Dr Glasgow was awesome, she immediately diagnosed my problem, offered many solutions and gave me the absolute best care. I give full attribution to Dr Glasgow for restoring the strength and functionality of my injured bicep. The team and plan Dr Glasgow put together for my post surgical rehab was first class and worked wonderfully. I cannot express how pleased I am with Dr Glasgow’s care, she is an awesome Physician and Surgeon!

She seems to be a good surgeon. Using a scribe would greatly improve her ability to interact with me and listen to me. I feel as if none of the Northwestern doctors have truly listened to me about my injury. From the initial ER visit to currently, much of this could have been avoided if the doctors had better listening skills.
