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!

I had a broken finger that required surgery. I met with Dr. Gickel after finding him online. He was a fantastic doctor and great surgeon. The surgery was as good as can be expected and follow ups were easy. After about 10 weeks I have near full range of motion in my finger and have no limits on my activities. Highly recommended.

Dr. Glickel saved my career as a chef and as a dog trainer. Without him, my life would literally have been over. At the age of 27, starting my life, getting married, saving up money to buy a house, all of that would have been over if not for Dr. Glickel. He is so kind, funny, SMART, and caring. The BEST doctor I have ever been to.

Dr. Glickel is not only an exceptional doctor, he is personable and kind. He is not in a hurried rush, even though he is very busy. He is the sort of doctor patients would like to see, but are difficult to find any more. The result of my surgery was excellent. He was able to make one feel very comfortable before surgery. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a hand surgeon.

Dr. Glickel is amazing. I went to him because I had ulnar nerve damage to the point I didn't have any muscle in my right hand and I couldn't feel anything in my little and ring finger. Dr. Glickel brought back my hand by performing surgery and was always straight forward with me and my family about the expectation of the surgery. I am so happy with the outcome of the surgery.

I was Terrified when I broke my hand. I work with my hands and I was concerned about choosing the proper doctor. I made the best possible decision choosing Dr. Glickel. His diagnosis was clear. His plan of action was swift and his surgery was outstanding. Nice guy, too.
