After seeing another doctor for a year with no results, Dr. Glowacki recognized my problem immediately and proceeded to fix it! I now have no problem with my hand and no visible scars! Dr. Glowacki and his staff proved to be excellent, knowledgeable and caring. I would recommend anyone who has any type of hand problem to see this wonderful doctor and staff!

My experience with Dr Glowacki was outstanding. He is very personable and has a great bedside manner. His professionalism is beyond repute and he is very good at explaining your problem and getting to the right solution. I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone with a hand issue. Also his staff is extremely competent and care about your health and comfort. Bravo to all of them.

I had neglected trigger finger. Dr. G gave me one cortisone shot and later did surgery. The surgery was very successful, his explanations are clear and he is very likable. His nurse practitioner also is very competent and likable.
Thank you for sharing your experience here. We wish you the very best for the future! Warm regards, Sarah

I have been a massage therapist for 15 years. In 2007 I had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands performed by Dr. Glowacki. Because of his excellent care, I have continued working in a field that is my passion. Thanks, Dr. Glowacki! I will continue to refer my clients/friends to you and your group!
Thank you for your kind words, wishing you the best!
