Meet the Doctors
Charles C. Greene, MD, PhD | Jacksonville ENT Surgeon
Dr. Greene is a board certified Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgeon. He has benefited from world-class training and has a long track record of excellence and commitment to community service. Reared in the rough inner city area of Compton, California, Dr. Greene was able to overcome many early challenges in life to graduate from high school Magna Cum Laude. He went on to achieve his bachelor of science degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) where he was the recipient of numerous awards for academic work and community service. In addition, he was involved in student government and held positions in both local and national health care organizations. At UCI, Dr. Greene performed research in Behavioral Neural Pharmacology under the direction of Dr. James L. McGaugh who was the founding executive Vice Chancellor of the UCI, Chairman of the Center, and member of the National Academy of Sciences. In addition, he simultaneously performed research under the Direction of H.W. Moore, Chairman of the Department of Chemistry at UCI. With the support and direction of these great men, Dr. Greene developed an interest in becoming a physician scientist.
He matriculated into the University of Washington School of Medicine and was admitted into the very competitive Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), where he simultaneously worked on his MD and PhD degrees (In Physiology and Biophysics with an emphasis in Neurophysiology). Dr. Greene continued to excel at the University of Washington and received numerous academic and community service awards. One of the awards he is most proud of is the "Outstanding and Meritorious Service and Achievement in Academic Excellence."
Dr. Greene was the first graduate/professional student recipient of this award and there was an extensive write up in the Seattle Times Newspaper summarizing his accomplishments. At the University of Washington, Dr. Greene performed his dissertation under the Direction of Dr. Wayne E. Crill, Chairman of the Department of Physiology and Biophysics and one of the preeminent neuroscientists in the country. Dr. Greene's brain research examined the effects of activating a new class of brain receptors and was published in the Journal of Neurophysiology and in the European Journal of Pharmacology. Dr. Greene received world-class training at the University of Washington, which, according to U.S. News and World reports, is consistently ranked among the top Medical Schools in the United States and is currently ranked as the number one school in family medicine. After graduating from the University of Washington with both an MD and PhD, Dr. Greene received his residency training in General Surgery and in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Michigan. The Department of Otolaryngology at Michigan is known as one of the finest residency training programs in the world. In fact, the U.S. News and World Reports, for decades, has ranked the Michigan Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery as one of the top 5 residency programs in the United States. While at Michigan, Dr. Greene's research led to the discovery of a novel hearing loss gene (locus), DFNA-25, and that work is published in the 2001 edition of the American Journal of Human Genetics.
Dr. Greene's combination of scientific thinking, commitment to the community, and training under the guidance of world-renowned mentors has helped him develop into an outstanding clinician. Yet, if asked what he values most about patient care, he will tell you it is knowing that he did his very best to meet the emotional and physical needs of every person that comes under his medical care.
