My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

A family physician’s knowledge, experience, insight and technical ability all come together when evaluating and treating patients. My goal is to help all of my patients achieve their optimal health through wellness and prevention. I believe the key is forming personalized partnerships by sincerely caring, listening, educating and advocating for my patients. My family medicine practice allows me to share my passion for prevention, men’s and women’s health issues, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, thyroid disease and gastrointestinal health. 

I am currently the only primary care physician in the Golden Isles community area of Georgia offering this type of personalized healthcare. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. My office is nestled near the Georgia coast on the mainland city of Brunswick, situated midway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida. My practice also serves the areas of Jekyll Island, Saint Simons Island, Sea Island and Little Saint Simons Island. 

I am an attending physician at Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Greene

from Mary in GA March 27, 2020 for James W. Greene, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Greene has been readily available when I have needed his help. Anytime I have called with a desire to see him that was not previously scheduled, I have always been able to go to the office that day or the next. Very unusual for most physicians. I was also recently surprised when he called me to check on my status during this Corona virus sequester. His phone call made me feel as if… See more

from Donna in GA March 12, 2020 for James W. Greene, MD, FAAFP

I started going back to Dr. Greene (he was my primary physician years earlier) after my husband passed away as I wanted a higher level of care while I was going through this difficult time. As it turns out, I have several health issues I needed to deal with and Dr. Greene always has a kind, compassionate and listening ear for me when I need him. I recommend him to anyone who wants a doctor… See more

from Ralph in GA February 29, 2020 for James W. Greene, MD, FAAFP

As a 90+ year old patient, my verbal skills are not what they used to be. Dr. Greene patiently listens and takes adequate time to
understand me and care for my needs. I, my daughter, and son in law are all members and have a high regard for this kind and
very professional Doctor. His office staff is exceptional and goes the extra mile on our behalf.

Dr Greene and I have collaborated on my “Wellness” for five years and my friends and spouse all see me getting younger and healthier as I crossed the 70 year old threshold. Life is great thanks to his concern for thoroughness and prevention of negative health factors. Let’s keep it going,

from Dr Anne in GA March 26, 2018 for James W. Greene, MD, FAAFP

Upon moving back to GA, I researched and then joined the MDVIP Program with Dr Greene as my primary physician. He has consistently focused and responded to my health needs as well as my husbands health needs with empathy and in a timely manner. His referrals, when needed, have provided very good outcomes for our various special needs.. As a PhD, RN, I have freely referred him to several… See more

from justine in GA March 17, 2018 for James W. Greene, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Greene is a very caring doctor who treats each patient as an individual and with respect. He let's his patients share in health care decisions and offers options for health care and medicines. I also like that he wears bow ties!

from Andrea Jean in GA March 6, 2018 for James W. Greene, MD, FAAFP

You are the Oscar Winner of all doctors!! Without your caring and concern , my life would be quite different right now. I will be forever thankful to you and your staff. Your kind and caring nature have really helped us to get back to a normal life . You were very persistent and stuck with us on getting help that was needed. I am always shouting your praises to friends . Honestly, you… See more

His interaction with patients is comforting and encouraging and he takes the time to explain the patient's medical problem and he outlines clearly the goals of treatment. I believe that he exemplifies the very highest… See more
