      Dr. Glagau was the 3rd doctor that I saw about my shoulder pain. He sent me for an MRI with contrast and immediately said I needed surgery to repair my rotator cuff. The surgery went smoothly and the care that the surgery center and Dr. G's staff gave me was great! I was especially impressed at the lack of visible scars. Overall, I'm very happy with my experience at OrthoTexas from the doctor, to the surgery center, and especially the rehabilitation people.

      Do not see Glogau unless you have no other choice--and you do. Not only did he misdiagnose my injury, and recommend the very thing that caused irreparable damage, he refused to order an MRI for me, even after I offered to pay for it myself. Three months later I went to a different doctor who immediately ordered an MRI after seeing my condition. But by then the damage was done. I had surgery but the best result I can hope for is a 50% return to normal. Glogau is rude and arrogant, which is okay if you are competent, but he is not. I believe the only reason he refused to get an MRI was because I requested it. Why not use the tools, such as an MRI, that are available to you? His arrogance came at a terrible cost to me--stay away from this guy!

      Dr. Glogau replaced my left hip in late February. I liked his direct approach to what was coming and what was expected. Since then he has been in contact with me. With his guidance and physical therapy my outcome has been very good. Would recommend him and is staff for surgery as well as BSW Hospital in Frisco.

      Was so pleased as how he explained why I was in so much pain and what could be done to relieve it on a Friday appointment. And to schedule a surgery for the following Monday was more than I expected. Wish I was nicer during the visit but with the pain - I was not my perfect self. The follow-up phone appointment was good and his recommendation I could take another RX at the same time was successful

      Dr. Alex Glogau treated me for a work-related injury. He and his staff have been diligent in securing the correct treatment for my shoulder injury. The necessary surgery was quite successful, yielding full flexibility with a minimum associated pain. The associated physical therapy group did an outstanding job of tailoring exercises to my particular strengths and weaknesses to yield steady progress. This has resulted in very good flexibility and nearing-full strength.

      Many of my family members and friends had been to Dr. Glogau for their orthopedic needs but this was my first time. I was very impressed with the Doctor (and his staff). My waiting time to see the doctor was always reasonable. I was impressed with his surgical skill; very little scarring and a very conservative approach to recovery/rehab. Takes the time to explain if you ask any questions.

      16 years ago my husband went to ER at Plano Medical Center due to a horrific car wreck. His foot was partially severed and the doctor on call that day was Dr Glogau who successfully reattached and saved his foot! Since then he has performed surgery on both of my husband’s shoulder and shoulder surgery on me. He is a brilliant, professional, yet compassionate surgeon! I would highly recommend him.
