I just had surgery on my foot to have a ganglion removed by Dr Glazebrook and would not recommend him if you have to deal with insurance companies. He did not do the paper work until 3weeks after the surgery despite me telling him I needed it go go back to work. Then he put on it that I could have started working 2 weeks after my surgery, so I lost 1 weeks wages because of him, but he got his $50.00 for doing the paper work!
Well after he screwed up my first surgery. I spent 3 weeks in pain went in for a check up and he swore up and down all was good. Thank god for Dr Roberts. He had a gut feeling something wasn't right. He sent me for an MR I and then called in a radiologist who noticed the 2 screws holding my tibia and fibia together missed. So on came the second surgery. When he fixed his mistake and also found a bone chip in my ankle he missed the first time.
I just had my first appointment with Dr. Glazebrook. He was very knowledgeable & very sure of himself! I find this very comforting! I want a doctor who know his stuff! I was told to call his office, which I did. I reach an answering machine, left a message and waited only 30 minutes for a return call. Karen, Dr. Glazebrook's person, was polite and pleasant. Will let you know how it goes from here. I am waiting for a surgery date.
very impolite, unhelpful at all and rude, never gave me enough time or even time to explain the issue, he does not care about the patient's pain or the difficulties the patient would suffer after his decision. If you were (unfortunately) referred to him, expect the worst cause u gonna get it.
Trying to see him is more painful than the condition itself. You are right his secretary has no interpersonal skills. Dr. Glazebrook has a terribe bedside manner. He is quick, arrogant and not at all friendly. Granted he may know his stuff but after my bunion surgery I spoke to several people in the waiting room during my routine follow-up appointments and interestingly enough everyone felt that he was rude and if they mentioned they were not completely satisfied with the surgery he told them they had arthritis and needed to have the bone fused. He said this to me after I told him I was not satisified and had I not spoken to others in the waiting room I might have believed him. I did not go for the recommended bone fusion.
Dr. Glazebrook is a very busy doctor but I found that he gave me sufficient time to address my concerns. Yes I had to wait a very long time to see him but that isn't his fault. I wouldn't at all say he is rude. He is very matter of fact and gets to the point. This happens to be a quality I appreciate. He performed surgery on my foot a few weeks ago and things are progressing well. I have to agree with the comments expressed by others regarding his secretaty...she really lacks people skills.
I felt Dr. Glazebrook very knowledgeable and helpful. Great assessment and advice. I do want to say that his secretary, Karen, that a lot of people have had negative things to say about her - to be extremely helpful, quick to respond and very professional. I had read this site before I called and was not expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised. I hope she reads this.
Dr. Glazebrook is VERY busy. Expect to wait a year or more to see him. He is very knowledgeable and professional. His secretary on the other hand is not a people person and can be rather condescending is you don't understand the info she is explaining. She NEVER returns phone call in a timely fashion if at all and her excuses for not returning calls are routine (she gave me the same lame excuse three times in a 12 month span)I have a better memory than she gave me credit for. All in all once things were done I was pleased with the outcome.
