Dr. Glickman

Dr. Glickman truly changed my life. I had a breast reduction, and from start to finish him and his staff helped me throughout this entire process, including working with my insurance company, and overall making this a seamless process with booking, etc. Dr. Glickman is personable, he is funny, and he made me feel comfortable while undergoing this intensive surgery. I couldn’t be happier with my results, not only did he help relieve my chronic back pain, but in the process I gained more confidence with myself. Thank you Dr. Glickman!
