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.
Second, thank you for the referral for Jack. He was most pleased.
With our sincere thanks, warmest good wishes and love.
“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.”
“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.”
“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. Her wealth of experience and training leads to her amazing talent and ability to diagnose and treat the problem. I have referred several friends to Dr. Glasser and they all have raved about her expertise as well!”
“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”
