Dr. Greenberg has more than four decades of experience in ophthalmology and has gained incredibly valuable experience along the way. According to Dr. Greenberg, the quality of a doctor-patient relationship is reliant on listening to the patient’s needs and desires. After forty years, Dr. Greenberg is still helping some of his first patients – a testament to his dedication to life-long care.
Dr. Stephen Greenberg is a Board Certified ophthalmologist with 40 years of experience in treating eye diseases and performing ocular surgery in Deer Park and Holbrook.
He is a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science and The City College of N.Y. where he received his Bachelor’s of Science degree. He then attended the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, followed by an internship at Montefiore Hospital.
He then served in the United States Public Health Service as a family practitioner caring for Native Americans in northeast Oklahoma, attaining the rank of Lieutenant Commander. It was this opportunity as a “GP” that gave the eye doctor a unique experience in treating “the whole person” He even delivered 200 babies.
Returning to New York he continued his training at the Albert Einstein/Montefiore Medical Center Ophthalmology Residency program and was selected as Chief Resident. He has been Board Certified since 1976 and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmolgy ( F.A.A.O.)

He was also a consultant at Central Islip and Pilgrim State Hospitals as well as the Suffolk Developmental Center. Through these associations he has a 35 year experience in evaluating and treating those who are developmentally challenged or are dealing with severe psychiatric disorders. He has performed successful eye surgery on almost 100 disabled patients.
“I have seen and worked with all the amazing technology that ophthalmology has undergone in the past 40 years. Procedures that I could have barely imagined at the beginning of my career are now the standard of care. When I started in practice, a cataract operation would require a 5 day hospitalization, a 3 month recovery and at best, poor quality of vision. Today most patients are back to normal activity with excellent vision in only several days.”
Dr. Greenberg is an active member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the New York State and Suffolk County Medical Societies as well as the L.I. and Suffolk County Ophthalmological Societies
He is a founder, very active member and past president of L.I. Helping Hands, a charitable organization that helps the disadvantaged living in our communities.
