Bonnie J. – Sep 21, 2021
Dr. Glickel listened to my 3 years of living with pain after a surgery from another Dr. He was kind and effective in finding a solution to those pain! I was part of every step and everything was very well explained, and I felt secure to ask any question I wanted to ask. I am now pain free and the follow-up is scheduled to check that everything runs smoothly on the long run.

Raphael G. – Sep 01, 2021
Dr. Glickel gave me excellent care after experiencing a severe fracture which needed surgery including plate, screws and a bone graft. It is now 8 weeks since my surgery and have excellent range of motion and the ability to do regular tasks, From my first visit everything was expedited efficiently to the day if surgery, I am filled with gratitude to Dr, Glickel for his clarity, time and expertise. He is a gift to be cherished. His reassurance was wonderful and accurate for me especially since I am a massage therapist.

William E. – Jan 05, 2021
This was a very long process. 10 months from injury. I was not ready for surgery at the outset and Dr. Glickel waited with me to see if the humerous would heal on its own. When after 4 months it was not aligned, we decided on surgery. I appreciated the indulgence to wait on surgery till it was clear the bone would not heal properly on it own. I also appreciated the recommendation to Lang Therapy who is helping in my recovery. Everyone in Dr.Glickel's office was kind, patient and well trained for their role.

Dr. Glickel couldn't have been more thorough or thoughtful throughout the whole process, pre and post-surgery. He always took time to answer my many questions and performed my surgery flawlessly. I'm 99% recovered and went into my procedure with little fear. I will always recommend him to anyone in need and am so thankful to have had him as my surgeon.

Laurel B. – Dec 01, 2020
I have eight years of patient experience with Dr. Glickel. He has treated me successfully for arthritis of the left, and ultimately the right thumb. An initial conservative approach with effective local steroid injections was very helpful but eventually surgery became necessary. After post-operative physiotherapy I regained full and painless use of both hands to the extent that my fine movement control was preserved, I could use both heavy power and hand held tools and could play the piano with an octave hand reach and even accomplish ninths and tenths. Dr. Glickel demonstrates outstanding medical judgement and surgical skills. He is empathetic, honest, dryly humorous and welcoming. His training by two founding giants in the field of hand surgery combined with his 30+ years of clinical experience make him a premium go-to hand surgeon in New York City. I recommend his practice as top notch, 5 Star, a 100% operation! Charles E. Kordula, M.D.

Charles E. K. – Nov 09, 2020
I came to Dr. Glickel somewhat accidentally, but I am SO glad that I did! I found him after making an appointment with OrthoManhattan for a fractured ulna, but being unsure which doctor specifically to make an appointment with; they quickly directed me to an appointment with Dr. Glickel. He immediately took the time to not only diagnose my fracture, but to make sure I understood what the next steps were and that I felt comfortable with each step. I got two additional opinions from other surgeons who sang Dr. Glickel's praises and assured me I could do no better than him! After the surgery, his followups were always efficient and even enjoyable- which is an exceedingly rare thing. He is not only a great surgeon but a great person, and I would recommend him to anyone!
