Verified Patient Reviews
Very courteous from the Doctor himself to staff.
Dr. Gluck is to the point and efficient. He made me feel comfortable during an uncomfortable exam and made the point to ask me about a recent vacation I took even though I'm a fairly new patient. I would recommend him.
He seemed attentive and had good bedside manner. It seems the process of his office is broken as I waited 45 minutes to see him, and they thought that was normal....
Very disappointing visit. Wait was long. Office feels and operates like a prison or a drug testing facility: dark, stuffy, office with tiny exam rooms. Wait of about 45-50 mins from my appointment time to when I saw the Doctor. Dr. Gluck came in like he was kicking a car tire: no more than cursory glance, and he didn't answer or address my questions with anything more specific than "yeah, well you never know". I asked about one symptom, he quickly diagnosed it, and when I asked about a different symptom he said "well, that's not related to the first symptom, now is it?" ...I don't know if it is or isn't Dr. Gluck, you're the doctor, not me. His little joke would be fine if he answered or even attempted to address my question but he didn't. He brushed it off completely and told me to go ask another specialist, without addressing my actual question. When asked why I would, at a relatively young age, develop unusual symptoms, he responded sarcastically and laughed about how anyone could get symptoms at any age. He also made fun of a different specialist's procedure I told him I was having later in the week, about which I was worried, and which I found to be extremely inappropriate. Overall: long wait, depressing, dark dirty office, unprofessional doctor. AVOID.
Gluck was friendly, thorough and reassuring. However, I did have to fill out paperwork at the office although I filled it online via ZockDoc. They did not seem to realize they had that option selected for their profile. Not a huge deal. Just wasted time when I thought I was saving it.
This was my first visit and I found the doctor and staff to very pleasant and professional.
Nice t hurry
Dont come here unless you have no other choice
The appointment felt completely rushed and he didn't seem like he wanted to take the time to assess my health.
The wait is indeed long as everyone is indicating, but Dr. Gluck is both popular and thorough, so this is just a function of basic economics. Dr. Gluck spent a lot of time with me and listened to my concerns very carefully-- he even went into the ultrasound with me and observed. Worth the wait.
He was pleasant and very knowledgeable. He explained everything in detail and I felt very comfortable with him. His staff was friendly and hard working even though the was a huge workload the day of my visit.
Dr. Gluck was kind and attentive, but the office was a nightmare. I had to wait over an hour to see him, and the reception staff was not very friendly.
A long wait, but it is understandable due the big amount f pacients. The doctor and team were great.
The office was very clean, & they had used all of the space given to them very efficiently. I felt very hopeful, & put at ease every time i was introduced to a staff member. very warm bedside manner. Excellent staff! Loved that they played soothing oldies music too!
Very quick diagnosis, only problem was the wait (1-2 hours). He is a very nice person and I would recommend him.
I recommend going in the afternoon when it is less busy! Dr. Gluck is a nice guy, very informative and direct.
Dr. Gluck was helpful and professional, and seemed to truly want to help make sure my questions were answered and resolved as quickly as possible. The office has a lot of patients to serve, which I suppose is to be expected with a high quality urologist in New York. As a result, there was a bit of a wait, and then once you are seen there's briskness about everything, but it was never unprofessional.
The doctor was great, but when I had to re-do all my paperwork that I did on ZocDoc for some strange reason. Apparently they couldn't get my files or something. Also when I called up a couple of weeks later I found the lady on the phone to be pretty rude.
Dr Gluck is friendly, has a sense of humor, and efficient. Some of the front desk staff are friendly, some are decidedly not. The woman who conducts the ultra sound area has a very poor bedside manner. I owned a business with many employees; it would take me a half day to re-train this woman, or, she would be out the door. The women in the back, who set appointments, are very very friendly.
Long wait but great Doctor, very knowledgable and caring.
Very professional and attentive. Busy office, but Dr. Gluck gets you in and out. Highly recommend .
I like Dr Gluck very much. His service is excellent. However, I don't like waiting for so long, and there is not enough seating in the waiting room. There are many older people; they need a seat. Dr Gluck and his partners would do well to: have a bigger office, and have more good restrooms in the back, where everyone goes to give a urine sample. Recently, I visited one of my doctors; he had expanded his office, renovated the restroom, and renovated the area where the staff was seated. It was a pleasure to be in his office and waiting room. This group should consider doing the same.
