He completed fellowship training in Pulmonary Medicine at New York University/Bellevue Hospital Center. He went on to become a New York Lung Association Research Fellow and attending physician at the Bellevue Hospital Chest Service. Shortly thereafter, he was recruited back to North Shore University Hospital as a faculty member in Pulmonary Medicine.
Dr. Greenberg has dedicated his academic and clinical research career to the understanding and treatment of disorders affecting sleep. He is the medical director of the Northwell Sleep Disorders Center, which is one of the largest sleep medicine diagnostic and treatment facilities in the region. As Program Director for the Hofstra Northwell Sleep Medicine Fellowship, one of the few ACGME accredited graduate medical education training programs in sleep medicine, Dr. Greenberg plays an important role in educating the next generation of pulmonary and sleep medicine physicians. He is also instrumental in educating the professional medical community and is frequently invited to lecture on sleep medicine.
Dr. Greenberg has helped to advance the fields of pulmonary and sleep medicine as an investigator in multiple research trials that have made contributions to our understanding of the pathophysiology and cardiovascular consequences of sleep disordered breathing. In addition, Dr. Greenberg was a co-investigator in a major international clinical trial that established the efficacy of continuous positive airway pressure therapy as an important treatment for patients with milder forms of obstructive sleep apnea. His work has also contributed to the development of new therapies for insomnia.
