5 years ago, I was about to be prescribed biologic meds by my rheumatologist as my chronic pain comes from R.A. Seeing DrGlaser was my only hope & thank God he had other options that no other doctor had suggested. Through minimally invasive procedures and pain medication therapy, I have a quality of life that I wouldn't even dream of had it not been for Dr. Glaser & staff! If you have no comprehension of the fact that Dr. Glaser, because of patients who need pain management and a lack of doctor's who practice in this field, you might have been one of the people who left a neg review. But Dr. Glaser has opened offices in the poorest communities to the more affluent bc he cares! I don't know how he does it but the man truly has a compassion to him that is apparent if you understand just how far he travels to serve all of us who suffer from chronic pain! Also, there are strict guidelines a pain doctor must follow, and he follows these guidelines to a Tee! I Highly Recommend Him!

I have been seeing Dr Glaser for about 16 years, even after moving I have continued to see him because there is nobody better.!! His expertise and quality of care enabled me to work effectively and at a high level until I was able to officially retire from the post office .

I am sad and sorry to read some of these negative reviews! Dr. Glaser has actually been a Godsend for me! He has given me injections into my back now on three separate occasions. It was under anesthesia in a pristine and sterile setting. I am grateful to Dr. Glaser as he has helped me with pain that was crippling my life! The spasms I was experiencing in my right side of my back are gone! The stenosis pain also is something I almost never feel. When standing for long periods of time, I have an issue. But I am experiencing nothing like I once did! My quality of life has been restored! I am sorry anyone of you who are saying negative things about Dr. Glaser, have not had the amazing outcome that I have! He honestly is a precious gem and I have only positive words to say! I would not think twice about asking him for help if I felt I needed it in the future!

I been a patient of Dr. Glaser for about 7 years now because of a tethered spinal cord! To judge this man as someone who only cares about money and writing scripts is wrong for two reasons! One being he is always recommending other pain relief options for people with severe nerve damage like myself! And two when I came to Dr Glaser he was able to adjust my meds where I took less meds and still kept the same quality of life I had before! I have very painful nerve damage in my tail bone that burns constantly and runs down the back of both my legs and without Dr glaser and Maria I would not be able to function or walk or set or sleep!! and I can't even imagine that nightmare happening! So of course I would recommend him to anyone who feels like they are trapped in there own body and who is suffering debilitating pain. They are very kind and compassionate and understand what your going thru much better then yourself most times! But you must watch out for the billing department because that

I would not reccomend this doctor. I recently had 2 imjections in my lumbar L1-5. 6 hours after the procedure I was in agony. It felt like my head and back were going to explode. I called his office twice and no one called back. It took 8 days for me to go back to work. I was 10 minutes late for my appointment because their was an accident on Rte 83. He refused to see me. What doctor do you know that would ever refuse to see a post-op patient???? A rather large ego.

SNEAKY PILL PUSHER DOCTORS... BEWARE! When I first started going to this clinic about 13 years ago I would have given them 5 stars. The doctors and staff were very nice. In the past few years or so this place has gone down hill tremendously. The staff is RUDE the doctors are ALWAYS late. They don't seem to care about the patient, they just want to give you pain killers or schedule procedures to make money off you and the insurance companies. I recently received a bill from a lab for a drug scr

Dr. Glaser is an excellent pain management specialist. He really listens to you and has really helped me with my degenerative disc disease. I had previously been seeing a very "unprofessional" pain doctor that almost killed me from a bowel blockage in 2015 because he was over prescribing opiods. A very dear friend of mine has been Dr. Glaser's patient for many years and recommended that I should try going to see Dr. Glaser. He had some very good suggestions. I would highly recommend him.

My husband was going to Dr. Glaser for several years. His staff and him were all about cutting down your medicine to the point you life in pain 24/7. They push for procedures that rarely do any bit of help but are highly costly. We would not recommend going to him we were stuck taking him since he was in our group insurance network. Stay away if you can appt. they are always 30-1 hour behind too.

I have been seeing Dr Glaser for 12 years since being injured in a car accident. He has become my constant , he listens and understands me. He's willing to help me with my CRPS with every tool he has. I would 110% recommend him to anyone suffering from chronic pain.

Dr. Glaser has been treating me for three years for severe back pain caused by herniated discs. My family doctor told me that my only option was surgery when she read my MRI scan. Luckily a cousin told me about Dr. Glaser and he immediately scheduled me for steroid pain injections that week. The pain relief was amazing. The shots keep me pain free for about a year. Dr Glaser is very professional and efficient. His office appointments are on time and you are in & out in less than an hour..

I was recommended a treatment plan based on my response to a questionnaire and not the results of my medical exams. The treatment did not alleviate the pain at all. My experience with the Dr was ok but the overall treatment was rushed. Now I have a medical bills and no relief.