Great guy. Great dr. A real mench.
Dr. Gluck was very down to earth, thorough, and explained the diagnosis and prognosis. He was very friendly, even when I came back a few minutes after leaving to asking a quick question. As an added bonus, there is a pharmacy next door that was very speedy.
Dr. Gluck is awesome takes his time explains everything in great detail.
Very thorough and attentive. We need more doctors in the world like Dr. Gluck.
It was very informative and it was great to see him
Very affable and knowledgeable. No nonsense approach. Very happy with outcomes.
The office was disorganized. I'd filled out my paperwork on ZocDoc, but they said their system was sync'd or something, so I had to fill out papers. The nurses didn't seem to know what I was supposed to do (provide a urine sample?) after my exam. My sample cup didn't have my name on it, so who knows what happened to it after I left. All the others on the counter had names on them. The doctor was nice enough, though basically the visit was 5 minutes in which he told me to make an appointment at a separate lab, but I waited 50 minutes for that short appointment. I wouldn't go here again. Thank goodness I can find out my lab results on the phone. (Speaking of, they had their phones down for two days prior to my appointment, one day due to Verizon and the second day due to just having busy signals every time you rang.)
A real Dr. and my standards are very high regarding to a physician.
Despite the office appearing as if it were still 1990, it ran with amazing efficiency considering the number of patients. My only negative comment is that they wanted me to fill out their forms even though I had checked in online and filled out all of the forms there. It took threatening to go elsewhere and speaking with the doctor to get them to retrieve the necessary paperwork from ZocDoc.
I am very disappointed with this doc. I had a bad experience with a surgery I underwent with him. I will have a second surgery by a plastic surgeon to correct the results. Apart from this he gives a fair treatment to patients.
The front desk staff was sort of helpful, although a bit grumpy and condescending. I got the vibe that they like to order people around in a fussy way. There was a guy that waited two hours and was really upset about that. I had to wait almost one hour. The filing system was ridiculous, reminded me of a law office and if the place burned down your records would be just gone. All the ZocDoc "Check In" data is not being sent to their computers, and you have to fill out forms that ask the same questions. So yeah, not very modern or helpful. Dr. Gluck was great, though, once I got to see him.
Doctor Gluck was great, I would highly recommend him!
If you are a woman, do not come to this office.
The doctor was very nice and helpful. Although he didn't know exactly what the problem was he has decided on a course of action that I am confident in. The wait however, was miserable. I am no stranger to a doctors office and realize that when you go in the afternoon you will wait. I waited for over two hours though. It was painful.
I was very unhappy about the amount of time I had to wait to be seen (1h15m). I complained to the staff but was given unsatisfactory excuses that did not seem genuine. However, Dr Gluck took my complaint seriously and apologized. I like the doctor, don't like the practice's management style.
Nice doctor. He attended to me very well and listened to all my health problems and ran a test to actually find out what could be causing the health issues. Good doctor. Told me to call him back on Thursday to find out about my test. I appreciate all the care and attitude showed by Dr Robert.
Everyone in the office is very friendly and professional. The doctor was kind and frank.
The staff was kind of friendly. When I finally got to see Dr Gluck he looked at my paperwork and he saw my insurance. He told me that 'many insurances don't pay for the procedure. Take this medicine it will flush it out and comeback in two weeks'.I said that the stone was too big to flush it out, and he responded 'you never know' That left me a bad taste. I went to see him because of the many good reviews he had, but the office is just a money making business. I will never recommend him to my family and friends.
Dr. Gluck was AWESOME as usual!
First time patient. Doctor Gluck was attentive and reassuring.
It was pretty fast! My appointment was at 11:15 and at 11:15 I was in his office ! He's very nice and doesn't make you feel awkward. He's very confidant with his diagnosis and hopefully it works!
Great doctor, in and out quickly.
The office workers are not helpful and unprofessional. The doctor required to do a procedure and we asked to check if our insurance will cover it. They gave 100% guarantee, however, we received a huge bill two months later. The office of Dr. Gluck just said things happen.
