Dr. Steven Glickel, MD - Reviews

S. T. – Apr 13, 2020

Patient

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.

Herbert W. – Mar 02, 2020

I feel blessed to have had the highly skilled Dr. Glickel doing surgery on my fingers more than once. Always a problem free recovery.

Dr. Glickel showed tremendous care and patience throughout the process. He explained the prognosis and the options in a clear manner. His care was truly exceptional. He helped me rehab from my injuries and regain full function of the injured areas.

Patient

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.

James G. – Oct 11, 2019

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.

I had 3 different surgeries with Dr. Glickel and each one was very successful. He is also kind and concerned and listens well. I couldn't recommend him enough if you need hand or shoulder surgery.

Rose B. – Jul 17, 2019

Patient

When I injured by wrist mid April and was told by ER physicians I needed surgery, I turned to my brother in law who was the chairman of Anesthesiology at Universithy of Penn. The head of Orthopedic surgery there referred me to Dr. Glickel. Three months later, the trust I placed in Dr. Glickel proved to contribute towards my emotional and physical healing. today. Thank you Dr. Glickel and thank you too to his assistant Bendi who arranged the surgery and post operative care.

Elisabeth C. – Jul 17, 2019

I so wish I had done this sooner. My finger is now straight (before hand was resembling a claw) the operation was so easy and no pain> My hand felt better even the next day all pain from the past years gone.

1 Joan R. – Jul 03, 2019

Patient

I've broken both wrists in the last four years, and needed surgery for both. Dr Glickel was my surgeon both times. Each surgery was 100% successful. Dr. Glickel is a extremely capable surgeon, but more importantly, he is patient,kind, and thoughtful.

Danielle V. – Jun 25, 2019

Patient

I am extremely grateful for Dr. Glickel. He is an expert in his field. When I severed two tendons in my hand I was not sure what the future looked like for its mobility. He showed true concern and never made me feel like he was in a hurry. At nearly two months post-op my hand is on track to be 100% and the scars are healing beautifully. Thanks to his brilliance and surgical skills, I have made great progress throughout my recovery. I am thankful for this great outcome and positive experience.

Jeanine E. – Jun 11, 2019

From start to finish, Dr. Glickel provided me with the best care for my condition. He made the process painless and extremely efficient. I feel like a new person and would highly recommend Dr. Glickel!

V. G. – Jun 11, 2019

Patient

I came to Dr. Glickel for my De Quervain's tenosynovitis a couple of years ago. He diagnosed it and gave me an injection in my wrist that was supposed to allievate the pain for about six months, but it actually was two years before it flared up again. When I returned to Dr. Glickel, he explained that he could either give me another shot, which would provide temporary results, or perform surgery to correct the problem permanently. I opted for the surgery. Dr. Glickel explained everything involved thoroughly, answered every question thoughtfully, and scheduled the procedure for the following week. Pre-surgery, he explained every step of what he would be doing and what I could expect immediately after, and in the ensuing weeks and months. In just two months, there is only a trace amount of discomfort, a small fading scar from the incision, and the De Quervain's is permanently gone. Dr. Glickel does amazing work, and I wish all doctors had his patient and professional bedside manner.

I'm cured. Very happy. Dr. Glickel was thoughtful and respectful; answered my questions, was appropriately reassuring and thereby enabled me to get en EMG, which I had been avoiding out of fear, and which was needed in order to make the diagnosis.

David F. – Apr 09, 2019

Patient

Dr. Glickel came highly recommended by my primary physician here in NYC. I suffered a hand injury in high school. 20 + years later, the scar tissue on my hand was causing increased pain. I was hesitant about going in for another surgery but I took a leap of faith and found Dr. Glickel to be a trusted and caring surgeon. I am on the mend and feeling close to 100%. I'm extremely grateful to Dr. Glickel and his team.

I could not have asked for a better doctor. He really took his time to make me feel comfortable with the procedure that was to be done. I have recovered much quicker than expected. I am grateful that I got referred to him

K. W. – Mar 26, 2019

Patient

Dr Glickel and his staff have been very responsive and supportive navigating a difficult procedure. They were able to schedule my surgery quickly, which minimized my time out on disability. Their office and out patient facilities are excellent. The one drawback it the wait time, especially during follow up visits. But this is worth it to me for the high level of care that I received.

