This surgeon and his wife find sick people in medical support groups and lure them in. He loves to slice and dice then leave you for dead and leave no record, or surgical reports. He did my brain surgery, and I had so many complications and couldn't get any help. He wouldn't respond neither would his office, when he finally did respond he had me meet him in the parking lot and did the procedure in my mini van, I was dying I didn't have much choice, this ended up causing more issues. We ended up traveling home and another surgeon had to step in and save my life. The damage was so severe and I will have complications for the rest of my life..

The consultation went great! I was feeling very confident and comfortable with this Dr. I thought we were on the same page. Until! The staff became unreachable, no return phone calls, not answering the phone at all! I had to physically track him down on more than one occasion and still waiting after 2 months to set a surgery date that was already planned! Unbelievable!! Putting your whole life on hold and enduring excruciating pain is not a good combo! He needs to get a WHOLE new staff! #PERIOD! Truly disappointed in the way this office (which you don't know where it is) is being handled!

No follow-up after the surgery. No call back to schedule a follow-up appointment. A lot of life threatening issues after the surgery with no concerns for our well-being. Being sent to the emergency room multiple times. Horrible experience would wish on my worst enemy!

In 2018, we met Dr. Glickman in an emergency. He was clear, concise and honest while trying to make sure we had the best type of care we needed. This man cares about his patients and is passionate about helping his patients AND family.

Dr Glickman has a fierce passion for his patients and his work in medicine. Recently, my spouse needed surgery under difficult circumstances, Dr. Glickman saw it through even outside of office hours. We are so glad he chose to make Las Vegas his home for he raises the level of overall care for the community and simply to our family.

This was a specialist appointment about a chronic condition I have. I thought Dr. Glickman was well informed about my ailment and was very courteous. He discussed several treatment options and he did not pressure me to immediately have surgery which is a refreshing change from previous neurosurgeon. I would recommend seeing him first, or at least to get a second opinion.

Dr Glickman is one of best Neurosurgeons in Nevada. He helped me return to my normal life which included dancing! The thing that inspires me about Dr. Glickman is that he is all about advanced technology. He is the only neurosurgeon qualified to use the Synaptive robotic arm in MountainView hospital and the state of Nevada. This means less down time and greater accuracy in surgery. Dr Glickman spent significant time with me answering my questions and concerns with patience and kindness. Excellent Dr.

He was a fill in doc, he performed a micro discectomy on me, assured me this was routine. He ended up making a puncture that resulted in a fluid leak that needed to be patched. I woke up in extreme pain, dr stated it was swelling causing the issue. I was unable to walk for 3 weeks with excruciating pain until the reg. doc returned. He ended up performing emergency surgery and fixing me but stated that Dr. Glickman's patch was pressing on my nerves and that this could've caused nerve damage.