I found Dr. Gluck personable and comforting.
Great guy, thorough, good staff
All around great doctor! Little wait time, very attentive and was able to find solutions where others failed. Go to Dr. Gluck!
I'm comforted by his knowledgeable and friendly manner...
He was okay, quick when I did see him. Did really explain things much. Overbooked! Office crowded not very welcoming or comfortable.
Dr. Gluck is a pure professional his office looks extremely crowded and can cause log jams from patient to patient but he has a good bed side manner and very thorough. Office a little out of date but my purpose is to get my needs met and not worry about the cosmetics.
This is the first time i visit this doctor. Great knowledge. Definitely I would recommend him.
He knows what he is doing. I feel like I'm in good hands.
Me pareció un buen médico a primera impresión, pero todavía es muy temprano para tener una idea acabada, fue la primera cita; espero que tanto él como las asistentes me traten igual de bien el próximo día 7 que es mi segunda cita. Tuve la impresión de que es un médico que escucha y se interesa por el paciente, ojalá no me equivoque.
Always leave feeling i received the best care and attention!
Excellent doctor .
Good doctor but i had a 115pm was finally seen at 145pm i made my appt during my lunchtime which is a hour. Hence returning to my office late.
First of all, the reason why people make a doctor appointment is because they have a job . I understand you want to cram 20 patients in an hour to make the most money but obviously they don't respect patient's time.20 to 30 min waiting time is pretty lame but acceptable but when the uneducated and rude receptionist seem to care less about how a patient is waiting for an hour, that is a sign never to come back to this practice. The doctor is knowledgeable but so are other doctors who won't make you wait for an hour for the sake of making MOST money
The waiting time was more than an hour and the receptionist said " it's normal" I mean is she insane? people have job and things to do.Even with an appointment, you would expect to wait an hour at this place.
Consultation felt a little rushed.
Very professional. Put me at ease. Staff very professional and welcoming. Would definitely visit again.
Professional and quick as always.
Once you get in to see Dr. Gluck, he takes his time to discuss issues, identify treatment options and respond to questions.
It is always a pleasure to be treated by Dr. Gluck!!! Best regards!! Johanna Pichardo.-??
It was great.
I've been seeing Dr. Gluck for a number of years. He's a great guy and a great doctor. Highly recommended. Excellent staff too.
Very nice and competent professional.
Doc was fine, quick, nice, but I had to wait almost 2 hours to see him.
When I finally got to see the doctor he diagnosed my symptoms quickly and scheduled me for a test. He also referred me to another doctor for a hernia consultation.
Good doctor, chaotic office. Long wait, crowded waiting room. Was never given the receipt for my copay. They lost/threw away my sample before the doctor could look at it.
Always a pleasure to visit Dr. Gluck's Office. Staff members are always friendly..
Dr Gluck put me so much at ease during my visit, it was if you had met an old friend you had not seen for a few years,the office staff were very professional and courteous. I highly reccomend Dr Gluck and his staff, Dr Gluck will be my urologist from now on. Thank you so much ......
Professor Gluck was great, very quick and professional. Had to wait a while to be seen though.
Dr. Gluck's office is busier than Grand Central. Do not expect to be seen at your scheduled appointment time. Do expect to wait for more than hour to see the doctor. Do not expect a polite or even professional reception staff. Do expect a cordial relationship with Dr. Gluck and not be able to comprehend why he'd run a practice like this.
Dr. Gluck was great and fixed something my primary care physician has been working unsuccessfully on for months.
Incredibly affable guy and seemingly very competent.
Very friendly and knowledgable!
Worst doctor's office ever. Whoever called this a factory, it's an understatement.
Dr. Gluck was extremely professional and truly knows his stuff. A great front office staff who are very helpful. The space is tight and the wait wasn't too bad but that doesn't stop this place from being a great practice and Dr. Gluck from being a great doc. Highly Recommended
All good. I will go again if necessary.
Wait was a bit much but when I finally saw him he made sure to spend plenty of time with me and address any questions/concerns I had.
Good doctor get to the point.
