Dr. Matthew G Glidden has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

If it was possible to give a negative star rating it would be negative 5. Dr Glidden is the worst DR I have ever had to deal with. He is in it for the money and nothing more. He told my brother in law that he has no choice but to give up and die. He did this while he was alone and family was 4 hours away. He told him to continue dialysis treatment is inhumane because he will never get better. He promised us that if he gives up and dies that he will keep him pain free until he dies. Nurses called and called him to tell him that he needs to give something stronger to help but he refused to come see for himself. Finally we called Archie from Palliative Care who is amazing and made him 100% comfortable in his last days. Upon passing away, Dr Glidden came in and said, he is gone, call a mortuary of your choice and tell him to pick up the body (really, his name is TOM, NOT THE BODY) here and walked out. Dr Glidden himself, told us that 10% of his patients leave the hospital. If you are given the opportunity to get Dr Glidden off your case, JUMP at it. We were not given that chance.
Dr. Glidden was assigned to me during a recent hospital stay. I found his manner to be arrogant, rude and uncaring. He was unwilling to listen to my concerns or to explain his diagnosis or treatment options. He seemed to base some of his decisions for my care on assumptions rather than facts. I would not allow him to be assigned to me again.
