Specialties

Dr. Gary Glass has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Beware

Dr Glass is a horrible man!!! I wish I could be more specific but I cant. He takes terrible advantage of his female patients in the worst possible way! It makes me sick to see that he is still in practice. Please do nothing to him under any circumstances.

Two Stars

I agree about Dr.Glass' poor service. I have gone in multiple times to address anxiety and he ignored my concern and simply tried to up my dose on my mood stabilizer. I did not feel I was being heard. I have been charged an outrageous amount for prescriptions (each being $5 even at appointment) and any note ($20) for school. He takes anything he can get money wise and I feel he does not sincerely care during sessions. Also, there is also absolutely no way to communicate with him and it is all via office staff and this makes me uncomfortable due to confidentiality.

Thank you Dr. Glass

I was shocked to see the negative reviews here, since my experience with Dr. Glass has been life saving. (And I am not exaggerating). Before I began seeing Dr. Glass, I was in a severe depression, was having severe mood swings, and was having suicidal thoughts. He correctly diagnosed my condition as bipolar II (which two previous psychiatrists had missed), took me off one med that was aggravating my mood swings, and put me on another. I feel like myself again after 20 years of being in a very tenuous mental state. Medications for any mood/mental health disorder are tricky at best because so little is known about how the brain processes them (and they work differently for everyone). This means that the first, second, or even third medication might not work well or might cause side effects. When that happened with me, I called Dr. Glass's office and scheduled another appointment rather than waiting until my next scheduled one, and we tried something different. Not only did we find the right medications, I was able to cut back or eliminate some of the meds I was needing for anxiety and sleep.
