Patient Testimonials

Dear Dr. Glasser,  Thank you for allowing me to resume my active lifestyle! After months of doctors visits, tests and eventually six weeks in a boot I was still in pain and unable to run. I made an appointment to come and speak to you as you have always been so helpful In the past. Your suggestion to try this new shock wave treatment was nothing short of a miracle! Really! After the first five minute treatment I felt much much better and with the addition of two more minute five minute treatments I am 100% pain free!!!! Thank you so much 🙂

Dear Dr. Glasser, This is a picture of my finish at the Pier House 5K in Long Branch. This is my first race in 10 months and I feel great. Thank you again for everything you did to diagnose my injury and prescribe my healing process. I hope this picture makes you smile.

Dr. Glasser- You stayed with my case and kept following up until we found the problem and fixed it. I am back on the trucks and serving the residents and visitors of Freehold Township, and it’s all thanks to you. I can’t thank you enough. Joe C.

Dr. Glasser has been a tremendous asset during my roller derby career. Through various injuries she has been quick to alleviate my fears and pain and get me back on the track as soon as possible. In addition, she has been a great ally during my fight with myofascial pain syndrome. She never trivializes my concerns or symptoms, and works with me to find the best course of treatment to alleviate my symptoms. I never feel rushed in her office and she takes the time to explain the different treatment options available. She keeps on top of the latest research and that is invaluable when you are battling a disease that is still largely unknown. Being a patient of Dr. Glasser’s has changed the way I am able to live my life. Heather M.

As an elite athlete, immediate and successful medical care can be the difference between a winning season and no season at all! After suffering a debilitating injury in competition, Dr. Glasser’s urgent care, diagnosis and outstanding treatment allowed me to return to triathlon and ultimately, to qualify for the Ironman World Championship, Kona, Hawaii.

As a competitive athlete and an outdoor enthusiast we find ourselves taking risks and we unfortunately find ourselves in situations which we can’t avoid. In 2009 I started experiencing extreme leg pain which took me off my bike and being able to do what I love to do. After searching for answers and seeing multiple Doctors I was only getting worse. After several months of searching I found Dr Glasser who took the time to help me and do everything that was needed to get me back into all my activities. She was patient with me, caring and gave me the best treatment I needed. I have to say after a year of doing everything I need to do I was back at it.
I owe it all to Dr. Glasser. I even won championship title in 2011. Since then she has been our go to Doctor for any injuries. My husband had a snowboarding accident the winter of 2012 which left him not able to do anything for several weeks. As an elite racer we worried that with the compression fracture he had to his spine that he would not be able to ride again. He was experiencing numbness and pain for quit a few weeks. With the care of Dr. Glasser he is back on his back today in hopes to be able to race before the season ends in September. We love the care Dr Glasser gives to us and we couldn’t thank her enough for the many years of care she has given us. Thank you! Teresa D.
When you are a 78 year old with a recent pelvic stress fracture, scheduled to run a marathon overseas in two month, you truly need miracle “healing hands”! Laurie Glasser and her Peak Performance team went to work on me and actually got me in shape to finish the race. Laurie’s medical miracles equal her “bed-side manners” accomplishments! Convincing my wife and kids that I could survive such a race and still finish with my leg fully attached puts her solidly in the “walk on water” category. Thank you!
Dr. Glasser,
I’m all bolted and stitched up.  Good as new! I want to just thank you profusely for being an amazing anchor to good medical care and advice from across the world on multiple occasions over the last 10 years.  There are not many doctors that I trust and I just really appreciate you.  So thank you so much.  I think you have assisted in cases involving Dengue fever in Sumatra (circa 2009), dirt bike related ligament damage on Thai-Burmese border (2011), and a host of other domestic minor medical tragedies as well. The surgeon was great and the experience quite pleasant overall.  The anesthesiologist was from India and so lovely – we had a great chat.

Thanks to you Phil is doing well. If it were not for you and your request for an MRI when we came to see you things could have turned out differently. So thank you so much for your instincts, knowledge and patient advocacy because we did the MRI that same day and you notified us immediately what was found. We can’t thank you enough.
Laura and Phil

First, thank you again for your tremendous knowledge of research and medications-and then choosing one that would help me without the horrible side effects that over thirty (over 30!) doctors in the past prescribed for me.
Second, thank you for the referral for Jack. He was most pleased.
With our sincere thanks, warmest good wishes and love.
Jack and Barbara

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Glasser for several years for many different issues. She is amazing!!! Always listens to what I have to say and never fails in getting me out of pain. I trust her advice and have been recommending her to friends and family since my very first visit.”

Kim

“I was looking for a physiatrist near my Jersey shore home instead of driving into NY to Hospital for Special Surgery, where I had been going for 15 years. Found Dr. Glasser online and after studying her credentials, made an appt. I have seen her twice now. Both appts were a great experience all around. Just had a left shoulder injection and will definitely continue going back to her.”

JareeMane

“Dr. Glasser is extremely thorough and professional. She takes the time to understand all of your symptoms and applies her depth of knowledge to get to the issue.

Kristen

“Dr Glasser is The Wizard and the Orthopaedic Institute is OZ….. I feel better the minute I walk in, just knowing my issue will be correctly addressed, and I will be back to the Sports I Love. It’s that simple. Truly Grateful to Dr Glasser always and her Team….. God Bless you ….. Highly Recommend”
