This content was provided by Dr. Glaser "Dr. Glaser is a dual board-certified pain management physician who specializes in treating disorders of the spine that cause pain. Such conditions include, but are not limited to herniated discs, sciatica, failed back surgery, back pain, neck pain, radiculopathy, facet arthritis/arthropathy, and RSD/CRPS. Each patient is comprehensively evaluated and treated with custom care plans for their unique situation.

Patient Comments (17)

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!!!

We don't know who you are. The review does not describe a real patient experience. An anonymous review is cowardly. How easy it is to smear a business or professional online. Wish you would reach out to us offline to discuss your concerns so they could be addressed if you are a real patient. It is our strongest desire to treat patients with the utmost respect and dignity. It is not our goal to upset patients. We take patient satisfaction seriously.
