Dr. Glickel is an excellent surgeon - the surgery itself was flawless and lead to an excellent recovery, but what I appreciated most was his thorough explanation of my diagnosis and my options for recovery, without feeling pressured. In my case, a Bennett Fracture in my thumb required surgery, but the whole process was as painless as a surgery could be! And with regular follow-ups and an excellent recommendation for physical therapy office, I felt taken care of and eventually made a full recovery.

D. Glickel has been taking a multiple health issues in my arm and has been and continues to be very attentive to everything before and after surgeries. Time was taken when needed and thing got very fast once decisions were made. Also his staff is very nice and available which was important for me. I trusted him and the results are great.

DR GLICKEL IS THE BEST FOR HAND PROBLEMS
I have been a patient -- on and off -- for more than 30 years. Dr. Glickel has always been clear and honest during consultations, exhibiting the foremost knowledge and skill in the area. He only recommends surgery when and if it is necessary. Five stars and more.

Dr Glickel was absolutely amazing. He always spent as much time with me as I needed. He would always call back as soon as possible and was very patient answering many of my questions. I never felt that I was rushed which can often be the case with other doctors. His knowledge and experience regarding wrist injuries was the best. He was able to give the correct diagnosis for an unusual case due to injury to my wrist. The surgery that Dr Glickel performed addressed my issue and increased significantly the ability to use my wrist in every day life. I would recommend Dr. Glickel over any other wrist surgeon.

My expectations for service and outcome were overwhelmingly exceeded. I couldn't imagine recommending another surgeon for someone requiring surgical care or evaluation for hands. Dr. Glickel provided the best surgical care experience--from evaluation, surgery, to follow-up--that I've ever experienced. I'm deeply grateful for his time and care and abilities.

I originally met Dr. Glickel when came to him to get a second opinion adfter my injured my right hand. He examined me and noted I did not ned surgery while the first surgeon had recommened surgery. Such is the nature of Dr. Glickel who truly cares for his patient and that is his one true goal. Lo and behold after few months my hand had completely healed (confirmed with CT scan) This time I came to Dr. Glickel after I fractured my right hand. He performed surgery and I am all healed now. The entire process was so great and smooth. The full care team is highly knowledgable and amazing. Cant thank you enough for making my right (dominant) hand good as new again.

I could not have had a better experience fixing and recovering from a broken wrist. Dr. Glickel was clear in explaining my choices and recovery timelines. The surgery went great, everyone on staff is kind and helpful. 10 weeks post surgery, and I'm pretty much back to normal - even doing downward dogs.

I have had carpal tunnel syndrome with varying levels of severity for several decades. Arriving at the decision for surgery was a big deal obviously. Dr. Glickel, both by reputation and demeanor did everything to alleviate any fear and allowed me the utmost confidence in a positive outcome. I will recommend him to anyone seeking his tremendous skill and experience

Dr Glickel and his team went above and beyond. They got me in, explained what had to happen, and performed the necessary surgery as fast as possible and preserved full use of my hand, which is very important to me as a professional ballet dancer. I can not thank them enough!

I suffered with elbow pain for almost 4 years, and after another surgery I still wasn't healed. I found Dr. Glickel and he spent almost 2 hours with me at my new patient appointment trying to figure out all ways that he can help. After some decisions, we came to surgery. Now 3 months after, I can barely remember what that pain felt like. Every day I'm healing more, able to do more activities, such as opening a heavier door without struggle. And every day I'm thanking that I put myself into Dr. Glickels hands to fix my pain. Thank you and Thank you again!
