The epidural procedure went well, friendly personnel and efficient in every way. I would have liked to speak with Dr. Glaser after the procedure but I was told he went back into surgery. I wanted some confirmation from someone who was in the surgery operating room but I could not as no one was available.

My consult had more to do with managing pain after knee replacement surgery since I have fibromyalgia and my surgeon wanted me to consult with a pain management doctor prior to my surgery. Dr. Glaser took his time and explained the different options I have. I really felt that I had a doctor that listened and will be available to me should I need his expertise after my surgery.

De. Glaser is a kind, knowledgeable, and supportive doctor. He has been treating me for migraines and it has made a significant difference in my daily life. He does not dismiss the pain, the nausea, or sensitivity to light and sound. I can not be happier with his professionalism, care, and commitment. His staff is very friendly and helpful.

I wish I could talk with Encino from June 8th. He also scolded me while I was on the table to the point that I was in tears. This guy should not be a doctor!!! Its extremely clear that he cares more about his ego than anything else!!!

Dr Glaser prescribed two strong, expensive, highly addictive, brand-name medications at my first visit. I learned after that both drugs were contra-indicated given several items in my history. I followed up, and got no response. At the next appt he was curt and said he was the expert, and I shouldn't read patient inserts because "if you read the labels on Tylenol you wouldn't take that either." He said "I don't have time for this" as I cried while he scolded me on the exam table.
