Patient Comments (2)
Tarrytown, NY |
Great doctor, very compassionate.
in Ridgefield, CT |
I have been Dr. Glassman's patient for 39 years. In fact I just saw him today. During the 39 years he saved my husband's vision (3 retinal detachments) by getting him the appropriate care immediately. Dr. Glassman wouldn't even let my husband stop for lunch. Dr. Glassman also saved my vision by getting me immediate treatment for a retinal tear. Finally, he saved my neighbor's vision when he was 5 years old and had an inflammation of the optic nerve which required immediate hospitalization.