This office is a factory. Way too overbooked! I waited for almost an hour to be told they haven't even verified my insurance yet. Mind you, I sent them my insurance info prior to the appointment via Zoc Doc. Horrendous!
Dr. Gluck appears to be very knowledgeable and is quite thorough. Wait time was awful but once you're in at least you get to leave feeling as though you've covered all bases and you've been properly considered.
The doctor was very professional and friendly at the same time. Briefly he asked me questions about my problems. Based on simple tests and my health history presented to him, the doctor prescribed some medication and I have to follow up with him in two weeks. Hopefully everything will go well.
the doctor did not spend more than 5 minutes with me he did not even take time to speak with me I think he could have verify my condition a bit more instead of making another appointment for 1 month.
The Dr. was excellent. The wait time was horrible
Dr. Gluck was professional and courteous. While the wait time was longer than I'd hoped, the appointment was worth the wait.
So far so good he was very nice and everyone on the staff was very friendly and efficient
Wait time was average. Dr Gluck was friendly and patient to answer all my questions. Overall a pleasant experience and I would recommend him!
Dr. Gluck was extremely attentive and thorough during the initial consultation and subsequent follow ups and phone calls. Would highly recommend Dr. Gluck to family and friends looking for a highly professional, easily accessible doctor.
Dr. Gluck was courteous, attentive and highly professional in dealing with an extremely sensitive issue. His comprehensive approach with respect to the medical issue reflected his expertise in his field.
Excellent bedside manner. Very upfront and extremely helpful
Recognized my problem very quickly and knew who to see to treat it (after he diagnosed my problem, it was clear it was outside his expertise). He called his recommended specialist for my problem personally, on his cell phone, and made sure I got an appointment right away. His sense of humor is great, too.
Not very good
The setting was not as comfortable as I am used to in a doctors office.
He was excellent.
I couldn't ask for more. He was incredibly nice, sensitive and knowledgeable. I hate visits to the doctor but he really put my mind at ease right away. His staff was also super fast and friendly.
My second time seeing Dr. Gluck and as with the first time he was patient, knowledgable and proficient with his care of me. Definitely recommend him!
Waited over an hour, was given less than five minutes, was not examined, told to make another appointment in two weeks, which I did. Long wait, short examination, no explanation, just handed a prescription and told to come back in a month. Doctors bedside manner is nonexistent.
Understanding staff quick service, and didn't feel pressured or uneasy. I look forward to working with him as a provider.
Very good doctor!
Dr. Gluck is great, but the office is not well run. They had no record of my Zoc Doc appointment, I waited 90 minutes, the staff was rude at best and the only question his staffed asked was "can I make your next appointment?" Once I saw Dr. Gluck he was great, very friendly, knowledgeable and asked a lot of questions.
Fast and efficient! Right on the money for NYC people.
Dr. Gluck listens well, pays attention to details and makes educated and adequate decisions based on acquired information.
The doctor had a good bedside manner. Was quick in his review (maybe a bit too quick) but overall impressed with his willingness to listen. He understood where I was coming from, so he took that into consideration as part of his review.
The doctor himself was great. He was friendly and very apologetic about the fact that I had to wait an unacceptably long time. However, his staff was terrible...5-6 assistants in the waiting room and I still had to wait almost an hour because they took way too long to process my insurance. It should have taken 5 minutes.
He was rude, condescending and dismissive.
Comprehensive examination, very courtesy and professional
Office is a bit of a madhouse but he was a good doctor. No problems.
Pretty nice experience over all.
As always Dr.Gluck was pleasant to speak with. Dr.Gluck takes his time explaining everything and that is a virtue in our times!
Excellent attention and knowledge; very empathic and helpful.
Very nice and efficient doctor. I would recommend him.
Warm and caring doctor. He took the time to explain the procedure beforehand and afterwards he again took the time and patience to explain the results.
He was most pleasant and very confident. Most of all appreciated the promptness of granting the appointment
Great, Fast and efficient.....
The Doctor is an excellent man, he listens very well and aswered all my questions. The staff members are also very wonderful people, please keep the good work
He is very professional and felt very confident with him
Doctor seemed in a bit of a haste, but handled the medical problem appropriately
