Dr. Gluckman recently performed a complex surgery on me to remove what turned out to be a cancerous cyst. Due to the size and location of the cyst, it was necessary to remove the entire kidney to assure that all malignant tissue was removed. I feel fortunate to have been under the care of a surgeon as skilled as Dr. Gluckman. I highly recommend him and the entire staff at Northwest Suburban Urologists.
Dr. Gluckman cured a urological problem I have experienced on and off the last 30 years. He provided several alternative approaches and clearly explained the benefits and risk associated with each approach. I am happy to report that the alternative he suggested worked.

Excellent urologist! I had a very complicated problem and he did surgery on me to correct my problem. He spends time with you to explain things and is easy to talk to. I have seen other urologists in the past and he is very skilled and one of the best.

Recently saw Dr. Gordon Gluckman and after his diagnosis, had surgery at Lutheran General Hospital. He is a very caring and skilled urologist and wonderful to work with. We would highly recommend him for your urology medical issues. He is easy to talk to and fully explains everything to you. He treats you like family which is appreciated.

Dr Gluckman is awesome. I went to him based on other reviews for a 2nd opinion. He became my first choice for doing the surgery. He talked to me and explained everything so that I understood all options. I never felt I was being rushed or ignored by Dr Gluckman. He took his time with me. I had a lot of confidence in him. He took care of me when I needed it most. Thank you Dr Gluckman. Plus the staff that I he has are some wonderful people.

Dr. Gluckman is a doctor you can trust to give you educated and experienced answers to all concerns. There is no grass growing under this guy's feet. He is type A, all the way. I am convinced that his skill in the OR is what has made my recovery faster and a whole lot less painful. I had put off surgery for four years, and recently consulted another practice. Without hesitation, I revisited Dr. G, and he remembered me.....A pro's, pro all the way. I would call him a good friend.