R. P. – Mar 13, 2019

I was very nervous about my surgery, Dr Glickel was very understanding and patiently listened to my concerns and explained in a way that made sense to me. He was also great after the surgery.

Christina H. – Feb 27, 2019

I had cubital tunnel and carpel tunnel decompression surgeries performed by Dr. Glickel on the same date. In my opinion the surgeries couldn't have gone better. Dr. Glickel prepared me well for what to expect during the operations and what kind of recovery to anticipate. Dr. Glickel was clear and precise in explaining the nature of my complaints and quelled any concern I may have had about the surgical repair. He accurately described what I could expect following the ...

i was so scared after falling down a flight of stairs and breaking...shattering...my elbow and breaking my wrist. Dr Glickel repaired it and i have almost full range of motion today, just 4 months later. other surgeons wanted to replace it which would have meant a lot of restriction in my life but Dr Glickel listened and understood how my lifestyle would have been very compromised with an elbow replacement. He was always kind and patient and I never once felt rushed o...

Dr. Glickel is noted for being one of the best hand surgeons in the country - after being treated by him I can confirm. He diagnosed me quickly, schedule surgery immediately, referred me to an orthopedic therapist and continues to see me 10 weeks post op for follow ups. He truly cares about his patients and I would refer any person in need of his assistance!

Michele O. – Feb 06, 2019

Patient

Dr. Glickel is absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough kind words about him both personally and professionally. After one failed thumb surgery I was dreading doing it again and feeling quite anxious about it. He spent extra time talking to me about it both over the telephone and in the office. And from the moment I got out of surgery I could already tell that my procedure and care was far superior to that which I received during my first surgery at a local, prestigio...

Kishan S. – Feb 04, 2019

Found Dr. Glickel online with a nagging pain in the wrist and he was very methodical and took time to diagnose correctly with out rushing into unnecessary procedures. Was very friendly and listened to you. Staff and the whole office was pleasant experience. He was very accommodating too. Once there was a mix up with the scheduling and he took me on a day off. Caring and overall an amazing surgeon. Highly recommend!

I really had no idea what I was getting into when a Orthopedist recommended surgery for two trigger fingers which had literally left me without the ability to use my left hand. Dr. Glickel was able to restore the hand giving it far more mobility than prior to his surgery. As the healing process continues, I am confident that every day the hand is getting stronger and more useful. Dr. Glikel also recommended an excellent Occupational Therapist whose entire face lit up wh...

I chose to see Dr Glickel for an issue I had with my finger. I selected him based off of other patients reviews, and those reviews were right! Very positive experience from the moment I walked into the office. I never felt rushed, all of my questions were asked, and I had very successful surgery with a speedy recovery! I would recommend Dr. Glickel to anyone!

I've been seeing Dr Glickel for a little over a year now and his attention and care has been nothing shy of excellent. I've felt valued as a patient and I feel fully knowledgeable moving forward with my continued recovery.

Mary A. S. – Jan 09, 2019

Patient

Dr. Steven Glickel has taken wonderful care of my wrist following a fracture sustained in mid-October 2018. His immediate response to my injury was to allow the healing process to progress, and then determine if subsequent surgery was required for an optimal outcome. Two weeks later, surgery was necessary and my new plate facilitates a full range of motion 9 weeks post-op. If you need a hand surgeon, look no further. Dr. Glickel deserves more than 5 stars!

Dr. Glickel is an excellent diagnostician. He is not interventionist, meaning that he always pursues the least invasive cure available. His explanations helped me to understand the structure and functions of my hand and arm. The exercises he recommended were spot on. I will always work with him.

Dr Glickel is not only warm, knowledgeable, and a good communicator, but he is also brilliant at what he does. After my finger surgery, my physical therapist told me that she had never seen a patient recover so quickly. It has only been a few weeks since the surgery and I am already using my finger in my work fully again. I give all the credit to Dr Glickel. I wouldn't want a hand surgery by any other doctor.

L. B. – Sep 04, 2018

Dr. Glickel's surgery and post surgical care could not have been improved upon. The professional, skilled, caring approach to all aspects of diagnosis, surgery and post surgical care led to complete rehabilitation of my thumb. I'm most appreciative of this positive experience.

