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.

I just got 2 epidurals for my neck and I have to admit I was pretty nervous. But, results have been really good, my range of motion is much better. Dr. Glaser and his staff are very organized and nice.

I received an Epidural injection from Doctor Glaser 3 weeks ago. The procedure was painless and very effective. Today I feel 95% better. Prior to the Epidural treatment I had very severe pain in my lower back and the pain felt in my legs as well. I will have a consultation visit to Doctor Glaser's office this week and it will be decided if I need a second Epidural in the near future. In addition that Doctor Glaser is an experienced Medical Doctor, he is also a very friendly person.

The most important issue is Dr. Glaser's expertise. You'll see what a pro he is from the moment you enter his office. His staff are warm and engaging, and the office and outpatient procedures are so organized that you will know with great confidence that you are in the care of a great doctor, a great healer. Dr. Glaser is an outstanding doctor, and you will know almost immediately that he's also a genuine, decent, gracious, fine man. I'm highly satisfied and couldn't be more pleased.

Excellent and caring doctor, 100% committed to doing his best for patients. I'm very thankful to have found Dr. Glaser. His staff are excellent; caring, patient, and kind people. Surgery center is top notch, reasonably priced, and let you know costs up front. I have complete confidence in Dr. Glaser. He is a genuine person and clearly has a calling for this work. The online patient portal is super helpful. You can fill out forms, ask questions, and get all of your medical records online.

The staff in this office are extremely inept. I had gotten a new RX & had a question I left a message nobody called me back. You tell them what pharmacy to call your RX's to & they call it somewhere else. When you have a question they might or might not get back to you. I called & cancelled an appointment & they said they never received the message. I checked my phone & I did. they wanted to charge me a fee for not showing. When I told the Dr he blew me off.

Dr. Jeffrey Glaser is at the top of medical professionals I have been fortunate to experience for treatment. Very serious and to the point, but full of personality. He zero'd in on my pain management situation immediately and within 3 to 4 weeks I was on my way to a fantastic recovery. Always there to answer my questions and oversee my progress, Dr. Glaser was very strong in his guidance. I sincerely recommend him to anyone with pain, medication or therapy issues.

I never dreamed that I could feel this great after 2 years of increasing numbness, nerve pain, tightness and burning sensations. Prior to meeting Dr. Glaser, these physical symptoms impacted me daily and I was deeply concerned that the downward spiral would never end. I am delighted to say I rarely have to give a thought to my back and leg these days! Dr. Glaser is a dedicated professional with a supportive staff and a first class patient environment. I am thankful to be his patient and recommen
Dr. Glaser and his staff are first rate professionals. I've had chronic pain for over 15 years and have consulted with many medical professionals. In all these years, only Dr. Glaser was able to address my symptoms, and seek to relieve my pain in an effective way.

His physician assistant, Rachel is one of the very best in her field and brings even more added valu
