Southampton Plastic Surgeon Donating November Proceeds to Sandy Victims

Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., a plastic surgeon for New York City and Long Island with an office in Southampton, has decided in the wake of Superstorm Sandy that a portion of the proceeds from every procedure booked in November will be donated to the American Red Cross' Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, his office announced.

While his offices weathered the storm OK, Dr. Greenberg said his staff was not as lucky. “We had two employees who lost everything: their homes, cars, belongings, etc. We want to help them, and others like them in our community. These are our neighbors, our patients who we love and serve every single day. We look forward to engaging in the community and helping to rebuild.”

Dr. Greenberg is the author of "A little Nip, A little Tuck" and the host of weekly talk radio shows on KJOY 98.3FM and Party 105.3FM.
