Dr. Gleckel is a true gem. My family and I have been going to Dr. Gleckel for our heart and as our primary care physician for approximately 30 years. He is brilliant, compassionate and knows when he has to give me a stern talking to if I am not following his instructions. If I have a problem and need to get in to see him ASAP, he makes it happen. Another big plus is that he has a great staff who exhibit the same qualities that he has, a rarity in comparison to other doctor's offices.

Generally, I do not write reviews but today’s an exception. Louis Gleckel, Chief of Cardiology at ProHEALTH Care and his team deserve a shout out. Lou exemplifies what the medical profession was meant to be. Lou is a standout. A true professional and gentleman. Highly competent. Caring. Proficient. His mission in life is to keep his patients alive and well. When he's ministering, you have his undivided attention. You are not a number; you are a person and he’s there for you 110%. Beyond his impeccable medical credentials, he is a leader. He has assembled a staff of professionals in their own right. Pam, his right arm, is beyond parallel. Competent, knowledgeable, disarmingly efficient, and instantly sets patients at ease with her soft, kind and caring manner reducing your stress level and blood pressure at the same time. Praise also goes to Sophia, an assistant, who is as pleasant as can be, good at her job and conveys comfort at every turn. ProHEALTH Care, ranking high on every list,

I have been a patient of Dr. Gleckel for over 30 years. He's the best! And he has an outstanding staff, from the front reception area to the exam room nurses. Pam has been super all these years, as has been Nyra and Sophia. Don't know them all by name. But he knows how to pick his staff. Genuinely friendly and helpful.

My favorite cardiologist! Professional, efficient and attentive. I’ve been Dr. Gleckel’s patient for 15+ years and he always provides the most thorough care and follow up referrals when needed. He makes the best use of examinations by clearly explaining every detail of procedures as well as listening to a litany of complaints about aches and pains! Always above and beyond pleasant! In addition, his support staff ( especially Nurse Pam) is the most knowledgeable and compassionate group ever assembled in a medical office. Going to the doctor’s never felt so good!

Especially during this pandemic, you couldn't find a more caring medical professional as Dr. Gleckel. It is no surprise that he has the best staff I have ever encountered. These are difficult times and the staff is as helpful as ever. From Naira at the front desk, and the nurses Tenille, and Pam you cannot get a better staff.

Dr Gleckel and is staff are amazing. I recently needed to work out some insurance issues for my father, not only was Dr Gleckels staff, specifically Althea, Naira & Pam, helpful, they were a step ahead of me the whole time. Dr Gleckels staff is an asset to his office and I’m sure frees up time for him to focus on his practice

I've been under Dr. Gleckel's care for some 30 years, while maintaining good health as a younger man but also managing a mitral valve repair later in life. Lou Gleckel is a highly competent and experienced physician, but beyond that I have always appreciated his genuine concern for my well-being. I cannot overstate the confidence and comfort I enjoy knowing Dr. Gleckel is my personal physician. Each and every cisit has been a pleasure. My overall experience with services offered in Dr. Gleckel's Prohealthcare office has also been very positive and, in particular, the kindness and efficiency of the front desk staff is greatly appreciated.

About 7 years ago, I moved from a Nurse Practitioner to Dr. Gleckel and have never been in better health because of Dr. Gleckel's skilled care and keenness as a diagnostician. While Dr. Gleckel is a phenomenal cardio-medico doctor, what adds to my visits to his office is not only his own warm and graciousness, but that of his kind, courteous, professional, and ever attentive colleagues Pam, Christina, Sophia, and Sangita. I have never felt more confident in my healthcare because these individuals' concern and personal care and respect.
