Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gleitman "Being in private practice for the past 38 years as well as having undergone surgery myself as a patient provides me with the unique experience to understand all issues and concerns facing the patient. 

It is my goal to educate the patient, to provide an understanding of what the problem is and what the various options are for treating any given patient problem. 

It is my goal to make the patient feel at ease where everything will be thoroughly explained beforehand.  All options will be discussed whether it be surgical or nonsurgical. 

In addition, I will provide the patient with a realistic understanding of what to expect. 

It is my goal that all questions will be answered and that the patient will feel satisfied knowing that they will be receiving the best possible care."
