I would be glad to recommend Dr. Glowacki to anyone! He did a great job explaining my situation to me and I have a high level of trust in his decision making. His office @ the Iowa Clinic is always clean and comfortable and the staff, especially his nurse Jessica, is fantastic!

After severe pain(s) due to a 7 mm kidney stone, Dr. Glowacki was the doctor who brought me relief! Mr. Kidney Stone was very stubborn but Dr. Glowacki never gave up. Mr. Kidney Stone was defeated due to Dr. Glowacki's knowledge, skills, and patience. He is the BEST!
My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer 2 years ago. Friends of mine in the medical field recommended we get a second opinion from Dr Glowacki and I am beyond grateful that we did. Dr Glowacki removed my dads prostate nearly 2 years ago. My dad is still cancer free and has done extremely well since his operation. Dr Glowacki has been very kind and informative through this whole process. His talent and expertise very well may have saved my dads life.

I would 100% not recommend Dr. Glowacki. We took our 10 month old in as a referral because he has unascended testicles. Our son was squirmy, as 10 month old babies are, and he had NO patience. He couldn't get us out of the office fast enough. He gave us incorrect info based on our son's condition and surgery. We saw two other urologists after this who gave completely opposite information. Don't waste your time going to this joker.
