that if I went into labor before 34 weeks I needed to go to the hospital right away to get things done to help the baby. If after 34 weeks, she said I could labor within reason at home as long as I felt I could before going in. I like that she mentioned that right away, as she knows I'm already thinking ahead to these next steps.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

my visit was scheduled for 40 minutes, and i felt a bit rushed through. The doctor was maybe under time pressure, because my appointment started 25 minutes late in the first place. I hope at my net visit she will have a bit more time.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Dr. Greenwald is an amazingly patient, kind, compassionate physician. She always takes the time to address all of my concerns, and is incredibly warm. I have complete confidence in her to take care of me during my pregnancy.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

i have never had a better experience with a gynecologist. she was clear win her explanation, gave me time to ask questions, and was very empathetic.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr Greenwald is the best. She is not only knowledgeable about the most up-to-date research, but also has a great sense of empathy and human sense of connection. She understands where patients are coming from and tries to adjust her skills and knowledge to their expectations. She is like an angel that will help women through their journey.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Sally Greenwald was amazing! She connected with me the minute she walked in the door. She knew all about me (as I had seen another Gynecologist previously) and she asked about each family member and got to know me in details. I felt like she was a friend from the past and we were catching up! She will keep me at Menlo Medical Clinic!

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Greenwald always takes the very best care of me, and attends to all of my concerns with kindness, compassion, and empathy.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

words can't describe how amazing Dr Greenwald is. Not only is she phenomenally competent and an excellent doctor, but the level of compassion and care she demonstrates go far beyond that of any doctor I have ever seen in my entire life. I am eternally grateful and blessed to have found such an amazing physician. On a scale of 1-5 she should get a 10! Thank you Dr Greenwald for being the amazing human being that you are!!

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Exceptional care from Dr. Greenwald and her nurse.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Greenwald is the best OB-GYN! I am so grateful to have her as my doctor

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

I appreciate that Dr Greenwald does through prep before each visit and reads up on my file. however there are now two instances where I had to provide information which changed the doctor's recommended approach. most recently, her system apparently had the wrong information about when my IUD was placed, and so she thought it was only 4.5 years old, when it is actually 5.5 years old and did need to be replaced. additionally, she had counseled me that I likely didn't need genetic testing because on my family history of breast cancer, but offered I meet with Stanford Genetics to learn more. I was surprised to learn that, regardless of the outcome of my BRAC test, it is recommended that I do additional screening because of my family history alone. in situations like mine, I would suggest that Dr Greenwald either better understand the recommended protocol or proactively refer patients to genetics to have the family history conversation.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Greenwald was wonderful. She explained everything to is compassionately but straight to the point. I felt like I was in great hands.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Greenwald is one of the best doctors I have ever met. She took the necessary time with me to explain everything, answer all my questions, and talk about my future treatment in great detail. She makes me feel extremely valued and cared for, and I feel lucky to be her patient. I would (and do!) highly recommend her to any other patients looking for an OB/GYN.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Greenwald consistently shows concern for me and makes me feel very supported! I have already referred her to 5 individuals because I have loved my experience so much. I appreciate the way she communicates with me and my husband and goes above and beyond to make sure we understand what is going on.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Dr. Greenwald created the best physician experience I have ever had! She was able to answer medical questions that in an accessible way that I had never before heard from a provider. She seems an extremely smart, but also made me feel listened to and cared for. After my appointment, I called two friends to tell them how great my experience was and to recommend Dr. Greenwald! She will keep me coming back to Menlo Medical for as long as I'm in the Bay.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. greenwald was on time, asked all the right questions was open to my suggestions and had a plan of action with a few choices. As former faculty oncologist at Duke who saw Duke physicians for my care for 18 years what I'm struck by is how happy all the attending and staff look at Stanford and that comes out in the care they provide to us patients.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Greenwald was great. She was very thorough in addressing my concerns and symptoms and made me feel at ease.

I really appreciated her attentiveness.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Greenwald was fantastic. I really appreciated the effort she took to explain things to me in detail about my situation and my options. I could sense she really cares about her patients and provides great care. It made up for the horrendous experience I had getting into the clinic.

I absolutely love Dr. Grace - she's thorough, patient, compassionate, and always spends as much time with me as I need! My one small piece of feedback would be that Dr. Grace sometimes talks so fast, it's hard to get in all her great advice! otherwise she's the best.
