Dr G prescribed my 6 year old daughter a brace after she was diagnosed with scoliosis. He ordered an MRI which revealed some neurological issues that may cause the scoliosis. We never received follow up from Dr G, never an orthopedic perspective on this turn of events and he had his Assistant call us twice to speak to us instead of himself. We switched ortho MDs.

Our experience with Dr. Glotzbecker was phenomenal. Great personality, down-to-earth, practical. Heard our concerns and answered all our questions but didn’t sugarcoat the advice. Explained his recommendations so we understood the various approaches and why the one he was suggesting for our child offered the best chance of achieving the goal. Also didn’t talk down to her, but involved her in the conversation and the action plan on every visit.

The doctor was dismissive and honestly a bit rude. When I told him that I was reluctant to accept his diagnosis, he said, "well, call it what you want, but all you have is rib pain. Just use heat and ibuprofen." I left the appointment feeling defeated and frustrated.
