Office was in the back of the Carney Hospital, staff was pretty friendly though mix up and not used to dealing with ZocDoc and said I had an appt the previous week though all my info said this week. Once sortedout, they were very helpful and the doctor was on point naming some references of NBA, NFL to name a few of the people he works with.

The consult took only a minute. If you have a specific issue he will handle right away, but don't expect much attention or time to discuss longer problems. I don't like doctors that take care in a hush, but he seems very experienced and confident.

Dr. McGlowan was attentive and quick! This was my first appointment with him. Appeared to know what he was talking about in his rapid assessment of my visit. Waiting time was extremely long, but everyone waited, which spoke well of hiscare. I asked one of the gentlemen in the waiting room who waited as long as I did what he thought of the doctor and he raved about him saying he was the best, and repaired his knee perfectly.
