My experience with Dr. Gluck and his staff has been excellent. I've been a patient of Dr. Gluck for over 7 years. I am glad I let Dr. Gluck operate on my hand. Dr. Gluck is a very professional, knowledgeable and personable. He takes time explaining your condition and the follow up treatment. His staff is friendly and professional. I am glad I have Dr. Gluck as my hand surgeon. I wouldn't trade him for any other. Extremely satisfied. God bless you Dr. Robert Gluck.

I was extremely satisfied with the care my daughter received from Dr. Gluck. My husband is now seeing Dr. Gluck for a hand injury. I highly recommend him, and have referred friends to him as well.

Dr. Gluck treated me, successfully for Dupuytren contracture in my left hand. My hand is greatly improved allowing me to type this message which I was not able to do prior to treatment. I now have greatly improved dexterity in my left hand. I can now use it with ease and comfort. I recently went to a concert and realized that I can now clap my hands again which I could not do for over two years. Dr. Gluck is an excellent skilled hand surgeon with many years of experience. I am very grateful.

Dr. Gluck is an amazing , non alarmest professional. Unlike many doctors he will not run you through unwarranted tests riddled with worries if he can diagnose the problem immediately. He cares about his patients . I’m blessed to have found himto deal with my hand issues. Down to earth and the best in his specialty .

It was the worst dr experience. Dr is very un professional . Of course took the co payment before seeing me. He asked for previous records, but we were not asked to bring them at the time of scheduling. He wouldn’t even give his opinion at the time of appointment. He walked out of the office without saying goodbye and sent the receptionist to escort us out.

My physician recommended Dr. Gluck to me. He took the time to listen and explain my options. I decided to undergo treatment and am very happy with the professional level of care and results. I highly recommend Dr. Gluck to anyone with hand problems.

I have known Dr. Gluck for many years and as far as I am concerned, he is the most knowledgable orthopedic surgeon I have ever met. Not kidding. He explains everything, has never for me or anyone I have recommended missed anything or steered anyone wrong, and he is competent and honest. I wish all doctors were like him. Most importantly, in my experience, the outcome of his work (whether it involved surgery or not) has always been great.

I have been seeing the Dr. for the last 3 years. He is thorough, strict and honest with you. I have been assigned exercises for carpal tunnel, along with hot/cold treatments. He has never mentioned or pushed for surgery, which is probably unusual for a hand surgeon.

I've been a patient for a few years and Dr. Gluck was always a caring and a wonderful doctor. I've been to other doctor for my medical issues and I didn't receive the same quality care that I received from Dr. Gluck and because of him I'm doing so much better. He also has a wonderful staff and always helpful when I needed forms filled out. I would highly recommend him.

My experience with Dr Gluck and his staff was amazing from the minute I made the call. The professionalism and cheerful attitudes made me feel at ease with my choice. I was in a great deal of pain and swelling from my wrist fracture however just from doing a few exercises and elevation Dr Gluck had me do in the office reduced my pain in half. Thank you for helping ease my pain and mind.

I made an appointment with Dr. Gluck with the recommendation from another doctor. I saw the doctor for 6 minutes, he deals with my issue but too busy. Tells receptionist to give me number of someone else and collect my co-payment. If you decided not to assist me with my issue, and pond me off to another doctor, don’t rob me too. Be careful. I thought he was a good doctor based on the recommendations posted, but that was not my experience. 30 minutes in the waiting room, 6 minutes in the doctor’s

I spend over an hour in the waiting room with a newborn baby to see Dr. Gluck. I was told by Dr. Gluck that the procedure that I was there for with my son for would take no more than 20 minutes but that he wouldn't be able to do it that day. Our visit with Dr. Gluck lasted 5 min. I was told that someone will contact me to schedule an appt. I called numerous times and left VMs. It's been 2 months already. I got an invoice for a 5 min. visit but no call back. Very unprofessional!

This is the most poorly managed medical office I have ever been to. The front office/ receptionist staff are rude, disorganized and not able to perform the tasks of their job. While I was in the office waiting, another patient said the exact same thing. I told this to the doctor and he told me that I "should take back my statement" about his staff. The woman handling his patients told me she was by herself that day but there is a limit as to how poor the quality of work can be. No excuses.

I had an appointment with dr. Gluck at 12:30. I arrived on time, filed out the necessary paper work and sat down to wait. After waiting an hour I went to the desk and asked wht the delay was. I was told they do not have 12:30 appointments. I thought that was odd since I was given papers to fill out and was called the previous Friday(the appointment was on Monday) to confirm my 12:30 appointment. I left.

Dr. Gluck is my favorite doctor. I was in a terrible car accident and almost lost my pinky finger. With his knowledge and being so caring he was able to repair my nerve damage and get my finger safe. He did everything he could to help me and without him I would be without a finger right now. After 2 surgeries and many visits, my finger is almost back to normal. His passion for this is unbelievable and I will forever be thankful that I found him to be my doctor.
