Our first visit. I observed someone with excellence in their field. Dr. Glisson was able to give us an understanding of the situation we face, as well as direction to possible solutions, or management. He was thorough, respectful, and I'm so glad we made the trip across the state to see him. It was worth it!

Dr. Glisson is amazing! I have honestly never had any medical professional as caring, personable, and knowledgeable. He completely put me at ease.

I absolutely adore him. I may be biased, as he is the first neurologist I ever saw. But he's a pure gem. He's compassionate. He doesn't rush you off– he takes his time during appointments. He's clear and precise with questions and answers. I've known him since I was 12. I am now 19. We have a fantastic relationship. If you're looking for a doctor with his specialities, he's perfect. Trust me. You'll never want another.... Mark that down. You'll NEVER want another.

I have been receiving care from Dr. Glisson since 2010. I have also recommended him to others as I Have the highest respect for him and his practice. He has a kind and compassionate demeanor. He knows how to talk to me on a level that I can understand and always checks to make sure I did. I trust him and will always follow any instructions from him. I would never consider seeing any other doctor.
