Dr. Glines, and his entire staff, have bent over backwards to care for my husband. They have been kind and have rushed to get him treated. We are very happy and grateful.

Yes I was a patient of dr byrds, until he left. Then dr glines was suppose to be my dr, but I got his nurse pratishiner, then was pretty much accused of being a junkie because I had sudafed in my system, then got another drug test was ok but then they said they couldn't take me anymore because I didn't have hydrocodone in my system, and I did, it was all because I didn't want my nerves cauterized again, it didn't help for long, didn't want the other procedure because it wouldn't help with my situation. Shame on you for only thinking about money and not patients, glad I found out where dr. Byrd is at, he is the best and actually cares about his pa6

I’ve been seeing Dr Glines for several years. He is compassionate and knowledgeable. When I receive my steroid injections, I don’t need the sedation. He’s that good!

I have been dealing with chronic pain for years. It wasn't until I was in the emergency room at St Mark's that my attending Dr. asked me, when did you have back surgery? I have had lots of surgeries but none of them on my back. I was referred to Dr. Glines. In my opinion, Dr.'s who really know their stuff don't usually have a great bedside manner, they have more of the God complex but Dr. Glines was a refreshing change. He knows his stuff and you can tell that within the first few minutes of speaking with him. He is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, patient and really listens to his patients. I would recommend Dr. Glines to anyone suffering from similar conditions. Out of my many, many Dr.'s I have seen over the years, he is my favorite and I love his staff as well.

After 10 years of being a patient. I was informed buy new management, that I had a new doctor. Dr. Glines & PA Chuck Jarvis. In one appointment, they informed me that the treatment I have been receiving for the last 8 years, which was working very well, they didn't agree with they were changing it. I was informed that I was to go through extremely expensive spinal injections, which I had already tried multiple times, they were not a long-term solution. But in order to pay for that big new beautiful clinic, they told me if I wanted to continue being a patient at that clinic, that I would do the injections or I would have to find another doctor to treat me. I already knew exactly where I was going, because I was not going to allow them to charge my insurance for these expensive injections I was not going to pay out of pocket the kind of money they were trying to take for me. So they can fill their wallets full of cash. It's all about money not patient care. Don't be fooled.$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Brilliant! Dr. Glines knows his stuff. I've had pain in my back for two years, and after a lumbar injection yesterday, I can stand without pain. I highly recommend Dr. Glines for anyone dealing with pain in the lower back. He listens, and cares about his patients. He also has an excellent team working with him in the procedure room.

Dr Glines’ was professional and competent, I wish I could say this about his office staff. Had issues with his staff requesting the correct procedure; twice we had to resubmit the authorization because they selected the wrong code. Once they submitted the correct code found out the only submitted the code for one side, wouldn’t have been an issue if they tried to resolve the problem they created but didn’t care to help out or accept responsibility. Won’t go back, unfortunate.

Dr. Glines is a great doctor and so is his staff. I've had many appointments and several procedures with Dr. Glines and he is absolutely the best doctor I have seen for pain and procedures. He is caring and listens and has a great bed side manner as well as his staff. His staff members treated me like family. Angie, Jennifer, Bruce, Paula, Shelli, and Marilyn are all very caring and made sure I was comfortable and my needs were met. I would recommend Dr. Glines and his staff to anyone. Great!

Dr. Glines is very kind, knowledgeable and thourough. He spent more time with me than any doctor I've seen in a while. He helped find a good treatment plan that he clearly explained and I felt comfortable with and allowed me to ask questions and voice concerns. Each encounter with the doctor or any of his staff has been great. I appreciate his expertise and kind nature.

I would and already have recommended Dr. Glines to my friends in pain. My first visit for a test procedure recommended by Medicare was very difficult. I warned the staff that I would probably scream into the pillow when I got onto the bed. And I did. They were very kind and comforting and helped me as much as they could. The second test procedure went much better. No screaming into the pillow. Both test procedures were successful and Medicare approved the lumbar radiofrequency. Tls!

If you are not a quick easy fix he will stop seeing you & wont tell you why. I am fine if he would just tell me there is nothing more he feels he can do; but don't leave me hanging. By not informing me that he'd given up & having the nurses not even allow me to setup appointment to ask why he wont see me, was unprofessional. The form i signed when starting to see Glines states i wont go see another pain clinic. By him not telling me he is unofficially dropping me,really screwed me.
