Ratings for Dr. Mark Glazebrook
I always have a good experience with Dr. Glazebrook and other physicians in his office. I would like to have been helped concerning my ankles though but I understand it would be very difficult to replace my right ankle where I had mine clamped together many years ago and it healed that way leaving very little movement. I wonder if doctors in the US have been able to find a way to replace the almost totally fused ankle. I'm not here to complain as I'm sure they did what they could. Cortisone did help some. I would like to know if Dr. Glazebrook's office could send me a confirming note that says I did in fact go to the appointment(s) in 2017.
Dr Glazebrook is a nice dr, no complaints. A nurse & the social worker were supposed to arrange further appts aside from Dr Glazebrook (in an area of orthopedics outside surgery) for the chief issue however did not (called location of the further appts, nothing had been arranged contrary to what I was told). I guess this is Nova Scotia Health Authority, l really hope nobody will be surprised when I die from a bone infection! (literally)
I had a surgery done by another surgeon which didn't work as planned went to Dr. Glazebrook and he is amazing he helped me with everything even after I broke the bone fusion I still have to get more operations and feel extremely comfortable and confident that he is going to help with my problem. :)
I found Dr. Glazebrook to be abrupt. He was not at all forthcoming with information. Each time, I asked a question, I got a VERY short response. He made it very clear, he was only there if I wanted surgery - completely uninterested in my desire to solve my medical issue so I could return to a more active, physically fit lifestyle. This surprised me since he is associated with a sport clinic. He is one of only two foot orthopedic specialist in the province so a limited choice. My advice is to go prepared with questions and before you leave ask how you might have questions that arise after you leave, answered.
I just had surgery performed by Dr Glazebrooks,I found him to be very pleasant and very professional his receptionist was amazing,and so kind Im not sure what the other people experienced but my experience with him and his staff was amazing,would highly recommend him!
If we only knew how blessed we are to have such a World Class Surgeon right here in Halifax. Dr. Glazebrook has come to my aid on several occasion with exceptional always providing a prognosis & treatment path that always has lead to an excellent resolution.
I have to say I do find his Admin to be lacking. I was referred by my Dr to see him and never heard a thing. I finally called the office to inquire and it was apparent they had misplaced my. No apology. She did get me in quickly only because they had messed up. I have since called back and was told they would call me back in 2 days. It is now 2 weeks. Whenever I call I get a voice message.
I can't say enough about the outstanding care I was given by Dr Glazebrook, from the initial consult to my final visit. Dr Glazebrook and his team truly show genuine care and respect for their patients. A few days after my surguey, the pain medication I was prescribed was giving me some negative side effects that I was having difficulty tolerating. I called Dr Glazebrook's office to see if I might be able to try another prescription. Dr Glazebrook's administrative assistant immediately arranged for me to come into the clinic right away, even though Dr Glazebrook was not seeing his patients in that setting this day due to having a full day booked in the O.R. He saw me in between surgueys to examine my incision and prescribed another medication that I could tolerate. If you are unfortunate to have the circumstances that require an Orthopedic surgeon, I hope you are fortunate enough to have the excellent and professional care given by Dr Glazebrook, his administrative assistant Jessica, and the rest of his team. Thank you for your kindness and care.
Wow read a lot of the comments and I am surprised. I find dr. Glazebrook to be very nice and takes the time to listen. I mean he is quick but he is busy. There a an interview he did saying that he is the ONLY foot and ankle specialist in the province and there is no budget for another one (bs?). I have had an ortho doctor before who totally disregarded my knee injury. I have an ankle injury and with Dr. Glazebrook he is taking the time to find out EXACTLY what is wrong so he knows exactly what to do. Seriously is a nice guy, hasn't been rude so far! And I was in his office the other day and talked to his receptionist - not sure if she was the same person everyone was talking about - but she was very nice and helpful as well!
