Dr. David’s Bio

Along with his wife, Dr. David Greenberg founded the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance in November 2003. They had received Temple Shalom’s Humanitarian Award for their outstanding volunteerism and decided to start the GCLT to pay it forward.

David has been a cardiologist since 1976. He trained at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC and served at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. After initially being a solo practitioner, he founded Pikes Peak Cardiology with 14 cardiologists. He served as the head of cardiology at Memorial Hospital for 18 years and was instrumental in starting open-heart surgery and the catherization laboratory and the Chest Pain Center there. Presently, he is the only cardiologist at Kaiser Permanente in Colorado Springs.

He has been active with the American Heart Association for 41 years. He received the Outstanding Service Award from the American Heart Association in 1989. David served on the American Heart Association Advisory Board in 1991 and has been a board member for the past three years. Additionally, he has been a Memorial Hospital Foundation board member for 14 years. In 2006, he was voted the Physician of the Month at Memorial Hospital.

Their efforts in founding the GCLT have made a difference in the community. The Greenberg Center has been presented with the Dove of Peace Award from The Center for Christian-Jewish Dialogue and in 2010 The Raising the Bar award from the Colorado Springs Diversity and Inclusion Forum.