Dr. Glickel exceeded all of my expectations as both a surgeon and an attentive listener to the specific concerns I had related to my shattered left ring finger. He managed to work treatment of my injury around a month-long trip I had planned before starting law school. I am happy to say I typed this review pain-free only two weeks after having the pins removed from my finger.

I had an outstanding experience with Dr. Glickel and his team. I broke my arm, and as a professional violinist, I needed quality care on my path to recovery. Dr. Glickel was thoughtful, attentive, caring, and helped me plan my recovery and successful return to playing again. He's an expert in his field, and came highly recommended from friends and therapists whose opinions I trust. Still, he and his team exceeded expectations. The office is very well run, and the staff were also great!

May 14, 2018

Patient

The diagnosis was pretty clear before I came in, I had a broken wrist, but the evaluation and explanation of what needed to be done felt thorough and professional. I had surgery a week later (accommodating both our schedules) and even when I panicked that night from the severe pain the on-call doctor was able to calmly help over the phone at 3am. After that, the healing process was pretty smooth.

I had a wrist fracture earlier in the year. I went to see Dr. Glickel right away for the needed surgery. It has been a 3 month process. He has been very helpful and willing throughout the recovery process. Appointments don't feel rushed at all and he goes over all the details and answers my questions thoroughly. To top it off, his staff is great as well. They are very friendly and very willing to assist. I feel at east coming in for my appointments knowing I am in great hands of Dr. Glickel.

I have been treated by Dr. Glickel for years for basal joint arthritis of the right thumb. I was very reluctant to get surgery because my hobby is guitar playing. However, when the pain reached the point where I could no longer play at at all I had no choice. The internet was filled with scary tales; pain, suffering and loss of use. Dr. Glickel was reassuring. After 12 weeks, I began to start playing again. Today, at 16 weeks I am back to practicing 45 minutes before I need to rest.

This is my second surgical experience with Dr. Glickel, the first was for a trigger finger on the same right hand, index finger Since then Dr. Glickel has treated my arthritic middle finger with steroid shots When my finger was swollen and often painful Dr. Glickel suggested surgery. All went well and we just removed the dressing from my surgical procedure.

Dr. Glickel explained the issues with my wrist and thoroughly described the options open to me during my first visit.

My right elbow was in constant pain for over one month and I was diagnosed with "golfer's elbow". I carry a lot of heavy things and apparently my tendon became inflamed. I made an appointment with Dr. Glickel, he examined me, described my condition in easy to understand terms, pointed out the range of motions that aggravated my condition and then sent me to physical therapy. I was able to change the way that I use my right arm on a daily basis, and 2 months later the pain is gone.

I came to Dr. Glickel because my left hand dropped things all the time. I thought: arthritis. Wrong. I'd torn a ligament in my thumb in a fall. My right hand had pain & numbness in the thumb & two fingers & an atrophied muscle at the base of the thumb. Arthritis? Wrong. Carpal tunnel. He explained what he could & couldn't do, I had reconstructive surgery on my left thumb &, 6 months later, CT surgery on my right hand. Both hands work perfectly now. I don't have arthritis.

I had to see Dr. Glickel with a cyst on a pointer finger. I had previously been to another doctor who had unsuccessfully treated the cyst. Dr. Glickel was quick to diagnose that surgery was required.

Severe aches & pain, pins & needles, trigger finger and loss of feeling in both hands brought me to see Dr Glickle. He felt carpal tunnel surgery was the answer.

Wow! Great doctor experience! Dr. Glickel is brilliant and kind. One could say he has the bedside manner of a nurse and the brain of a world class surgeon. His diagnosis was spot on and his care could not have been better. Everyone in his office was wonderful, from the woman at the front desk to his nurses. Dr. Glickel made me feel at ease and for that, and for his excellent care, I will be forever grateful.

Dr. Glickel is the real deal. Besides being highly credentialed, experienced -- and exceedingly smart -- he has a caring bedside manner and takes time to explain his diagnosis and how to approach treatment. His staff is knowledgeable, friendly -- and very helpful.

When I needed to see a hand doctor I asked a number of friend's in NY, friends who usually have varying opinions on everything, and yet when it came to a hand doctor, all agreed that Dr. Glickel was the best around. After an overwhelming endorsement like that I made an appointment and went to see him...they were right, he is the best hand doctor around. He diagnosed my issue, I returned, he operated and had me out the door all effortlessly. His entire staff is wonderful! I recommend them all.
