I have been a patient of Dr. Gloor's for over 10 years. He has the best bedside manner of any physician I have ever seen. He takes his time with me, listens to my concerns, includes me in the decision making, is always knowledgeable about my questions. He explains what can affect me. He encouraged me to try intermittent fasting to not only lose weight, but get my blood levels in check....and it WORKED! Can't say enough about my respect for Dr. Gloor. Just hope he doesn't retire any time soon! Thanks, Dr. Gloor for being the best internist I could have hoped for!
