Great Dr. - explained everything about what he would do during my procedure, and made me feel comfortable. Office staff could be a little more compassionate & patient.

We have been very impressed by the professionalism shown by Dr. Glombicki. Is evident that he took time to review several labs tests i brought and to inquire about the condition/history. He also took the time to explain how the liver works and the possible explanations (hypotheses) for the observed symptoms. The followed with a discussion of the prescribed tests. When the results were ready he took time again to review those that were out of range or border line.

I never even got to see him. The Southwest Freeway location office was trashy, TV blaring, pieces of paper in different languages taped up, no one greeted me, Dr. had not even arrived and I would have a 1-2 hour wait?!?

I have mixed opinions about Dr Glombicki. While he might be very good at diagnosis and even his staff is very good and helpful, the MOST ANNOYING thing is the wait time. Better come with a bucket of popcorn and a couple of movies on your laptop if you are waiting for his appointment. Extremely unprofessional I would say, since I have had to wait 2 hours or more for each and everyone of his appointment. He is just NEVER on time. My endoscopy also had a wait time of 3 plus hours!!

Up until this point in my life (42) I have had literally zero health issues. So when I was told my liver enzymes were very high, I immediately assumed the worse. I researched doctors and found the BEST that Houston has to offer. He has an amazing bedside manner and makes absolutely sure that you completely understand what is wrong and how he will treat it. Down to earth and kind and simply an amazing doctor. I am so blessed to have found him. Simply the best in the Biz here in Houston.

He is extremely rare in being so kind, compassionate, dedicated to the patient,and well educated! Go now if you have any HCV concerns. He knows what he is talking about and saved my life while friends stopped dead and had transplants all around me.

Amazing Doctor. Worth the wait since he gives the time each patient needs. He is always there when you have an emergency. Quick to schedule necessary procedures. Really cares about his patients. Only doctor I could find when I was pregnant with GI (gall bladder, liver, and pancreas) issues to not be scared to care for my needs. I have been with him ever since. Now my family and friends see him.
