      One of the best doctors I have ever seen! You will not leave his office and not fully understand your prognosis and care plan. He said, “If my patients don’t understand then I’m not doing my job as their physician,” and he lives by that. Grateful I found him and after seeing other doctors he identified and corrected my shoulder problem and got me on the road to recovery. Awesome Christian doctor who believes in the power of prayer! Just about at the end of my injury/healing journey (finally) and I recommend him to anyone. Also have a co-worker who feels the same as me. Worth the hour drive for both of us! Be blessed Dr. Glenn!

      My mother is 87 and broke her arm recently. I am 58 and have a shoulder that has developed more pain over the last decade. His thoughtful guidance and skills have done wonders for both of us. I would recommend Dr. GLENN and TOA to anyone.

      After seeing multiple drs without a diagnosis and continued pain, I was referred to Dr. Glenn. Upon examination and a few different evaluations of shoulder/arm movements, he was able to diagnose me, in which he was up front and said that MRI’s would not be able to show. I was relieved that someone listened to me and found my problem. I am scheduled for surgery Dec 17. With the pain I’ve been experiencing and the quality of life I have had over the last 5 months, Dec 17th can’t get here fast enough.

      Dr. Glenn was exceptional. After, thorough analysis of shoulder movement and MRI, he gave me a clear explanation of my shoulder issue. He helped me decide on a cortizone and did not force it on me. The receptionist and his nurse were all very helpful.

      Dr. Glenn’s ability to explain what is wrong with your shoulder is phenomenal. He should teach new physicians, only part time because I’m selfish, how to speak to patients. He offers alternatives. He also has a sense of humor.

      Dr. Glenn is as amazing of a person as he is as a very skilled physician & orthopedic surgeon. I have been a physician & surgeon for over 35 years. Trained & practice in several fine institutions coast to coast. Was professor of clinical medicine in A medical school. Practice for more than 25 yrs. Let me assure you that he really is a very fine person, great bedside manner and his surgical work that he did on my shoulder was excellent. My rotator cuff & other parts of my shoulder are functioning properly and well. Another testament to this doctor is that staff from all over the clinic & hospital, including billing, all gave him the same very great review. You are truly in great hands with him.

      Dr. Glenn has given me my livelihood back and has allowed me to continue on with my life in a normal, active & pain-free manner. I've had both shoulders replaced by Dr. Glenn (5 years apart). He's the friendliest, most humble and most patient orthopaedic surgeon I've encountered. His expertise in shoulder care and reconstruction is world class. His calm, informative and reassuring bedside manner takes the anxiety out of this type of procedure. I'm truly fortunate to have found him when I needed surgical intervention. I've referred several people to him and all have been equally pleased with Dr. Glenn. You will not find a better doctor for any type of shoulder issue.
